"After All..."

Soon it will be the anniversary death of my son, Jim Lenahan. 

After all the emotions that each stage of Grief delivered, this avalanche of anguish has buried my ability to let go.  

It's not time yet.  The ache of loss is with me at dawn, and lingers throughout the day.

Not quite two years have passed since Jim's death, when I wrote this.  Since that time, the Lord has given me strength and peace for each day.  I miss him and I think about him often. 

And Jesus said to them:

"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30

"By the grace of God, I am what I am."
