Getting Through the Grief

Tomorrow morning, it will have been exactly one week since an act of violence at Sandy Hook Elementary forever changed our entire country.  Our hearts have been heavy, and it may feel like peace is nowhere in sight. 

A very thoughtful article sent to me from Bob Mueller, Senior Director of Mission & Stewardship at Hosparus, made me think about this intense grief that we’re all feeling in a different, hopeful way.  I hope this excerpt from it helps your heart heal.
As they walk through grief, many people learn to make their own decisions, to forget their old selves, and to begin being better and stronger persons. They realize the need to keep on living and loving. There is marvelous power in accepting the fact that a change in our lives has occurred. Something has been lost, but new experiences can be found. The valley of the shadow of death is never a place to live; it is a place to go through.
