I would like to dedicate my devotion for today to the memory of my beloved wife, companion, and soulmate, Rosemary Lotito, who left this earth on September 10, 2018.
Rosemary and I were married for over 50 years. We grew up right across the street from each other and knew each other much longer than the 50 years we were married. Growing up, I was into sports and barely noticed girls. Then one day Rosemary caught my eye, and I asked her out for a date. Obviously, we got to know each other very well. She knew me better than I know myself.
She loved cats and had three of them. I am trying my best to take care of them like she asked me to. Life is not the same . . . I miss the heck out of her, but I know I will see her one day, and what a joy that will be! So for now, as always, I trust and have faith in my Lord and Savior, Jesus, who is the only way to true peace.
I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
