How To Handle Children's Objections to a Widow's Remarriage

Q. My husband died over a year ago, and I’ve just started to date. I find myself wondering how my grown children will react if I actually meet someone and want to marry again. What are the possible snags, and what can I do to smooth the way?

A new man is welcomed in most…

While reading the news around the world, I came across an article about how people died in a fire in a elderly home. They found 17 bodies in the home....Oh my painful heart !

When I read things like this it teaches me to remain close to my family and friends because unexpected events befall us all - Ecc 9:11.

The Car Accident: Going back in time to comfort a friend who is the cause of death

My mother and I ran into an ex coworker who stated she fell asleep at the wheel and killed her husband and child..... I was not sure what to say and my mother was lost for words. All my mother could say is I am so sorry.....Today, I think about her. Is she okay? Was she able to grieve ? Is she still grieving? I do not know because our familes did not keep in touch... If I could go back in time and tell her that soon God will take away our tears, pain and death, I would - Revelation…

How To Comfort When a Pet Dies

Pets share a special place in our lives and become a member of the family. They’re good for us, bringing pleasure, companionship, comfort, and love. So it should be no surprise that when they die, we grieve for them.

There was a time when pet owners got little support after their pet’s death. It was highly unlikely…

Hope

I was watching a preview of a spiritual movie that will be coming out next month. It is a about a man with a great job and good family. Then all of the sudden he loses his job and gets terminally ill. There is even death that hits his immediate family.

This can prove true in our lives...disaster can hit like a ton of bricks and it has...That's why we need Hope...Hope that things will get better. - Hebrews 11:1

Being A Friend In Need

Last night I visited a widow who is still very much grieving over her husband's death. Although she talks about her husband every time I visit her, I listen. She cries .. I listen. The point is that we need to recognize the trauma that each of us go through and try to understand the effects of the trauma.....She did not want any advice. She wanted me to listen and that is what a true friend does -" A true friend loves at all times"- Proverbs 17:17

One last beautiful day

It has been one month today since I was "normal". Exactly one month ago we were working side by side, picking up, taking care of our fur babies, making breakfast, then doing lots of yard work. I can't believe it was that long ago. I am in this horrible time warp where time as it used to be doesn't exist any longer. It seems like it was yesterday.  What a great day it was! I suppose I should be more thankful that it was such a great day.  I suppose in time, I will cherish this day. Right now…

Children and Funerals

When I was a child, I remember going to funerals and no one ever explaining to me what was going on. I saw a body in a casket and everyone crying...At times some would get a little more overboard with their crying...I think they felt guilty. I would stare at them with sadness.

I think it is so crucial that folks be open and honest with their children. Telling children God took the person paints the picture that God is cruel ( at least it did in my mind).Some may weigh the…

45 and lost - only 9 years they went by so fast

Richard was so full of life. He passed on 11/4/15 after 4 mos of battling stomach cancer.  WHY didn't I push him more years before to get checked more thoroughly at the DR.  I said to him years before that he didn't look right.  He jokingly replied "oh well maybe I am dying."  Well sadly he was right.  I told him for years that sleeping 12 hours a day was not normal and I thought he was just depressed.  We were so busy working and just trying to make it in life that we missed the fact that…

Honoring Our Loved Ones though Love and Friendship

When a parent, spouse, sibling, child, or friend dies, we grieve for our loss. As we continue to mourn, we wonder if we will ever find the love, companionship, or support that is now lost. While our loved one is physically gone, we cherish the memories of our time together. As the weeks and months pass, we may find ourselves wanting to make new…
