The previous post was more a rhetorical question rather than a real one.

So please let me explain.

1) I don’t think that our children are cursed.

2) That post is a lament.    

Maybe the post was done in haste.  I don’t know.  But it did make a number of people uncomfortable.  It was real, honest and blunt.  It was posted after a particularly difficult time of grief from one of our children.  But please don’t mistake this explaination as an apology.

I KNOW that things will get better different but at this point my grief comes and goes.  And I believe that those who grieve should be given a large allowance to vent.  Sometimes those who are grieving need to hear the gospel.  Sometimes they need to hear the groans.

As CS Lewis writes, “No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear”.
 
I think Z, J and lil Z are blessed too.  They have a good community.
 
I don’t think our kids are cursed.  I think it sucks that they have lost something so good in Marisa.

Peace,

MdH
