Good morning Folks ~ It is two years ago this morning that my dear husband, lover, friend, mentor and soul mate left this planet for his heavenly home. It seems like yesterday at times and then other times like an eternity.
I’ve come quite a way since that morning. God has been and continues to be my strength each and every day. While I still miss my husband every single day, the grief of my loss isn’t as raw as it was back then. Knowing he is with Jesus fills my heart with peace. Knowing we will be together again one day gives me joy.
The following piece came in my email box the other day, in a daily devotional, but I don’t remember which one. It is perfect to post for this day.
E'en for the dead I will not bind my soul to grief;
Death cannot long divide.
For is it not as though the rose that climbed my garden wall
Has blossomed on the other, side?
Death doth hide,
But not divide;
Thou art but on Christ's other side!
Thou art with Christ, and Christ with me;
In Christ united still are we.
My love continues to grow for Mark, as I remember our life and love together.
My love for Jesus grows as He continually draws me closer to Him.
One day Mark and I will be reunited.
Until then may I age and grow gracefully in God’s tender love and care.
“Love is Forever”
