What about a woman that was a saint most of her life and went thru a divorce, and emotionally lost it, and commited suicide. Wouldn't god fogive her?
Yes Kathy, because she is under grace. If she had at any time accepted Christ as her lord, I believe she is with him even now. I personally don't believe people are in their "right mind" when they commit suicide. The bible says that the only unforgivable sin is to deny christ. I am sorry I can't tell you where it is quoted but I promise it is. It is so sad especially for the loved ones left behind but I believe the lord takes them into his grace and loves them because they are wounded and just gave up. That is my opinion.
I am part of a group called "My friend community". It is a suicide awareness group and we hold classes and have professional people in the community teach them etc and hold fund raisers to get the word out for signs of suicide possibilities. Suicide is the most preventable death in this country and so many people do it. It is really high in the young and the old.
Be at peace for your friend.
I am so sorry your friend made this choice but there is nothing for anyone to be concerned with in regards to her. She is at peace. suep
Small changes in your home can assist you in small changes in and through grief.

The loss of my husband at an early age propelled me to use interior redesign to help assist others in grief.. Some ideas that you may find helpful can be found on Blogger by going to SusanWReynolds or at revivalredesign.blogspot.com

All input in what works or worked for you appreciated. Blessings swr
I am in agreement with the best book to read is the Bible. It is the only book that has been around for "neons" yet it's words are not outdated but current and applicable to the conditions we are living under in this wicked system of things. -Revelation 12:9.

The Bible give us sound advice as to the way we should live in order to avoid unnecessary emotional trama and pain. God knows that mankind can not guide his own foot-step.- we tend to always get it wrong. Eccl. 8:9.

The Bible can anwer any quesitons that may come to mind --- take your time and read it....you would be amazed at how it can even tell you how to preserve your friends with your fellow-man / neighbor.
After the loss of my son I found my self attending church more often and enjoy reading John Edwards book called One Last Time John is a psychic medium that speaks to those we have loved and lost.
Since the death of my mom on July 15, 2009 and the death of my younger sister on November 9, 2005 I have found the book "Unattended Sorrow" by Stephen Levine to be a most helpful addition to other materials on how to grieve the loss of a loved one. Perhaps someone else will find this a helpful resource as well.

There is an organization called GriefShare that has been a blessing to me. It helped me when I felt like I was going crazy with my grief.
There are meetings all over the US and in some other countries as well.
Griefshare can be found at www.griefshare.org.
I have attended 2 - 13 week sessions and was so grateful to be with others who were looking for ways to cope with their grief as I had been.
The empathy, encouragement, understanding and comfort in sharing with people who are living with losses and seeking help brings amazing strength to work through the pain of the loss.
The cost was minimal - just the cost of a workbook and we met once a week for about 13 weeks.
They'll also send a daily email of encouragement for a full year if you choose to sign up for it at their website.
This was such a blessing for me and I hope it will help you too.

The one book that has always help me to cope with pain and grief is gods word the bible. The bible is a excellent source of encouragment. Many people dont take time out to open the bible and see what is says. Well when you do believe me there are many things to read about that can be very encouraging. The bible explains why we get sick, why we die, what happens to us when we die, and the most comforting thing to know is that it explains how there will be a resurrection of the righteous and the unrighteous. Many find that to be very comforting to know. I really do look forward to this because I have lost both of my grandmom's to death and one of my grandfather's. I look forward to seeing them again real soon. Here are a few passages in the bible that can provide comfort when depress: (Revelation 21:3,4 Isaiah 33:24 John 5:28,29 Acts 24:15.
If you ever contact with Jehovahs Witnesses fill free to ask them for and books or brochures they may have regarding death.
