Grief

Here Am I. Send Me! – (How to Love the Grieving at Christmas)

I first saw Jodi’s blog through a friend of mine on Facebook. Jodi is a widow, like me. Her words are often a comfort to me and today’s post was perfect. I thought I was doing okay this holiday season, but tonight after Advent worship, I realized I’m not. Please read Jodi’s post about How to Love the Grieving at Christmas. Like I said, it’s perfect.

Well if you’re still with me now, I’ll tell you how I’m doing. I’m struggling. I spent ten days with family and friends celebrating my nephew’s wedding in Colorado. Five days in Colorado and 5 days in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. It was a lovely time with a lot of laughter and a few tears. The wedding was beautiful in… Read more »
