Conflicting emotions

Losing a child to death brings a myriad of emotions ...                 

all complicated ... all different ... all difficult.

Silent Grief speaks today about ... holidays ...

There is always so much advertising and talk about "holiday weekends" -- family picnics, family camping trips, family swimming outings. Family. Family. Family. Which is wonderful -- except when you have a child missing from the family. Just hearing the words "family time" to those who have gone through child loss can bring on tears, panic attacks, anxiety attacks, bad dreams, and mood swings. When there is a child missing from the family, our heart aches to the point of breaking because we miss our child so much! Nothing feels "right or complete" any more. The circle feels broken. There is always that little voice that reminds us, "Your child is gone" and the pain is indescribable. It's so hard to smile and act like everything is okay when inside we feel like we're ready to collapse. There are no words to explain what it feels like to miss your child so much you feel like you're going to explode from holding in the pain! We love our family here on earth so much, but we miss our child so much we want to die so we can be together. It's not easy to live with those two very strong conflicting emotions of love!!!!!

Father, Yahweh, I pray today for Silent Grief, and all who have lost a child. or a grandchild.  I pray that You will hold them as close to Your heart as You hold the child they love and lost.

Father, bless them today.

xtnyoda, shalomed
