Isaiah 6:8

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Two Years In Heaven

Yesterday I got a sweet email with a very touching email from my sister from another mother - Marcie.  As I sat at my desk and read her poem tears poured down my face.  She really knows me well.  Today is the anniversary of my mom's death.  All this week I have thought about dancing with my mom, singing with them both, being held as a child.....and feeling an uncontrollable emptiness.   I know that many people feel this same feeling....have been there....and made it through the other side....all I can say about I CAN see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I really thought I was handling the day  pretty well until our student's (Tatum) parents were killed on Friday night.   I found myself in a state of deja vu.  I lost both of my parents in an 18 month span.  They were sick and oldish.  Tatum lost both of hers at one time and they were younger than me.  As I thought about Tatum my heart broke for her.  Yesterday was the viewing and today is the funeral.  Pray for Tatum and her family as they begin the grieving process. 
Two years in heaven
It’s been hard to move on
I’ll send you a prayer
And sing you a song.
Two years in heaven
Life’s just not the same
Not a day goes by
I don’t call out your name.

Two years in heaven
I know you watch me from above
Comforting me in hard times
And sending me your love.

Two years in heaven
I’ll be there in a while
I’ll sing and you’ll dance
And we’ll watch daddy smile.
