I must confess...I met someone.
Well, he found me, or at least found his way into my heart. We haven't ever met and now we won't until I die. His name is Kaden Vierra and he moved into his new permanent home in Heaven today at 10:58 a.m. Kaden was 2 1/2 years old. His mommy, daddy, big brother, and big sisters, along with family, friends, and lots of cyber friends, will miss him. Please pray for his family. http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/kadenvierra
There's this weird phenomenon in cyber world...you meet people emotionally that you may never meet physically. You feel to some degree what they feel and even cry or laugh with them, never knowing them face to face. I know you know what I am talking about, many of "you", because you are here reading my ramblings, the rantings and ramblings of a mom of a little boy who made his way into your hearts.
Well, in a way, I think cyber world is an example of how the Body of Christ is supposed to be connected. We can come together in prayer, on our faces before God, seeking His will and healing for people we have never met. Kaden's life drew people to their knees before God. I know Noah's did, as well. There are many babies, born and unborn, toddlers, children, regardless of age, who have allowed their lives to reflect God's goodness and mercy. Many people might ask "How is the death of a child good?" but I ask "How has your life, all these years, reflected God?" Some of the mightiest men and women of God are less than 3 feet tall. I know there are taller ones, but regardless of the number of our days, no, not our days, but the days given us, perhaps months or even years, are we aspiring for mediocre or truly glorious?
I just can't live life thinking it's for nothing! God is real, Heaven is His home, and He made a way for ANYONE to live there through His gracious gift of Christ's death on the cross. That's what Easter's about...but that's another post.
Happy eternity, Kaden, I'll miss your updates, Monkeyboy! Say "HI" to Noah for me. Ade, xoxox
