Letter from South Carolina
When we were going through the hearings in court, I remember sitting there listening to the details of our son’s attack, and the mental images it produced, were sometimes more than I could bear. There were times I had to walk out of that court room and get away from everyone and just take a moment to breathe and pray for… something, anything to get through it.
In my nightmares, which happened often, I would see my son getting beaten by those boys, I would hear him call out for help, and while I would try to run to him, I could just never reach him… but I never stopped trying to get to him. He was my boy and he needed me… and as a parent… my instincts to rescue him and protect were overwhelming and constant.
Then I would wake up in tears… sit alone in the quiet of night… a weep. It was then, in those times of quiet, I remember the thought occurring to me that God had a son as well, and He literally saw what happened to His Son. He watched Him get beaten unmercifully and eventually be killed.
I remember a part of scripture where Jesus questioned why God had forsaken Him. Why would God look the other way as His Son called out to Him in pain? While I know that God cannot look on sin, and Jesus took all of the sins of the world on himself, as a parent, I can’t help but think that maybe, just maybe, had God not turned His head away, that He may not have been able to stand watching what was happening anymore without rescuing his Son and stopping the horrific act. The bible states that when Stephen was being stoned to death, that the heavens opened up and he saw Jesus standing at the right hand of the Father.
I recall times when my husband and I would sit on the porch and watch the boys play in the yard, if one of them fell and cried, my husband and I would immediately jump up and stand, waiting to see if our son was ok. When Jesus saw Stephen getting stoned to death, He stood…….one of His children was in distress. Just like a parent, isn’t it?! Throughout the bible, God is described as our Father… a perfect Father… and one who understands our grief.
While going through that with our son, I knew God understood our pain… literally, and that He would not allow us to go through that alone. As a parent, God knew exactly how my husband and I were feeling… because He had been there Himself… with His Only Son. As a result of that thought occurring to me, it made the sacrifice of His Son, take on a whole new perspective for me.
God sacrificed His Only Son for another one of His children… me. This time of year, as I see that baby laying in a manger, I can’t help but cry knowing what His ultimate goal is, and why… and for whom. I don’t know how God did it… as a parent… I can’t fathom watching my son be beaten and not stopping it (and He could have stopped it)… but I am humbly grateful that He didn’t.
When I look at the hands of that little baby in that wooden manger, I can’t help but also see those same hands with nails in them, holding him onto a wooden cross. Tears fill my eyes, my heart breaks, and as a parent, I just want to hold that baby and keep Him safe… but I know He is here… for my sake.
No matter what happens in my life, I know at the end of my life, I will be given a blessing of having a life that I could never have here on Earth… a life with no pain, no tears, no goodbyes and no more hate… all because of that little baby laying in a manger.
So, this Christmas season, please remember the incredible gift that was given to us all, even before we were born… and when you look at that little baby laying in the manger, remember the reason He came here… His sole reason for being born…YOU. We love you all so dearly and we hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas. C***** is doing wonderful, he is healthy, happy and following the path God has set before him. Thank you for your prayers and continue praying. God is still working His plan in all of our lives. (Mama Strange)
