I know there is light at the end of this dark tunnel
In my prayer time this morning I was reading Isaiah 54. It’s one of my favorite passages in the bible. Today something the Lord showed me has made it even more meaningful. In verse 4 it says… “you will remember no more the reproach of your widowhood”. I looked up the word reproach and one of the definitions is “disappointment”. Only the Lord knew that’s exactly how I feel right now. On top of just missing Richard with every ounce of my being….the disappointment of all the dreams we had together no longer being possible aches my heart. But now I hang on to this promise that... somehow …. someday and in only the way that God can… I will not have this ache from unfulfilled dreams. I think of it this way… Years ago I had a miscarriage….that was such a painful time. However very soon after that I was pregnant again with my beautiful daughter. Even though I still think of that baby and know someday I will see that child in heaven. The disappointment of the unfilled dream is not there. Speaking of baby’s... I found out the day we put my beloved Richard to rest our daughter is having her first baby! He/She is due a few days before Richards’s birthday. And anyone who has read my blog for even a short time…you know I can do Grammy! LOL
Thank you Jesus for giving us beauty for ashes!
