Time to Think

Well, I've missed another week of work with a pulled muscle in my back, but am choosing this time to listen for God's voice in the quiet. He's so good to me & my family.

I've been reading a blog from a couple who lost both their precious children in an automobile accident last July. Their faith humbles me. Their grief reminds me of my own - so unexpected at times and quite overwhelming in its strength.

However, we have a hope that those who don't know Christ don't have. We KNOW we will see our precious loved ones again. And in our imaginings we can see them laughing, joyful, whole, in the presence of Jesus.

For to us, to be absent from the body is to be present with Jesus (2 Cor. 5:8). That's where they are now, and where we will be one day. Oh how I long for that day!!! But for now will continue to have hope in the One who sustains me day by day.
