I am not a fan of death but with Death comes awareness of our own mortality. Today we bury our Grandmother Phyllis Sammons. She knew this day was coming with talks of “It’s been a good life and sharing memories.” My last visit with her we had planned out a visit that never happened; God decided it was time for her to come home.
With her death I was reminded of things that were going on in my life that I hoped would change. She lived without my grandfather for 22 years. That is a long time to live without the love of your life. She never wanted anyone else. Although there was a time she considered the courtship of another man but he too died of cancer. She said, “I am glad I didn’t get too close to him. It was hard enough losing your grandfather.” I understand what she means; it is difficult to lose what you love and feel as if everything that you care for and love in this world gets taken from you. But I also know without love you have nothing. God gives us life to share his love; give love and you will receive love. I can think of many times where all I did was love on others and God brought me comfort of love when I least expected it.
I don’t know what is going on but I know things are changing and God is leading me to where I belong. God will give you the desires of your heart just surrender your heart to him.
