In Memoriam: Donna Dickson

Today is the 6 month anniversary of Donna's passing from this life through to that blessed hope and promise of life that never ends.

On October 1, 2008 at 11:30 a.m. (according to the death certificate), Donna lost control of the car she was driving, hit a tree, and passed from this life of pain and trial.

I know that her current life is far, far better than this one ever was, even on its best day, so I would not for the life of me wish that she was back. But, I do miss her!

Perhaps it fits during these days of Lent as we evaluate our lives in the light of Christ's suffering, sacrifice, and death for us and our sin. Through all of this life's joys and sorrows, we can trust ourselves to Him because of the hope that bursts through the open door of the tomb - He lives! He lives! And, because He lives, so shall we.

The life holds no promise of tomorrow (or even of this afternoon). It is only in Christ that we have the promise of tomorrow.

Blessings,
Richard
