Loss and Recovery

I’d been listening to the local country western station, because for me, music is a soother. I grew up playing in a band in high school and have a love and appreciation for music built from that foundation. The result is a fairly eclectic taste in music. When my husband died, I started feeling like the country station just wasn’t doing it for me, so I got my Christian CD’s out, copied them to a flash-drive and was using that in my car as I traveled around Houston doing the job I love, helping others with emotional pain. I myself was hurting and was often seen in my car chatting with Jesus who rides shotgun every day with me. When I had to get the battery replaced, I’d been using a loaner and took the stick with me to the loaner car. When I got my car back from the shop, all of my preset stations were gone and I’d forgotten the stick in the loaner car. I did get the stick back, but in the meantime, my car station was preset to 89.3. I sat in shock as I listened to song after song of uplifting music and then heard the banter of the two DJ’s as they relayed the 30 day challenge and the purpose.

At the end of the 30 days the love that sticks came along and I kept listening. The stick never got put back and the beauty here, I told my friend about the 30 Day Challenge, and he listens now every day as well and we’ve been spreading it around to anyone that will listen. So as I drive around Houston ministering to others in emotional pain, with Jesus riding shotgun and KSBJ on the radio, I get my emotional needs met and the peace that I’d been struggling to find again after the loss of my husband has returned.  I still miss him but I know I’ll see him again when we all go home. Thank you for being there every day with the laughter, the joy, and the peace.
