a month today

it is a month today since Maria left this world - and opened her eyes and saw her new eternal home ... it seems like so much longer ... yet - like only yesterday ...

thought i would share a very uplifting e-mail that i received from dayspring this morning - it blessed my heart - hope it blesses yours too!

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Psalm 68:19 KJV

 Today is your best day because you can grow a little more in your faith, a little more in your maturity, and a little more in your intimacy with Jesus. Today you can take another step higher as He takes you from glory to glory.

 Corrie Ten Boom once said, "God doesn't have problems; He only has plans." God doesn't make bad days for you and good days for you. God makes each day fit perfectly into His plans for you.

 There are two ways that we can walk through a day. One is to walk by sight, and the other it walk by faith. To walk by faith means to walk in the truth of God's word and the presence of the Holy Spirit who lives in you.

 Excerpt from Today is Your Best Day by Roy Lessin, DaySpring co-founder and writer.

That really is uplifting!
Hard to believe it's been a month, but at the same time it seems so long.

I still think of Maria very often. A woman I have never met, but who touched the very heart of me. Though our heart aches at the loss, joy grows greater when I think of her new home, and her perfected body. Joy does come in the morning.

I am happy for your heart to be less burdened and that Maria is walking without the pain of her earthly body in heaven. Hugs

"One day at a time, sweet Jesus, that's all I'm asking of you,"
I love Kris Kristofferson singing this song.
May HE continue giving you grace to take one day at a time.

I can relate to it feeling like it's been a long time and yet also feeling like it was only yesterday. I still have that feeling about Steve. He's been gone for ten years now, and yet a few months ago when I got a new cell phone, I tried to add him to my contacts.
