Three days ago was Survivors of Suicide Loss Day. Springville Library hosted an event, led by my wonderful friend Lisa. I watched as dozens of people reached out just days before the event to offer support and healing for those who would participate. Massage therapists, social workers, Community mental health organizations, musicians, personal life coaches, photographers, healers, teen advocates, and friends, all desiring to gift their light to others who were suffering the loss of loved ones to suicide.
The room was big and the numbers of attendees seemed small when the event organizer, Lisa, invited everyone to come and have a seat for the program.
As the musicians began to play the song they had chosen just the day before, the room was filled to overflowing with angels – loved ones from beyond the veil. “If two of you are gathered, there am I also with you,” the beautiful musicians sang. And tears began to flow. “If there are only angels, there am I also with you.” And He was there, wrapping His love and His light around the hearts of the participants.
Because the numbers were smaller than hoped – about 100 attendees and volunteers combined – each individual had an opportunity to sit with these healers and volunteers who opened their hearts to offer healing light. Precisely BECAUSE the numbers were small, miracles were wrought. God knew who he wanted in that room. “If two of you are gathered, there am I also with you. If there are only angels, there am I also with you.”
