Letting Go...

The month of July was a month of transitions, changes and letting go...

On a Tuesday afternoon in July, the day after his 90th Birthday, my Dad passed away. So, how does one articulate what it feels like to no longer have any living parents?

We find by losing
We hold fast by letting go
We become something new by ceasing to be something old
Out of nothing He creates something
Out of the end He creates the beginning
All's lost – All's found

I know no more now than I ever did about the far side of death as the last letting go of all, but I begin to know that I do not need to know and that I do not need to be afraid of not knowing. God knows and that’s all that matters.
What marvels will He bring to pass next? (Frederick Buechner)

“…No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT

With great love there is much grief. Love and sorrow are the two sides of the same coin, and my heart is pulled and torn between peace and pain – I miss you!
