I have lost people in my life, too, but never a child. I have watched others who have lost a child and I know it is a heart-wrenching experience. You did a good job of explaining what was going on with you. One misspell was linning instead of lining. You might have created an ending that would have described the silver lining behind the cloud other than using the actual words. I am glad I read your article. Keep writing.
I am glad that your heart was comforted at such a heart wrenching time. God is good and His mercy endures forever. Keep writing.
I can't imagine going through what you went through, and it is a testimony to your faith, and to God's faith, that you can see it how you do. This tore at my heart.

A bit of work on spelling and punctuation would polish this piece up.

Keep writing - you have a wonderful message to share.
Although the title wasn't exactly a lure, I stopped by to read what I knew would be a heartbreaking story. But it wasn't the black cloud that made me weep - it was the part about reconciliation between brothers - the "Silver Lining" aspect -that brought me to tears. A brief, but wonderful story that just a little editing would improve. I loved it...great story & a terrific message in this sad story. God Bless.
