When a loved one passes, somehow the daily struggles seem less important. The real things- loving spouse, loving family, loving the life you’ve been given – come into focus. When you realize you can’t go back, when the “I love yous” have been said and the flowers gathered – then you know what’s real.
Yes, life goes on, but it’s never the same. And the thoughts, memories and joys have to sustain you.
If you know Jesus, then it’s not forever. It’s just for now that you say “goodbye.”
For God so loved the world that he sent His only begotten son that who soever believeth in Him shall not parish, but shall have ever lasting life. John 3:16
