Thank you

My wife went home with our Lord a little over a month ago following a brief
battle with cancer. This poem so profoundly describes my love for her and
my hope in seeing her again. Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents.
Praise the Lord Jesus. Blessings :^)

I am in a quasi-relationship with a girl who left me a year ago. I am heart
broken and daily pour my heart out to the Lord Jesus for healing and
support.

Tonight I read Lindsay's poem and found great healing in its reading
especially in the last two lines: Then Christ's wild cry in all the streets
is rife:--"I am the Resurrection and the Life."

What a grand impact it had on my life and thinking. It is only as he raises
this girl, this relationship from the dead that I am able to go on and to
proclam that He is the Resurrection and the Life. I am grateful for God's
timing.
