Well, at least for me.
It has been for the last eight (8) years.
You may not be aware of why it is a special day. Or, maybe you recall what is important to me, about this day.
On October 9th, 2009, my now deceased husband, Gordon was in hospital.
As I mentioned in the past, they didn't want him to wake up. I was told that they thought that if he woke up, then he might possibly be fully paralyzed. So, they wanted his life to end.
It was to happen on October 9th. However, things happened, that caused the delay in what they were planning to do to end Gordon's life.
So, it happened that his life actually ended about 12:30 a.m. Just a half hour into October 10th.
Just as you can understand, today is the 8th anniversary of my husband, Gordon's death.
Is this a fun day? No.
Is this a day that I can be happy? Not really.
Can I get through this day? Yes, I can.
God helps me. Not just today, but He has helped me on the same day, every past year, since Gordon died.
He doesn't just help me. He also gives me strength, to deal with the grief.
Thinking of this, reminded me of Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
Amen! I CAN do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
He gives me strength.
He helps me deal with issues in life that are hard to deal with.
Hopefully, He does this for you, as well.
If you belong to Him, He will.
And, you'll be as thankful as I am.
Thank You, Lord.
Until next time...
