A Note To The Grieving

A parents worst nightmare. Losing a child and having to bury them. A man lost his son and couldn’t bare the thought of living without him. He was suffering and couldn’t believe his son was gone. He cried and cried every day and night, missing his son, wishing things were different.

He couldn’t sleep and hadn’t slept in a long time. One night an old man came to him in a dream and told him “Enough!! That’s enough crying!!” The dad told him “I can not stop, I am never going to see him again!” The old man said “Do you want to see him again?” The dad says “yes of course” the old man takes him to the gates of heaven where he sees many little beautiful children, so happy and innocent, Carrying lit candles into the gates of heaven, smiling and laughing and just so beautiful. The dad asks “where is my son? Who are these kids?” The old man said “these are the children that are called home early, They are innocent and loved and they go right through to heaven, so happy” the dad says “and my son? Where is he? Why isn’t he with these children?” The old man said “come this way” and guided him to the side of heavens gate. A small boy with a beautiful smile was standing there watching all the children enter Heaven. He was standing there with a candle that was not lit. His dad grabbed him and hugged him, and the boy kissed his dads cheeks and told him he missed him. The dad said “why isn’t your candle lit like the other kids? Why are you waiting here at the gates?”

The boy said “I keep lighting it Daddy, but your tears put it out. I see you are so sad and I am tied to that feeling so I wait here until you’re ok” the Dad burst out crying for the last time, he told his son, “light your candle and go, I will be ok, and I know you will be too” 🥺

- Don't cry too long for that loved one you lost, whether son, daughter, husband, mother or father!! Let them rest in peace, don't torment your life, because they won't come back, have faith that you will be together again, and that Creator makes us a beautiful home with all our loved ones when we leave this world.

With love and service xx
