So Long, My Love


My sweet husband went to be with the Lord on Sunday, May 22nd. Though my heart is broken, he is once again whole and restored, and without pain.  For that, I can rejoice and be thankful.

  4. Randi, It breaks my heart to hear this news. May the Lord bring you guidance and strengt; power for each moment of weakness, hope for each moment of pain, comfort for your sorrow and peace and joy after the rain.
    God’s peace be with you and yours.

    Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 110:4-5

  13. I am so very sorry. After all you both have been through in the last few weeks, it just doesn’t seem fair. Not now whilst it is all so raw, but later try and forget this time and remember all the wonderful times.
    My heart goes out to you,
    With love and sorrow,

  14. I, too, am so sorry for your loss. At the same time I know that his brief time of responsiveness was a blessing to your and your family and has given you the opportunity to share your love for each other and to say good-bye. You are right, he is whole now, and still loving you all. My prayers continue for you.

    “I Will Rise” by Chris Tomlin

    There’s a peace I’ve come to know
    Though my heart and flesh may fail
    There’s an anchor for my soul
    I can say “It is well”

    Jesus has overcome
    And the grave is overwhelmed
    The victory is won
    He is risen from the dead

    [Chorus:]
    And I will rise when He calls my name
    No more sorrow, no more pain
    I will rise on eagles’ wings
    Before my God fall on my knees
    And rise
    I will rise

    There’s a day that’s drawing near
    When this darkness breaks to light
    And the shadows disappear
    And my faith shall be my eyes

    Jesus has overcome
    And the grave is overwhelmed
    The victory is won
    He is risen from the dead

    [Chorus:]
    And I will rise when He calls my name
    No more sorrow, no more pain
    I will rise on eagles’ wings
    Before my God fall on my knees
    And rise
    I will rise

    And I hear the voice of many angels sing,
    “Worthy is the Lamb”
    And I hear the cry of every longing heart,
    “Worthy is the Lamb”
    [x2]

    [Chorus:]
    And I will rise when He calls my name
    No more sorrow, no more pain
    I will rise on eagles’ wings
    Before my God fall on my knees
    And rise
    I will rise
