A Faint Echo

Just out of earshot my heart strains to hear the faint echo of Dominic’s voice-his humor, his lively sarcasm and biting wit I can almost convince myself that he’s there in the room as the two other boys banter back and forth. 

I’m used to a trio, not a duet. 


It’s like the blues without a bass line. 

How can it be the same song and yet a different one altogether?

Oh, how I miss him!

for the rest of my life I will search for moments full of you

  1. tonight…as the two year mark of his homegoing arrives…I did just that very thing…touching things John Paul had touched…eyes closed I could almost feel him there…it is so very different, having carried him within for nine months, awaiting – eagerly awaiting his arrival to earth…his absence is unlike any other loss I have experienced…grandparents, parents, loved ones, siblings, cousins, all that have gone before have left a gaping hole in my soul, but nothing like the loss of my firstborn son…and I cry out at times, Lord, just what are we still here for? with all the evil manifesting in so many different arenas…Maranatha! Come Quickly, Lord Jesus! I am thankful you give yourself to this blog communication, Melanie…you have ministered to me and so many…you may have no idea just how much… ❤
