I've been pondering what my own response would be, and it is along your lines, as well: Live close to Jesus! Fill your life with His word. I'll be cheering you on to your own finish line from the presence of the Lord. Follow wherever He leads and trust His love for you. Know that you are the love of my earthly life and that love will be carried into eternity, where we shall be the bride of Christ! I am so thankful that God gave you to me in this life. I could never have asked for a better husband. I cannot thank God enough that our names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life and that we will spend forever worshiping Him!!

That's such a thought-provoking question, Missy. I'm glad he and I are both Christians, so we'll see each other in Heaven, although we won't be married any more (but that's another subject). These 43+ years have seen times of growing, as individuals and in Christ - the latter being the most important. I'm glad to see such growth in him, as he has taken a greater interest in things of the Lord. I suppose I'd tell him that, and on a lighter note, "see you soon".

What would you say to a spouse if you knew you were returning to glory, Sandra?

All You Really Need


The eternal God is a dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms.
Deuteronomy 33:27

I want you to think for a moment of what you'd say to your spouse if you knew you were going to die. What words of comfort would you bring? Where would you point him or her for hope? What counsel would you give that would most certainly be true and not disappoint?

Think. What would you say? How would you pray?

Over 300 years ago, Obadiah Holmes must have grappled with questions like those. Evidently, Obadiah Holmes built his house upon the rock of Jesus Christ. And in a love letter he wrote to his wife before he died, it was only natural to gently remind her to trust Him:

When I am removed, consider the Lord as your husband, as your father, as your Lord and Savior, who has said that whom He loves, He loves to the end. And He will not leave you nor forsake you, but will carry you through all until He brings you to glory. Therefore, lift up your head and be not discouraged. Say to your soul, "Why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God and trust in His name," and you shall not be disappointed.

And now, my dear wife, whom I love as my own soul, I commit you to the Lord, who has been a gracious, merciful God to us all our days, not once doubting that He will be gracious to you in life--or death. He will carry you through the valley of tears with His own supporting hand. To Him I commit you for counsel, wisdom, and strength, and to keep you blameless till the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, to whom be all glory, honor, and praise.

What would you say to your spouse if you knew your time was up?
