James watches his brother's video and says to me this morning, "I miss my brother."
He says that often.
It's hard for a little boy to grieve the loss of his friend and brother.
He and I talk about Jerard and James tells me what he remembers - Jerard's laugh, the seizures, playing with him.
I hug James and we talk about Jerard.
We share memories, I give James many hugs.
He's glad Jerard can see in Heaven but he misses his brother here on earth.
Pray for James as he continues to process the loss of his brother.
Today marks the one year anniversary of Jerard's death.
It's been a hard year on many fronts but His grace is in the pain, His healing is in the wounding, I love my Saviour deeper and I just say, "Lead on o King Eternal."
I'm so thankful to have Jerard as my son. I'm so thankful he was our special visitor from Heaven for four and one half years.
