Grief often hides some of our most precious memories but, as healing takes place, pain begins to fade, allowing us to remember more and more of the connection we had with the ones who left us. That connection, that love, outlasts pain. As perhaps the strongest force in the universe, love overcomes death.
As we remember those who served our country this Memorial Day - and their families - take some quiet time to feel your loved one's presence in the "other room." An expression being used a lot this year because of the Covid-19 virus is "separate but together." I think this is very much applicable to lost loved ones as well as family members and friends who are self-isolating.
God's love is a bit like that. It surrounds us at all times, but we need to draw aside and think of Him to feel close. His welcoming arms are waiting.
Way for Hope
My name is Jan McDaniel. I speak grief. I also speak peace and healing. I started A Way for Hope blog and website to house projects I create that might help others who are grieving. The blog has expanded to include guest posts by my dear friends and fellow survivors who wanted to speak hope for others, too.
We understand how difficult losing someone you love is. We know how much it means to hear from others further along on this journey and how it is possible to live a life of happiness and joy even while still remembering and honoring those we love.
