Eleven months today. It has been eleven months since Les went to live with Jesus. God has given me the strength to carry on, even though some days are still so very hard. I miss him greatly and admit I don’t begin to understand why he had to go, but I know God is a good God with a good plan for my life. So I choose to trust Him totally and whole-heartedly. Yes, tears still come. Yes, pain still rises up in me. The simplest things tug at my heart and envelop me with a great sense of loss. It is a moment-by-moment walk. But God’s Holy Spirit, who indwells me, ALWAYS reassures me of God’s love for me, filling me His peace- the peace that passes all human understanding. Oh, how I thank God for being my strength and my fortress! This road would be much too difficult without His presence in my life, guiding me and teaching me and holding me up all along the way.
Lots of love, Sharon
