You can "get through it"

Losing a child to death brings a myriad of emotions ... all complicated ... all different ... all difficult.

Lori speaks today about wisdom shared from an elderly couple that had lost a child over 40 years earlier ...

"An elderly couple made a point to ask their son-in-law to bring them to our daughter's visitation. This 80+ year old couple held our hands and looked us in the eye and said, our son died over 40 years ago. When people say, "you'll get over it", they lie. You won't ever "get over" loosing a child but we want you to know you can "get through" it. I think of that comment almost every day and it's been a year and a half now!"

Father, Yahweh, I pray today for Lori, and all who have lost a child. Grant them this word of hope ... you can.

xtnyoda, shalomed
