A Death


How can a person find inspiration when someone you love dies?

Last Wednesday night, my husband died in front of my eyes.  I tried to revive him.  "Come back! You come back right now, damn it!!"

You'd think a person would listen with someone like me screaming in their ears.  He couldn't.

We'd been married nineteen years.  We shared experiences, memories, and raising a child.  He was my soul mate.  We had made plans.  We anticipated every day together.  We had dreams and goals...


Crush.  Numb.  Hollow.  Those were the only feelings I experienced while watching my darling husband die.  What's left????

"He will swallow up death forever.  Adonai Elohim [God] will wipe away the tears from every face" (Isaiah 25:8).

My husband is with Jesus.  Heaven must be magnificent for him, and he's not suffering anymore.

That's God inspiring, right? 

Bye for today, J.P.

p.s.  Cherish every moment you have with loved ones and friends.


  1. J.P., I'm very sorry for your loss. May you and your family feel solace from God at this time. Take care.

  2. So sorry to hear of Drew's passing .... I worked closely with him at STI where he was VP-Marketing and I was VP-Operations He was a good guy and I will miss him ... We live just 2 Hrs South of you in Jensen Beach, FL but sadly did not get the chance to visit Tom Odom

  3. So sorry to hear your news. Your words of inspiration will be remembered. I hope to see you again one day soon. I will be absent from Scribblers due to travel plans for a while. I'm glad we are friends on Facebook.
