Angels on Earth; The Best is Yet to Come
Everyday courageous healthcare professionals who could stay at home, not only risk their family’s and their own health, but their very lives. Now, although thousands of patients have lost theirs. They have done so with a healthcare worker by their side, leaving those grieving with the hope that their loved one was not alone. They are literally angels on earth!
Grief is one of society’s most commonly misunderstood and profoundly difficult experiences that cannot be resolved by closure, if there’s even such a thing, but by a slow measure of acceptance that only the passage of time and words of comfort can provide.
As Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth so eloquently said; “Grief is the price we pay for love."
Every minute someone leaves this world behind. We are all in the line; you or I could be next. We never know how many people or who is ahead of us. We cannot move to the back of the line. We cannot step out of the line. We cannot avoid the line.
So while we wait in line - make moments count, make a difference, make the call, make the time, make your gifts known, make everyone feel like someone, make your voice heard, make the small things big, make someone smile, make the change, make up, make peace, make waves, make sure you have no regrets and please stay home!
This can also be a very powerful time for reflection, especially for those who have lost a loved one and even though its God’s promise cannot give those who grieve what they would truly love, inspirational author Richard Lawrence Belford believes the best is yet to come.
Richard therefore trusts his following parable's message of faith and hope provides the peacefulness of a sunset, the promise of a sunrise to all who read it, especially during these anxious, fearful and uncertain times.
In this life, we often leave or are left wishing we had just five more minutes, please take one of them to share this article in the hope that it may also inspire others to believe; “The Best is Yet to Come!”
