Susan, I decided to take you up your suggestion, and I'm writing about my husband.
friend is my
of more than
years. He is the love of my life. Of course,
He's not perfect. He's only a man, but he has
been my comfort zone, my safe haven through
all the storms that life has brought. He's been there
through sickness, grief, and poverty. We shared all
life had to offer. He helped me carry the loads and
to stand against all the storms. If God were to take him home, I would surely miss him. Could
I live on without him? I know it would crush
my heart and I would morn him every day that
I lingered on. He would be in my thoughts every moment. I would miss his touch, warmth, smile,
and his presence. My heart would ache
every instant that I lived passed
his demise. How could I go on
without him? I really don't know
if I could. I adore him with all
my heart. He's my soul mate.
Oh Lord, I pray, if You must,
take both of us. That we may
walk hand in hand together
into Your realm and dimension.
May we see Your face jointly. I
don't want to con- front this world
alone. Though if you must take
us separate, give us the strength
and show us how to go on alone
with our faith in You intact
and with Your love and care
buried deep within our
souls. So we may live
on with the faith that we will
see each other again and will be
together and live on in peace.
I love you Lord, but I know him
as flesh of my flesh. Yet, You're in my soul

|Patricia, this is indeed truly beautiful as you are. Yes, he may be worldly, but he is very worthy of the love and devotion that you show to him. Just keep right on lovin' him for who he really is; I'm sure God will do the same, and both of you will have a positive influence on him.|
