When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O death, where is thy victory?
O death, where is thy sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Cor 15: 54-57

Where is the sting of death?
In my heart, in missing loved friends and family whose days on earth have ended.
In my heart too, the death of relationships, especially being cut off from family.
But I await the resurrection when all will be made whole again and only love will endure.
