My Testimony: A Video

I was asked a few months ago to record a short video sharing about how my son’s death impacted my faith.

It was the first time in the more than seven years since he ran ahead to Heaven I’d tried to tell the story in so few words.

And while I’ve shared much of this same material (plus even more details, thoughts and feelings!) here on the blog, I thought a few of you may want to watch this short video to gain some background you might have missed.

I DID misspeak in one instance-my eldest son was not yet in the Air Force at that time. He was out of town though when I got the news of his brother’s accident.

So here you go:

  1. Carla’s death nearly killed me and her twin. Her little cat, Danny developed depression. The secondary losses have been shocking too. Your blog has been one weapon in my arsenal. Surely God has his hand in this. Thank you dear.

  2. I am grateful for all that you do to give us hope in the words you write and your words are often in that tangled web of thoughts in my head. I have had a crisis of faith since my son died and while I know in my head God is Still God, I don’t feel His presence. I still seek Him but right now can’t feel Him through my tears and pain.

  3. Magnificent Melaine, thank you again firstly for your courage as you walk along the road and then for your courage to share ❤
    Peace be with you. xxx

    ps I know this may not mean a lot in the scheme of things but you looked lovely. You have said in the past how much Dominic’s death has affected your health…you looked so fresh. Take good care.
    Love Carol

    1. Thank you, Carol. That means so much to me. We may never meet this side of Heaven but I’ll be looking for my friend from across the pond so I can give you a big hug! ❤
