Your Dying Spouse 693 - Passing The Torch

There are projects I con't complete, now, and the writing is really on the wall.

But I can pass them on, and in that find a measure of satisfaction, and of peace.

No, it won't be my vision. But I'll have made a contribution.

And, surprisingly, that's enough.

At the end of my ability,
and the finish of my dreams,
there's a curious sterility
and life's not what it seems.
I'd thought there's be a tearing,
a grievous sense of loss,
a martyrdom for wearing
while counting up the cost.
But, instead, a sense of peace
gives structure to the days.
I loose my grip, and release
my hopes to brighter ways.
So much of that which I held dear
is in other hands, for whom I cheer.

Music from Andrew Peterson, with You'll Find Your Way.

  1. Andrew, your perspective is refreshing!

    I loved this: "But I can pass them on, and in that find a measure of satisfaction, and of peace.

    No, it won't be my vision. But I'll have made a contribution."

    There are times when we can't finish our projects exactly to our vision. But, how amazing to be able to release them and trust that another will finish the project, and that your contribution will have been enough. this is a paradigm shift, I think.

    I'm praying for you, friend.

    1. Jeanne, I'm so glad you found resonance here...and I am so grateful for your kind and aaffirning words, and especially for your prayers.

    2. I was so delighted to meet PRIEST AZIBA after a long time looking for help in order to fix the ups and downs with my boyfriend. We lived together for two years without any problems until this year when he started seeing another girl, When I tried talking to him, he decided to leave me for her which made me so heart broken after all we have been through together, he even stopped picking up my calls and also blocked me from calling him. I love him dearly and couldn't accept losing him that's why I decided to seek help from PRIEST AZIBA through his number +2348100368288, he helped me quickly in one day and as I speak my boyfriend is back to me with lots of love and respect like never before. Am expecting more good things to happen in our relationship.
