"Double Blessing challenges us to reframe our perception of blessing, seeing God's gifts as opportunities for increased generosity." —Pastor Louie Giglio

A strange silence

I have never heard

As I walk a path alone,

An unfamiliar moment

When I realize you are gone.

As I look around to notice

That the roads have all been changed

For there's one that now is fading

At a place I called your name.

So I must go on without you

With the memories of the times

Of the journey's made together

That are locked within my mind.

In my heart I know I'll carry

you each step along the way

though the absence now is bitter

it will all turn sweet one day.

For hurt is overtaken

When love comes shining through

In each picture that is taken

There is still a place for you,

As the candle in the window

Will get shorter by the flame

Time will heal the absence

And joy will end the pain.

Dedicated to Milo, our Bassett Hound
