It has come to pass. Fred is now gone from this Earth, and he has left an empty shell. I cannot imagine what that means to one with no faith. My hope is in Christ. If you haven’t read the two prior sprouts on Fred, then check those out please:
As I write this, Fred has only been gone for a little over thirty minutes. And though the passing was mourned for weeks now, and at many times, expected sooner, it does not make this moment less painful or shocking. So in the pain of it all, I choose to couple it with the hope and the glory of a new day. One that will have a dawn so powerful, that it will cut all the darkness of the world.
I look forward to that day when all our united, and the meagerness of this life will be revealed. If you tend to think that those of us who hold onto “religion” are foolish. I beg you to please read “What Dreams May Come” above, and then ponder these questions, while reaching out to me for discussion.
Q: Why are you here?
Q: Could there be a reason for your existence without a creator? Do you really believe there is no reason?
Q: Would hope alone not be worth your true effort to prod and inspect the belief that there is a creator? Hope in a time of darkness… hope over desperation.
I will write more at another time.
For now – Happy Christmas to you. May the peace of God be upon you!
