I just left the funeral home after briefly attending a visitation. To lose someone is heart wrenching. To lose someone suddenly must be heart numbing. I see strength in her eyes that I cannot comprehend. It is amazing how she keeps her dignity in a time of grief. To know her is to know that she loves the Lord with all of her heart.
Please appreciate every moment of every day, every arguement, every conversation spoken in whispers while your heads on on your pillows, every shared meal, every squeal of delight from a child in the arms of their mom or dad, every brief moment of sweetness...because in an instant your life can change.
And to my precious sister in Christ:
The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” Psalm 121:7-8
