To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances;
to seek Him, the greatest adventure;
to find Him, the greatest human achievement.

Like a sunset dying with the rising of the moon

Just now I thought I would try to listen to "Gone Too Soon" again. Since normally I just can't listen to it.

Well, I didn't make it past the first verse.

It hurts too much. 10 months it's almost been, yet it hurts too much.

The ache sort of wells up inside me and I feel it in my throat....

and the tears form hot and thick in my eyes, roll down my cheeks....

It just hurts too much.

Memories of June, July come flooding back.

Of images and pictures everywhere, and TV specials, of ugly rumors in the tabloids, and heartbreaking scenes from across the globe.

It just hurts too, too much.

Of candles and prayers and tributes, of flowers and teddy bears....of tears and smiles, dancing and singing, arm-in-arm.....

Of 3 little children on a stage, fighting back tears...

Oh, God!

How it hurts.

My heart breaks and bleeds once more.

And I realize that....this will never go away. Not really.

What have we lost? Oh, oh, oh................

It hurts too much.

And so with tear-streaked face I write -

Like a comet blazing 'cross the evening sky

Gone too soon

I love you, Michael. The world misses you. <3
