There’s a picture hanging above the sofa taken a year ago May for our Church Directory. My hubby’s chair used to sit where the sofa is now. Each time I walk up the stairs I’m greeted, not with him smiling from his chair, but from the picture on the wall. I take a moment to tell him I love him and sometimes when tears burn, I see his smile a little wider and the love reflected from his eyes.
Yesterday a song came on the radio that reminded me of him…a song we danced to long ago. “Could I Have this Dance” sung by Anne Murray. I looked at our picture and sang along with the words. I could almost feel his arms holding me as we spun across the dance floor…almost. I saw him smile, saw the love shining in his eyes.
Every day I get hugs from Heaven.
Thank you God for all the years you gave us. Thank you for the memories. Thank you for the hugs from Heaven. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
