"Those longings about your clothes point to something much bigger than your clothes. And, it feels most appropriate that you mourn and feel this aching dissatisfaction as you celebrate on Resurrection Day. There is a work Christ has yet to do. He has yet to come back and resurrect those we love--to give Ashlynn a new body..."
I wanted to share because this gives me great hope, not only the reminder of Christ's work, but the reminder that even the way I felt and the things I was ashamed to even mention point to the heart of Christ for me and for Ashlynn. It also makes me feel "normal" and validates the life of Ashlynn and the pain that resides in her absence.
I like these lyrics from "Come to Jesus" by Mindy Smith:
Never hide your face from me
I've conquered hell and driven out the demons
I have come with a life to set you free
Worry not my daughters,
Worry not my sons
Child, when life don't seem worth livin'
Come to Jesus and let Him hold you in His arms
