Is This Real

Friday, April 1, 2011
Yesterday,while we were out of town,  I was driving home with my children from a shopping day and having lunch, when that sudden thought hit me, "Is he really gone from this world?" How is that possible? He was just here?  We have had lunch with him in this place.  We ate at "that" table right there.  He bought me a purse in this store.  We have tried on clothes here every year.  We have driven this stretch a hundred times together.  Weren't we just here with him?  Didn't he just plant those flowers in our garden?  How could he really be gone? We just had a family dinner together.  We just roasted marshmallows together on the back patio.  I just helped him organize his office for this year and we were not even finished.  He just bought a bunch of nice work clothes that have not even been worn yet.  He just took Michael Anthony camping. We just had a glass of wine together. He just kissed me and said good-bye.  We just talked on the phone. He just got a new hair cut.  Wasn't our summer vacation just yesterday? Didn't we just order take-out and watch a movie on the couch together?  Where did he go? ..... He really isn't coming back.

This is real.  He really is in heaven. We really miss him but really are trying to move on each and every moment, but are only able to because of the prayers of so many people and because of God's grace that flows towards us daily.  My God is more than enough.

May all of our spiritual eyes be opened to the fact that the world beyond is more real than anything we can see with the physical eye. Lord, grant us that glimpse, grant Jene that glimpse, through spiritual eyes, through your voice and Spirit, we call upon your mercy for such. Jene, I take this moment to continue to lift you and the children up. In the mighty name of Jesus I send forth peace and strength and determination to you. I look at what is going on all around us. We are SO very close to being in the midst of what Michael now enjoys!
