^ That. That post. Nails it.
Jack has been a dear friend of ours for quite a while now. I think his post about the death of his father manages to capture the empty feeling that lingers on through your life once a parent is gone.
And it’s also a beautiful and touching description of a holy moment – the separation of the veil between heaven and earth. Aslan’s country. Further up and further in.
I lost my mom 17 years ago, fresh out of college and naive to the world. My dad followed 3 years later. I still feel like a child sometimes.
You can live without your parents. But I don’t know that I’ve ever gotten over losing them.
