Television actress and producer, Connie Ferguson has been going through what some might say is the most difficult time of her life following the untimely death of her soul mate Shona Ferguson. The producer passed away following Covid-19 complications.
Mam Connie has been documenting her mourning process through social media. This morning she shared a verse from the book of Isaiah from the Holy Bible.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us, a son is given: and the government shall be upon his SHOulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
On the 9th of August 2021, she took to Instagram to open up about a special session they used to share called ‘Carpet Sundays.’
“Today is carpet Sunday. I miss my person. Every Sunday we’d just lie on the carpet and talk about everything under the sun or nothing at all. We’d just lie here and be with each other. I miss his physical presence so much but I feel in spirit that he is still with me.
“I haven’t had the guts to lie on the carpet. Since Sho got sick, leading up to his elevation to glory, I just didn’t think that I could do this on my own so today being the 8th day of month eight of one which is 2021, it dawned on me that it is a new day and I bless God for that. I bless God for…I call it the supernatural strength because I don’t know how I am able to do this, it can only be God. I wanted to share a word with you,” she said.
Connie added that a verse from John 14 has comforted her during her time of mourning.
It’s from John 14 verse 16 and 17. It says, ‘And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognise him. But you know him because he lives with you now and later will be in you’
“When I read this, I just thought about everything that happened and thought about how as Christians we love to say ‘he who is in me is greater than he who is in the world but how much of that do we actually believe because when things don’t go our way we fall part and feel betrayed and I did. I did. I asked a lot of whys. I asked a lot of why him, he was so young and still had so much to offer. I asked a lot about our plans, what happens to our plans now. So many questions.” She said in part.
