Repost: Is My Son My “Guardian Angel”?

It’s really hard to wrap my mind around what exactly Dominic is doing now that he’s not here with me.  Sometimes I try to create a narrative or a scene or a story line that gives me something to hold on to.

It’s not easy though.  

So I absolutely understand why some parents think of their missing child as their “guardian angel”.  But that just doesn’t correspond to what Scripture tells me about what happens after death.

I firmly believe that there is a heaven and that my son is there, in the presence of Jesus and the saints that have gone before.

  1. Excellent, Melanie. I have been leading GriefShare for over a decade and no one has said this as well as you. I love reading your posts each day. Our Jessica left for Heaven five years ago this month. It often seems like only weeks since she was here. You speak to my heart. Thank you. Blessings, Evelyn

    1. Thank you for that encouragement. There are a couple of friends who lead grief groups who use a post here or there in the groups. If you ever want to- feel free to print one. The only thing I ask is that it be reproduced in full and the website and source is clearly indicated. God bless you for gently leading other hearts in this life none of us would choose. ❤️

  2. Thank you!. I have struggled with this for 3 years. I want my Daniel to only know joy and celebration. I don’t want him to be able to look down on me and see my pain.

  3. I am not religious but feel this resignates with me so many ways. When people say he’s watching over me, it’s always another, hmmm you have no idea moment. But i do believe similar. I believe he is safe, i do feel we do get to feel/hear/see echos of one another. But i know my gramma would only allow him to see me within my glory (perceived glory). It would break their hearts to see us so broken. But if only i can express how every moment of my sorrow was worth the opportunity to meet him.
