Four years ago, in an instance, in just one moment, in a fleeting second, in just one sliver of time, my Man of God, my husband, my best friend left this earthly realm to begin his eternal realm.
***In an instance, three days after his heaven declaration, the first hours before dawn, peace entered the room. With his final exhales, time and the forces of darkness stood at attention in homage as the Man of God took his flight into eternal glory. ***
Far exceeding the speed of light, he instantly took flight. And since then, I have been on the flight of my life. With a legacy of love and a life filled with compassion, I remember him and rejoice with smiles and memories of a life well done.
The Man of God is in heaven, but the plan of God remains with me in the earth. And from one instance to another, my life has evolved. At a time, which could have been my saddest, God has kept His promise to never leave me. During my early morning instances with Him, He makes my name great. At my noontime instances, He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies. In my evening instances in prayer, He fills my cup to overflowing. In my night instances in thanksgiving and praise, He upholds me. And in the midnight instances, He makes me whole.
