An Apt Description of Grief, from THE JOURNEY by Mindy Wilsford
Before we go through a loss like this, we assume that grief is like falling into a deep hole. We think we will start climbing a ladder and as we get closer to the top things start getting brighter and brighter and we keep feeling better and better until we finally step out into the sunshine where the birds are singing and beautiful m...
AdvertisementI felt the light of heaven
it was shining down on me,
I heard His voice, He called my name,
"my child, come follow Me;"
There is no pain, there is no hurt
nor sadness anywhere,
In heaven there is joy and love
and I'll be waiting there;
For on the day I left this earth
I felt your many tears,
And now I watch you from above
and keep you very near;
It hurts to be apart from me, but
be patient for ...
I wrote this on the evening of January 18, 2016, shortly after the doctors told us there were no more treatments available for Pat's cancer.
As she sleeps
The beauty of peace on her face,
I wonder how she chose me
To share her life.
And when she wakes
her smile is real;
Her love of life and sunshine
I see my reflection in
The light in her eyes
And I am humbled and honored.
These are the ...
Instead of Christmas gifts for me
Come take some things away
There’s so much here that I don’t want ...
So please… don’t give just take
Take away my knowledge
Of funerals, urns and graves
And take away the guilt I have
For not being with her to save
Take away these inward screams
that resonate her death
And take away my begging
To give her back her br...
Morning sickness that lasted all day... I do not care &n...
The Bright Forever
Breaking through the clouds that gather,
O'er the Christian's natal skies,
Distant beams, like floods of glory,
Fill the soul with glad surprise;
And we almost hear the echo
Of the pure and holy throng,
In the bright, the bright forever,
In the summer land of song.
Yet a little while we linger,
Ere we reach our journey's end;
Yet a little while of labor,
Ere the evening shades ...
As the holidays approach I know we may often feel very sad... but today I have two poems I want to share with you that I hope you'll keep in your heart to help you with the pain. Hugs Elissa
This one helps me... because it made me realize... We are never without them...
I am sorry for your loss. I understand it will hurt forever. Some of my friends have told me that they have had people say maybe they should not be so sad because they only had their child for a very short time, many of them lost their children before they were even born.
I know you loved your child(ren) sometimes years before they were concieved or born. I know because I did. You dreamed of h...
THROUGH HEAVENS DOOR
Our little Jerred Thomas is here no more
He has entered through Heaven's door,
Though aching hearts are filled with weeping,
He is with Jesus, for safe keeping.
He can still be our sunshine from the Heavens above
On earth he was ours to hold and love
In our hearts he can still be our joy
On Earth, he was our precious little boy.
From Heaven Above, Jerred Thomas was sent as a ...

It must be very difficult
To be a man in grief,
Since "men don't cry" and "men are strong"
No tears can bring relief.
It must be very difficult
To stand up to the test
And field calls and visitors
So she can get some rest.
They always ask if she's all right
And what she's going through
But seldom take his hand and ask,
"My friend, but how are you?"
He hears her crying in the night
