Thank You

by Mary
(Ocean, NJ)

I would just like to thank those who added comments to my postings. I have written a few times on my feelings and the loss of my husband, Gene. The comments made have really helped. I know I am not alone and that others understand the grief and loneliness I am going through. I am putting my faith in God and asking for strength and peace of mind. I pray that all us that are dealing with heartache and loss will be comforted. Again, I thank you. Being on this site has been so very helpful. May God help us all.

God is Faithful -
by: Dakota Blues

My daughter took her life 3 years ago. She seemed so normal. A bomb exploded in our life. I went into isolation, and a deep depression, and this past January we decided we had to find a church. We have been blessed and warmly received.

I didn't open my Bible during these 3 years. Praise & Worship music...not so much. I don't believe it was God's plan for my daughter...but it was allowed. I am not mad at God but I didn't want to seek Him either. I just didn't want to live.

A friend gave me a copy of a book - The Applause of Heaven by Max Lucado. OMGosh...what a great book. Grief is a lonely road and I believe God is right there with us. My journey still feels it is "me" (all me) walking through this nightmare. It's God's Grace and that will come as I continue to seek him. Funny how my head and heart are not connected!!

Thanks for the post. It's encouraging to read about God's faithfullness in our grief walks.

Hugs and Be Blessed -

Come here as often as you need to because there are many others here that know what you are going through. I have also depended upon God to get me through this horrible grieving and I have so many questions why it happened. Only HE know the reasons why he takes loved ones away. I like to think that some people are born into this life only temporary to fulfill a task given to them by God. I have know the most wonderful love and kindness, my soulmate. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to know this feeling exists, otherwise I would have walked through life never know what it's like to have someone so perfect. God Bless you and take care of yourself. Know you are not alone and we are here for you.

You Are Welcome
by: TrishJ

Yes Mary~
We are all here for you and we care. It's been almost 6 months for me. I'm nearing the 1/2 way mark in my grief journey.
I don't know if I've made a tremendous amount of progress. I have made my peace with God and fully accept his decision as what was right for both of us. My husband was so ill. We both went through so much that last two years. Acceptance doesn't make me miss him any less. I'm still working on that as I rediscover my life and figure out where I am headed.
God bless us everyone!

For Mary
by: Mari

You are so very welcome Mary. We are here for you and we care for you. I am pleased that you rely on God. I do the same.
You sound so kind and caring. Just keep up the faith and keep posting. It sure helps to express your feelings.We understand having suffered losses too. We need time.
The 22nt of May will be a yr and a half since I lost my husband. I still miss him so much. It is like an ache in my heart. But I have made great progress with so many caring people in my life. I tell you Mary, God has poured out the blessings.
My prayer is that you will feel the comfort God so freely gives and remember that we are here for you. Take care of yourself. Keep posting.
