LIVING FOR LEZLIE

Search

A Loaded Gun….

Think about this for a minute, your life changed, suddenly and drastically, how do you continue to live. Of course, there are many reasons to live but, at certain moments or times of the day, you forget all of this.


You don’t live, not in the dead sense but, solitary confinement sense, so to speak.


Everything you loved, you don’t love anymore. You don’t love sports, music, friends, any of that. You love aloneness. You love being where no one is.

Then, you decide you have to live, and not the breathing sense. You think it’s best to remember all the things that made you you, even the missing things. Even whatever it was that made you want to stop living.


Say you like to hunt and you don’t because how can someone that wanted to stop living sit with a loaded gun. A loaded gun that is within reach. A loaded gun that could change so many things.

In a way, that’s an easy way to stop living and that is in the breathing sense. But, heaven awaits you. What you are missing also awaits you. So, that loaded gun sits in the corner of that deer stand. It sits. You don’t even want to pick it up to shoot what you are out there to shoot.


You see, that loaded gun can represent so many things. For those fighting a battle they think they’ll never win, it represents freedom. For those hurting because of a sudden and drastic change, it represents a sense of peace. For those that deal with what it can do, it represents pain.

That loaded gun will remain unloaded and put up until next year, when it can be used for its purpose and not to represent freedom, peace or pain.

When someone that loved using it for sport cannot bear to look at it, ask them why. Be the peace they need in another sense or the freedom, just don’t help them be your pain or suffering. Listen. Talk. Love.

“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall…..”

The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart;  the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.  Those who walk uprightly enter into peace, they find rest as they lie in death.

Isaiah 57:1-2
