See You In A Little While

Since the beginning of the year, it seems I have attended funeral after funeral. My heart breaks for the families because I know the feeling of loss they are experiencing. The pain is almost more than you can bear.

Many of you know, I lost my Mom to cancer in 2009. Although I may not mention it as much, there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of her. Oh how I wish I could pick up the phone and call her and hear her sweet voice.

Mom continues to influence my life, not just in the memories I have of her but also by the words she wrote in her Bibles, books and her journals.

I recently found this in the front of one of her Bibles. “Lord, as I gaze intently into your Word, reveal the things in my life that need to be changed. Then grant me the grace to make those changes, so I can live more fully to your glory! Amen”

See You In A Little While
What a legacy Mom has left for her family. She pointed us to Christ while she was living but she continues to point us to Christ even in her death. What a blessing!

This is another song from Steven Curtis Chapman’s latest album. It’s entitled, See You In A Little While. He wrote this song after losing his grandmother and if you know their family story, three years ago, they also lost their daughter.

Mom, I”ll see you in a little while and I can’t wait!


I hold your hand and watch as the sun slowly fades
Far in the distance the Father is calling your name
And it’s time for you to go home
And everything in me wants to hold on
But I’m letting you go with this goodbye kiss and this promise

I’ll see you in a little while
I’ll see you in a little while
It won’t be too long now
We’ll see it on the other side
The wait was only the blink of an eye
So I’m not gonna say goodbye
‘Cause I’ll see you in a little while

And just one more thing before I let you go
Please tell my little girl I love her
Though I’m sure she already knows
And ask the Father to please tell the Son
That we’re ready and waiting for Him to come

I’ll see you in a little while
I’ll see you in a little while
It won’t be too long now
We’ll see it on the other side
The wait was only the blink of an eye
So I’m not gonna say goodbye
‘Cause I’ll see you in a little while

Maybe you’ll teach me all the songs they sing in heaven
Maybe you’ll show me how you can fly
And I’ll hear you laugh again
And we won’t remember when
We were not together and this time it’s forever

I’ll see you in a little while
I’ll see you in a little while
It won’t be too long now
We’ll see it on the other side
The wait was only the blink of an eye
So I’m not gonna say goodbye
‘Cause I’ll see you in a little while
I’m gonna see you in a little while

Have a blessed Sunday!

  1. Cyndi – How timely that you posted this song. I just listened to it several times yesterday because I was missing my brother. Two years ago he took his own life and there isn’t a day that I don’t miss him terribly.

  2. Beautiful! I hadn’t heard this one before… just attended a funeral a couple weeks ago. Our sons little classmates Mommy had a baby boy and then 4 days later, the Mommy totally unexpectedly and suddenly passed away. It was sooo sad ;( My heart cries for these sweet lil boys and their Daddy. So thankful Heaven is real and its a prepared place…. looking forward to that glorious day! Hugs as you miss your own dear Mom, Cyndi 🙂

  3. What a beautiful song, I hadn’t heard it before. It is a sweet balm to the heart of all of us who have lost someone we love. Thank you so much for sharing it.

  4. Thank you for sharing from your heart. This morning I read about the Wisdom in Exodus and in Proverbs; that God gives His wisdom as a skill set and through wisdom, He teaches us to live the life we have been given. I wanted to share it with our adult children this morning, but always wonder if I am going to be “preachy”….I prayed for God to show me if I could just speak a word of His into their lives – if that is not crossing some boundary in their adult living. Your sharing this has been a confirmation that words of encouragement from the Lord through a mom are ok at any age. God bless you <3

  5. Cyndi, I think it is wonderful that you have these things as a reminder of your mom and how she continues to influence you. I’m sure as she was making her notes in her Bible, she didn’t realize how they would one day be such a treasure to you. 🙂 Thank you for sharing and many blessings to you and your family.

  6. Cyndi,
    Thanks so much for sharing stories about your mom. My mom will have been gone only one year on March 11th and I think of her so many times every day, wanting to pick up the phone and tell her something. And to Laura who commented about sharing things with your grown children, I was glad to see that someone else struggles with feeling “preachy”.
