Thank You, LORD, I have awaken to another day; a rainy, lovely, Lower Alabama day.
A Guidepost devotion, November 1, 2018 written by a man speaking of his brother as he thanked the LORD for the memories — his brother was with JESUS. And he missed him so but he was grateful for the memories. They were everywhere! He encouraged us that love lives on. He encouraged us to find comfort in the memories and as we do we make memories for others. Good memories.
Then we began a name search. And we found him!
Gone at 60. How can that be? We only just learned of him! We expected to find him in Portland. We found him in his legacy.
One day each of us will be gone.

One day our pens, our keyboards will go silent but our words, especially our written words will remain. And someone will come along on a day certain and find us! And they will rejoice! We hope!
John 14 (TLV) 14 “Do not let your heart be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? 3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to Myself, so that where I am you may also be. source
