A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
I had a dream……..
In my dream, James and I (my Jim and I) were having a disagreement of some kind. He would come close but frustratingly stop short of touching me and walk away. This happened a few times before he finally left, I presumed for bed.
I sat alone and felt very lonely because it had been so long, it seemed. In a typical dream solving way, I guess, I thought to myself, “I should just go and climb into bed with him. If only we could restore intimacy, everything will be ok again.”
That was when I remembered, even in the midst of my dream, with that familiar aching sensation of incompleteness, and as I came closer to waking up properly, that it would never be possible, because he is gone………..
I don’t like waking up like that…..
I wrote this a few days ago, and, yes, that sadness still lingers. It has been close to 10 years now since Jim left this world, and I still miss him.
I miss the friendship, the companionship, the intimacy, the brotherhood in Christ which was in Jim. He was part of the fabric of my life for those 25 years.
I’m so glad I had the privilege of knowing him, and finding family in Canada through him. It has been a blessing.
Today I choose to thank God for the life I have left to live, the friends I have yet to meet, my family, my current friends and my brothers and sisters in Christ who are my companions on this journey. My heart is hopeful!
God is good!
