Six Words Saturday

Even with joy, Grief's still present.


I stand by my last post. (The one immediately below this one.) I am doing much better, and it's a testimony to God's faithfulness to have joy back in my life. But I still miss Seth.

Today, my heart hurts.. One of the most difficult issues for me has been trying to find a "balance". To miss Seth and still feel joy. To feel joy and not think it sends the message to the entire world that I'm "over it". I'll never be "over" it. There will always be a hole in my heart.

Even with joy, Grief's still present.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Our God is a loving compassionate God, and only He knows the why of things we can't understand. I'll be back to visit your blog, and pray for the peace that passes all understanding.

Beautiful sentiment. Praying for such unspeakable peace to just flood your heart. I know it is still hard. But so thankful that God is so present.

Beautifully said. I do believe that joy and grief can exist side by side - they simply just have to. xox

Two days ago was the 6th anniversary of the home going of our little 6 yr. old Anna. Our hearts still hurt over losing her. She was such a wonderful little girl. We have so many happy memories of her, and we miss her so much.

But the Lord has been gracious and He has also allowed us to carry on, and to experience the joy of her baby brother Harrison...who is now 3 yr. old. We trust God and He is always faithful.

I know exactly what you mean that you can experience both sorrow and joy at the same time. The good news is you will see your Seth again and have him with you for all of eternity, and we shall see Anna too. This gives us hope Amen?

Love in Christ,
Linda

Beautiful words. Balance isn't always an easy thing - it definitely takes a conscious effort.
