My husband's father died last week after a heart-wrenching, two-year battle with lung cancer. As we honor and celebrate his life this week, it is also a reminder of how truly short this life on earth is - but also a reminder of our eternal life waiting for us on "the other side". Having gone through an incredible time of suffering myself during my postpartum time, I am so moved how the Lord moved me through that crisis of faith, renewing and strengthening me in a way I never imagined.
It is always sad to lose someone you love, and yet it's also a powerful time for reflection.
I want to share a video of a song that is one of my favorites, If You Want Me To by Ginny Owens. The words are incredibly powerful, and speak to the suffering we each have to endure as we go through this life. She sings, "But you never said it would be easy ... you only said I'd never go alone". Amen that He never leaves us or forsakes us. I hope this song touches your heart.
Thank you for visiting today.
