I know that before Dominic ran ahead to Heaven I didn’t really think a lot about grief.
I had lost grandparents and other relatives, but no one so close to me that the thought of how I was supposed to relate to them after death made a daily difference.
I realized when Dominic left, that all the love I ever felt for him I still felt.
All the parts of me that belonged to him still belonged to him and the parts of him that belonged to me still belonged to me.
Love doesn’t die. Love lives as long as the person doing the loving has breath.
Grief doesn’t replace love.
It IS love.

I’ve been focusing on 1 Cor 13:12-13.
My daughter and I had discussed these verses just days before she was killed. Our pastor used that conversation at her service. He explained that NOW, we have faith, hope and love. In eternity, there will be no need for faith and hope. Only love remains eternally. So! Love will continue even after we take our last breath. 💚

Amen. And love is what ushers us into the Kingdom, what keeps us there and what helps us hold onto hope. ❤️
I also had preconceived notions that the loss of my parents would be the most devastating thing to happen in my life. However when my daughter,Amelia, and my son, Daniel ran ahead, it knocked me to my knees!
Thank you for today’s post! It shed a new light on grief!
