Losing Our Loved Ones Is Not Forever

Losing our loved ones is a painful experience, whether it is a spouse, parent, child or even a beloved pet.  There are many reasons to rejoice when someone we are close to goes on to heaven.  Like that line in that poem, Miss Me But Let Me Go, it says why cry for a soul set free.   It is that reassurance that the person we cherished on earth is safe and happy in heaven that helps us through the grief of losing them from our life.

Losing Our Loved Ones Causes Sadness But …

Losing our loved ones, though, is not forever.  Of course, we grieve the loss from our life, but knowing that our loss is not forever, helps us to work through that grief more effectively.  If the person or pet that you lost was part of your daily routine, it generally takes longer to adapt your life without them.  No doubt you will still miss them, but I know for me, knowing someday I will be with my loved ones again keeps me going.  This song by Steven Curtis Chapman was written as the result of his grandmother dying, but it applies to anyone that has gone before you to heaven.

SEE YOU IN A LITTLE WHILE

The Glorious Unfolding Steven Curtis Chapman

The Glorious UnfoldingBy Steven Curtis Chapman / Reunion RecordsAfter seven years Chapman is back with an album of original songs—and a message about God’s glory and majesty. Includes “Love, Take Me Over”; “Something Beautiful”; “Take Another Step”; “A Little More Time to Love”; “See You in a Little While”; “Michael and Maria”; “Only One and Only You”; “Together”; “Sound of Your Voice”; “Feet of Jesus”; and the title track.

Losing Our Loved Ones Is Just For A Little While

The song says “See You In A Little While.”  Steven Curtis Chapman was inspired to write this song as he spent time with his grandmother hours before she passed on.  He didn’t say goodbye, but rather that he would see her in a little while.  Below is an interview with him explaining that last visit with her.

I found this song after I wrote, Until Heaven Then My Friend, and it so touched me as it was a beautiful way to say that it is not goodbye forever, but just until heaven, when we see them again.  I also thought it so neat that he asked his grandmother to deliver a message to his daughter that had died a while ago.  When we take our last breath on earth, our body dies, but our spirit lives on and travels to heaven where, yes, messages can be delivered to those loved ones that have gone before.  Until writing, Until Heaven Then My Friend, I hadn’t really thought about that.
