One Week

One week ago, I awoke to a call saying that Jonathan was gone.  It was Jonathan's 9th birthday.

We don't know the day Jonathan left this earth, but feel that it was probably a few days before.  Why? 

Because God was touching many and calling people to pray for Jonathan...from adults to sweet children. 

Why?

Because of a moment in time that God gave to my husband with his son.  He said it lasted about three seconds. 

He saw Jonathan older and knew it was him.  His son was sitting by him slightly turned away and he heard, "Thanks Dad".

Jonathan is gone and it seems like it happened yesterday...and it seems like the world has slowed for the last year. 

We move forward looking forward to wrapping our arms around our son in Heaven.

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
