Violet how are you faring? You have been on my mind and in my prayers. Just remember that God is a refuge for those crushed at heart. And please remember His promise at Acts 24:15 and Revelation 21:4,5 that is held out for our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. Prayer is powerful so do not leave, God Jehovah out of the equation. I will be checking back with you soon
Dear Violet, I sincerely hope and pray this message finds you doing fair under the circumstances....I just want you to know that I was thinking about you as the holiday season continues to climax. These can be the hardest times to cope with because of the loss of a loved one. Im praying that God grant you peace of mind and heart, as well as comfort, so that you are not to overwhelmed or saddened by the seasonal festivities around you. Remember, surround yourself with positive people who will be there for you. Its okay to cry Violet if things get next to you. It's totally understandable that you will have an array of emotions and at times feel utterly all alone in a room full of friends and relatives. Violet even when you smile or laugh around others the Bible says at Proverbs 14:13: "Even in laughter the heart may be in pain....", however, the latter part of that verse mentions the outcome of grief: "....and grief is what rejoicing ends up in." Please know that you have my sincerest belated condolences.
Violet, the loss of you husband has been heavy on your heart and mind and living without him has been quite a challenge and that is very understandable. The Bible speaks of married couples as being "one flesh" which illustrates the intimacy and permanence of the marital bond. And so when this marital bond is severed by the death of a spouse or other means, the pain and suffering of the surviving spouse can be great (Genesis 2:24). Just know that the Bible holds out a beautiful hope and promise for our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death (Isaiah 26:19; Revelation 21:4,5)
Be patient with yourself during your period of grief. No one grieves exactly the same way. There are no set rules to the amount of time a person should be through grieving over the loss of a spouse or any family member. The important thing is to take care of your health by getting enough rest, fresh air and eating nutritious meals. Surround yourself with positive people that will do more listening than talking. Because sometimes during the grieving process all you may need is for someone to be there and listen, someone who will allow you to express your feelings and let you cry if you must. That is why we have tear ducts......(:^). I will be checking on you to see how you are faring or coming along. Also I will be praying for your well being and that you have peace of heart and mind.
