More Tears... and Joy...

If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) on March 29th, you would know that something brought me tears... and joy.

What was it?

March 29th, would have been a special day for my deceased husband, Gordon and me.  As I said on that LwL entry, if Gordon were alive, we would have celebrated our wedding anniversary.

Why am I mentioning that, today?

Well, when we got married, even though it was March 29th, it was also the Saturday, of Easter weekend.

So, today... is another day when I feel tears and joy.  And, deal with grief.

Thinking about this, brought to mind, Matthew 5:4, "Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted."

Yes, blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Just as God does for me.  And, others who think the way I do.

Not just for the death of Gordon.  Or, for my parents, brother, and other relatives and friends who died.

Plus, of course... Jesus.

After all, on Good Friday, which was yesterday, it was the anniversary of Jesus' death

Jesus lost his life.  He died.

Even though it breaks my heart what was done to Jesus when he was crucified, I am thankful that He did end His life.

Yes, he could have chosen to not end His life.  But, He did.

I'm thankful that by giving his life to pay for the sin of the world, of all who believe upon Him, He created a way for us to gain salvation.

By Jesus doing this, we are truly blessed.

And, always will be if we belong to Him, and have gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ. For once our lives end, we will spend eternity in Heaven with Him.

Thank You, Lord.

Until next time...
