Shock

Very often I stand in my icon corner and I just wail at God: "He died!!!" 
Like I am in shock and astonished and dismayed and surprised that after all the anticipatory grief, the thing actually happened. 
The fact that it is so jarring has come as a surprise. 
"He died!!!" I cry. 
"He died!!!" 
It is all so wrong.

I'm thinking of you, and praying for you daily. Unimaginable. It is shocking.

Certainly it is wrong, and feels unreal too. The reality of it hits on a day like Thanksgiving, but combined with the unreality, it is sickening.

You are in my prayers.
