173 weeks since you’ve been gone 😞 love and miss you husband ❤️

As long as I live

As long as I breathe the air

He lives on in me

Attaining stillness

One cannot help but be moved

By our beating hearts

Happy New Years Eve 2019

The hands of time

Tick tocking the moments away.

Soon,

The final chapter

Of this book will be written,

The last period put in place.

And the book will be closed.

Reflection will follow.

There were stormy seas

That pounded and tried to break me.

There were times of peaceful calm,

When all seemed right.

What I have found

On this journey,

Is that my life

Is/was somewhere in the middle.

The rough seas help make me stronger.

The calm revitalizes.

In the middle, I find a cohesiveness

That makes my life’s journey

Explicitly my own.

The book is closed now.

A new one ready to be written.

While I hold the pencil ( I like to have the ability to erase)

God will guide my hand

and help me turn the page,

Let the journey continue.

Happy New Years Eve Folks!! This gal is under the weather, so I’ll be snuggling in with meds, tissues and Philip 😻

There’s gonna be a whole lot of reflection going on, a decades worth 😳 as I say bye bye 2019 and hello 2020. It boggles my mind to think that 2020 will be the fourth full year that Jim isn’t here. So much change, growth, transformation has occurred in my life. The me-myself and I, I am today, is unrecognizable of who I was at the end of 2016. I know he’s proud if me. I’m proud of me.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

30 Days Of Gratitude…Day 22

Day 22 Thankful and Grateful for my Now

This instant—this one now—is always your life’s beginning, a fresh chance to start living your destiny.” ~Unknown~

This quote popped up in my memories so I decided to pair it with this photograph I took the other day while on my Soul Stroll. The Now of this leaf’s life was to share its autumnal color and beauty with me. It’s nearing its end, yet Is this the leaf’s final destiny?! Nope, for through decomposition, it will continue to live on, giving its nutrients to the soil.

Which got me remembering how I’ve tried living and reliving the past, and then having to ask myself, how’s that working for you Linda? 🤷🏻‍♀️ and of course I’ve tried living for the future, waiting for that something better to come along, all the while life was passing me by…….

So, I choose to live my life Now, to embrace it and appreciate the moment. The ups, the downs, the curves and detours, because I know God has it mapped out, and with Faith, I follow 👣knowing exactly where my final destiny will be ✝️

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5)
