Sudden, Unwelcome Change

Imagine being used to the modern convenience of electricity at the flip of a switch and then being suddenly plunged into darkness and disconnection.

Unprepared-no matches, no alternative fuel sources, no extra warm clothes for winter days and nights-just plucked from the world you knew and dropped into a world you didn’t.

That’s what it felt like when Dominic ran ahead to Heaven.  No warning, no chance to think through what life might be like, what changes I would have to accommodate, how I would need to face the days, weeks, months and years of his absence.

  1. Beautifully said. Our 35 (she celebrated her 35th birthday 4 days after her diagnosis)year old daughter was diagnosed with uterine cancer on 11/17/2020 & died 12/4/2020. A rare , aggressive type of cancer & a puzzle to the medical world since she was so young & no family history. No chance to fight it since they fell she had it less than 2 months. The way you put the darkness is so true. My heart is broken & will be for the rest of my earthly life.

    1. I am so very sorry for your pain and your loss. What a devastating experience!

      Little by little the light will creep back in even though now you can’t imagine it possible. I pray that the Lord greets you each morning with fresh grace and strength to hold onto hope. May you feel HIs loving arms around you and may His peace and comfort overwhelm your heart. ❤
