From my Prince, with love

Last week I had reserved a book at Barnes and Noble (To Dance with the White Dog - anyone read it?) and while there I decided to browse a bit. I found myself at the Devotionals section and I got this feeling that I should be there. So I said to myself, "OK Lord...I trust that if there is something here that You want me to see, You will make it known to me."

And my eyes fell on this:

And I knew this was what I was meant to see...

My Sweet Hubby always called me his Princess. And I called him my Prince..sigh...

It's taken me a few days to work up the courage to sit down with it. I knew it was going to be an emotional experience and truth be told, I am really, really tired of crying. But today was the day. And right off the bat, I get this:

My Eternal Bride

I want to reveal a sacred secret to you, My beloved. Although I am your God, I am also your eternal Husband. I will come soon to carry you over the threshold of eternity. My desire is to lift the veil from your eyes so that you might see who you really are, My Princess, My Bride. I am the Lover of your soul. I long to get close enough to give you a glimpse of My eternal love for you. If you will seek me with all your heart, I will reveal Myself to you in extraordinary ways. If you will come before Me and ask, I will give you a new hope in your heart that will change your view of Me, of yourself, and of the world around you forever.

Your Creator and Husband
Excerpt from His Princess Bride ~ Love Letters from Your Prince
by Sheri Rose Shepherd

I just feel so...loved. Thank you, Lord. What a precious gift You put in my path.

"The Lord All-Powerful, the Holy God of Israel, rules all the earth. He is your Creator and Husband, and he will rescue you." Isaiah 54:5 CEV

my neighbor who was my very close friend, in fact he was on the ambulance run to take care of me when i had my heart attack and kept me on oxegen died this morning, 53, i don't say this to make you feel bad only to say i asked his sweet wife, becky, if i could be of any other help, i had just mowed her lawn, and emptied her garbage and she said, no i will be moving in with my mom now in mt pleasant, her house has already been sold and she said it is over, how can i carry on, i hugged her and said thank god you have got the company of 5 married kids and a living mom and dad to keep you company and she said, it will never be enough, and i said i know, but i din't know, did i??????

No will never be enough. No matter how many friends and family members we have, they do not - cannot - take the place of our soulmate. The loneliness is terrible. And sad but true, the phone eventually stops ringing. Yet the reality is, you're not lonely for other're lonely for your spouse. Other people just offer a diversion, a break, from the loneliness. And when they go away, you are really and truly alone. You know the old saying, "you find out who your real friends are" - well, that is also true.

Gigi said...

Oh and Putz...I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend. True friends are rare and precious; you were blessed to have each other.

That sounds like a really neat book.
