You Are With the Son of God
Your with the Son of God. Your with the Prince of Peace. Your with the One we are celebrating and that thought amazes me.
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
– Isaiah 41:10 (NLT) “
The righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death!” Isaiah 57:1-2
Good morning, honey. I miss you so. I know in my mind, heart, and spirit that you are celebrating with Jesus and I want, so much, to celebrate your homecoming. And I do.
I just have so much pain. It’s hardest in the morning, and the evening.In the morning, I get up and you are not there. No more poached eggs, no more sitting at the table and “just being with you”.
But, you are here. Your spirit is in this house. We built this house together and it reflects you as much as anything else.Your love is in my heart. We have had over 45 years together and put up with a lot. But, no matter the circumstances we were in it to win it.
Your spirit is in my soul. I wouldn’t be the man I am today without you. Your gentleness, kindness, love, compassion was the spark that drove me to become a better man.
The sign on our wall says “They Lived Happily Ever After”. We did. We lived happily together, and we will live happily together forever, even if you are here in spirit.
I will grieve my loss of you forever. But this I promise you, your love, your spirit, your hope, your kindness will live on in me. Whatever God has in plan for me, I will do. But, I will do it with a strength that comes from you.
I love you to the end and back, sweetie.
But, I still cry out “I want my Honey back….”. Is that OK?
