Choosing

We widows reach a point where we need to choose…. the past, the future, the now, or just stopping.

All of these options have been before me, calling me, singing a siren call. And followed I have to some degree, the siren call of each path. The past only brings me pain. The future envelopes me in anxiety. And just stopping… well, that’s a path that leads to painful, distraught, slow daily dying.

The now. I sense God’s presence in the now. I sense God’s love in the now. In this now, I sense God’s healing, guidance, joy, peace, and hope. Sincere living, honest with myself and God… feeling the feels, screaming the anguish, crying the sorrow, holding on through shock, facing reality, accepting healing, opening to peace, filled with love, sharing love. Seeing me for who I truly am at this moment…. brings me to seeing God with me in this moment… brings me life.

I choose life….

The truth shall set you free… Jesus (John 8:31,32)
