Simple Grace - - Mood Index -

“Dear Lord, my lit­tle sis­ter was born nearly 10 years af­ter I was, and we al­ways called her our lit­tle an­gel—but when You called her home when she was 40, half of my heart went with her. She was so full of love and laugh­ter that she lifted up ev­ery­one around her. In the year since she’s passed, there are days where I still feel like I’m drown­ing in my sor­row. And though I some­times for­get that she’s gone and smile or laugh like ev­ery­one else, after­ward I crash back down to my new re­al­ity: I live in the world with­out my beloved sis­ter. I’ve tried to take com­fort from know­ing she’s with You, but the pain is still there, raw and deep. I’m start­ing to de­spair that my sad­ness will never re­ally end un­til my own life on Earth does. Is that my only hope of com­ing out on the other side of this heart-wrench­ing grief?”
