1 month since my Landyn...

Posted on March 29, 2012 at 3:03pm 1 Comment

It's been 1 month today since my son, Landyn, passed away. At just 16 months old, I didn't have him very long at all, but it feels I've had him my entire life and I should have him the rest of my life. I'm feeling pretty numb today and that's better than the feeling I normally have since he passed. I still find it too painful to go over the events of the day I lost him. Maybe I am still in denial. I find myself sitting in the chair and I tell myself if I think…

Dear Amber,

I am so sorry for your loss. So much pain. So many doubts and questions. Hopelessness seems to hover over us like dark clouds that will not go away. But there is comfort to be had. Hope can bring back meaning to life but that hope must be based on truth.

Here is a bit of truth.

"And, taking the hand of the young child, he said to her: “Tal´i·tha cu´mi,” which, translated, means: “Maiden, I say to you, Get up!” ... And immediately the maiden rose and began walking, for she was twelve years old. And at once they were beside themselves with great ecstasy."

This is a scripture from the Bible book of Mark (chapter 5 verses 41 and 42)

We can only imagine how those parents felt. Their precious child had died. But now Jesus had reunited them. He had given her life again. The verse says that the parents were "beside themselves with great ecstasy." 

We are beside ourselves with great heartache and sadness because of our loss and don't see the way out sometimes. But Jesus proved that he is greater than even death itself.  He promised that one day he would reunite every family.

But for now many of us are left with heartache and confusion. 

Why did God take my loved one?
Why does God cause so much suffering and grief?
What really happens to us when we die?
Why do we die?

To find answers to these questions please follow the links below. I found the information there very educational and comforting.

Please know that our loved ones whom we have lost in death will rise again just as that 12 year old girl did. We WILL be reunited with them right here on earth in a paradise. Knowing that gives us a wonderful hope. It will not take the pain away, but it will give us comfort, and the hope of a future life with our children.
