An attempt to declare the Glory of God for what He has chosen to do with our lives. A legacy to leave to my children in the telling of it.

Just Come Back, Jesus

My friend became a widow today. A matter of weeks ago, a different friend lost a child. I sit here numb, cried out, spiritually seeking a solid place to dig my feet into truth and hope and reality. Reality is eternity. Eternity is a long, long time. God said that He knows the plans He has for us. Good plans, even for widows and mothers whose children die. I'll wrap my arms around another grieving woman. I'll whisper more empowering words of truth. I'll add another name to my prayer list. I'll pray harder for Jesus to come back. Just come back, Jesus. No more tears, no more death, no more pain. And He will. He promised. Soon.

He will. I have intended on telling you how much I enjoyed reading your book. I think it was so well written. One ofthese days I plan to post about it!

And until He returns...keep wrapping your arms around those who weep. Miss you, my friend. And prayers are sent heavenward for you.

You wraped your arms around me with.prayer over 2 years ago when my son was killed. You in your own grief of losing your son offered me comfort. You gifted me with your books you shared your faith while I struggled to keep mine. You are still in my prayers.
