The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away; blessed be the name of the Lord
Job’s prayer is often more piercing than we think. There are times in life when we just cannot understand God’s will, why He gives and why He takes–and so quickly. I’m going through one of those times, but I do so with the knowledge that my son is now in the Father’s embrace. He is spared from the travails of this valley of tears and will be able to do now what he was created for: to worship God for all eternity. I do hope to meet him one day, to hold him, to share with him all that I’ve been feeling lately. For now, I rejoice in having been a father twice over now and in having a child to pray for me from above.
