but Ava knew Jesus

-with prayers for family of Ava Dieleman


why four-year-olds die?

life brittle as frosted grass

bleak october day

God listens to our lament

frozen tears in his bottle



“Surely the people are grass.
The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8

    without answers
    the wind whispers in the rain
    autumn lullaby

    Heartfelt sympathy for your loss. Georgia
