Bereavement Ministry

The rain to the wind said,

"You push and I'll pelt."

They so smote the garden bed

 That the flowers actually knelt,

 And lay lodged---though not dead.

I know how the flowers felt.

 ----Robert Frost

 When life brings terrible storms our direction, we may react with anger, fear, depression, sadness, disappointment, and or disbelief. We may vacillate between these feelings until we come to terms with a solution or acceptance of our grief.

 The object of our grief maybe the loss of a love one, of a job, of a relationship or loss of security. Also, failure, crisis, divorce or any life changes may be substantial for grief.

 Remember this, healthy grief comes to a solution or acceptance, unhealthy grief is unresolved and may appear either as a psychological or physical illness.

 "We walk in faith not by sight." 2 Corinthians 5:7
