Wise Words ...

... from Brother Tobias of In a Godward Direction, commenting here on Scotty's death:

"The cost of love is pain."

Ain't it the truth?


Blogger Catherine said...

Yes, wise words indeed.

I saw that comment... and yes, Tobias is so wise. Those words have hovered around me since I read them.

And my prayers stay with you Lisa.

CS LEwis said something similar, about Joyce:
The pain I feel now is the happiness I had before. That's the deal.

Thanks, y'all.
And, IT, I think Tobias is even more articulate and poetic than Lewis. Does that make me a heretic? ;-)

It makes you theologically competent.

How are you doing, my dear friend?

I've been cuddling and playing with my boys a lot more, the last couple of days.

We're thinking of you, Lisa! Hope you are doing well.

I agree, Tobias is better. Always.

I know you aren't wanting to talk, right now, Lisa.

Just wanted to let you know - we're all still here.

Thanks to all of you. And especially to you, Mark: You're right; I just have not been able to talk about "It." I thought I might blog about it tonight, but I just couldn't. So I'm blogging about other stuff ... waiting 'til I can talk about that last day with Scotty.
Hug your critters close. Love them deeply.
