Comforting Thought -Re: Our Love Ones

“Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning, And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life. (Isaiah 26:19)

See Yourself when all is new

See Yourself When All Is New      ( Revelation 21:1-5 )

  Just see yourself, just see me too; Just see us all in a world that is new.

 Think how you’ll feel, how it will be, To live in peace, to be truly free.

 No evil one will then prevail; Rule by our God cannot ever fail.

The time will have come for a new earthly start, The song of our praises will pour out from our heart:

(CHORUS) “Jehovah our God, how well you have done! All things are…

Poem " Do not Stand at My Grave and Weep" by Mary Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there - I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints in snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
As you awake with morning's hush
I am the swift-up-flinging rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there - I did not die.

---John 5:28,29

Loss is Temporary for Theists

Grief Counseling Program

One of the sad realities of life is loss.  Loss is as much part of our existence as happiness.  We need to fully be aware of that as we fully hope to understand the nature of our temporal existence on earth.

Whatever we gain on earth, can be lost.  From the smallest trinket to the most important person in our world.  Like a thief in the night, material things can be snatched…

Letting Go

I sat staring out the window, into the darkness,

Searching for some understanding, some peace of mind.

Oh, how I long for the comfort I once felt, the feeling of belonging,

And the tranquility in life, that I now cannot find.

I feel empty inside, like a part of me is now missing,

Or maybe has even died.

And with this anguish burning from deep with in my soul,

It's these bitter, angry tears that I cry.

The sudden realization that there is nothing I can do,… Continue

Famous People vs Depression & Suicide

It's hard to believe that many famous people have died due to depression. They mask it so well. They laugh but they are really hurting inside.... Money and fame does not bring happiness....(Psalms 94:14)

Interesting about Support Systems -Depression

----“The Age of Melancholy?”, Dr. Gerald Klerman explains: “The three most common social support systems have been the family, the church, and the immediate neighborhood. . . . It is a characteristic of the present time that all three of those social support systems are in various degrees of disarray.”

 However, there is someone that we can always count on(Psalms 34:18)

Talk to Someone

Talk to Someone

My friend and I just had a chat, about nothing at all just this and that.

Would it have helped for her to know that my mind was about to blow?

With all the feelings pent-up inside she couldn’t see what I tried to hide.

Who could have known or who would have guessed that I was so damned

depressed?

I could  laugh and put on a smile, but hurt down inside all the while.

But sometimes it helps to…

Well, sitting here watching the news. Feel very alone tonight. Do not always feel this way. Some nights I am good. Friday night my granddaughter is spending the night with me. Looking forward to that. Still trying to find the new normal for me. I am told this may take awhile to find a new normal for me without Terry.

Losing Grandma

Academy of Grief Counseling

I just read a great article on here about how a loss affects the family.  We are just in the first month of suddenly losing my grandmother.

The shock right now is the biggest thing.  She was completely fine and then she was gone.  There was no illness, no time to come to acceptance.  In fact, the previous weekend, she cooked Sunday dinner, like she always…

How to Help a Bereaved Family

The death of a family member is more than painful; the absence of a parent or a child throws the entire family out of kilter. Roles are changed, schedules must be realigned, and financial circumstances may be greatly altered. The middle child may now be the youngest, or the eldest child may become an only child.…

Pet Loss Grief

One type of grief that is not recognized as much as needed is the loss of a pet.  People grieve over the losses of pets all the time and  yet it is considered trivial.

Common responses include, "it was only a pet" or "at least it was not a family member".  The reality is, to many a pet is more than a pet but a family member!  Pets play pivotal roles in companionship and friendship.  The value of whether sentient or not plays no role in the attachment.

For example, a elderly…
