  • When You Love Someone in Heaven

    By day, he played like all the other little boys in neighborhood. You’d never know he was carrying a heavy blanket of grief.

    It was at night, tired and finally quiet after the day’s activity, that I’d often hear him crying or see the silent tears as we talked.

    On this night, I listened as Matt prayed. He thanked God for the good day and prayed for kids all over the world that needed help.  And then he closed with this:

    Tell my dad I said hello.

    Tell my dad I said hello.

    Those words held pain but they also held connection.

    Heaven had always seemed far off in time and space. It was a sure thing but a someday thing, so distant from the busy days of our life raising kids and paying bills.

    And then it wasn’t.

    My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
