As I think back over this year, it has been a year with too many funerals, memorial services and sad losses.  
Part of it is just the age my dearest and I are at.  Friends and family our age and older have passed away.
Then there are the services we don't understand.  The funeral of a young person, or a dad that hasn't had time to enjoy his grandchildren.

So as I type this post, we are packing our suitcases for yet another memorial service.
My dear and lifelong friend Kris and her husband have lost a son.  And we grieve and hurt with them.  Yet we do not grieve as those who have no hope.  We know where Dusty is.  Enjoying the bliss of heaven, and we too will join him some day.

I know we are not alone.  Everyone I talk to has similar losses and hurts.  When Job took his case before God, instead of answers, God ask him a dozen questions?  Who flung the stars in space and named everyone?  Who tells the oceans where to stop?  Who brings the winter snow into the storehouses, and pours the rain on the righteous and the wicked?  The point is we will never understand God's ways.
 if we did...we probably wouldn't agree.

This is what I know.  I can TRUST Him with the things I don't understand, and I can OBEY Him by leaving it all with Him.

God bless each of you dear friends.

Will catch up when we get home.  


  1. Life is not easy, so sorry for your loss.

  2. Ask g God to bless you as you bless and prayers from Texas.

  3. Saying a prayer for your friends and all who are hurting over this loss. You and your husband provide a lot of comfort because of your faith, trust in God, and sure hope for the future.

  4. Oh Wanda, I'm so sorry for the loss of Dusty. Will pray for all of you as you grieve. (((hugs)))

  5. Wanda, I am so sorry that your friends have lost their son. I was interested in your story about Job. I knew all of that because I have read it several times over the many years, but I never thought of it in regard to my questions to God. I may see my questions to God in an entirely new light. Thanks for sharing. Love ya!

  6. I am so sorry for your loss. Sending my love to you and Don.

  7. Hi Wanda, that's hard, dealing with so much loss. But your faith does help you through it which is comforting.

  8. I'm so sorry. Sending love and safe travels. I know Kris and her family will love having you there!

  9. You and Don will be a huge support to them, I know. So very sorry for your loss and for their loss. Hugs to you. (((((xo)))))
