I’ve probably thought more about the nature of time in the past seven years than in the fifty before that.
I can vaguely remember contemplating eternity as I drifted off to sleep as a teen but it made my head hurt and I gave up.
Now, though, the relationship between time as I know it and eternity-which I can’t really comprehend-is something I think about often and long.
Years may stretch before me until I join Dominic at the feet of Jesus. But years compared to forever will be but a blink of an eye.❤
It’s just not comforting for my heart to think my son is looking down on me from Heaven.
I can’t reconcile the idea that he might be watching my sorrow with what the Bible says about Heaven being a place of joy and peace.

Oh what powerful thoughts…This post gives me that little chunk of peace my heart longs for…What Mother doesn’t wonder about this gap of time and the possibility of the mere turn of his head as he runs through Heaven just as we tried to explain Heaven to our little children. I don’t have many photos that were just ‘before’ but one that I do have on the wall of my sewing room was taken 20 yrs before Ryan “ran ahead”…he is laying in tall green grass, his head cradled in his clasped arms looking up to Heaven with a big smile & sunglasses. That is how I love to remember him…Thank you, Melanie…my heart has been so sad & angry….I need to rest my eyes on that photo more!
