Christians – By the Book

Parting with My Love of this Lifetime

by on Jun.25, 2019, under Amazing Life, True Christianity

Paul pondered the choice to be here or to be with the Lord (2 Cor 5:1-9). Paul call it being absent with the Lord. The weight of these words came to me in full force as I held the hand of my wife of 40+ years and watched her slip from this life to be with her Lord and Savior.

Her battle with cancer (23 months) was over while my battle to remain faithful to Him is freshly renewed, every day. Jesus said this life would be full of trials and tribulations, but that He would never leave us nor forsake us. Boy he wasn’t kidding, this has been the toughest walk I have ever made and nobody can do it for you, but they can walk with you so the journey isn’t so lonely.

Our local church family has been a fine example of brotherly/sisterly love as they have rallied around me and my family, caring for our physical and spiritual needs and giving us the time to heal with them, for they have lost someone precious to them too.

It has been a long while since I have written anything and to anyone that has found this BLOG and wondered what happened, I was just putting first things first. Now that I have had some time to process this pain and the changes in my life, I now hope to start regularly contributing my thoughts about what I have learned as well as thoughts about questions you ask.
