Jeff had one possession on this earth (besides us of course) that he loved and that was his Bible. You never saw Jeff anywhere without his water bottle and his Bible.
I keep Jeff’s Bible on my bedside table. The other night I got so tickled at myself I could barely stand it, so I thought I would share what happened.
I went to see a movie and by the time I reached my car I was in full blown tears. Anyone that has grieved knows that sometimes our grief just shows up at the most unexpected times. This was one of those times. I drove all the way home sobbing pleading with God to see my hurt and broken heart.
I got home and immediately went to my bedroom. I laid on my bed and picked up Jeff’s Bible and laid it over my face. Okay I know that sounds strange but you see I can still smell Jeff in the pages of his Bible. Its like me being with him. So there I am laying on the bed with his Bible open, over my face tears flowing!!
All of the sudden I start to think about what Jeff would say if he was watching me and I started to laugh hysterically.
I just pictured Jeff looking at me from Heaven and saying,
“ Honey, quit smelling that Bible and read it.”
Oh my goodness I know you can picture it too!!
So I took that Bible off of my face( haha )and began to read God’s promises to me. Page after page, promise after promise…
“Behold I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.” Revelation 22:7
Still in HIS Grip!! Forever and always!!
