This Lesson Keeps Coming Home.

 

 

Today has taught me yet another lesson, and just to make sure I had heard.. It knocked twice..

On Tuesday evening I received a telephone call from an old friend, whom I do not see that often, to inform me that a mutual friends husband had passed away peacefully in his sleep at the weekend, and his funeral would be on Thursday morning today, and would I be going?

Last evening the husband of a lady whom I give healing to on a regular basis rang to say his wife had been taken to hospital poorly.  I told him I would visit this afternoon, as this lady has also become over the last couple of years a dear friend.

Today is my day off work and I had planned to relax, catch up with some housework, and probably get around to posting pictures of friends spaces.. But instead, I went along to support an old friend, as she said farewell to her husband of over 50years marriage. He had a brilliant send off, as he arrived in a beautiful Carriage, a horse drawn Hurst, and his family and friends celebrated his life, The vicar described a wonderful man, and how after going to his local Pubfor what was to be his Last Pint, he retired to bed to slip into the next world. Tears stung my eyes with a smile on my lips, as the vicar said he had always wished this to be his final moments on the Earth, after having a Good pint of beer.. And they played him out to Meatloaf’s  ‘Heaven Can Wait’.and I thought of my own Husband and how lucky I was.

This afternoon as I visited my friend in hospital on the Cardiac Ward, the Doctors had to get on with their job and continue to treat my friend, this procedure took nearly an hour, and so I walked to fetch some magazines for her, and then waited in the Day Room, where I noticed a  book.. It was the Wards Comment Book.. In it was hand written messages from loved ones, and patients, All praising the staff, for their dedication, Humour, tireless work, and so I read… And the Tears flowed unashamedly once again. As I read several comments, one was written in a Childs scribbly hand, and said something on the lines as this,

 ‘Thank you to all the Doctors and Nurses for making my Dad better, he means the world to me and mummy, Thank you for saving his life, He’s the BEST DAD IN THE WORLD’.

 

Another said, ‘ The biggest question is Why are we here?, The Universe, the world, the plan.. My answer is I’m 43 and I’m still here, I will not ask WHY.. I just am…. ask the consultants… THANK YOU.

THE LESSON!… never take Life for granted, was once again driven home, as I thought back to my own Hubby’s recent hospital visit, and thought, There for the Grace of God, go I..  And I thank God  every day,

Live Life each day as it would be your last, Love, and Enjoy Life’s richness, Grasp it, Hold it.. For you never know when it may slip away.

 

Lyrics of Heaven Can Wait by Meatloaf.

Heaven can wait
And a band of angels wrapped up in my heart
Will take me throu-ough the lonely night
Through the cold of the day
And I know-ow, I know
Heaven can wait
And all the gods come down here just to sing for me
And the melody-y’s gonna make me fly
Without pain, without fear

Give me all of your drea-eams a-and
Let me go-o along on your way
Give me all of your prayers to sing and I’ll
Turn the ni-ight into the skylight of day
I’ve got a taste of paradise
I’m never gonna let it slip away
I got a taste of paradise
It’s all that I really need to make me stay
Just like a chi-ild again

Heaven can wait
And all I got is time unti-il the end of time
Well I won’t look back, I won’t look back
Let the a-altar-ar shine

And I know that I’ve been released
But I don’t know to where
Nobody’s gonna tell me now
And I don’t really care, no no no
I got a taste of paradise
That’s all I really need to make me stay
I gotta taste of paradise
If I had it any sooner, you know
You know I never would have run away
From my home

Heaven can wait
And all I got is time unti-il the end of time
Well I won’t look back, I won’t look back
Let the a-altar-ar shine

Heaven can wait, ahh…, heaven can wait
Well I won’t look back, I won’t look back
Let the a-altar-ar shine…
Let – the – al-tar shine…
