Repost: There’s a Hole in my Bucket


I was talking to my husband the other day about how hard it is to describe the ongoing difficulty of living with child loss.

And this song popped into my head….

There’s a Hole in My Bucket

Author: Melanie

I am a shepherd, wife and mother of four amazing children, three that walk the earth with me and one who lives with Jesus. This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose.

      1. No one is ever too broken to be used by God. Nothing is ever wasted in His Kingdom. It may begin very small-just being willing to listen to even a stranger who is having a hard day with compassion and grace. I didn’t start writing until almost 1 1/2 years after Dominic left us. (I had written a journal every day but not the blog.) But I was a writer before we lost him so God folded this new and awful experience into something He was already doing in my life. The world is full of self-focused people, but once our hearts are so utterly broken, they are also opened up to the many others who are hurting. Don’t feel pushed into anything, just be listening for when He whispers to your heart.
