The past couple of days are so long. It seems every direction I turn, I miss Rich. I find myself smiling at a special memory, and then crying just as quickly a few minutes later. Went to make breakfast, and realized I missed asking him what he’d like me to make for him this morning. It seemed whatever I gave him, from yogurt to a poached egg on toast, he would always smile, and say, “That is just want I needed, thank you.” Every time…

So now, trying to do errands, phone calls, paper work, and get back into my contract work. A friend was speaking with me a bit ago and shared with me this hymn. I’d never heard it before. I found the words to be comforting, hope you enjoy them too.

Immortal honors rest on Jesus’ head;
My God, my portion, and my Living Bread;
In Him I live, upon Him cast my care;
He saves from death, destruction, and despair.

He is my Refuge in each deep distress;
The Lord my strength and glorious righteousness;
Through floods and flames He leads me safely on,
And daily makes His sovereign goodness known.

My every need He richly will supply;
Nor will His mercy ever let me die;
In Him there dwells a treasure all divine,
And matchless grace has made that treasure mine.

O that my soul could love and praise Him more,
His beauties trace, His majesty adore;
Live near His heart, upon His bosom lean;
Obey His voice, and all His will esteem.
