Yesterday was our 18th anniversary. Those 18 years were so full of life. There were good times and also not so good times as every marriage is a testament to. But George and I had a great love for one another. He was a special person and I learned a lot from him. George was a peacemaker and I was the one always looking for a good argument. Me, always looking for a cause to defend or a point to make. George always being empathetic to the needs of others and always giving the benefit of the doubt. Lately, I have not been so quick to assert my rights and defend all injustice. I have tried to quite myself and see things for what the truly are. I want to see with eternal eyes. I want to see in the spirit realm. Yesterday as I was asking God some questions I felt Him prompt me with this question, "Are you willing to FORSAKE the temporal, FOR THE SAKE of the eternal." Yes, Lord because eternity is reality and the here and now is a fleeting experience in which only our eternal choices remain. It is like a stripping away of what I thought really mattered, being replaced by what God says matters.
I love you all and thank you for all of your prayers.
