“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.” 3 John 2
This verse makes both my heart smile, and a soft tear to roll down my cheek.
This is exactly something that Rick would pray over me ... that he HAS prayed over me.
I cannot tell you how many times that man has taken me into his arms, held me firm, with my head on his chest, and his chin resting on the top of my head ...
Even now I can hear his prayers over me, over whatever burden was weighing on my heart,
I can feel his breath upon my hair,
And on several occasions, feel his tears soaking thru to my scalp.
He had no shame, no hesitance, in praying with me, in praying over me.
He was very in-tune to my spirit, to my heart.
He knew when someone, or some situation, was bearing down on me.
And he would pray.
Even on the worst days, he would pray.
It’s been a little over 6 years since I heard his voice praying ...
And I don’t think I realized until this verse just how much I have missed him praying over me.
Over our lives together.
I know that others have, do, and will continue to pray for me.
But to be held.
To hear my name being called out to the God of Heaven and earth!
There’s just something about that.
And I miss it.
Lord, You alone know how much I miss this.
And You know that I pray for myself.
Yes, it took me a long while after Rick died for me to pray over myself.
But I do now.
You also know all that lies within me still, unspoken.
But not unheard.
Teach me to pray O Lord.
In Jesus’ Name I ask
Thank You God
I love You

God is God over the storms in my life & world -
and I am His.
Trusting in Him. Holding to His Promises as He holds me.
Learning to laugh, to love, & to live ... again - without Rick, but with God
Life goes on ... even when we don't want it to.
Great grief is indicative of a great Love.
Rick, my Sweetheart.
Margaret, his Beloved.
Always & Forever.
