I usually attend Bible Study at my church on Wednesday mornings. For obvious reasons, I have not been able to be there these last weeks. I did not attend this week either. Instead, I had errands to run…I went to the administrative office of the memorial park, where Judson is buried, to tie up some loose ends, and I went to the mortuary to select a grave marker for Jud’s burial plot.
As I left the mortuary, I thought of the women in my Bible Study group who were gathered together at that same time. I imagined them talking about their Thanksgiving weeks and the upcoming Christmas holiday. I imagined them discussing the study questions. I imagined them sharing prayer requests. I also remembered that I was part of similar conversations less than a year ago.
But now, my life has been turned completely upside down.
Instead of being at Bible study, I was selecting a grave marker, a grave marker for my beloved 2 ½ year old boy?!!!??!
Life will never be the same.
