My dear husband and love of my life--Drew--passed away March 2. His death was so unexpected, and I miss him every minute. I'm in the process of writing a book about grief, loss, and recovery: Suddenly Gone! Grieving to Healing. As a daily devotional, my book chronicles my struggles, emotional upheavals, and my painful and awkward steps toward recovery. Yes ... he's suddenly gone! Now what? In the book, I dig into God's precious Word for comfort, guidance, help, and wisdom. Every day is a new journey without my husband, and God is fashioning me toward a new purpose. There's a saying: As long as we keep our loved ones in our hearts and memories, they never die. Suddenly Gone! has become my daily reprieve, my daily investigation into what God wants me to do from now on without Drew, and my moment-by-moment dependence on God. God says, "Come to me, all you who are weary, and I will give you rest." Rest in peace my dearly beloved husband. You are now in our Maker's brilliant and holy presence. Wow! What a glorious eternal life you are living now! And one day, we will see each other again. That is God's promise. "Believe on me," Jesus says, "and you will have eternal life." Amen.
