Your Dying Spouse 461 - Better Days Ahead

Being unable to go to church any longer, I hear a lot of TV preachers...I almost exclusively watch Trinity Broadcasting (TBN) these days.

And a lot of them repeat the message that no matter what your situation, your best days are ahead.

As I write this, under the weight of pain I can only describe as evilly, unbelievably harsh, I agree...


...if I choose to make it so.

God isn't a genie...rub the magic lamp, say the right words, and your problems are solved. Not.

Our God died with blood-flecked foam on His Lips, His lacerated Back torn by the rough wood of the Cross.

By choice.

That wasn't one of His better days, except that it was, because it was the door that led to the Resurrection.

And His Resurrection saved us all.

A good day indeed.

As there's a pretty fair chance I won't be able to use this song next Christmas, I'll give you the Goo Goo Dolls and their lovely (and aptly named) Christmas song, Better Days.

Please pardon my slow response to comments. I do my best, and your comments are really precious to me.

I'm grateful for the energy to have written this. I'm so glad Barbara's stepped in. I'm really not doing well at all.

Thanks to Carol Ashby, Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart is back on Kindle, and will be available in paperback in a few days!

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.

Marley update... been moved to a sanctuary, and Bay County will revise their 'dangerous dog' codes.


And marley has a Facebook page! Please drop by to see how happy he is today.

If you can, please do leave a comment. I am trying to answer all, and I am failing, but please know this - I read and treasure each one.

Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.


  1. My friend so few words, but such good ones. Our best day was Christ's worst day. Resurrection and redemption. What a glorious day! Love, hugs and prayers always.
