When one is young, they do not think much about dying. That’s for old or older people they may say. There is some truth in that, but time does not stand still, and we all grow older from the day we are born to the day we pass. Why am I saying this? It is because my beautiful and precious wife of 47 Years left me on 14 November 2019. Never to see her again in the natural world but one day I will get to see her in the spiritual world. That end date in November 2019 will always be imbedded in my mind. All the great memories come back to me that helps to push aside that end day. Harriet and I were blessed beyond all measures to have such a great life together even though our careers kept us apart on many occasions.
Our love was so deep and so profound that nothing could get in our way of making the best of everything no matter what it was. Her parting from this earth caused a lot of grieving and I was not prepared to live alone and grieve for the rest of my life. Although the passing of one’s spouse is a very terrible thing, it is not the ending of one’s life. Things will get better if one wants them to be better. I did. Life is too short not to be happy and enjoy all the countless blessings God gives us daily. If you have experienced a loss of your spouse or love one, look to God to help comfort you in your time of need. I did and today I am thankful and happy that I can enjoy the remainder of my life until the end.
