Reflections At 11 Years

My post from five days ago reflected on what would have been our 36th Wedding Anniversary.

Today my reflections turn to 11 years ago, today my son Joe passed away. Of course, I miss him every day and this day invokes many thoughts of what would he be doing now, and how I would love that he was still here. I'm so very thankful he was here for 18 years. He was the third born of our four children and was our only son. He participated in just about every sport from the time he was three years old-baseball, soccer, hockey, football and lastly probably his most favorite was cross country running. Another thing he enjoyed was drawing and painting. I would like to share a couple of his paintings:
I also want to share one of my all-time favorite photos of our foursome. In my humble opinion, I feel the candid photos are the best.  This shows their personalities.   
For the past five days, I have to admit I have been crying a lot. I didn't try to fight the tears, I just allowed myself to cry. Yesterday Saturday, April 27 the verse of the day came up on my phone "Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted" Matthew 5:4. Was this a coincidence?  I would have to say this was not a coincidence. This was the Lord's way of showing comfort to me.   
May the Lord be a comfort to you as well.
Thank you for visiting my small, humble blog.
With love,
