Sneaker Waves of Sadness

Updated: Jan 26

Good morning friends. It is Thursday, April 15, 2021.


Yesterday was rough; today is a bit better...but still the tears are flowing too freely. It just hit me out of nowhere. Like a wave of sadness...like a sneaker wave. I miss my mate.


Wendell was the best helpmate in the world. If I needed something built, he did it. If needed something bought, he headed to the store. If I needed holes dug, he was the one digging. If I needed fill dirt, or bark, he was warming up his truck. He did so much for me and he did it with a cheerful heart, well maybe a bit of grumbling, but he never made me feel like I was a pain. Wendell did all the grocery shopping. He did all the laundry. He came behind me in the kitchen and cleaned as I cooked. He listened to my rants and he supported my ideas. Life was not always perfect, but he was perfect for me...and I miss him terribly today.


I left work early yesterday. I went straight home and crawled in bed. I took a 2 hour nap and it helped some. I have so much to be thankful for; truly I do and I AM...but these past 24 hours have been really hard. I feel like I should be researching scripture and trying to bless your day but instead I am going to leave you with these lyrics and this video I found this morning. I bawled like a baby watching it. God is so good and so faithful, we need only lean on Him.

"Great is thy faithfulness, O God my father

There is no shadow of turning with thee

Thou changest not, thy compassions they fail not

As thou hast been thou forever wilt be

And great is thy faithfulness

Great is thy faithfulness

Morning by morning new mercies I see

All I have needed thy hand hath provided

Great is thy faithfulness

Lord unto me

Summer and winter, springtime and harvest

Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above

Join with all nature in manifold witness

To thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love

And great is thy faithfulness

Great is thy faithfulness

Morning by morning new mercies I see

All I have needed thy hand hath provided

Great is thy faithfulness

Lord unto me

Pardon for sin and peace that endureth

Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide

Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow

Blessings all mine with ten thousand beside

And great is thy faithfulness

Great is thy faithfulness

Morning by morning new mercies I see

All I have needed thy hand hath provided

Great is thy faithfulness

Lord unto me"


Keep looking up. Jesus is coming soon!
