Today marks the one year anniversary of our dear neighbour’s lost battle with Cancer. It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year already. When Megan was first diagnosed, I took this picture. She always hated this picture and God knows I hated taking it. She hated it because in the back of her mind she knew it would become ‘the picture’ on her memorial cards. We can still hear her voice and we still miss her dearly on Moir Dr. It’s not the same since she died nor will it ever be. But we are never without hope! Megan was a strong Christian lady who knew her Saviour. It’s a nice ‘coincidence’ that this one year anniversary comes to us on Palm Sunday – when all the little children ran out to greet Jesus and welcome Him. Our dear friend is not to be pitied. We are. For she now gets to see her Saviour face to face. We miss you muchly dear friend and can’t wait to see you again!
Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
I was blessed to take some pictures of a very special little girl the other day. Cozi has a bittersweet baby story. There were two but her twin had severe health complications and didn’t survive. The emotions that accompany both having and losing a baby at the same time are nearly impossible to put into words. We look for answers to the big question “why?” – but there aren’t any. We know that our world is a place marred by death and iniquity, of which none of us is immune. At times of tragedy, the Christian Faith encourages us that our loving and gracious God sees things we don’t, works in ways we don’t understand, and by the gift of His cross and resurrection, has conquered death by death. We trust that the anger and sadness we now feel at the loss of a child will be turned into rejoicing and reunion in eternity.
When I was asked to take photos, instantly a photo came to mind. We wanted to be real to the situation to rejoice and celebrate but also mourn and be sad at the same time. This mirror image photo of Cozi wraps it all up as she and ‘Bella Vita’ are forever together in the photo.
