The Great Hope Of Every Man Who Has Ever Loved A Woman Like That!


I was standing in the garage when I stopped her from leaving. As she sat in the driver’s seat of her car she rolled down her window so she could hear what I was saying. She put her chin on top of the door as she listened. As I looked at her sitting there, chin on top of door, I thought, “She looks like an eight year old.” Her big brown eyes were paying rapt attention to what I was about to say and I thought to myself, “I never thought I could love someone like I do her.” I reached out and put my hand on her cheek, and she instantly smiled at me. I’m terrified to lose her. What will I do? What emptiness my life will be without her by my side. Perhaps I will go before her but then, what of the other side? I’m sure I will miss her when I get there.

Anyone who has ever loved knows the fear of losing your beloved for such love cannot be bought. (Song of Solomon 8:7) For many, this loss has already happened. I know it has for a number of my siblings and I guess that is what scares me. I know vicariously through them, that the day will come when I will join them in the singleness of it all. The anguish and pain of the thought! Would that I could banish such!

My only hope, the only hope of mankind is found in the promise of the resurrection that is made possible through Jesus Christ the Savior of the World. He is the author of all things we hold dear. In His life and death lies the joy of all that most of us have ever wanted. It is our optimism in His resurrection and sacrifice that gives great hope to every man who has ‘ever loved a woman like that!’
