I really stink when it comes to posting. I try - but my mind still isn't what it once was. I don't know if it will ever be the same again. Friday was a bit hard for me - it started off with hearing Wish you were Here by Mark Harris. They play it on KLOVE all the stinking time and as a matter of fact I had been singing parts of it all week. I don't think I have ever really listened to it though - that is until Friday morning. It just hit me as a love letter from Brent to me from Heaven. Here is the song from youtube -

I hope I didn't start your week off bad - it really is a sweet song. Our hearts should truly long for this. Heaven should live in each of our souls. If it doesn't maybe you should slow down and stop the worthless living AND START REALLY LIVING. As a lover of God, you are just a sojourner here with our hearts longing for HOME!

This is beautiful! I truly believe Brent is watching over you. This is a sweet gift given to you from him. We love you! And this doesn't start my week off bad it starts it off with so much peace and a reminder of the love our Savior has for us. He will not leave us alone or uncomforted. He loves us and is aware of all we are going through! What a beautiful gift to know this. Thanks for sharing so much of your heart with us!

B#3 always wants me to play the "Uncle Brent song" on the radio (the Glory Defined song from the service). He used to cry when I couldn't do it. (I told him that K-LOVE was in charge of the songs, not Moma.) And, of course, when it does come on, I cry. They always play the Amazing Grace song, too, which has been my song that I cling to since October. I always cry during it, too. On the radio... not so much on my blog... but that's partly because my speakers are usually turned off.:)

And NOW I have a new song to bawl over...! I'm not sure why I hadn't closely noticed the words to it before.

I still have trouble believing it's true... I'm praying for you all the time.

We love you guys! I need to go find a kleenex now.

No way did it start my week of bad. It's an awesome song and it brings such hope and longing for all things good.
We've been listening to the same station here in London, so I knew the song, but had never listened closely until now. Thanks so much for sharing.

Okay sweet one! It didn't start my week off bad, just crying like a baby. I am sitting here with Sandra listening to the song, and have such visions of you and Brent holding hands and running down the streets of gold with angels all around. What a beautiful sight and what a promise we have to look forward to. I know Brent is watching over you, and I know that one day the two of you will be together once again worshipping the Lord.

What a beautiful love letter from your husband.

Mom and Sandra

Oh sweetie. Thanks for sharing your broken heart. What a fitting love song! Brent must be so very, very proud of you...watching you faithfully move forward even though it hurts. Your life truly is a living sacrifice. Thanks for the inspiration!
