Comfort Those With Anxiety

May we comfort those with anxiety & depression issues that have resulted from losing a love one....( 1Thess 5:11)...

1)Support & have empathy

2) Learn about it ( PTSD for example)

3) Continue to comfort our family and friends

We all have a fine line between actually experiencing this ourselves..

My heart goes out to those who continue to struggle with this

Cry If You Need To

Some may say to men  " Don 't Cry" In some cultures, its considered unmanly to cry... Well, even Jesus cried ( John 11:33). He was the greatest man who ever lived! Crying is a normal part of grieving and we should cry if we need to do so. Holding this in is very harmful.

Memorable Death

He suffered so much for much so we can have everlasting life. I watched a movie last night that reminded me of such. He was resurrected on the 3rd day. It was sad that people were so cruel but he knew it had to be done..(Matthew 28:1-15)

Ex Wife Suicide

Married for 30 years. Divorced for 2 1/2 years. Tried to reconcile, but my ex wife cut off all communication. She had Bi Polar disorder and we went through many hospitalizations. I believe she wouldn't have killed herself if I was still living with her. No note left. No warning signs noticed by our grown daughter. Suicide was ruled after a medical examiner's investigation. Wish I could have been there to talk her out of it. Am devastated.

Wide Circle of Friends a Lifesaver for Widows

Q. I’m doing OK since my husband died, except for the loneliness. It’s so hard to deal with. I wonder how others manage, and what seems to work best. Your advice?

My dictionary defines “lonely” as “without companions” or “solitary,” and notes that the first recorded use of the word…

Soon Forgotten....

 Research shows that folks are very supportive in the days after the death of a love one but are soon forgotten after. Marking our calendars of the anniversary of their death may help us keep our friends and love ones in mind... That is when we need support the most.....(James 1:27)

What Not To Say to the Bereaved

You’ve heard it before: It is important to make contact with the bereaved and acknowledge their loss. And yet many people stay away, fearing they will say the wrong thing – and, their fears are well-founded.

How To Be a Supportive Listener

A week after my friend’s baby died, her mother-in-law appeared at her door. My friend told her she wasn’t up for a visit, but her mother-in-law assured her she would just sit and keep her company. And that’s what she did. She sat quietly in a chair near my friend. After a while, she fixed them some tea. My friend now…
