|"A Turtle Sunbathing"|
While packing, it dawned on me, not that I didn't know it, but that he'd died, passed away, is gone. Unfortunately, the sadness of loss overwhelmed me for the rest of the day. I got the work accomplished as planned, but I was sad because he passed away suddenly and at a young age.
This morning as I was thinking some about yesterday, I realized it's alright to miss someone as long as you don't let it become a focus of your life. Also, when those moments that you feel alone, due to a loss, it's great to know that God is with you. He will give you comfort and a peace in your heart and mind.
Fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
-Isaiah 41:10 ESV Study Bible
