thoughtful thursday: joy for mourning

“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.” Isaiah 61:3

a friend quoted this scripture on her blog in her post on 9/11 and being brave enough to move forward in times of darkness. i thought it was beautiful and wanted to share it as well. thank you EKD.
