A letter to Lori…

Dear Lori,

To read what is coming from your heart on Facebook is like reading Rumi himself. Grief is certainly breaking you open to new realms. You speak from a trans-personal space that only love can bring you to……. that is, inside the agony of grief. You are right. To make sense of this tragedy and  get mired in the “why’s” is to take that road He and he told us not to take……the road of fear.  In his words, “We are always moving toward love or toward fear.”  Every decision moves with one or the other.

Jeff lived and loved fiercely. He laughed and wept deeply. You two are intertwined eternally and shine a light into this world….so bright. It can never burn out. It can only take new form.

It has been quite some time since your voice spoke on Facebook.  The gap from August 6 until today, December 3rd, is long. I pray you have found a new outlet to inspire others with your grace.

I miss you. I love you. I honor you. All my love, tears, faith, and hope to you and the boys. adobe-spark-23
