I consider it a most gracious miracle that God was kind to remind me this morning, through an angel named Benjamin, that sometimes you don’t have to explain yourself. Sometimes plain and simple, you got to allow others to display radical generosity in His name. So Benjamin, THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
My featured GUEST BLOGGER this week is: MR BENJAMIN EDWARD, a former US Marine and now recently retired US Army officer. He currently thrives on being a mind, body, spirit enthusiast who actively continues to create a stream of joy and harmony in his life and for his family.
We all need HOPE. No matter what stage in life you are in or what you are going through — hope and positivity and love and belief will lead you to brighter places (And of course you know how I feel about the power of PRAYER and connecting to God)
This is for you. This is Benjamin’s heartwarming story: My mother was dying of colorectal cancer and there was nothing I could do for her. I was with her during her last week on earth. Day and night in the hospice room, I begged her to fight. Her liver was failing her. I begged God to save her. Please God. Please save my mom. I wasn’t angry or resentful. I was hopeful. I loved my mom and I loved God, what else was there. I knew through love miracles happen.
I spoke to her about fun times we had in the past and had classical music playing. It wasn’t until the fourth night going into her fifth day that I knew the worst was coming. Her breathing changed to a panicky gasp. It was probably the longest three hours of my life until my aunt came and begged me to go to her place and shower, nap, come back. I was so exhausted. I left. By the time I arrived her phone was ringing. It was my aunt telling me she had passed. She wouldn’t stop fighting until she knew I was gone.
Many years later when I heard Jesus say in Matthew 22:37, “Love the Lord, your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”, that I heard my mom speaking to me as well. The last week together and the knowing that regardless of anything else, there is a Divine Plan, and God holds us always in His heart.
Sweet friends, I hope you are inspired by Benjamin story today and if you are, leave some love for him in the comments or encourage one another! God bless.💕
Blessings and love…😊🙏❤️
