Grief and Loss-Examining the pain

Blue angels “When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands and my soul refused to be comforted” (Psalms 77:2)

There is insurmountable shock, and utter disbelief, when a loved one dies; especially if unexpected. The emotion that follows is also unrecognizable, and enormous.

We expect to lose a parent, but not a child, or a sibling–even an acquaintance or a friend is heartbreaking.

It’s always hard, no matter who dies. A part of us, from now on, will always be missing.

Death shatters, and complicates life. But when we place our trust in God, one day we will again be with our loved one.
