The supermarket brought back memories

Yesterday, I went grocery shopping at a Korean supermarket. Shreds of memories from some years ago, when my best friend Kody had visited the same market with me, rolled back into my mind. I felt as if Kody walked beside me and chatted with me. When I reached the tea section, his words rang loud in my ears as I recalled the moment when he told me the brand of tea he liked.

The market didn’t change much, only the food court was no longer there. I remembered Kody and I had a nice meal at one of the shops.

Things change. Things disappear. But my memories of Kody seem afresh. Though he has gone home to be with the Lord, he still lives within my heart.

  6. Sweet memories of a departed loved one can be triggered by almost anything, bringing both pain and joy. But the hope of seeing them again one day is overwhelmingly wonderful. Thank you for sharing yours with us.

    There are people who may leave us but their memories would always stay with us. May his soul rest in peace and be comforted that he is resting in the bosom of our Father.

    How very touching to hear of this powerful memory and I am sure Kody is smiling, as part of God’s ‘great crowd of witnesses…” Bless you, my friend. In Jesus, Susan
