Linda writes well and sometimes very deeply. About ten hours ago she related a personal story that compared with a gut-wrenching account of a young singer who performed at our church hall on Saturday. His was consumed with water, hers light. Entitled "Letting go of your life."
You will want to read it for yourself, check to the right of this blog page. In both cases it seems that people who relate these accounts have suffered some type of tragedy in their life in order to reach such a close relationship with their maker. A common denominator seems to be their fear to draw closer.
We are all afraid to draw close to the one we love. I've come to realize that with love comes responsibility to do something for that person. Is that the scary part or is it that we fear rejection? We are never good enough. Sadly, because of this, some will go to their grave never knowing the love that could have been theirs.
Fear is not is God's vocabulary. Just do it, let go.
