Day 9: Forever Life


It HAPPENS to everyone.

The young.

The old.

The in~between.

Not a pretty word.

Death.

We enter the world with a cry

and when we leave this earth

there are cries

from our loved ones who are left behind.

This just HAPPENED

to one woman,

who I was so blessed to

be able to spend time with,

who always left a smile on my heart

after I was in her presence,

because of her

SWEET SIMPLICITY.

A SIMPLICITY that was oh so

gentle

and

kind,

that made her so powerful,

as she stood by her man

through everything,

and as he stood by her side

for 60 years of marriage.

GOD was so KIND to her

when her memory started to fail,

as her chuckle always remained.

Tears fill my being

as I think of her family

who are left behind.

As I am friends with one of her daughters,

who I had the privilege of experiencing

a pure love

between a daughter and a mother,

as she loved her mother with all her heart,

as she

catered to her needs

with the same

SIMPLICITY that carries that

power

to spread

the gentleness

and the kindness

that is contagious.

Marge touched my heart

with her SIMPLICITY of spirt.

Not wanting for anything,

as a "stand behind the scenes" kind of woman,

as she enjoyed her

SIMPLE pleasures

of collecting shells

looking at the ocean

petting her pets

playing Uno

loving her daughters

and

her grandchildren

and

her great grandchildren

and her

husband,

her life partner.

Oh the sadness of DEATH hits us all,

and it has over the past couple of weeks,

as the loved ones of some of our friends

have also taken their last breath on earth.

The young.

The old.

The in~between.

Life is just a breath

that was given to you

on the day GOD breathed your life into you.

GOD,

who

SIMPLY LOVES LIFE

so much

that HE never stops

LOVING

the young

the old

and the in~between.

And all GOD wants is for

the young

the old

and the in~between to

SIMPLY LOVE HIM.

For GOD holds the day and the time

of your birth,

and ultimately your death,

but you hold the day and the time

when you choose to

LIVE FOREVER with HIM

that is beyond your LIFE that you are experiencing right now.

Oh the SIMPLICITY of

Marge

has reminded me of

the

SIMPLICITY

the

Gentleness

and

the

Kindness

of

GOD

whose

SIMPLE desire is for ALL~

the young,

the old,

and the in-between~

to LIVE beyond death

in ETERNAL BLISS

by

SIMPLY BELIEVING JESUS

whose

gentleness

and

kindness

invites

the young,

the old,

and the in~between

to

BELIEVE~

“I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in

ME will live even if he dies,

and everyone who lives and believes in ME will never die.."*

JESUS never forces HIMSELF on anyone

as HE ASKS

the young,

the old,

and the in~between

the SIMPLE question

that demands

a SIMPLE YES

or a SIMPLE NO.

How will you answer?

"...Do you believe this?”* (John 11:25)

For the time is now

as there is no time to waste

for your breath is held by the ONE who created you.

Will you EMBRACE

"THE GOD OF ALL YOUR DAYS"

(listen to the song below)
