Missing him...

My first son, Caleb, was born and died ten years ago today. Ten years - that's hard to believe. We didn't know if we would have another child and have since been blessed with four. That makes me smile every time I think about it. God has been open-handed with me.

But I still miss my son. It isn't constant as it was in those early days, but there are times when the longing for him is physically painful. It feels like the air has been removed from my chest, and the reality that my son is not with me overwhelms me.

I miss him.

  1. Its hard to believe that it has been ten years. I still can't hear Ginny Owens' song "If You Want Me To" without thinking about you and Caleb.

  2. I think of you and Caleb every time I hear "Shout to the Lord."
