Good Grief

Many times I have sent the booklet, Good Grief, to friends who are going through the loss of a loved one.

Today, I decided it was time for me to read it for my own grief, not as a counselor, but as one who is experiencing the loss.

About 18 months ago, I wrote about grief (read here) after watching a couple of friends go through the loss of loved ones.

Today I read that post for myself. I ended that post with these words:

I don't know that kind of sorrow and grief,
but I know our Lord does.
And He cares. And He comforts.

That I do know.

Today, I do know the sorrow and grief. And He still cares. And he still comforts. That I do know.
