Why I felt so compelled to watch at that odd hour of night, though body was weary, I will not know.
What I do know is it etched a mark on my heart.
A mark uncomfortably enlightening,
a mark sending thoughts inspirational erupting each minute of my day,
a mark slightly stinging as salty tears permeate the flesh, the realization that a soul so happy, so over-filled with life, smiling so sweetly is not on this earth any longer,
a mark stinging more when the video stops and I am still here and appreciating my gifted life far less than the one who had it and savored it and moved on from it at such a young age,
a mark deepened further as the Word reached in and cracked open the sweet wound.
"For in our union with Christ He has blessed us by giving us every spiritual blessing in the heavenly world..."
