One day at a time…But we don’t have to do it alone.
Grief has occupied my mind a lot these past few weeks.
time standing still,
God speaks softly to the broken hearted and in this short story he reminded me that we are not alone through it all.
“I’m babysitting my 2 1/2 year granddaughter and 1 year old grandson…..Cutest thing just happened.. (Name of child) showed me her Bible and I said it talks about Jesus.

Told my son and daughter in law..You have taught her well.”
You see as believers we have a hope, and in seeing how believers react to grief reminds me it is well.
Through the tears it is well
Through sorrow it is well
Through grief it is well
Because God is good.
