My son AJ’s love left an indelible imprint in my memories. I find comfort in knowing that my life has been enriched by having shared his love. But Can Love Conquer All? I am still hurting so very much, But I loved AJ so Much that Love MUST conquer all. And I think in time it will. Love can overcome adversity, and like Love, adversity requires you to act.
It’s easy to be positive and nice when everything is going beautifully in our lives,
But when life’s course makes that sudden change, it temporarily overpowers us
and that is when our real strength is called upon.
We cannot ask “why”, but “what now”! Why produces conflict, whereas “what now” suggests action. As the Famous saying goes, “It’s not what happens to us but how we react to what happens to us that makes all the difference”.
“It Is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye”.
How can I say I all this? I, Like AJ, am very faithful. And the things I say about my son for years I said about God; oh how I love You. Where there’s no faith there’s no love, and Faith is different from proof; proof is human, and Faith is from God.
I will still cry and I will still miss AJ but God knows how much I’m trying to overcome this adversity. He took what is mine in order that He might impart to me what is His. He took it not to overturn it but to fill it.
And the signs keep coming. The latest:
I recently read a book about the old testament, and the dedication page said this:
“God meant it for good” (Gen. 50:20)
2 Corinthians 5:6-8 So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.
