A mama of five enters Heaven.
Her husband is left with raw pain and a house of little aching hearts.
Today, his first full day without the-woman-he-doesn’t-know-how-to-live-without.
His mama prays for a new heart,
For a strong beat that will push life through his little body.
His daddy’s tears make trails as they drop, drop, drop,
Marking each precious moment of today.
There will be a time for–
Seeing the purpose.
And trying to understand the why.
For putting one foot in front of the other.
And for walking through the pain to a place where feeling awakens.
There is a day of hope and Heaven to find–
And God will light the way there.
Because only God can draw redemption
From such a deep pool of pain.
But today is a day for
Weeping with those who weep.
And God, who loves each one, can handle this pain.
He can handle the doubt and confusion and hurt and
He says: “Pour out your heart to me…” (Psalm 62).
That is enough.
