let nothing be wasted

thoughts on grief and the goodness of God


i am the wife to an amazing man and the mom to 4 children… 3 of whom i hold in my arms, and one that Jesus holds in his. my walk through the valley of the shadow of death after suddenly losing my 6 year old son has brought me into the beautiful presence of Jesus. these are my reflections on how intense, stifling¬†pain and the overwhelming¬†goodness of God can co-exist. light is so much more powerful in the contrast of darkness.

    Oh Stephanie, I read your blogs and the tears flow like a river. You have such a beautiful way of sharing your heart and family and the brief, precious moments you had with Mason.
    I met you at reality after service last week and you gave me your address so that I could share it with Joni and Friends. Mason is leaving quite a legacy and for his birthday the present of his name on the legacy wall at the foundation will be helping 5 underprivileged children receive wheelchairs for the first time in their lives. They will be given the gift of freedom of which there is no price.
    I’m holding your family up in prayer as each day brings up memories of your darling little Mason and there is nothing to do but embrace them and wrap them in tears.
    I pray I can spend more time with you in our future. You have blessed me beyond words and if there is anything I can do to help you please just let me know. Godspeed sweet one. …love, Cindy Feltes
