7 Tips to Make It Easier to Talk to the Bereaved

Q. I recently spotted an acquaintance walking down the street and ducked into a store. His wife had died, and I didn't want him to see me because I didn't know what to say. I felt like a coward. Why is it so difficult to talk to someone in this situation?

The Harvest of Grief

My journey of grief and healing may be different from many others; in fact, I'm certain it is. (After all, one person's heartbreak can only be individual - not universal). After losing three friends to cancer over the last decade, my most recent and deepest loss was that of a friend of 20 years, whom I called sister. She transitioned from her earthly battle to Heaven's reward on July 19, 2013. She was the only one who understood intimately my own suffering and labored with me as we faced… Continue

Getting Better

Getting Better

I’m getting better at getting on with my life,

But it’s not easy since I lost  my wife.

I’m getting better at getting along, until I hear

an old sad song, then I start wondering…

What went wrong?

I’m getting better at writing a poem,

But not with the fact of being alone.

I just thank God that I’m getting better

at getting better.

Why Is It So Hard to Ask for Help?

A family in my neighborhood has been quietly struggling for months. The mom has a stubborn virus that is taking a long time to heal and the dad is shopping, cooking, cleaning, and ensuring his kids get wherever they need to go. When he finally shared his family’s situation, neighbors quickly offered to prepare meals. I asked him why he didn’t ask for…

We are all affected by the enemy death. No matter how hard we try to run and make ourselves look ageless, it is going to catch up with us. However, there is someone that can help us escape..."As the last enemy, death is brought to nothing... (1 Corinthians 15:26)

Sad Reminders

Grief is not something that magically disappears.  As long as love existed for the person, then grief will always be present.  The intensity and the power of the grief to dictate our day may lessen, but the sadness will always remain, especially if tapped into.

Reminders of the loss are always present.  Some reminders can bring a smile to our face, while others sometime can bring a frown.   Reminders can be simple calendar dates of importance such as holidays or anniversaries, but…

A real hope for being united with your dead loved ones....

(John 5:28, 29) Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.

(Acts 24:15) And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.

What a wonderful promise from our…
