Time goes by so quickly.
Way too fast.
I started writing this post last Saturday .. It marked 10 weeks since my friend Lyndall went to heaven.
I hadn’t even finished the introduction and it’s Saturday again.
One week later …
So that title should really read
‘E L E V E N’ ..
And doesn’t that perfectly illustrate just how quickly time goes by ?
In that week, so much .. and possibly, so little – has changed.
Pregnancies announced at work.
Nice lunch dates in beautiful locations. Victories gained for family members. New challenges. New triumphs .
Life goes on .. But … I wish it would slow down … I don’t want it to go on as normal – when my life has changed so much …
There are days when I just long for my friend to be here .. just a phone call away. Just ‘down the road’, as she put it ! (3.5 hours down the road is the reality) ..
There are times when I want to scream how much I am hurting inside.
I wonder why no one seems to even notice?
Am I so good at seemingly just ‘getting on with it’ ? If so, I dont intend to be fake.
You might think I’m a trooper . . or stoic .. or tough … but I’m definitely not.
What keeps me going is the simple knowledge that God is in control – no matter how things look to me. I may not even fully understand that – but what I do know, based upon my past experience with Him, is that He keeps his word. That – He – is definitely – trustworthy.
So … if you’re scared .. Or you doubt .. or if you are just plain inquisitive . . Can’t hurt to talk to Him right ?
Ask God to show you who He is …
Seriously – what have you got to lose ?
PS .. you don’t have to be perfect.
Just honest with yourself about not being able to do life all on your own ☺ because truly …
No one has it all together .
Isaiah 51:6 NIV
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, look at the earth beneath; the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die like flies. But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail.
