Spinning spinning...spinning, the world is spinning, everybody around is spinning...busy, running, on the go, in overdrive, to and fro...
Then it will...
in an instant.
And it turns upside down, shakes like an earthquake and the aftermath is almost unfathomable, unimaginable-- can't be real?
The last three days have been filled with grief, for which I've kept mostly to myself, thats okay. I've have somberly and prayerfully carried on. Feeling a gaping hole for the loss of a dear friend of mine. A friend that is part of the wonderful, crazy, woven tapestry of my life. I can't hardly feel sorry for her, for I know she has passed through the glorious gates of Heaven...mostly feeling- grieving for her precious family- their loss. Feeling grateful for the precious gift of having the pleasure of knowing, working with, laughing with, having some most memorable experiences of my life with and crossing paths with Micah Hogan for the last 17 years. Feels like...my heart has been rubbed against a cheese grater. Feels shredded and wounded. I don't even want to imagine what it feels like for her husband, parents and children.
The world lost one of the most beautiful girls on Friday.
A mama to two young kids.
A young, beautiful, shining light for God.
As I've said many times- it's God's plan, not for us to understand or question. For we know everything has its season and all of those experiences (good and bad) are meant for us to grow in His Word and in our faith. Still doesn't lessen the pain of a loss, the realization and reminder of how short, sweet and fragile life is.
Realize. Treasure. Remember. Say. Do. Don't wait. Cherish.
For there is no promise of tomorrow.
