It’s been a rough week. It’s never fun watching someone die. It’s especially hard when it’s a family member or very, very special friend. So, it was somewhat appropriate today’s prompt from the Five Minute Friday crew was TRUST. Let’s see what we can come up with in just five minutes.
The timer is set, so let’s GO …
Death. It’s inevitable. No one escapes it. But, in addition to sadness, there is also joy … joy in witnessing a life well spent … joy another soul has found its way across the River Jordan … joy at the prospect of another soul in celestial plan.
How can I say this?
Because of trust. I trust the words of the Lord. I trust His plan. I trust His promises.
Certainly, there is sorrow, but there is celebration as well because I know — we know — because He lived, I — we — can face tomorrow. My soul, our … STOP
… souls have been entrusted to the Great Healer. And then one day, I’ll — we’ll — cross the river. I’ll — we’ll — fight life’s final war with pain. And then as death gives way to victory, I’ll — we’ll — see the lights of glory and I’ll — we’ll — know He lives!
Rest in Peace, sweet Sonni. Well done, good and faithful servant.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: The battle is already won. We just need to work it out.
