Today's word is New..
The word today is new... so let's talk.

New... some folks are afraid of the new, they cling to the past like it something worth keeping and perhaps it is.
But today I was at a funeral and a good man died.
I have a friend who lost a mom, and the grieving process is slow and hard.
The past holds us tight sometimes.
it's hard to move toward the new, the new of having that loss in your life.
IT IS A STRUGGLE.
I know it.
I see my dad lying in a nursing home bed with his wife (my mom) at his side and I know sometime I will have to let go of the old and move toward a new existence without one and then both of my parents. it's hard thing to contemplate, but one must you know.
If you don't, the struggle is harder.
And I was thinking as I ponder the word new... how this newness is made better in the knowing that the lost loved one knows the Lord truly.
My folks LOVE the Lord. The man buried today served the Lord all his life. My friends mom... she knew God and was ready to go home. T'is a good thing that.
Today, if you know someone moving from that old into a new way to live. Love up 'em. Hold them close as sometimes that struggle is a hard one.
