Some thoughts on grief from a range of sources.
“All your waves and billows have gone over me,
and floods of sorrow pour upon me
like a thundering cataract.”
“There we sat down, yea, we wept
When we remembered…”
“There is only one way for you
To live without grief in your lifetime; that is
To exist without love. Your grief represents
Your humanness, just as your love does.”
“Grief is not a disorder, a disease or a sign of weakness.
It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love.”
“Grieving is the natural way of working through the loss of a love.
Grieving is not weakness nor absence of faith.
Grieving is as natural as crying when you are hurt,
sleeping when you are tired or sneezing when your nose itches.
It is nature’s way of healing a broken heart.”
“So with you: now is your time of grief,
but I will see you again and you will rejoice,
and no one will take away your joy.”
“God blesses those people who grieve.
They will find comfort!”
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes.
There will be no more
death or mourning
or crying or pain,
for the old order of things has passed away.”
