The Way I have a bad sense of direction, and needless for me to say I can often be found getting all turned around, and easily losing my way. I know north from south and east from west and what latitude and longitude are, but I must confess that GPS, to even find where I parked my car. Where on earth did I get this sense of misdirection? Have I been this way since birth, some sort of genetic imperfection? My mon said “Don that notion is really not a reach, because after all you known son — you did enter this world breech.” So it’s safe to say that i was born this way, and this propensity I have for getting lost is in my DNA. I can’t fake it or shake it, so I take it in stride, and whenever I’m lost, I just swallow my pride, and I ask for directions from others who know, and they set me straight and tell me which way to go. And along the way I can clearly see, how God uses my weakness as a reminder to me. That all of us, like sheep, have gone astray, and we ALL were born with a sinful nature, right in our DNA. We can’t fake it or shake it, or wish it away, and without a Redeemer — it would be there to stay But God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, to seek and to save us from being lost — there is no other one. No other one but Jesus, He said “I am the Way”. From Heaven to Earth and to the cross, His blood my debts to pay. No other one could die and rise and roll the stone away. Proving there was divinity — right in His DNA No other one but Jesus, could then go prepare a place, in Heaven for those who have believed in Him, and received salvation by His grace. His AMAZING grace, how sweet the sound. This sinner once was lost — but now he’s found. D. Edward Aldridge 2008

May you all be comforted in knowing she is so free to live again, with no sorrow, no pain, no tears, no bondages of any kind this earth holds us down with, but the greatest revelation that you will be united once again, and be together for all of time and eternity! What blessed hope we as Christians have the greatest treasure of knowing and seeing it coming to pass! Praying for your faith to comfort you!
