Happy New Year - First New Year after Loss of Spouse (Death)
12-23-2013

I wanted to take a moment to send you a note to let you know I'm thinking of you as you look forward into the new year ahead. I realize this would be a time for the sharing of new plans, goals and dreams about the future with your (HUSBAND/WIFE), but this is the first year in some time you face the future without them. Death is always a stark reminder that one day we are all going to face the end of our lives, however, it seems there is really never a "proper" time, especially for those we love so much.

That name "Immanuel" simply means "God with us". While I know there is nothing that will replace the physical presence of our loved one, I do know that we have a wonderful God who is with us by the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus shared a bit about Who the Holy Spirit would be to us in this day we live in John 16:7 (KJV) 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

Without a doubt, this can often be one of the most difficult things we experience in life as we say Goodbye to a special person we have loved for all of our lives. Well, perhaps the use of the word "Goodbye" is not the correct way to say it! It's really more like "see you later"!
