Winter Before Spring... Again
I've been sitting with my hands poised over the keyboard for a very long while, wanting to say so many things, knowing that my words are concretely inadequate to convey what is needed. There are so many others who knew her much better, for much longer. And yet, it is a deep loss I feel, a void on this earth and in my heart, that has been left by her departure to meet Jesus face to face.
I have been again reminded that death seems final, but is in actuality a beginning. Even on this earth, after winter comes spring - I've always thought that God probably designed the seasons in part as a reminder. We may reach the winter of life on earth, but spring and the new beginning follows directly behind it.
"I love you Mama Lynn and know I am blessed to be in the fold of your family. I will not forget that every person is His creation and that every day matters in the Kingdom of God. You taught me that."
