Carly Marie’s prompt for today for our Capture Your Grief journey is season.
What season do I associate Georgie with?
When I think of Georgie the expression “tender shoot” from Isaiah 53:2 comes to mind: “He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.” The verse is a prophecy and refers to Jesus. But I do think God brings it to my mind as a comfort, as a reminder of the One who died as a Son so I know I have the understanding of the Father.
So for me, Georgie is associated with spring. He was young when he passed away, like a wee little lamb. My wee lamb, my sweet boy, my fragile yet so strong in the spirit fighter.
I do have this image of him last spring. He was tired and he was sleeping while we went to visit a local farm. For some reason, this image is very precious to me as is it one of the very few I have of him out, free of wires and medical devices.
