Ice storm a week ago Sunday. Snow last Saturday. Blizzard now. Welcome to Winter in Connecticut. And here are some snowmen past and present to enjoy while you wait for the storm to clear.
It’s been a tough 10 days. I take great comfort in knowing that the 3 friends who have died, Spence, Pete and Brandi, all loved the Lord with all their hearts and are rejoicing in Heaven with Him who heals all hurts and eases all pains.
Understanding death doesn’t come easily, whether you are young or old. Accepting death as a part of life is something you grow into I think.
I heard Spence was sick and thought of what a full, wonderful, varied and godly life he led. I knew Peter was ill and his great-grandson was born. The “Circle of Life” and all that jazz.
Brandi, well, that’s another story. Trying to understand why the Lord calls home someone with a husband and 2 small children is difficult. All I can say is that I know without a doubt that what the Lord wanted her to do here on earth was done and she did it well.
Here are some words from folk more eloquent than I.
In my Father’s house are many mansions: it if were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. – John 14:2 (KJV)
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish; Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. – Thomas Moore.
‘Suffering should not make us bitter people,’ my mother once said, ‘it should make us better comforters.’ Young people need to hear this from those who have walked before them, because someday they’ll be walking those same steps, there may not be anyone following behind. – Billy Graham
God will not permit any troubles to come upon us, unless He has a specific plan by which great blessing can come out of the difficulty. – Peter Marshall
Praying for many friends and their extended families this month. May they hold the memories of their loved ones tight and cherish them in their hearts to sustain them through the difficult days ahead.
