A Break in the Action
As some of you may know, if you have seen my Face Book status, I recently suffered a death in my family and have been out of the loop for a while. By the grace of God, I am finding my way back and hopefully to a better place.
Now, when I say a better place, I don’t want you to think that I mean my just not being sad or my being over the hurt…some of these feelings will be with me until I see Jesus face to face. Rather what I’m referring to is my moving onto a better place spiritually.
All around us God is speaking. Through the very act of creation, sunrise and sunset, new growth and the anticipated harvest; and yes even in the death of my beloved sister. In this, I see His hand moving and can hear the promise of the resurrection.
Yes, my sister has left me, but not alone. I have as it were the fragrance of her life and with it, the hope of an eternity shared together in the presence of our Lord. So what we have now is not so much as a goodbye as much as just a simple break in the action. I will see her again…Think about it.
