Why have so many doors opened to me since Ron died twelve years ago? Why not when Ron was here to enjoy it too? What if Ron were still here? Would I be able to do these things?
I found some answers in scripture.
Now after John was arrested and put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the good news of the kingdom of God. (Mark 1:14)
Jesus was free to minister only after John’s influence ended. God really closed a door for one person and opened it for another.
John’s ministry door closed but his open window would soon take him into the arms of God. Jesus faced many closed faces, attitudes and hearts, but he opened the door of the good news for us all.
Ron’s door closed but I know he flew through that open window in the arms of God…That door is closed to me for the time being but one day, I too will fly through that open window.

God is not nearly as concerned about dates as we are.
Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:1-3)
