Moments of grief (part 2)

At times life feels fairly normal as we grieve; at other times, it feels almost as though we are suffocating in a longing for the person we have lost.

It is as though we need love as much as the air we breathe and we are gasping to survive when the person we love can no longer be seen or heard or touched. We are lost without them.

And yet all genuine loves can only have their beginning and end in God. How could there be a love that existed apart from the One who is Love?

Tonight is not night for writing but for breathing. Though I cannot see or hear or touch it, the air around me is saturated with a holy Love and I keep breathing...

(I share with you a video of this beautiful song as performed by its composer.)
