Tears and Joy...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll discuss something that isn't easy for me to deal with.

What is it?

Well, if my deceased husband, Gordon was alive, then we would be celebrating our wedding anniversary.  But, it can't be celebrated, because he is not alive.

Is this easy to deal with?

Absolutely, not.  At least, not for me.

I believe most people feel like I do, for losing someone they love.

Even though tears are not always part of me, I cry at times. 

After all, it's not easy having someone you love, die.

While other people also feel this way, I realize that we humans are not alone in our way of dealing with grief.

Why do I think this?

God showed us that Jesus was similar.

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

Yes, Jesus wept.

He wept when Mary and Martha's brother Lazarus, died.  Lazarus was important to Jesus.

Just as Gordon, my parents, my brother, and some other relatives and friends were to me.

Even though it makes me sad about Gordon dying, I'm grateful that he was a born again Christian.  For upon his death, he went to spend eternity with our Lord.

For this, I am thankful.

And, always will be.

Until next time...
