So what do you do when your heart breaks, how do you go on and find strength? Where in this crazy, mixed up world can one find answers, peace and understanding? Only in Him!! He is the only strength, He is the Prince of Peace, He is the Rock on which I cling, for our world shattered Nov 11, the day my father in law left this earthly world for a higher place with our Lord. I can’t forget his final words to me…he stretched his arms out, sat up in bed and stated “I am Free”, he squeezed my hand, winked, smiled and sank back into his pillow, I did not know how precious these words would be, as in just a few short hours we were called back to his side, only to find out we were too late, he was already gone. It has been said that we know ahead of death what is coming, we may get just a moment, or hours, even days, but I believe He the Creator lets us know ahead so we can speak love to the ones left behind. I find comfort now that I know he is walking with my Savior, and that he is in no pain, nor will he shed a tear!!! Thought for today: Psalm 55:4-8 My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death assail me. Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me. I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest- I would flee far away and stay in the desert; I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm.”
So now I sit with heavy heart wondering why? If I could do again, would I change anything? I know deep in my heart and soul, I would do this!!! I would write, for it is all I can ever think about, stories just pop into my brain, characters just show up and have a moment of time in my mind. I wonder if this is what happens to all writers? They have all these other people and thoughts, storylines, plots that never end, wanting to come out, wanting to show themselves, revealing slowly or quickly. I now know that I am to write of everyday life as related to the Bible. The one and only truth.
