The longest walk you’ll ever take is the walk away from the grave of someone you love. If you have never done that, you can’t imagine how difficult it is.

  • To walk away and feel as if the world has come to an end.
  • To walk away and think about what used to be and what might have been.
  • To walk away and realize, “I’ll never be the same again.”
  • To play over and over in your mind the good times, the laughter, the crazy stories.
  • To reach out and touch a face and find it gone forever.
  • To cry until you can’t cry anymore.
  • To watch them bury your dreams and hopes and all that was good about life.
  • To know it is over, done, finished, the end, and there is nothing you can do about it.
  • To walk away to friends who cannot understand and to a world that hardly cares.

It is the longest walk and the saddest day. Every step takes you away from the tombstone of a broken dream.

Special thoughts from Ray Pritchard

Consider the longest walk you have made after the death of a loved one. What other things would you add to the above list?

IF WE PRAYED AS MUCH AS WE WORRIED, WE’D HAVE A LOT LESS TO WORRY ABOUT! GIVE GOD YOUR WORRIES!
