One Whole Year

Today is one year since my arms have been empty. I'm missing my oldest treasure.

He is gone, but not forever. God continues to work in his life, and our lives, teaching us so much about dependency on Him.

I am meditating on this today to keep my mind stayed on my Master:

Psalm 119:25-32

My soul cleaves to the dust;
Revive me according to Your word.
I have told of my ways, and You have answered me;
Teach me Your statutes.
Make me understand the way of Your precepts,
So I will meditate on Your wonders.
My soul weeps because of grief;
Strengthen me according to Your word.
Remove the false way from me,
And graciously grant me Your law.
I have chosen the faithful way;
I have placed Your ordinances before me.
I cling to Your testimonies;
O LORD, do not put me to shame!
I shall run the way of Your commandments,
For You will enlarge my heart.


Please continue to pray for "Hoss" as he sails through this year date. We want his heart to belong to Christ, completely surrendered. We need wisdom for making the decision of bringing him home. We need clear direction. Thank you for standing with the Puebla Ponderosa as we long for the day of reconciliation.

My heart bleeds for you during this time. If I could bear some of your pain, I would.

Praying that God will give you and your husband divine direction in the timing on bringing him home. God will order your steps if you stay dependent upon him.

And I feel like that is your heart from all you write and share. You will do the right thing.

Love you,
Dianne

Thinking of you all and praying for you, and for discernment and God's wisdom to guide you. What a perfect passage you have chosen to meditate upon. It must be so painful, but also, gratifying to know that you all have made it to the one year point. Choosing the faithful path... It is painful sometimes. God be with you.

What a beautiful post... I'll be praying for Hoss.... I am believing that he is going to do all you are asking God for in his life.
