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 ...
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...

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
The following poem was written by Christine Ross for her son Luke. I have noticed lately that I seem more able to smile... I hurt... I will always hurt... I have come to believe that is just part of my normal... and I know for many of you it is the same... but blessedly I believe that I am letting the joy outweigh the pain.. There was a time I would never have thought this day would c...
A friend of mine shared this poem with us today. The poem was written by a friend of her daughter McKayla's on the occassion of McKayla's 3rd year angel anniversary. I really feel like this poem is a gift to the world. I hope it makes your heart smile as you read and recognize... Your child is with you for always. Hugs Elissa Cara's Mom For Always
Three Years Later .....
This is a repeat... but I thought I'd share it again for moms who might find comfort from this song... I find it very comforting... Hugs Elissa Cara's Mom
i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side....
