No matter how he hard he tried he could never take the place of Jim. She had loved him so much. So many memories suppressed now by childish fears and the forced love of this new relationship that was great, but was a mere shadow of what love truly was in her eyes. They used to sit for hours and bask in each others' eyes and revel in the glory that God could make such a beautiful creation. Now the only thing that fills her eyes are the tears that fall, but these are hidden tears, tears her new love will never come to discover. She can't seem to tell herself that he is gone. His value, his presence still lingers with her. Their marriage was something only God could have put together, and something only God could tear apart. At least she felt that way, that he was stripped away from her in a freak car accident that shouldn't have happened. But, the drunk driver wasn't paying attention as he veered into on-coming traffic and smashed directly into Jim's old rusted-green Ford truck that he had loved to take to work over her new BMW, he was funny that way. He was funny. They were sitting down one night, while the fire was burning they sat there and talked and laughed and cried and loved so deep, that only God could separate them, and He did. He really did. Just like Enoch, God wanted Jim, and wanted his company as much as she did. There was only one like him, and she accepts her relationship now, but she knows the reality of this relationship, that it will only be shadow of one of the most beautiful experiences she has ever had.
But, she lives on and holds on trying to never let go.

THEME: The first love, the agape kind of love is hard to let go, hard to forget, there is no love like it. It is as if there is a stain of some kind that will not allow your memory to forget the effect of that kind of love, the true power of God-love. Also, there is nothing that can match the love of God, he put His son in our place. God is the true original and we are to be His copies, reminders of His love. His love will never have a match. We need to be the original in our love to one another and allow His love to permeate through us.
