After all, I am your big brother.

by Collin Brooks (Carson's older brother) - original post on Facebook

I had a dream about you last night. I could see you and would chase you around town telling you I missed you. I finally got to you and hugged you, pleading for you to come back home.

From that point on, you were just out of reach. I became desperate to catch you, as if I could save you. After all, I am your big brother; I am supposed to protect you.

No matter how hard I strained nor how fast I ran, I couldn't catch you.

This morning, as I reflect on the desperation I felt in my dream, I find comfort knowing your heart was captured by the Lord at a young age.

I may not have been able to catch you in my dream, but I will see you again one day. We will run and play and praise the Lord who offered His life for us and, upon our acceptance of His grace, captured us in His arms forever.

I will wait patiently for that day, all the while joining our family in sharing your story. May the Lord, the only One who can save the souls of the lost and who tirelessly pursues us all, bless us in our endeavors.

I love you.
