SEPARATION & BEGINNING AGAIN

I SIT ALONE AGAIN TONITE AS I HOLD ONE OF SIX PUPS BORN THE DAY MY BEST FRIEND DIED. THEY ARE FOUR WEEKS OLD NOW AND JUST BEGINNING TO WALK. LIFE ENDS HERE AND BEGINS HERE, HOW DO WE BEGIN AGAIN? HOW DOES THE FATHER APPROACH THE REMAKING OF CREATION AGAIN, KNOWING IT CAN POSSIBLY END IN HEARTACHE AND LONELINESS? DOES HE TAKE A CHANCE BECAUSE HE ALSO HAS NOT FOUND ONE LIKE HIMSELF WHO LOVES, WHO BESTOWS EQUALITY TO SOMETHING THAT COULD NEVER BE EQUAL TO HIM OTHERWISE?
BUT WHY BEGIN AGAIN? HOW MANY OF US HAVE FACED THIS SAME DILEMMA AFTER THE LOSS OF SOMEONE OR SOMETHING SO IMPORTANT IN OUR LIVES THAT THE ENERGY REQUIRED FOR SUCH AN ENDEAVOR ESCAPES US?
I BELIEVE THAT IS ONE OF THE REASONS, GOD CREATED A UNIQUE PLACE AND TIME FOR THE MOST WONDEROUS IN ALL HIS CREATIONS. HE HAD CREATED BEFORE BUT WAS STILL ALONE IN HIS CREATION AND HE, THEREFORE, UNDERSTOOD THE LONELINESS ADAM FELT WHEN ALL OF CREATION WAS BROUGHT BEFORE HIM AND EACH GIVEN A NAME, BUT NO ONE WAS FOUND, LIKE HIM?
THERE IS NO ONE LIKE ME. HAVE WE NOT ALL SAID THAT AT SOME TIME IN OUR LIVES, EITHER BECAUSE OF REJECTION, LONELINESS OR HOPING THAT SOMEONE COULD HEAR OUR INNERMOST THOUGHTS AND ANSWER THE UNSPOKEN DESIRE TO BE UNDERSTOOD?
HE ALLOWS HIMSELF TO BE SEPARATE FROM HIS CREATION BUT A PART OF IT ALSO. THIS GOD KNEW THERE WAS NO GOD LIKE HIM. THIS CREATOR EMBODIED LOVE AND EXPRESSED IT IN BOTH THE WRITTEN AND THE SPOKEN, BUT ENDEAVORED ONE STEP GREATER IN CREATING ONE WHO EMBODIED HIS TESTIMONY OF LOVE AND LAID DOWN HIS LIFE, HIS DEITY TO GIVE THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT OF LOVE….LIFE. THIS ONE WOULD GIVE US, HIS BELOVED, A VOICE, A RIGHT TO CHOOSE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH.
i WAS FORTUNATE TO MEET AND LOVE ONE WHO WAS A VOICE THAT CRIED IN THIS WILDERNESS AND INTO THE DESERTS OF MY LIFE AND ENABLED ME TO WALK IN THAT LOVE. HE HAS RETURNED TO THE CREATOR OF LOVE BUT HIS VOICE STILL SINGS THROUGH ME. THE LOVE AND LIFE HE GAVE ME WILL BEAR FRUIT BECAUSE IT WAS GIVEN FREELY AND WHOLEHEARTEDLY AND SO I BELIEVE HE WAS CREATED TO ALLOW ME TO OBTAIN THE FULLNESS OF LIFE THAT WITHOUT HIM WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPOSSIBLE.
MAY I TOUCH THE LIVES OF OTHERS IN LOVE AS HE DID AND FIND SOME JOY IN LIVING THE REMAINDER OF MY LIFE HERE WITH HIS WORDS IN MY HEART AND HIS LOVE FOR ME ENCOURAGING ME TO FINISH THE RACE WE BEGAN TOGETHER.
