When a body gets sick, or looses a part, it persists. A cough, limp, an amputation, or a cooked smile can give its secret away. Some are gone early in life, some live to a ripe old age. The question of longevity has many variables. Only The Lord knows how many days a person has on this earth. The choices a person makes in their lifetime can shorten/lengthen their days. The soul is the forever part of our being. Even when the body is deathly sick, the spirit/soul can be strong and powerful. What we feed our spirit/soul helps or hinders its strength. I watch Mother and I’m always impressed with her spiritual strength. She loves her God/her Maker. She can be an encouragement to those around her. Her sadness and pondering perplexes her. When the Alzheimer’s is strong and she forgets her life, she never forgets her Savior. This time of the year is sad for many. Reminders of lost loved ones and reminiscing of yesterdays gone by brings nostalgia. Mother inspires me to be joyful in my soul/ my heart…today.
