Hello Again, Familiar Friend…

Oh grief, no matter how much time has passed, there is no escaping your return.  Ten years, an entire decade, has passed.  I’m always amazed how forever and yesterday can feel the same.  Today it hurts to breathe and the tears spill out as I long for my 2.5 year old, blue-eyed boy who had the sweetest little voice.  I come to my keyboard hoping to write something that can capture what my heart is feeling, to unravel the emotions wound so tightly around my heart, but the words don’t come so easily.  My tender-hearted almost ten year hugs his mama knowing today into tomorrow evokes tenderness and sorrow.  His embrace reminds me of God’s sovereignty and how, even in the midst of heartache, there is hope and promise in tomorrow.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
