There comes a time in life when a little rain must fall. A moment when you witness the passing of a loved one, a friend or even a famous personality. Along with the grief, the pain, the sadness, we often sometimes ask the question, why..?
Truth be told, the only reason we don’t have an answer to that question is because we will never fully understand it.
A couple of days ago, we said our farewells to Paul Walker. Earlier today, I just heard of the loss of a very dear Friend and Father figure.
Had a spot of good advice from a friend. I believe her words were, “Its good to remember people for the great times you had with them & the joy they brought to your life.”.. Thanks Kat.
In this case, George was no exception.
When dealing with the loss of a loved one, I’m often in reminded of the words of Dr. Jesse Duplantis. “They’re not in your past, they’re in your future.”
For us Christians, this is the assurance that makes all the difference. The knowing that while the separation will hurt for a time being, that’s where the pain is limited; by time. We know that we will meet them again.
God looked around his Garden and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon his earth and saw your loving face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
His Garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best.
As the days come and go and the world moves on,
I know you’re still here, you’ll never be gone.
On the morn the Angel came and took your hand,
We cried as you left for an unknown land.
But Heaven rejoiced as you came into sight,
For your soul was a diamond, shining so bright!
