Love is so Poignant and Beautiful in Grief

Love is so Poignant and Beautiful in Grief November 20, 2017

David Alexander writes a beautiful tribute to his mother, who entered eternal life on November 6, 2016:

Our mother taught us the redemptive value of suffering. You never know how much you need God, until you uncover the veil of delusion, and realize that all is not well. No one needed God more than our mother, and one might daresay that no one ever counted on him more. Cheating death (if only for a while), cheating the odds, she prevailed.

Read the whole thing.  A lovely tribute from a good son to a good Mom.
