The Squirrels Adventure
NO BIRD SEEDS TODAY BUT I WILL BE BACK!
To make this short - I'm sorry, I'm late in reading and responding - but with the kids home for the summer - the faster I go the behinder I'm getting - but I'll be there.
I have a very dear friend - who was coming out here to visit me on the 25th - that has suffered a major stroke and will not be coming here now. In fact, she will probably be going home to the Lord - she is not responding to treatment of any sort. Now I just talked to her last week (!) to finalize when to pick her up from the airport. I'm not sad for her at this point because I believe with everything in my heart and soul she will be with God in paradise soon. She is a wonderful Christian gal.
Darn, I'm sad for me. I hurt. I'll miss her. I'll miss our emails, her visits, and her friendship. And I am so sad. I have no answers.
But yesterday's words from me still ring true. God is good all the time, All the time, God is good. Do I understand why. NO. Am I mad? YES. Do I question why? YES.
But this I know - somehow - it will all work out. No matter what. I don't understand. And I don't understand why others are having loved ones who are sick. But I still know this - it WILL all work out.
God is going to have a wonderful lady up there - maybe there will be a miracle here - but her family doesn't think so. And the earth will lose another fabulous person.
As Tammy at the Northern Nest reminded me of this - "The sun is still shining even if there is a cloud in front of it...it is hard to believe sometimes, but that doesn't change that fact."
So you never ever know from one second to the next. Love and live now. Love, Chatty Crone
