Last weekend, a Benefit concert was held, to celebrate my late husbands life and to help us financially. Bitter sweet is the best way to describe it. All the bands were amazing! People traveled from places like Florida and New York. Many friends I haven’t see for years. Lots of hugs.
The next day my children and I, along with some close friends, spread his ashes at a beautiful spot that he loved. Again bittersweet.
Our lives are not at all what they used to be. My heart is slowly healing, but its healing.
Closure has come to the Frantz family. we survived the last few months. Its time to move on, always keeping his memory in our hearts. But life can not remain as it is. God has so much more for us to experience, and so much more of Him to know.
True Confession: fight feeling guilty for not feeling the way most think I should. Living is not an option, we live, we love, we laugh, we dance. Not exactly how movies portray the widow and her family.
God does not leave his children in a dark place, He rescues them, He restores hope, love, faith. He puts a song in our heart, and laughter on our lips. We are following Him thru this tragedy called life, walking into the light. This is not our home….until its our turn to be home. Don’t judge us, don’t hate what you don’t understand, and not for a second believe Scott is not loved and missed, we will see him again…Next New Normal…
There are times when quiet relection seems to be all that one can do, especially if you are a person who feels the need to do something. I am that type of person.
Lately a whole new level with the LORD has begun to open up, and following HIM is the only true option. Awareness has become a strong sense to me, and equally hard to describe. Looking in the the mirror, or a window, or water…the person who is reflected back to me, is new to me. My past seems to be seperated from me, and who i once was is a stranger to me. Healing? maybe…
Moving on with HIM, where ever this takes me. At times just surrending, lifting my arms to HIM and saying, “even if i resist, just take me”. Do you ever find yourself resisting? Wish i could say that i don’t, but too many times i do.
Its time to get on with this thing called Faith and believing, its time to blindly allow HIM to lead, and trusting that HE is good (not necessarily safe). In this time of reflection, HE reminds me over and over…”Believe me here, I do not fail you”…
This morning he woke me to a song that HE woke me with many years ago…and it touched my heart so deeply. The memories of that time flooded my heart, a time when HE was new to me, a time when things seemed very uncertain, and i time when i knew without a doubt that HIS arms and love flowed over me.
HE is the same God, yesterday, today, and forever, never changing…the God of my yesterday, today and forever…HE’s been there all along, and yes i do know HIM, and yes HE is believeable and trustworthy..
How long has it been that you have allowed silence into your home, nothing but the Word, nothing but Praise music? I promise you, its worth the effort, and a time of relecting always follows.
if you are interested this is the song that HE has waken me to…
“No, I am not talking about twitter. I literally want you to follow me.”
Found on FB, and has made me laugh, and make me think! Wow, how many times do we think we can follow Jesus like we follow someone on twitter? Twitter is for our social convenience . Jesus never said he would be convenient….Just Follow Me..literally
