Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
Friends of ours set out on a three month missionary trip to Costa Rica leaving February 7th 2013. Received a call late February 10th that Tom had passed away that day of a heart attack. His wife, Linda, will be home with him soon. Two of his children flew to Costa Rica to be with their mother.
There are no words to express my sadness. It is Normal to Feel This Way because God did not create man to die or get sick. Thankfully we are comforted by the hope Jesus mentions at (John 5:28,…Continue

There is just so much grief - caused by many events in our lives - unfortunately death may well be the worst but many other happenings rank right up there. This is 15 yr old Brandon Parra. He is not my blood grandson but he calls me grandma and it sure feels like he is mine. He has been in the hospital off and on, every few weeks for over a year - this stretch has been 4…Continue

Sad to report that pancreatic cancer claimed my brother in law's life early this morning. Over the last 2 years he has cared for my mother in law. She has Alzheimer and is 90 years old.

It is so difficult to see another piece of history end. Waves of the past keep flowing over me. Memories. . . such good times. . . our friend Jackie will be missed as is her sister Paula each and every day. Thank you, Jackie for remembering everything about me and all your smiles and hugs and always putting Jehovah first. It will be wonderful seeing you and Paula and making new forever memories together.

Dearest Brenda, I am remiss in THANKING you for taking such time to write me such a thoughtful and caring message years ago now... Time stands still and moves forward all at once it seems. I truly and deeply appreciate your thoughts and true kindness in reaching out to me in the way that you did. My mother was an English teacher and Pastor, as a result I find it the example you used to communicate to me quite fascinating as well...I am grateful for your message to me and although long overdue; thank you! Warmest thoughts, Jessica
Thank you Brenda. I will listen and I send you a hug to. It's so good to have someone to talk to who knows and have felt what we are feeling. Sometimes I think other just don't understand. Thank you.
Hello. Nice to meet you and thank you for the kind request.
Thanks for being my friend, Brenda Ann. Its nice to have a "sister in the faith" to talk to. I see your from my home state. I am originally from El Paso, Tx. Hope you and your family are well! Agape...
I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart and apologize for not doing so earlier for the kindness you showed me in your comment to me last year. Thank You Sooo Very Much for taking your time to write what you did and share what you did with me and for me..it means A LOT! Warmest Regards~J
thank you Brenda, I can really relate to the Shakespeare quote, it feels like I will bust open from grief if I don't talk about it.
Brenda, thank you for posting some verses from Job, you had left a comment that included Job chapter 10. Just totally described where I am at today after two child losses.
Thank you for you kind and comforting words
Im trying my hardest to move on with my daily routine, but sometime it not easy. Have a good week
