I know there is a lot of discussion about God lately. When Nate was taken, I was never mad at God but felt closer to him more then ever. I was told by a friend "You know how much you loved your child? Well, God loves him even more and will take care of him like you did." I found comfort in that and in my Lord Jesus. Here is a prayer a friend sent me that I found so appropriate, I want to share it. Please pass it along.
Decree From One Who Has Transitioned (crossed over)
Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other,
that we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way
which you always used.
Put no difference in your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without affect,
without the trace of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same that it ever was.
There is absolutely unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you,
for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just around the corner.
Yes I like to think that this is just and interval and that Nicky is right around the corner waiting till it's my turn.I will continue to laugh at all the little things that he did and I will never get his smile out of my head.For I believe out of sight is not out of mind.Love to you and God Bless
