grief.

Grief can be a horrible thing. Often because it is a mash of bittersweetness. And often because it can be so lonely. While it can look and sound so similar for so many, you are the only one in that moment. And there isn’t much anyone can do to get you out of it.

C.S. Lewis writes,

“Aren’t all these notes the senseless writhings of a man who won’t accept the fact that there is nothing we can do with suffering except to suffer it? Who still thinks there is some device (if only he could find it) which will make pain not to be pain. It doesn’t really matter whether you grip the arms of the dentist’s chair or let your hands lie in your lap. The drill drills on.” A Grief Observed

Caleb and I still miss our little blue. Some days are sad, others more thankful. Some days we think of what-would-have-been, and others of what-could-be. Though we are truly filled with hope, peace, and joy, the drill seems to just keep drillin’ on.

No matter how “small” or “great” your grief,  these articles are insightful and seem to echo truths that transcend across all griefs and pains.

How Not to Say the Wrong Thing.

May the Lord of all comfort hear your cries and draw near to you in your griefs.
