At 41 years of age I lost my momma. She was 84. She was my very best friend and I was hers. Fast forward five years and daddy would join her. What could seem like a really dim circumstance it brought me great comfort knowing they were together for all eternity.
Once daddy passed away momma’s ashes were placed in daddy’s casket. They were buried in a military Cemetary with a military funeral. Momma wanted to be in his casket to be with him always … and so it was.
Although this time in my life was dim it allowed me to begin the process of healing through grief. Great comfort washed over me knowing they were at the feet of Jesus . . . two-gether. ♥️
f there was no love, there would be no grief
The loss of my loves is beyond belief
Grieving is timeless and does not discriminate
Brokenhearted, hurting, too much to articulate
Tears on my pillow
Sadly, I am not alone
Lost in living when your loved one is gone
Intense, chaotic, emotions so strong
No more life together on this side of eternity
However, I can get through this with God and me
Leaning into grief like waves of the ocean
Trust and being ever present is a great devotion
The holidays are coming so what do I do?
Pray, reach out, and God will get me through.
Brokenhearted, hurting, a room filled with pain
Each story very different yet similar, just the same
Pain is equal in loss and great severity
Trust the process to bring healing and clarity
To do the next right thing may seem insurmountable
It is only with God that I can do the impossible
Grief within me take me wherever you will
God will show me ALL in his GREAT reveal
In loving memory of Colonel and Mrs. Lawrence Stuart Glass (Ret.). Until we meet again. Love always, your baby girl.
In His love,
