“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)
“Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning” (Psalms 30:5)
Excerpt from book It’s my Time to Grieve by Phoebe Leggett:
A New Direction
What better way to grieve than by recalling happy times shared with a loved one before they passed? Memories can also help sort through a loss in positive ways. But when you realize time spent with your loved is forever gone, feelings of sadness may be overwhelming. However, if this is the case, re-direct your thoughts to happier moments, and hold them close to your heart.
Joining others on the Internet through Facebook and other websites is the rage for sharing words of comfort while remembering a loved one. Reading written expressions from others will be remedial.
It may take years to sort through the heartache of sorrow. But a place to remember a loved one will be therapeutic, as missing them often takes center stage at un-rehearsed moments.
