I've been following country music duo, Joey and Rory Feek, for quite some time, and today, Rory posted that Joey's time her on earth was almost at an end. She gave her daughter one last kiss and has slipped into what is being termed "her final sleep". That breaks my heart. Here is a Godly woman who has dedicated her life to her family and God, and her life is winding down at forty years of age. That's not a lot of time to live, but she's made the most out of it. Rory has chronicled his life with his wife and two-year-old daughter, Indy, on his blog: This Life I Live.
Joey kissed the daughter she loves so much, said goodbye to all her family and friends, and is now waiting for God to take her home. I pray for peace for her and her family, for grace in the coming days, and for memories to replace the pain.
And I wonder how much better we would all be if we focused on journeys such as these rather than the negativity that surrounds us every day. How are we making the most out of our lives?
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
