Heavy Hearts

This post is a bit old but our son Luke lost his fight almost 2 weeks ago.  We're taking a break to get away from real life and I'll most likely be taking a short break from blogging as well for the next week or so.

  1. I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't even begin to imagine what you must be feeling. I followed along with your tales of Luke and his strength and found some for myself along the way.

  2. Sorry for your loss JC. He fought as long as he could but God has plans for him now. You and your wife did as best as you could and he'll be forever remembered. All you can do now is stay strong for Luke and move forward. He'll want the both of you to start a fresh chapter.
    Take it easy bud and we will see you when we see you. Thanks for sharing JC. I wish your family the best.

  30. When i was going through some really down times someone recommended i read "The Prophet" By Kahlil Gibran it changed my life here is his excerpt on Death because i can not express in words how sad i am for you. I hope this reaches your family Stay strong and we will all be here whenever your ready to return you are one of my biggest inspirations.
    On Death
    Kahlil Gibran

    You would know the secret of death.
    But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life?
    The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light.
    If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.
    For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.


    In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;
    And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring.
    Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.
    Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour.
    Is the shepherd not joyful beneath his trembling, that he shall wear the mark of the king?
    Yet is he not more mindful of his trembling?


    For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
    And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?


    Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
    And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
    And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.
