Life Goes On

Everything that comes to my mind to blog about this morning all seems so trivial. After a very emotional, very hard week where we said our final good-byes to LV's brother Melvin it seems almost unreal that we are getting back into our usual schedule, our normal routines, the sun shines brightly in a brilliant blue sky with fluffy white clouds drifting along lazily. The birds are still singing, and the grass is still a lush green.

Somehow life goes on even though hearts are heavy with sorrow. In all this we still say "God is good, always."

  3. I remember so clearly feeling this same way after my mothers funeral. out could life go on as if nothing had happened? My world had tilted on its axis.

    Praying for you and your entire family for God's peace and comfort to surround you.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  4. It is an odd feeling isn't it? You wonder how everyone you meet can be carrying on as if nothing has happened.

    Even so, as you said, God is good.

  5. It is at times such as this that I am at a loss for words. I cannot tell you how sorry I am for you and your family. I echo what you have already posted and that is "God is good, always". He knows the end from the beginning and makes no mistakes. We may not understand His ways, but He doesn't ask us to understand... just to believe and have faith in Him. I pray that our Lord and Savior will continue to comfort you, LV, Emma and all the children as He holds you all close to His heart and carries you through this time.

  7. who will help Emma raise 14 children? Does the community step in. My heart goes out to you and your family. May God bless you all as you go through this hard trial.

  8. I know the feeling well. My father-in-law, who was like a dad to me, passed away in April. It still seems weird sometimes that we move on and do things, especially when it's something that he would have been right in the middle of or something that he loved. Just lean on Jesus and family. Sending prayers your way.

  11. What a terribly helpless feeling. There's a time to laugh and this is the time to cry. Eventually you will tell a story about him and you will smile. God is good, and all of our hearts and prayers are with all of you.

  12. uhg...my heart aches for the physical loss the family is feeling now. I wish for you all that the strength of the Lord carries you through and that Momma and the children are able to mourn the way they need to but that they will keep their eyes on Him who loves them all so very much.
    ... ... uhg ... prayers and time of quiet for you all.

    Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!
