Thoughts about my Grandson
Remembering Levi

My grandson's life on this earth was very brief, but truly blessed by God. For during his transient day in the hospital, the only earthly home he would have, all he ever knew was love. Intense, pure Garden-of-Eden love. The bedrock love of a Mom and Dad so unyielding and ferociously-strong in its eternal supremacy that it briefly pushed back the Dark and kept him alive when he should not have been, allowing them a temporary oasis together as a family, though ephemeral as a rainbow. A full lifetime of love, in all its many seasons, urgently compressed in a few, fleeting hours...so powerfully-overwhelming there is an aching gasp as it tightly-clutches the heart and shakes the soul to its very foundation as it extracts the price of a granted prayer that is Omnisciently limited. All the while fully willing to exchange their lives for his if only God will change His unchangeable mind. The love of a supportive family who treasured a warm, welcoming place for him in their hearts and lives...and a "Pa" who had a forever welcoming spot on his knee...

In a very selfish manner, I have thought this past week of the many things he and I would have shared...and now parks, parades, pancakes, and Puff-the-Magic-Dragon will have to wait until we are together in Heaven. He will not know the thrilling, ethereal beauty of God's earth and all the pure goodness therein...but neither will he ever know the hardness and, too often, the meanness of life...the cruel underbelly of fallen mankind that can so eagerly beguile and oftentimes gleefully splinter a tender soul. For the latter I am grateful...

Levi Cole came into this world knowing only love...nothing else. And by the grace of God, that is all he knew when he left it. Through all the anxious, worried frenzy going on all around him, he was unfailingly wrapped in the peaceful arms of soul-deep, forever abiding love. It was the complete fullness of his earthly experience before winging his way back to Heaven, so secure in that love that he left a stardust trail of it in his wake. And that's the hard part for those of us still here, that he left so much of that love behind...
