Final Moments

I had this thought today, while I was sitting in church this morning listening to our pastor preach.

He was talking about all the preparation that Jesus went into days prior to his crucifixion.

He prayed a lot, he broke bread and had wine with His disciples, and fellow shipped with those whom I believed He knew would be broken and lost without Him.

Little did they know just how little time they actually had with him, although Jesus did tell them on quite a few occasions just when it would happen, I think like most of it, we think, maybe it won't. Perhaps something can happen to change the event.

Maybe it won't be as bad as we think it will be.

During those minutes of listening to our sermon, I believe God spoke to my heart about my husbands upcoming trip tomorrow. He assured me, He has this all under his control and will be keeping watch out for Him.

Yes, I will miss him when I head to bed and fell his presence missing, leaving me alone in the dark.

But I smile, because I know God is using Him. God has plans for us.

My husband is being sent to Las Vegas, that's right sin city, anything goes as far as temptations there, and most of it's legal or at least not looked at in the same perspective as we would like to see it.

However, Steve's parents live there. They retired there recently and it's been quite awhile since he has visited them.

I see it as opportunity. I see it as time with his parents whom aren't getting any younger, both whom have had health issues, and could use some one on one time, with their youngest son.

Even though he will be working long hours, his evenings will still be spent with them. It will be a nice surprise to get some alone time, with their son again.

Who knows what will happen in the future? But for now, I will completely put my faith in trust in God and see this for the good that God has in store.

So today, we spent the day together after church.

We spent some quality time, just being alone. Just the two of us.

Reminding each other of why our relationship is so special and unique to us.

We had lunch and worked on the yard! We sat around and laughed and had some great memories shared between the two of us.

I will miss him but I know God needs him someplace else for now. I love him in so many ways not only as my best friend, my soul mate, and husband, but also my fellow believer in Christ. The days we have here together will seem like mere seconds when we get to heaven and can share an eternity with Jesus!

Sure there may be things that will be trying to draw his attention away while in Las Vegas, but with God on my side, it's a bet I am willing to make and one that is sure to win!

Sister Kat, I had answered your comments re:my latest post "The Homeless" and came here to tell you, not realizing you just posted a new one!

Amen! Amen! My heart is rejoicing knowing that the Lord has open ears, open eyes and most of all, "open heart" [this is human way descriptions so it has to be greater than these I'm sure in heavenly way :)] to His children, to those who truly seek and love Him! Glory to God!

I'm so glad that He made you see things through His eyes, suddenly, your perspective now is totally different when you talked about your husband leaving. Before, I could feel your fears, the uncertainties, the loneliness, now, how awesome that when God talked to your heart, I could just feel your joy despite the separation. Because deep in your heart, He will be there to fill that "gap". I'm so happy for you now but I need to stop writing or it would become a novel. HAHAHA. Praying for you and your family and for your husband with his family. God bless. Love to you.

Hi sister!
I am praying for you and your husband. I know God will keep watch over you two while you are apart! I am also thankful that He is comforting your heart... as our Father does so well and so perfectly! Love to you, Laurie

So nice to be back reading your blog. I pray this time apart from hubby will fly by and he'll be home before you know it. In the meantime I think you're quite right - it will be great for him to spend some time with his parents. Hang in there :)
