Two more Angels in Heaven
Shlama Akhi Paul,

I have no words. If such words existed they would have been uttered by people long ago and far smarter than I could ever hope to be. Jaye and I feel like our hearts have been ripped out and stomped on, to think of such a heinous act against the most innocent and wonderful among us.

And, what can we say that you don't already know so very well? Those children are with Maran Y'shua--count on that. He will lift them up into his bosom, and they will know joy and laugh again. The kingdom of heaven already belongs to them.

It is, as we say in my family, "beyond beyond", and just a very bad week all around--my father's tombstone unveiling is on Sunday, and it coincides with the Yahrzeit (annual remembrance) of my grandfather's death. I thought I knew grief when I lost my grandparents as a kid, then I came to understand the real thing when my Dad died last November. But this--I can't even process what this must feel like. My Dad had 69 years and a full life--these kids had almost no time. The joys of school and friends, sports and prom, love and marriage, all denied them by one thoughtless, evil act. If we did not have eternal life though Akhi, we would have nothing at all, but knowing that does not take all the pain out, but only makes it bearable. And still, well, it royally sucks, what can I say? I don't think faith helps us get around these things, but it can help us go through them and get to the other side, where life and love await us all.

I'll stop now because I know I'm failing miserably to speak my heart well. You know they are in paradise and the great love our Savior has, so you have no need for me to dwell on that either. But where I am weak, Maran is strong for us all.

With deepest sympathies, love and respect... <!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/sad.gif" alt="Sad" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad -->
