Well, another sleepless night chronicle. Hopefully, the continuation of this spontaneous series will be short-lived. :)
One year ago tomorrow, I lost my dearest friend in this life. I thought I’d be fine tonight, yet it hit me harder than I thought it would.
Thus, this is why my lantern burns at this hour and my quill is dipping into ink and scratching across parchment.

Well, it is 2:30am again tonight.
After considering last night’s article, it seemed fitting and necessary for there to be a follow-up post.
Yes, it is true the darkness I have been facing in my life is great. Yet, there is another side of the coin that must be shown. For you see, the darkness CANNOT stop the light!
I recently studied Acts 12 for a Bible study and was struck by the two extremes for Peter and James in deliverance from their current trial. Both were delivered, but with different outcomes.
James was taken from this life and brought into the presence of His Savior. For a believer, this is a day for which we all yearn. We ache for the Lord to take us home, for we long to be in His presence. To see our Savior face to face and to spend eternity in the light of His presence.
For Peter, he was delivered from his trial by a miraculous escape from prison, as God sent an angel to do the impossible. One doesn’t escape by chance or human power from the depths of a prison, chained between two guards, with a total of sixteen soldiers guarding you.
When I embarked on writing this blog series, I didn’t realize how much the Lord was going to challenge me regarding the importance of marriage.
Nor did I fully realize how God was going to challenge me regarding the sacredness of marriage.
And finally, I did not realize how much of a deeper appreciation I would have of God’s love for me.
