Hi my name is Dorretha Greenlee. And the death of a family member on February 4th of this year has left numerous phyical, and more so mental scars, and I do not know how to deal with my dad's death. I have been child abused by him, made to eat resturant pots of food till it was gone, molested by him, never had any friends especially in high school, been embarrased in front of all the classmates in high school, never been to any doctors when I was younger, and I am a christian, but he is the source of my mental illness and for that my mind is totally confused with mixed feelings, of gladness, hate, no remose, angry and a host of so many more, and the bad part is that I said I would not shed a tear for him, and will be glad when he does die, and he and the immediate males on his side of the family that is my brother and both of my boys they are volient like my date and I dread going to or not going to the funeral.

this last year has been so hard Starting with the biggest loss my dad, than great grandmother, and the downward spiral of two of my sisters, one behavioral/ emotionally and one health wise( starving herself). mom and brother drama. The end of a relationship and other everyday things. before this year I thought I was grounded in my faith, I had overcome so much through healing and trust in God. now I feel off course and I am not sure why because God has carried me through so much worse things then this . Just never gone through so much in such a little period of time . And dealing with my dad's death has been hard, every hard. He left behind 4 daughter and a son. and we all still need him sooo much. I love My savior so much and am truly grateful for all he did and does for me. I havejust been so weak. please pray for my family and I. thank you

I'm really thankful that this group was started because I have a lot of scars and for that matter fresh wounds besides the recent loss of my son. I've been a born-again Spirit filled Christian for 31yrs. and I have walked through,sometimes crawled through many valleys in those years, but I'm still moving forward with God. I really need a place where I can be real and seek prayer without being judged or told "I bind the negative spirit" which makes me feel that I can't express what I'm really feeling. This may be a little long the first time,please forgive me but I have a lot of stress going on in my life. I grew up in an alcoholic home with an absent father. He worked on construction away from home a lot. When I was in my early teens, my father started molesting me. He never had "sex" with me but would try to fondle me all the time. The only thing I knew about the Bible then was "children obey your parents" and I desperately thought I needed his affection and approval in my life. Then I met a boy. When I was 14 I let him have his way. When I was 16 I got pregnant by with my oldest son, Jon, who died at the age of 37 in June 09. We got married when I was 16 and Jon was born the month after I turned 17. I had complications at birth which caused Jon to have Cerebral Palsy. There's more spirtual stuff in all that but way to long to go into right now. We had another son, David, who is now 34. We divorced when Jon was 7 and David 2. I was really messed up by then and thought I couldn't live without a man in my life so I had befriended my now, 2nd husband, and when my marriage ended, we were married a month after my divorce was final. He took custody of Jon and I kept David. I knew Jon couldn't handle all the change and he needed stability. Jon was raised from 7 until he moved out by his Christian grandparents. They were great to him for which I'm thankful. My husband and I lost our first child together,Noah, to SIDS 28yrs ago. I'm still married to him,if you want to call it that. We have many,many, unresolved issues. He is a very angry man and has emotionally crippled all of my children, who are now adults. He doesn't physically abuse but he yells a lot and everything is all about him all the time. He has had 4 major surgeries for blockages but continues to smoke. He is depressed and just wants to give up instead of changing his habits to live. All of my adult children are living at home as well as my granddaughter. Only my daughter is working. (We had 2 more children after Noah died,Jason now 27 and Elizabeth 24,who is a single Mom. My youngest son has had surgery on both of his knees in the past 2yrs and suffers from cronic backpain. The other son, David has mental illness. I know this isn't Christ-like, but none of us like to be around my husband because we all feel like we can't do anything right in his eyes. I work full time plus overtime and am also a Children's Minister.
I have pretty much shut down emotionally because it hurts too much to have my family in such a turmoil all the time. It's been much more difficult for me since Jon died because I really can't cry. I do a little but I don't feel. It really bothers me. The Loss of Child group has been my only real outlet for sharing my grief but it's hard for me to burden the group with any of these other losses. I forgave my Dad many years ago. I'm having a hard time forgiving my husband because I forgive and get hurt again and again. I stayed in the marriage and tried to get him to go to counseling but he wouldn't do it. Oh, and my job is very stressful and demanding. Sorry for the length but now you can all pray for me and my family. Blessing to all.

At some time in your life, you have likely asked, ‘Why all the suffering?’ For thousands of years, the human family has suffered greatly from wars, poverty, disasters, crime, injustice, sickness, and death. The past hundred years have seen more suffering than ever before. Will all of this ever end?
The comforting answer is yes, and very soon! God’s Word, the Bible, proclaims: “The wicked one will be no more . . . But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, and they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.” For how long? “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.”—Psalm 37:10, 11, 29.
After God removes wickedness and suffering, the earth will be transformed into a paradise. Then people will be able to live forever in perfect health and happiness. God’s Word foretells: “[God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.”—Revelation 21:4.
In that new world, even dead ones will be brought back to life to share in those blessings: “There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15) That is why Jesus Christ could tell a repentant evildoer who expressed faith in him: “You will be with me in Paradise.”—Luke 23:43.
