The Tidal Wave Of Grief

There is no pain to compare the pain of grieving.
It’s a dark and lonely place that we all have to walk through alone.
No one can explain it and everyone’s experience going through it is different.
Grief has many shades and colors and no one shares the same experience.
The wave of grief is like a tidal wave washing you way.
You can’t breath and the panic is overwhelming.
It’s a deep pain that defies logic but when we can come through it with dignity and grace.
And like every tidal wave this too shall pass.
Only God knows what it is like for, He, too, grieved for His Only Begotten Son.
That is when God gets all the Glory and that’s the beauty in death.
We learn to love more deeply and appreciate the person we lost more than we ever did before.
Our memories of our love ones are Holy as God the Father is Holy.
That is the miracle of death.

“He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off the faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it. Isaiah 25:8
