"When we feel our longing in the deepest part of our soul—when it sharply grieves us—when our first response is How long, O Lord? let it take us to the God who satisfies all desires with himself."
This is the day of Remembrance for so many as they acknowledge October 15th, National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day. Today we stand with and hold hands with our sisters, brothers, friends and loved ones who grieve their babies gone too soon and dreams unmet with their absent.
Grief is a tricky and difficult path. It is important to honor and attend to your grief, even so, there may be times that you are just weary and tired of feeling sad, so you decided to push it aside for a while…..only to find it erupting in unexpected moments. So what are we to do with grief, hurting, loss and death? Beth Ann Mergens a Waiting in Hope National Team and contributing writer shares her reflections and thoughts on grief.
