I am sitting in the Detroit airport on my way to North Carolina to be with my friend. Her son passed away a couple months ago, and I promised I would come to her now. It is now that she would need me the most.
Trust me I know this. You see when you lose a child, or a loved one, everyone is there for the first few weeks. People can't do enough. Which is WONDERFUL!!!!. You are in shock and dis belief and you forget to eat, shower, etc. So having them there to help you through this difficult time is a blessing.
But once they leave and you start to come out of that "Fog" you have been in, you look around and think, :What in the world just happened?" I find that is the time that I needed people the most.
The flight from the Sault was a little scary. We were on the runway waiting for 20 minutes or so because there were lights lit up on in the cockpit that weren't supposed to be on so they had to have the mechanic look at it. Now, I don't know how you feel but, they could of kept that to themselves. Something I don't want to hear just before I'm taking off.
Now I'm never afraid to fly. But today, I have to admit I was after I heard that. But I found myself talking to the Lord. Asking him to take care of us and help us to have a safe flight. I found myself saying a scripture that has kept me going all these years through every thing our family and friends have been through. So I have chose it as the Scripture of the day. I even have this one tattooed on my arm. :-)
Philippine 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."
Strength. We all need the strength that good gives us to live in this world. We also need the Hope for the wonderful home we will all be going to someday.
I would also appreciate it you all can keep my family in your prayers today as they bury my cousin CJ.
