Love


Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken.
If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one,
not even an animal.
Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries;
avoid all entanglements.
Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness.
But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change.
It will not be broken;
it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.
To love is to be vulnerable.  

-CS Lewis

It's so true! Loving, really loving, especially when loss seems likely, takes courage! Because of you, your son knew intense love long before he went home to the greatest love of all. Thanking God for the courageous love he instills in the hearts of parents for their children. God bless you!

I know you are right but sometimes you just can't be broken anymore. Humpty Dumpty can't always take another fall. I will try and remember your wise words.

I listened to this song today and thought of you. Jude has also touched more souls than many ever do. God bless you all during this trying time.
