Ours For A Little While, With Jesus Forever

Today my little brother, David, would have turned 24 years old. It's hard to believe it's been almost 10 years now since he went home to be with Jesus. But at the same time it seems like a lifetime ago. I was thinking about it today and what life would be like if that had not happened....and I truly can not imagine it. Just as at the time I could not imagine life without him, I can not imagine him here in this time. I can not imagine what kind of person he would be or even who I would be today because losing him and going through that changed my life and my family so much. I'm still thankful to God for bringing us through and that he continues to sustain us.

I've been working on a long well thought out post for the last...ohhh...two years about him and going through that time of loss. It's still not quite complete. Maybe it never will be, because from year to year what I would say changes and I just keep editing... But I decided that even without all the perfect words and "things I learned" I still wanted to say that I love him and remember him today, on his birthday, and always. I still see him from time to time in my dreams, there like he always was - he never seems to know that he's not supposed to be there. I'm glad I'll get to see him for real in heaven some day. Until then these are a couple of my favorite pictures....

Happy Birthday David. I'm sure it's a beautiful day in heaven!

Your Big Sis


  1. You made me cry!

  2. Sorry! Don't worry you're not alone :)

  3. I love you David, when I look into my sons eyes, I can't imagine. I am proud of you Sarah and the whole family. You honor David everyday that you get up and make an impact in this world. JP

  4. I only know of David from talking to you after my sister died, but seeing his face, his personality in these pictures brings it all together for me. I love how you honor him. Prayers to you always, Sarah. Dawn
