These comments is to share where my grief has been coming from.
Martha, how my heart goes out to you! We have lost one son at the age of 18. This was in 1976. We are so thankful for the love and grace of God. It seems He is always there when we need him, never early, but Never late. May He richly bless you, and help you climb from the deep valley. How wonderful that He brought this person into your life.
Can you imagine all the unclaimed blessings that people miss when they allow the color or appearance of another to deter them. God is concerned with the heart, not the outward appearance. "Be kind to strangers, never know when we are entertaining Angels unaware." The Lord wanted so to console your grieving heart Martha. I don't know how long its been since you lost your child. And I am no authority on the consolation of grief. But allow me to share a recent article I wrote "The Mask of Grief". Ironically it too begins at the checkout stand in a grocery store. The Lord's Blessings.
