To all affected by this violent crime, I send a hug of sympathy with tears, love, and prayers always. The pain in my bleeding heart is excruciating once more. Your child is a part of your body forever. Their absence from this world leaves a hole in your heart that will never be filled. Comfort is a long way off and happiness will never be the same. Even when the journey begins to wane, in time, you will still be able to feel the devestating emptiness return on specific days.
There is hope in the enjoyment of the loving memories they have embedded in our hearts and on our minds. No one can take that away from you! In the end we will be reunited. The more I hear and see through the media, about the murderer and the circumstances that led up to the massacre, I get outrageously mad and say "why didn't they forsee that?" But, going through the grieving process over my son has taught me to know that anger will block any healing. Here are a few excerpts from my grief expression blog:
*THE CENTRAL PLACE FOR THE HEALING OF THE SOUL IS MEANT TO BE THE LOCAL COMMUNITY OF GOD'S PEOPLE.
*All is well with your loved ones because they are in the presence of God the Father in absolute perfection.
*Sometimes it is easier to bear pain ourselves than to watch someone we love suffer.
*Grief is the price you pay for the ability to love.
*The purpose of us sharing our losses together is to console one another and encourage hope.
*Learning to better manage your emotions often greatly reduces only the frequency and the intensity of those emotions.
*As long as there is someone who loves us, we will remain alive. Memories makes us immortal. In truth, love will outlive even memories.
*Dear Lord, help me to grow in your grace --- even when the tears are falling.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
