Scripture Reading: Hebrews 12:5-11 “And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? ‘My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by Him. For the Lord disciplines the one He loves, and chastises every son whom He receives.’ It is for discipline that you have […]

  1. Beautiful. Thank you for that Beverly for more reasons than you know. But it was timely and needed.

    How are you my friend?
    I miss your sparkle.
    I miss that you which only you can do.
    I worry, and I care.
    But I know that you need to be given space for your heart to continue beating.
    Space for your thoughts to be thunk, so that you can come through the darkness and the fog, until you reach the light and the warmth again.

    I send you my love dearest friend. Lots of it. ~ Cobs. x

    • Cob……Shelton Sanford is a dear friend . He and his wife( now gone too ) were our special friends and pastor years ago in Canton, Ms. while our boys were young. She left several years ago from a fast growing cancer He has remarried but we (oops ..I.) haven’t meet the new Mrs. They live in Greenville. SC.a long way from here. He is a retired senior pastor and a real true blue man of God.
      I am muddling through this situation I find myself in. Every now an then a wave just comes over me and my throat closes up and the reality of “This is it” just rushes over me. Not for long but it sure is real.
      I think I have finally finished the Thank you notes and need to think about a news letter for my Christmas customers.Just haven’t been too creative lately. I’ll get there.
      Love to the Cobs

      • Shelton is a wonderful man indeed. I very much ‘felt’ his post and the words therein. He obviously has a way with delivering his words so that they touch the parts that needed to hear him. I can understand why you were friends.

        I can understand the wave you talk of. I (obviously, and thankfully) haven’t experienced it through the loss of Mr.C, but I very much connect with your words from when my mother was called home.

        I went into what seemed like a walking coma. Nothing was getting through to me and great hunks of time are missing from my memories of the days following. I didn’t seem able to hold a conversation; couldn’t seem to come out of my own head. The pain wasn’t just an ache, it was a whole body pain and inside my head I was screaming. But very little came out of my mouth.

        I think you are amazing. You are such an inspiration to me and I’m so full to over-flowing with admiration of you. You truly are a wonderful human being, and I am so blessed to know you and for us to be ‘friends’.

        On a more happy note …I’m hoping that your package arrives within the next few days now. I’m so mad with myself that I couldn’t get to the post office on the Friday because (normally) when I’ve ever posted anything to the USA on a Friday, it’s almost always came by the following Thursday or Friday. But … ah well. Fingers crossed that it arrives with you by Wednesday.
        Sending you my love and praying for you my friend ~ Cobs
