Divorce, what a hard path, especially when that dream of being married 50 years and retiring together still nagged in her heart. Papers showing proof that this marriage she had prayed for so long was over.
But God said "NO!". One very dark and lonely night Jesus softened her heart and put what all the world thought was shattered back together. God did his work in her husband as well and now their goals and desires of life were the same. Their tears of joy and happiness filled every part of their life. For the first time they were serving God together. They were truly the partners God had created them to be.
God always teaches us not to second guess him, but to believe his way is best and praise him in all things. Imagine the strength it would take when three weeks after they remarried her husband was diagnosed with a terminal cancer. Imagine how hard she cried when she realized that the marriage she had always prayed for would not last all the years she had planned. God is mighty to hold us and comfort us in these horrible times and he did for this couple. God ministered to her husband and touched him in ways she could not fathom. She watched as her husband who had been such a reserved man raised his hands and prayed while he lay in their bed battling the pain and agony of this unmerciful disease. Yet God was merciful, and even though it seemed that all was lost peace covered each of them. They talked and spoke of their love for each other and how they wished they had more time together. In the end you see there is no loser. God has made provision for his children. This earthly body may die but our soul will live forever. It has been hard to carry on since he has been gone. Though his passing was so bitter knowing where his journey has taken him has made her days sweeter and her memories more peacful. For one day soon they will worship God together again.
