We grieve because we love.
If we did not love, our heart would not be broken by the death of one we love. Grief is often referred to as a journey. The journey begins when one we love dies. Though the journey does not come with a precise roadmap, along the way we find answers to some of the most difficult questions of life and death through prayer, introspection, and soul-searching. We near the end of the journey when we move beyond our grief toward hope and new life.
I hope that you will allow me to serve as your guide and walk beside you on your journey through grief. This is a place for your personal comfort, encouragement, and support as you encounter many of the practical, spiritual, and emotional challenges of grief. My hope is that you will use the books, blogs, daily devotionals, prayers, and grief group resources to lead you toward renewed hope, recovered love, and belief in the future.
“For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
