Our Covid Journey — When a Man Loves a Woman

 "So she became his wife, and
he loved her."
Genesis 24:64

 I have a man who sings me to sleep at night. 
One might think he carefully chose the songs, but 
they were too perfect for a human mind to put together.
 God The Holy Spirit, filled Dan with words of 

I needed to breathe.
My body was not cooperating.
covid-19 ate away at my lungs
as God and Dan filled my heart with His love and His song.

 We clung to each other, as 
we clung to the Lord, 
devastated, but
 filled with hope and faith and trust as 
my condition declined.

We knew and believed the truth of Romans 8:38-39:

"I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love.
Neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons,
neither our fears for today
nor our worries about tomorrow —
not even the powers of hell can separate us from God's love.
No power in sky above or earth below —
indeed, nothing in all creation
will ever be able to separate us
from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord." 

Death can come at any time.
We rested in God's Sovereignty and love.
Thankful that over fifty years ago
I became Dan's wife, and he loved me.
Dan became my husband, and I loved him.
No regrets.

In life and in death
Jesus is our Savior.  
 He loves us and we love Him.
God placed a song in our hearts,
and so we believe and we breathe and we sing! 

Perhaps you know someone who needs a song today.
Don't wait to love the people you love.
