|The AT in North Georgia (April 2012)|
Here are just a few quotes from the book....
From someone he met along the trail... When we stopped going to church and started being the church, something wonderful happened.
Memories of our lost ones will always be with us, but the acute, overwhelming anguish will lesson at some point. We do find life on the other side of grief. I left the shackles of my grief in a puddle of tears on top of Eph's Mountain three weeks before.

Many folks remain stuck in grief because they can't comprehend why God would take their loved ones. We get angry with God and question why He would subject us to such terrible loss. But if it were up to us, when would we ever allow God to take our son or daughter or spouse? The answer, of course, is that we would never choose it. We don't won't to die, and we don't won't our loved ones to die.
Each of us has a small slice of measured time, inserted here between eternity past and a never-ending hereafter. From the moment of your birth, death becomes inevitable. Your little slice of time is so fleeting. Whether you live on this planet ten years or eighty is insignificant to God. What is significant is your choice of paths that will lead you to the end of your time here.
