On the death of our beloved son
There is hope and there is light.
Even in the midst of deep pain.
I still find it so hard to believe.
How in a moment your whole world is tipped-and nothing will ever be the same.
There is a part of you that has to close the door, or deep torment threatens to overcome.
Elijah wasn’t perfect. He made mistakes and poor choices.
He drove us crazy.
Yet he was loved by us. . .and he knew it.
But more importantly he was loved by His Savior.
And in his his Senior Testimony he talks about that love.
Elijah is gone.
His work on this earth finished.
Gary said this morning that he has truly graduated.
How this pains us. . .yet also brings joy.
I will never have to worry about him coming home. . . or what scars he would incur as a
United States Marine. He is safe and he is wrapped in love.
I will also never know what his future might have been. Red haired grand children?
Full of temper and smarts as his dad. . .this is not for us.
But we are still here and our God is great and his name is above all names.
And I long for the day when all nations will come together. . .
In the link below it brings me hope to see so many different nationalities
all singing to the One true God.
The God that you do nothing. . . to receive. He freely gives.
And as we continue to mourn the loss of Elijah we will continue to say,
How Great is our God. . .click on the link and sing with me. . .
