Excerpt

I spread a green blanket over my husband’s grave and plopped down on it. Opening my small Bible, I began to read it aloud. I had come to hear from the Lord, to reassure myself of His promises. Christmas, just three days away, would mark my 54th wedding anniversary. This year I was planning no celebration. My husband had gone to heaven a few weeks earlier, and today I made the forty-minute drive to deliver a red poinsettia to his grave. The breeze from the Gulf of Mexico, just a block away, almost drowned out my voice as I began to quote Psalm 23, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” Then personalizing Psalm 121, I yelled into the wind, “The Lord is my Keeper. The Lord will protect me from all evil; He will keep my soul; He will guard my going out and my coming in forever.” For the next thirty minutes, I shouted various Scriptures—letting God’s precious Word minister to my heart as tears spilled onto my blanket. The Lord seemed to whisper to me, “What do you see?” Looking around, I observed acres of gravesites and realized I was alone in the cemetery. Before I could respond to His question, His voice came again. “Yes, everyone here in this place is dead. You are the only one alive. So get up and act alive!” His direction startled me. “Get up and act alive.” Yes, that’s what I had come to hear. My watershed moment, my turning-around point, had come to me in a cemetery. I would go home and celebrate my anniversary with some of my children and grandchildren on Christmas Day. The Lord is indeed my keeper! His keeping power will sustain me. I will act alive. I am alive.
