Some goodbyes feel worse and are longer. Those goodbyes are the ones when we lose someone to death. Those are tougher and more challenging. But they can also bring inspiration to our lives. They give us opportunity to grow and make changes or, at the very least, evaluate to be sure we are making the right choices in our lives.
I'm especially sad today for a little family who is losing their 2-year-old angel baby to cancer. They have fought valiantly and faithfully to save this little doll. They are coming to the end. They weren't able to experience the joy that her healing would have brought. So, they have the horrible path of losing her. They know they will see her again and she will no longer be in pain. We have prayed for healing for dear little Bailey. Now we pray for comfort for her family: dad, mom and brother.
While death is sad and difficult, it can bring relief. Sweet Bailey won't be in pain any longer. She will be brand new in her glorified body. We say goodbye, knowing we will see them again.
I want to thank God for opportunities and for these things that inspire us to keep on and keep loving. I hope that because of the lives of ones I've known of or loved I can be better. I pray that I will be thankful for my life and all who are in it and that I can love with the love of God.
That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus
and believe in your heart that God has raised Him
from the dead, you will be saved.
For with the heart one believes unto righteousness,
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
