More words from the heart. Such a gift to your Dad. Thank you for sharing. So glad you are writing again.
Beautiful words from the beautiful heart of Leenda Linda. Much love to your family.
The photo of your Dad was a peaceful one. Since I don't know him, I only see with brief perspective, but the name 'Dad' says it all. Your writing laid out a template from Jesus' behavior that applies in the here and now. You are filling in those spaces.
"Well, done good and faithful servant, Linda." It would be translated to you in this season, 'Doing well, LInda, in your doing.' Strength, grace and mercy, Love, Sharon
Having read your thoughts on church and family, religion and faith, aging, I'm drawn into your words like a magnet. Perhaps it's because my birthday is next week and I am shocked at the speed at which I arrived into the age of my grandparents, long gone.
Lots of 'why didn't I?' and 'it's too late now' and 'how could I not see what to do to live and breathe my love of Jesus?' Holy Week always causes turmoil within me. Regrets haunt me. It does hone into view that life is to be celebrated in the hope of a new
day in which Love is lived inside and out loud among us strangers, familiar or removed. Truly appreciate your thoughts that reach me deep.
