  • 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.
