Over the River and Through the Snow

We've past over the river of Old Things, and now we must trudge through the snow and clear weather of the future. Where will we end up, I wonder?

Yesterday we heard the sad news of a just-married young friend finding his 22-year-old wife slumped in a corner of the bathroom. A blood clot instantly killed this new bride, and it reminded me again of life's uncertainties.

Time's too short to squander on what was. Let's make it a goal to let go of it. Forgive, replace unhappy memories with pleasant ones, let failures serve as springboards to accomplishments, and well, let's just get moving for God! "This is the day the Lord has made..."

This was my exact thought & reaction when we found out. My heart breaks for him because it wasn't a lot of time and now there are so many things that he won't be able to do and share with her. It also makes me think how much I love and appreciate my husband. It was just so sudden and tragic.
