I miss you!

I miss you, your voice, your smile, your smell, your hugs, I miss your jokes and the way you made me feel.

I know you're in Heaven but I miss your everything.

Oh, that none of us would ever have to face that dreaded event of death! To be saved from ever having to face such a great loss would be wonderful.

Sometimes it is an acquaintance or neighbor. Sometimes it is someone much closer to us.

The sting is painful regardless.

However, losing our loved ones is one of the most painful experiences we will ever face, and sadly, it’s a reality to many of us already.

How often have we heard our loved ones speak words of encouragement, coaxing us to do better? Can we remember their words of affirmation that built our self-esteem and confidence? How many lessons did they teach us about living productive lives, showing us how to be good, contributing members of society?

Even when we didn’t realize it, their daily lives showed us how to care, how to nurture, how to motivate, how to work hard and so much more!

“Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.” Our 
loved ones were never in a hurry to broadcast our faults to the world. They were our protectors that didn’t overlook what we had done wrong but took the opportunity to help us learn. Their tender hearts kept in mind that we were young and would make mistakes.

They loved us unconditionally and their goal was to shape us into being our best version of ourselves.

Having been blessed with a good mother is one of the greatest privileges this life could ever afford us. It isn’t money, material, or popularity. Those things are temporal and offer no guarantees. They may aid our lives in some ways but will never replace all that our mothers have done for us internally.

Their dedication to raising us in environments filled with their love reaches beyond our childhood days. They further reach into the lives of our children and their children. Our mothers set the example and started our families’ inheritances of love in motion.

It is no wonder that we feel such a deep void when our mothers are no longer walking among us. The ache of losing these precious ladies is tangible.

God understood that it would be this way and offered us comfort from His Word.

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

The Lord knew we would hurt in many ways, including the loss of our 
loved ones on Earth. His Spirit is our Comforter until death is no more.

Let us remember to be thankful for His comfort, and thankful for our 
loved ones in our lives and those who passed away!
