This very hour

One year ago, during this very hour... we let him go.
He left us for a better place, Heaven... and to be with his big sister.
It's unexplainable. The pain, the void... the way you miss him. The way we miss them both. But I know this; Heaven is a much sweeter place now (if thats possible), and I can't wait to be there.


Dragon tales and the "water is wide"
Pirate's sail and lost boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams every night
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

The rocket racer's all tuckered out
Superman's in pajamas on the couch
Goodnight moon, we'll find the mouse
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

God bless mommy and match box cars
God bless dad and thanks for the stars
God hears "amen" wherever we are
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Godspeed
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

I stopped by to say Hi, coming here from "Waiting for Happy"....it was not by accident. I will be praying for you now and through the day.

Our son went home to be with the Lord in Dec. 2002 and I know how hard the journey of grief is, especially when the calendar serves as a daily reminder. I will be praying for you today. That you can rest in God and who He is. That in Him you will find strength to get through the day. That He will wrap His loving arms around you today and carry you.

Grief is a crazy process...allow yourself to feel the emotion, but keep looking up toward God knowing that we do have a hope and you will have a blessed reunion with your son one day. This is not the end.

I am so sorry for your pain and loss.

Love in Christ,
Stacy
