"I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness." Psalm 17:15
My brother, Jordan, who died in March, has a headstone now. He died right when our state ground to a halt with the corona virus, so my parents couldn't get a stone until recently.
Kris and I stopped to see it today. There was nothing to stop the fresh flood of tears standing there by his stone.
Jordan had numerous physical limitations, from birth and throughout his life here on earth. This verse above holds much more meaning to our family in light of his condition.
He couldn't enjoy life in many of the usual ways we do.
On the other hand, Jordan never knew the worries and cares of this life because he couldn't understand that. If he was ever angry, he never expressed it. Complaints never came out of his mouth.
He was often contentedly playing with a few of his favorite objects, spoons and pencils.
While my heart hurts from missing him, I can't be sorry that he is with the Lord and, for the first time in his life, fully able to function as he was created to do.
