CS Lewis once said that "grief is like the sky, it covers everything." In recent weeks, our family has found that this is so very true. It seems that there is no right or wrong way to travel this path of grief. I have created this blog in hopes that some day we will be able to look back on our journey and see written proof that our great God never leaves us. God is good all the time.

Painful Beyond Words


  1. It's really gorgeous. Beautiful. But could never be as beautiful as Laynee.

  2. "There is still one other aspect of loneliness that I think we have to be honest about: There are some situations in which nothing will ever assuage or eradicate our loneliness. There is the loneliness that can never be filled when someone loses a child. To pretend it is otherwise is to trivialize the loss. Such a profound ripping of bonds of connection and love can only be integrated into the whole picture of one’s life. It can never be compensated for or amended in any way." (Seven Choices: Finding Daylight After Loss Shatters Your World)

    Lord Jesus, make a way through. The pain is too deep and too much. Carry us until you take us home and the separation is over.

    Weeping for you and your little girl this morning,
