So hard to let go & "move on"

Genesis 23:1 Sarah lived one hundred and twenty-seven years; these were the years of the life of Sarah.

2 So Sarah died in Kirjath Arba (that is, Hebron) in the land of Canaan, and Abraham came to mourn for Sarah and to weep for her.

Sarah lived 127 yrs. Now she passes on to eternity, leaving behind a husband and her promised son Isaac. I dont believe the lose of a spouse is something one ever gets over, even with time. Abraham had her by his side thru so much, shared the testimonies of God and enjoyed life together. Im sure Abraham is devistated here. Sarah, well she didnt make it to see her promised son Isaac get married. Death is a horrible reality and none are immune from it. I cant imagine my wife ever passing away. We joke about who gets to pass first but we never stay on that topic long. I can recall so much life we have been thru, and its only been 27 yrs. So much ministry, so many conversations, so many places we've seen together. Then I look back at Abraham & Sarah, what love they shared. Only God could bring two people together and enjoy each other to this point, as they did. Now she is gone. Now what, Abraham must have thought. Im sure Abraham had some advice to give married couples, live each day as if its your last together. Maximize every opportunity you have together. Enjoy each other while you still are able.
