The Design Unfolds

Fall apart

I am certain God has a plan.  There is a design unfolding, I’m just not certain what it is.

My husband and I lost a good friend and major player in the business yesterday.  Unexpectedly.  Gone.  Just like that.

I am certain God has a plan.  There is a design unfolding, I’m just not certain what it is.  I don’t question it.  I trust.  God and Love never fail.  Humans…well that’s a totally different story, too long to tell in a blog.

An angel came into our lives 3 years ago, at a time when we were scratching our heads about how the business was going to continue to flourish.  He said yes to everything we asked.  He was a man of true integrity.  He always kept us an arm’s length away from anything personal, and we respected that about him.  He was an honest man, a loving man, a compassionate man.  A man who loved photography.  A man who loved children.  A man who loved God more than life itself.

I am certain God has a plan.  There is a design unfolding.  I’m just not certain what it is.  But I know that this man will be greatly missed on the planet and although his physical presence is no longer with us, I know that his spirit is still around.  He loved playing games.  He loved sarcasm.  He had a totally dry wit.  And as I sit here creating this blog post, I can hear him say, “don’t you have something else better to do…like go outside and enjoy the beautiful weather? I’m fine, really I am. Go. Go.”  Thank you, Jim, for all the love you showered on us, our business, your friends, the world.  Your radiant spirit is present.

I am certain God has a plan.  We are willing participants in its unfolding.  There is a design, I’m just not certain what it is but I know that the Truth is True and All is Well, Unconquerable Life Prevails.

  1. I am filled with emotion as I read your beautiful post Jill. Not having known Jim personally I feel like I know him now. What a blessing he was to your life and I am positive he felt the same about you and Frank. Yes, trusting in the plan is the ultimate test of faith. I too wait it’s unfolding…

    • Thank you, Kath. Frank and I were sitting here sipping coffee this morning and realizing what a truly humongous impact Jim’s passing has on our lives. We did not actually know Jim that well — he kept us at arm’s length — we know relatively little about his personal life or his past (not that we need to know anything), but his presence, his spirit was so immense, he enfolded us and gave us 3 years of peaceful abundance in the business. He was thankful for us and we for him. I tear up very easily thinking about him and what God must see in this unfolding journey. I’m trusting.
