Thankful on a Thursday 11/04/2010 — 8 Comments

  1. I know this is a hard time for you and I will be praying for you!! Birthdays are always hard when we cant celebrate with those we love! I too love to memorize scripture and I will for sure be teaching my boys how important it is.. knowing God’s word is sooo important.. especially in times like these! 🙂 Happy THursday!

  2. You are in my prayers which I too am thankful for. I am thankful that we have a Heavenly Father who hears our cries and knows our inner most hurts and that He will always be there to help. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This is a beautiful post. So glad to have stopped by. The first paragraph is a perfect description of how grief is all over the place and messy. In light of that grief, being able to find the spots in life where joy and light shine through, showing the way forward, you have done that so well. Prayer and scripture and hope are the way onward to a better place with our heartache and sweet memories in tow.

    Thanks for being brave to share your vulnerable hard places. We are strengthened when we see that others struggle just like we do.

  4. That entire 2nd paragraph describes me right now. You said it so perfectly! And I often think that memorizing prayers would help me out when I find myself without words. This was beautiful. Thank you.

  5. I like how Dawn put it – that grief is all over the place and messy. This year has been one filled with all kinds of grief milestones for me. And no matter how much time has passed, it still kind of amazes me how messy and raw grief can be. It has its own time line and won’t be rushed. So I’m glad you’re building in reminders of love and thankfulness and what has not been lost as part of the process of working through what has.

    Blessings on you for the journey
