    I remember so fondly my special seamstress Mrs. Mullins as I was growing up, she discovered one leg was shorter than the other so she had to hem two lengths. Therefore, she and Mother Ima Jean decided she could just make them from scratch. Grieve-as-you must; not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent.
    ORPHANED
    Read John 14:15 – 21
    Jesus said, “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before-long, the world will not see me anymore but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that-day you will realize I am in my-Father, I am in you and you are in me. John 14:18 – 20 New-International version
    Even-though I was an adult when my parents died, I felt a keen-sense of what it was like to be an orphan. Gone were the two-people who had nurtured
    me and shaped my life. Sharp-grief gave way to bewilderment, “Who am I now; who knows me deeply yet loves me anyway? The gospel of John recounts Jesus telling His-disciples although the time is coming they would see Him no-more but He would always be a part of them just-as they would forever be a part of Him.
    So it has been with my parents. I see now even-after their-deaths, their example of loving-kindness continues to teach me and guide my-life. That goes deeper than just warm-memories. My parents are in me at a deep-level, deeper than the mind can comprehend and as-deep as the heart. Surely God was their-heart’s teacher.
    In the same-way I come to know God through the life and love of Jesus. Nurturing that-relationship through prayer, study, giving and
    serving keeps me forever-connected to the living-God.
    Gracious-God, let who we are reflect who You are in all we do. Amen
    Because of God’s great-love for us, we are never-orphaned.
