Repost: Living Between the Crucifixion and the Resurrection

A close  family member is facing a difficult, scary and extensive surgery.

It’s one more reminder that we live in a broken world.  

The victory Christ gained is real.  But we do not yet have the full benefit of all its fruit.

We still face death.

We still bear pain.  

We still long for that day when ALL will be made right. 

Until then, we Live Between the Crucifixion and the Resurrection.

  1. Miss Melanie,
    A friend of me of mine told me about your
    Blog. I want to tell you it has been very comforting to read. November will be a year that I lost my eldest son. I miss him so much. Even though I know he is with our Heavenly Father everyday it is a challenge for me not to breakdown and cry. I just want to thank you for your beautiful words that you write.

    1. I am so very sorry for your pain and loss. I’m thankful that the blog has been helpful-it IS hard to miss our sons. And knowing they are safely Home gives hope to our hearts but doesn’t take the pain away. I pray that the Lord strengthens you for each day and that He gives you an extra measure of grace and mercy as you move toward your son’s heaven day in November.
