I Don’t Believe My Son Is 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. Thank you for your comforting writing – Is My Son My “Guardian Angel”? I am with you about not wanting my Brent to see my pain. My son, Brent passed away on 4/17/2012. It will be 10 years soon and it seems like it was just yesterday and it seems so far ago. I didn’t think I could miss someone as much as I miss my son. Thank you again!

  2. I read a book called Heaven by Randy Alcorn and it really helped me after my daughter died. I love the way he portrays heaven and how he backs all his thoughts up with scripture. He also wrote a kids version.
