As I go about my busy day, there is a lady planning her husband's funeral. As I drive to various appointments, there are people walking in and out of her home with meals, with love, with tears. While I'm wondering what we're going to have for dinner, a lady wonders what's she's going to do. As I fall asleep beside my husband this night, there is a lady who will get very little sleep between her tears.
Who am I speaking of? Mrs. Gomar. She, her husband and three children attend Antioch Bible Baptist Church. Her husband was killed suddenly as a result of a car accident late Friday night. His 3oth birthday would have been today.
Mrs. Gomar is left alone, with her three small children, without her best friend and husband. As my children complain today of being bored, there are three children trying to comprehend why their daddy does not come home.
Mrs. Gomar bought a Bible last week to give to her husband - most likely for his birthday. Instead of presenting him the Bible, she receives sprays of flowers. Instead of a little party with children singing "Happy Birthday," this family grieves. Instead of growing old together, Mrs. Gomar will walk away from her husband's grave tomorrow, without her husband's hand to hold during the most difficult time in her life. She will now lean on the arm of God.
What are my complaints this day?
Pray for Mrs. Gomar, her children, and the family at Antioch Bible Baptist Church.
