…For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Hebrews 13:5 NKJV
Well, Tommy, it’s another Christmas without you. I miss you so much. I’m doing okay but feel so alone. No one understands or cares. The drunk driver who ended your life will be out of prison soon, free to live his life. That really hurts. How can I forgive him? He took too much away from me….from us. She looked up at the darkening sky. It’s beginning to snow so I better get home. I love you.
The walk from the cemetery seemed longer than usual. It was dark by the time she arrived home. She checked her mail. No Christmas cards. Tossing aside the after-Christmas ads, she saw an envelope addressed “Julia” in gold script. She sat in his chair by the fire and read:
Oh, My Child, how I love you. I feel your anger and grief. Please forgive the young man who has caused you such pain. He, too, is lonely and needs Me. Be assured that you are never alone. Have courage! I will never leave you or forsake you.
Loving you, Jesus
Julia bowed her head in prayer.
Dear Jesus, thank you for loving me so. Thank you for caring for those who are alone and reminding us that you are always with us. Help us to have the courage to be alone.
