Are You Afraid of Losing Someone?

Are You Afraid of Losing Someone?

“You will be missed, because your seat will be empty.”         1Sa 20:18 NIV

Who’s the one person whose death you dread most? Is it causing you anxiety? If so, begin to put these things into practice: (1) Ask God for the grace to accept death as an inevitable part of life. Both you and your loved one will eventually die, and no one but God knows who’s going to do so first. Therefore, worrying about something outside your control only robs you of your peace and joy. (2) Maximize each moment. If you knew the exact date of your loved one’s departure, what would you wish you’d done? Or not done? Would you take that trip you’ve always talked about? Would you be less critical and more complimentary? Would you spend more time with them, and tell them more often that you love them? (3) Don’t give another moment of your time to silly arguments and little irritations. (4) Make every effort to be sure your loved one is in right standing with God. Then you can be assured they’re at peace, and that you’ll spend eternity together. (5) Remember, your loved one is God’s loved one too. And He loves them even more than you do. When the time comes, God will be right there with you. “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me” (Ps 23:4). (6) Try to picture your loved one in heaven. Jesus said, “I go to prepare a place for you…that where I am, there ye may be also” (Jn 14:2-3). The parting will only be momentary, but the reunion will be forever.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup?
I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any tips or advice
would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with?

I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a
hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
