When I was growing up I would hear the old folk say, “just keep living” and “you’ll understand it better by-and-by”.
Then life happened.
My beautiful Mother…my best friend. She taught me everything that I know, but she never prepared me for the heartbreak that is living life without her. It still feels like a dream. I always believed my parents, especially my sweet Mama, would live forever. Literally. Yes, forever. For others that may even be your father, grands, Godparents, mother/father figures, too. I know I’m not alone in this. The reality is a heavy reminder of my own mortality.
I’ll be honest…it hurts. It hurts like hell, which is why I needed to find a way to make it through this healing process in hopes of helping someone else traveling down the same road. It may be a challenge, but the good thing is…we don’t have to do “life” alone.
THERE IS HEALING IN GRIEVING.
Sarah’s Grace is a place for honest conversation, transparency, encouragement, and support for anyone carrying the heaviness that grief and heartbreak often bring. Adjusting to a “new normal” as I explore the messy places is a reminder that I need grace…and lots of it.
Cry if you must. Grieve. Let it ALL out. The good, the bad, and the ugly. There is life after loss here on earth. I have to remind myself DAILY that this life is temporary and that our eternal gain is in heaven. I want to live for today and take life as it comes—one day at a time.
Nothing God allows you to go through is pointless. Even in the midst of hurt, He will work things for your good and His glory. —Lysa TerKeurst
