Another Special Day...

As I mentioned last Saturday, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), my deceased husband, Gordon and I were married on Easter weekend.

Today, Easter weekend is now over.

However, today is another special day for me.

You see, March 29th, was when Gordon and I were married. 

If he were alive, today would be our wedding anniversary.  And, this would be another time when we would celebrate having gotten married.

But, we can't.  And, there's no point in even trying to say to him... Happy Anniversary!

He's dead.

As you may have read on last Saturday's LwL entry, I mourn.  Even though it has been six and a half (6 1/2) years, since Gordon died.

Why?

Love never dies.  Even though our loved ones die, here on earth.

I miss loving him, and being loved by him, here on earth.

Is it unacceptable to mourn?  To grieve?  To cry?

Absolutely, not.

Our Lord, Jesus did, also.

Just as we read, in John 11:35, "Jesus wept."

Yes, Jesus wept.  He cried.

When?

Jesus wept, when He saw Mary weeping.

Why was she weeping? 

Mary and Martha's brother Lazarus had died.

Some people think that no one should mourn.  Or, grieve the loss of a loved one.

But, Jesus showed us, that it is normal for those who are breathing in this world, to weep.  And, to mourn.

I praise God that He has provided so that our loved ones, who have gained salvation, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, are people we will see in Heaven, after our life ends.  And, will spend eternity in Heaven with Him.

Of course, this only happens to people who have gained salvation.

Have you?

If not, you will spend eternity in Hell, separated from God.  With NO chance of escape.

Hopefully, you have gained salvation.

If so, I'll look forward to seeing you either here on earth, or in Heaven.


Until next time...
