15 Things I Wish I’d Known About Grief


I found this insightful and honest. I’m planning on thinking through each point today during my Sabbath rest with the Lord. I love sharing remarkable writing with those of you who visit “David’s Place.” Blessings.

    1. I’m really sorry that you have had so much loss this past year. And thank you for sharing with us. I’m certain that many of the readers that come to my site are disciples of Jesus. I know they will pray for you. And perhaps some will share insights that they have experienced as a result of similar loss. I’m trusting that in the new year, 2014, the Lord will comfort and encourage you. Then though you may not have every answer, the questions themselves may change. Bless you Patricia.
