C. S. Lewis married Joy Davidman. After she died, he wrote a painfully honest book – A Grief Observed. It was his attempt to work through his grief. At one point, Lewis wrote:

She is in God’s hands. That gains new energy when I think of her as a sword. Perhaps the earthly life I shared with her was only part of the tempering. Perhaps he grasps the hilt, weighs the new weapon, makes lightning in the air. She is a right Jerusalem blade.

What a picture of God’s work in our lives – tempering, sharpening, making us “right Jerusalem blades.”
