Trying to Tell Me Something….

I made a corner in my house a few weeks ago, as a place for remembering. It has our family pics up from 2008, a few months before Jason passed. This weekend I found my little boy there, huddled in the corner, doing what looked like praying.

He’s 7, and unfortunately we dont get to church as much as we should… like ever. I pray with them, talk to them about God, but.. I think he needs more. Obviously theres always room for more God in someone’s life, especially for a little boy who’s lost his father. I knew that already. I just didnt act as quickly as I pictured I would when I reviewed my “game plan” as a new single mom.

For one thing, it aches to be in church without Jason. It literally creates a tightness in my throat and chest to be in places we used to be together, as a family. Family unit activities hurt. A lot. I feel wedged between two enormous feelings of hurt and disbelief, and a sense of loss for my children, being robbed of something so vital as a good father.

I digress.. As much as it broke my heart to see him there, praying so solemly, like a little old wise man, as much as I wanted to ask him what he was doing… I walked away. I said nothing.

Maybe God is trying to tell me something.


  1. I truly appreciate this post. I¦ve been looking everywhere for this! Thank goodness I found it on Bing. You’ve made my day! Thx again

  2. I needed to put you the little bit of observation to finally say thanks a lot yet again over the lovely pointers you’ve contributed on this website. It was wonderfully open-handed of you to convey freely all that a number of people would’ve sold as an e-book to get some dough on their own, certainly now that you might have done it if you desired. Those pointers in addition acted as a fantastic way to understand that other people online have the same eagerness much like my very own to find out much more in terms of this condition. Certainly there are thousands of more pleasurable times up front for those who start reading your blog post.
