I Lay Me Down To Weep

There is a garment that is woven with tears. A garment of praise throughout the years.

Praise you say?

How can tears represent praise?

They raise a banner of faith. Those tears say to the enemy–I have not given up. For the one that gives up is dry faced–glances bitter. Tears release the sadness within.

Tears complete the love and begin–

the process to heal.

Praise the Lord, you that weep.

Praise the Lord, as you lay thee down to sleep.

The night is far spent and soon you will see–

the loved one you cry for–

yea and soon you’ll see Me.

***************************

The silence has been long, the battle hard. Thank you all for your love and prayers. My husband went to be with the Lord on July 2nd, 2015.

He left wrapped in words and kisses of love.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.” John 3:16-17

“He who believes in the Son has eternal life; he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God rests upon him.” John 3:36

And when the Lord called him home, I felt my spirit rip. I remember saying out loud, “What is happening to me?” I felt strangely inside; something rising up within and suddenly I felt a distinct tearing and for a moment lost my breath; then he was gone.

“Then the man said, ‘This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.’ Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh.” Genesis 2:23-24

I have been shaken and I am hurting, but one thing I know…God is not through with me yet.

I miss you my love.
