Dear God

Dear God,      In the past weeks, months, years,my life has changed dramatically.My loved one made a decision,I wish he had not made.Leaving me heartbroken with disbelief, guilt, anger,confusion, so many "if onlys" and " whys?".Help me to find enough inner strength to survive. Help me to accept what has happened.Help me to live with only partial answers.Help me to find a way to cherish my memories.Help me to adapt and reorganize my life.Help me to find a new focus.Help me to respond in a positive way;to go on with renewed faith in your everlasting love.                                    Amen

That is a nice prayer.. I wish for both of us that we can find a way to respond positively, and the inner strength we need to get through.
All the best,
Dee

Amen to your journal prayer. God will be our strength and our guide but it is hard to accept the departure of our loved ones. I am praying with you and for you and your family. Lots of love Margaret

I know several survivors of this situation, and it just angers me to see what these loved ones put their loved ones through! I know, I know, they were in intractable pain, etc., but it is so selfish in the end, and destructive!! You sound balanced and resolute; you have a positive attitude and you are working your way through the pain, not around it with major distractions (travelling too much, doing too much, spending sprees, substance abuse. etc.) What a lovely prayer you wrote. I wish you peace and eventual joy - once again.

Amen to shevan! You will find your way. Keep the faith and give it time. It unfortunately takes time. In the meantime, know there are many who are there for you.

This is just beautiful, Debbie. Thank you for sharing it with us. My dad took his own life, too, and I\'m going to print this up to read it when I feel a little down. I know now that I\'m not alone. Thanks again, Joanne
