I do a lot of driving around to small communities as a Realtor, and I always try to pay attention to church signs when I see them. Some are quite funny, some are inspirational, and others are just heart warming. The other day I drove by this sign in front of the United Methodist Church in Nashville, Michigan and had to stop and take a photo.
The message reads ‘The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and god saves those who are crushed in spirit’. I suppose at least it is a reminder that we are not alone in our individual heart break at times, and perhaps others have felt similar sorrow. I am not a Methodist, but but the message is universally spiritual, to my hat is tipped to those who wrote it. They must be good people behind this sign. To me this message warms the heart on a cold winter morning, at least a few degrees.
