Words of Encouragement

I woke in the night with this line from an old country song running though my mind…

“Suddenly I get that old time feeling…I can't help it if I'm still in love with you!”

Ron and I danced to this so often. It’s almost two years now and sometimes the pain is as raw as ever.

When I posted this on my Facebook page, friends posted sweet comments:

“Dance like you are in his arms, you are in His everlasting arms.”

“I can still picture him twirling you around the dance floor.”

“Those are good memories Brenda & they come when you least expect them.”

“Dance with the pillow.” (If you read The Pregnant Pause of Grief, you know this is Ron’s heart-shaped pillow that he used after his heart surgery.)

And there were many like this:

“Love and sighs, praying, I understand” and “sending big hugs.”

“Friends, do you have anything you want to say? A word of encouragement, perhaps?” (Acts 13:15b, MSG)

Prayer- Lord, help us encourage others, lift their spirits and charge them with fresh hope, the way they have done for us. In grateful thanks, Amen. (From Acts 20:2b, MSG)
