Just Keep Living

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.

Just Keep LivingI’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.


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.

If we're gonna heal

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

We will not be shaken,
