I wonder ~~ is “enjoyed” the right word when I try to describe writing these past years since my Loren stepped on Heaven’s shores and met his Lord face to face? It has really been ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~”a journey”~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~. One I will never forget. I am so grateful though that the Lord does not allow us to see ahead what we are going to be facing – I don’t believe we could handle it. As we take each step, we find we can handle it but more than a step at a time – – – – – – I don’t know about that.
Writing was an outlet for me – allowing me to vent – that is so important when you have lost that mate. Yes. I know. All losses are HORRIBLE. But the mate is so difficult because you are definitely left alone for all practical purposes. Decisions, both good and bad are yours to make. How do you figure things out? How do you know when to say “no” and “yes”!!
Fix your eyes on Jesus is the best advice I can give you. it is the only advice really. Jesus Christ was the same yesterday (when Loren and I were happily married), today (when our lives are no longer sharing in this world) and forever (when the earthly cares of both of us are over – the wrongs and the rights – the goods and the bads – the spiritual highs and the spiritual lows – every thing – will be behind us and all of eternity levels out for us as we share at the Marriage Feast of the Lamb and forever we will worship and praise our Lord. I can’t comprehend that because I still have my earthly mind. But I know that I know that I know.
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him”. 1 Cor. 2:9. (I have a dear friend from the Wpg. years, who celebrated her 100th birthday this past year and this was one of her favorite verses.) Mine too. We truly cannot comprehend AT ALL what God has planned for us – – for His own. I can tell you though, it will be “out of this world”.
In His Hands and On His Road , from here to eternity. Marge
