No guilt in life, no fear in death,This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand:
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.


i just need to leaves these words here. As a reminder to myself on the hard days (and the not as hard), that Jesus commands my destiny. That there was not a minute of my son’s life that wasn’t written into his story and not a minute taken away from what God intended for him. That Jesus was there with him from the very first moment and cry, to the very last breath and when his heart stopped beating. And that there is nothing, nothing, that could ever deny George Mason his place in eternity with his Savior.  

We celebrate today because Jesus is alive. And because my son is made new because of that very death and resurrection. I know that but sometimes I need the words of much wiser men and women to remind me.
