Okay, so today won't be exactly wordless but I'll keep it short and sweet:
On Monday, My Farmer and I, along with an estimated 1200 people over the course of the visitation and funeral, laid one of our friends, Jen, to rest. Jen was battling cancer for the 5th time over the last six and a half years and became the ultimate survivor thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ a week ago. Going to any funeral is hard, but saying goodbye or even see you later to a friend who had so much drive and compassion is really hard. Driving home from the funeral it sank in a little more to me that Jen wasn't going to be here on Earth anymore. I wouldn't be getting text messages from her, or wouldn't be sitting next to her at meetings, or going to one of her parties. I thought about how beautiful the weather was and how it was days like today that Jen would want to get home as soon as her kids got home from school, sit on her patio with her husband and enjoy life.
Then we got home and the first thing I noticed - my first tulips of the year had bloomed. Right then I knew it was Jen telling me that she was okay and that everything will be okay. Over the last couple of days I've turned to a saying that I have turned to a lot when things in life aren't going to way you wish, that I'd like to share with you:
"Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end."
- John Lennon
What quotes or bible verses do you turn to when life isn't going as planned or imagined. Remember to Comment for a Cause!
Really friend, life just has to go on. Even at any type of lost, be it lost forever in whatever form, we just have to go on and same as what John Lenon had said, it's okay!ReplyDelete
I know it will all be okay. I have no doubt.Delete
This was beautiful. Hugs, dear.ReplyDelete
Hugs. You have suffered a lot of deep losses in this new year and it is so difficult but what a blessing to know that we are not alone and that yes---Jen is with her Lord. It does not take the hurt and loss away but at least it may give some comfort. Love you.ReplyDelete
It definitely gives me comfort and peace.Delete
Hugs to you! This is beautiful and oh so very true!ReplyDelete
