And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Revelation 21:4 KJV
What can I write?
There are no words that will feel “right”.
Everything seems blurry…
A loving mother and a doting father shook with sobs of unimaginable grief & pain, surrounded by grandmothers & grandfathers grieving deeply, both for their children losing their boy, and for the Tenney-shaped holes instantly left behind in their hearts, as they watched him cross over…
Two sisters, Sylvia & I, tears flowing, hurting deeper than we knew we could, looking into Ashley’s eyes, knowing what just happened, knowing how much it instantly changed all of us…
Early yesterday evening, little Tenney was freed from his cancer and his pain as he ran into the arms of Jesus.
We know he’s in a better place.
We know he’s pain-free.
But we aren’t.
We’re hurting, all of us, each grieving in our own way, individually, yet together.
We miss him.
We wish his healing had come this side of heaven, or better yet, that his cancer had never happened.
But it did.
And we’re left here, not to move on, but to carry on.
We seek, and we find, comfort, in the only One who can provide it in times like these…
Leaning on the everlasting arms…
And we thank you for your prayers.
