Remembering Jordan

Today it is 7 years since Jordan left this world. I debated on whether or not to share his/my story as it is not an easy one for me to share but I knew that I must for my son. So if you would like to read it you can go here.

Love goes very far beyond the physical person of the beloved. It finds its deepest meaning in his spiritual being, his inner self. Whether or not he is actually present, whether or not he is still alive at all, ceases somehow to be of importance. -Viktor E. Frankl

Today is also the day we left for Hawaii a year ago, just several days after Carleigh's fatal diagnosis. A trip that would end up being really good for us.

What a week this has been!

Yes, a really tough week for you, Holly. I'm thinking of you my friend. You are very brave to share your story, to share Jordan's story.

Holly, it took a lot of fortitude for you to tell Jordan's story.By telling your testimony a while back, you helped someone else to make a decision for life. Jordan's story is an ongoing one, and I am certain the Lord will continue to use it for good. Although you miss Jordan very much, he is with Carleigh and Jesus. Jesus has heard your plea and forgiven you, just as he has forgiven me for my many transgressions.That is a promise that we can really hold on to. I am so sorry for your sadness - this month is a rough one for you.
Hugs, Sarita

Sending you love and praying for you to have peaceful moments this week with such tough anniversary dates. I think you're very brave for sharing Jordan's story. Have you heard of Rachel's Hope? That's another ministry to women. I think you have a lot to give and a lot to share. Thinking of your Carleigh and Jordan in heaven, watching over their loving mum. xo

Thank you for being willing to share Jordan's story, Holly, even though it's so hard. You are paying tribute to his life each time you tell it. My heart was breaking for you and for him when I read your testimony. I can't imagine what you went through, and it is just so beautiful to see the amazing work God has done in your life since that time. I'm so glad you have felt that complete sense of forgiveness that can only come from Him. Thinking of you Holly, and remembering Jordan and Carleigh with you.
