Reminder From The Remainder

Just came across this photo of Otto Frank, father of Anne, revisiting the attic where his family hid from the Nazis. He was the lone survivor, and knew loss such as few of us living now could comprehend.
So, why is this post on FDW right now?
That picture.
Back in the late 1960's my high school staged the play, "The Diary Of Anne Frank".
The set dressing, the stage, as I remember it, looked remarkably like this picture.
I remember the production because my brother played the character who betrayed the family.
Right now, as always, family and friends, those in my circle...we are all in the process of grieving, mourning, celebrating, welcoming and saying good bye. It's called Life.
Otto Frank remarried, and that is part of this post, too. We move on, cherishing those lost while continuing to Live.

12Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
13Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,
14I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14

Forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward. Keep moving, friends.

Thank you, friend. So true that we are all welcoming and grieving. How much more so now that I am in my later years. God bless you. le
