The School of Life and Such...

2009 has brought with it the feeling that I am cramming for finals. The only problem is, the class seems to be The Art of Dying 101.

Since I have long resolved that Jesus is sovereign and there is something to be learned in all of life's experiences, I am left pondering just what Papa has for me in all this!!

If He wants me to contemplate the brevity of life and try and make each day's working. If He wants me to learn to have an eternal perspective and not be so focused on the trivialities of's working. If He wants to develop a deeper compassion in's working. If He wants me to learn at a deeper level to mourn with those who mourn and rejoice with those who's working.

Maybe there's more...I guess time will tell. In the meantime, I am thankful His love for me is so deep that He feels the need to continue to refine me and gently school me in the mysteries of life...and death!

  1. The ART of Dying 101

    You have truly added beauty to the way one can handle death in their life. Thank you for showing us all He has shown you and sharing these precious lives with us.

    I am sure God will bring back to mind this walk you have exampled in these situations for another to be encouraged when faced with something of the same.
