Today my youngest son would have been 33 years old.

Time may heal a lot of things but I don't believe it will ever take away the sadness I feel when I think of him.   Life has marched forward. The busyness of the round of daily duties fills in the moments but a day never passes that I don't think of him... and my heart continues to grieve... for the dreams that were lost. 

 in the midst of the grief... 
God continues to bless in so many ways

~He has given a greater appreciation 
and thankfulness for loved ones who remain.

~He continues to teach me how to battle
 the accusations and lies of the enemy 
with His Truth. 

~ He has given me a greater understanding
of the Gospel. 

~He has loosened my hold 
on this earth a little more.

~He has given a greater anticipation
 for heaven. 

Yes, life has changed but God keeps His promises.. to never leave or forsake us.. to comfort us in our sorrow... and to give grace in our time of need.

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. Revelation 21:3,4
