Powerful phrase. We include it as part of our wedding vows. We will stay together till death do us part. It’s much more powerful than that really. It’s what life is all about. Life is just life till death do us part. Our partners are with us till death do us part. Our children are with us till death do us part. Our pets are with us till death do us part. Our friends are with us till death do us part.
That terrible moment arrived in my house this morning. My dog is no longer with us, due to another person’s negligent driving.
I stood outside mourning, trying to restrain the anger that rose up in me. I was contemplating the whole life and death issue when I heard the peacock call. Such a beautiful creature with a call that always sounds as if he is crying for help. Help! Help!
His call is echoing in my heart. The difference is that right now my heart is not beautiful like he is. My heart is black with anger and resentment. I am crying out to God to for help.
