Amazing Love...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), it's not always easy for me to write about special times.  This past weekend was one of those times.

March 29th, Good Friday, would have been my wedding anniversary, had my now deceased husband Gordon still been alive.  We were married on the Saturday of Easter weekend. 

While it may not have been easy for me to deal with this heartbreaking time, two (2) days in a row, it was certainly better than feeling stressed like this, on two separate weekends.  Thank You, Lord... for helping me.

Some people think that because Gordon has been dead about three and a half (3 1/2) years now, it shouldn't be something to focus on.

To me, it's hard to not think about it, and focus on it. 

After all, unlike a friend who has remarried, or another friend who has been dating, I have no one in my life to share time with.  No one to consider a new love of my life.

Still, I am grateful. 

Grateful to God for His amazing love.  He never lets me down.  He's always there for me.  And, He always provides for me, and helps me through hard times.  For this, I'm eternally grateful!

Thinking about His amazing love, I was reminded of a song that means a lot to me.  It's called, (You Are My King) Amazing Love.  Here's a youtube link so you can listen and sing along, if you like:

Here is the lyrics to (You Are My King) Amazing Love

I'm forgiven because You were forsaken
I'm accepted, You were condemned
I'm alive and well, Your Spirit is within me
Because You died and rose again

Amazing love, how can it be
That You, my King, should die for me?
Amazing love, I know it's true
It's my joy to honor You
In all I do, to honor You

You are my King
You are my King
Jesus, You are my King
You are my King

Love is amazing.  At least, I think so.  But, the love that we have for God is nothing compared to the love He has for us.

After all, He told us in 1 John 4:19, "We love him, because he first loved us."

We couldn't possibly be loved any greater than we have been.  God loved us so very much, that He sent His only begotten Son to earth, to suffer, and die on a wooden cross, for the sin of the world... of all who will believe.

I find this amazing.  After all, none of us deserved this.  Yet, Jesus died for us, and was resurrected, so that we know that we too can have everlasting life.

Amazing.  Utterly, amazing!

Until next time...
