To Everything There Is a Season

Two years ago tonight I was with Christina and Brandon as Christina labored to give birth to daughter Morgan. (Morgan would not make her appearance until the next evening on December 3, 2011.) I stayed awake and worked alongside Christina, as we both insisted Brandon try to get some rest after his chemo treatment earlier that day. 
Brandon gets his turn (after new mommy Christina's) to hold his newborn daughter, Morgan, skin-to-skin
Eighteen months ago tonight I was with Christina and the rest of our family as Brandon's spirit left the wonderful body that had gotten its start within mine…

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die…  Ecclesiastes 3

  1. That picture, right there, is ALL. It is the beginning and the end. The alpha and the omega. The being born and the dying. The mystery and the love. The unbridled love that knows no end and little understanding. It is the deepest joy skin to skin with the deepest sadness. It is God's love that never ends yet keeps us baffled throughout our time on this earth. Peace be with you, Karen.
