I Ask That You Live

Sometimes I think we put all our self worth based on how many people we have in our life that love us.  We feel like life is good when you have a spouse, kids, friends, that love you, but what happens if you loose one or all of those.

I’ve learned that God’s love is more than enough to cover that loss.

You have to go on living.

Thought about that when I saw Marie Tillman in the news yesterday.

She’s Pat Tillman’s widow. He was the football player that enlisted in the Army after 9-11, and then was killed in Afghanistan by friendly fire.

She’s now remarried and had a child.  She shared his “just in case” letter that he had left for her before his deployment. She said it ended up being a gift.

It said, “I’ve asked a great deal of you, therefore it should surprise you little that I have another favor to ask. I ask that you live.’’

Wow! This story is so romantic! He was a true hero -- so others-focused. And you know that a guy truly loves you when he's willing to give you up like that ... to ask that you move on after he's gone.
