As we grow older, we can’t deny we don’t have any fear. We may try to hide it, but deep within we are consumed with fear, most especially with fear of loosing a loved one.
Although we try to courageously let go the fear, but still conscious of that thought, knowing that someday it will definitely be their time or ours to leave planet earth, and then we will be finally free from all the stress, struggles, worries, pains, and sorrows this present life brings and or holds.
We will finally go find eternal rest and peace in the Bossom of our LORD and to spend eternity with our LORD and Saviour. It could be easy to say those words to those going through the hurt of loosing a loved one, but in a way we know deep down in our heart, the tears will still flow because we aren’t the ones going through the hurt on a personal level as they’ll still feel the pain of loosing someone dear to their heart.
Most of the time, we act like we don’t even notice our parents growing old as the day go by, especially when we are still struggling to get a life, but truth is they are in our heart, we can’t help but try to focus on what is more important at the moment and try our best to be happy. We try harder to make it just so we can have the privilege to see them reap the fruit of their labour, and watch them smile. We try harder to make them proud, we try harder so they can be part of our success stories, so they can celebrate our successes and achievements with us before they leave planet earth.
But then again, sometimes, life decide to go the other way around leaving us with scares that might never heal and with pains that might never go away for life. It is tough to watch a loved one die without being able to help, and more heartbreaking not seeing them for the last time, hearing their voice for the last time and or to kiss them goodbye.
That kind of pain is really deep!
While we still have the privilege of having our parents with us, let’s not forget to be there for them and be the reason for their smiles. We shouldn’t forget them after we must have made all the wealth. They should be the first to enjoy the fruit of our labour as they were there for us when we had no strength and had nothing, we should be there for them too as they become older without strength.
For those of us still trying to get balance in life, we might not have silver nor gold to give our parents at the moment, but our care for them alone will go a long way on a daily basis.
Let’s not also forget that there is a GOD, the CREATOR of the whole universe and we will all come face to face with HIM, standing before HIM someday. And so at this point, we ask for Grace to live right and do right at all times, cause nobody knows the time and or hour he or she will leave this present life to forever land… “After death comes judgement.” We are not sure what the other side holds for us, but so it written and said.
This is a post from 2019, when a friend of mine lost his father, barely a year he lost his mother.
This is also to a friend who just lost his mother few weeks ago.
