CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
Sending hugs and healing prayers along with this book.
I will read this and pass it on to someone else who needs comforting words. Thank you and God bless.
This was a lovely book with pretty illustrations. There are discussions of not only the final losses - but other losses like divorce or losses of pets or material losses through natural disasters like fire or tornadoes or even robbery. The book is divided into 3 parts - dealing with grief, no matter the source; types of losses; and finally how to help others that have suffered a loss. There is a wealth of information and the book includes a lot of Biblical quotes as well as a bunch of readings applicable to particular situations (when needing comfort or when seeking hope). There are also support resources included (although no web addresses as these are constantly changing). This is a nice book and I have referred to it often over the years. Thank you, Edwina. <3
Bible quote from this book that I always find of comfort:
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
I hope you find this as lovely and comforting as I did.
My first page turn bore the book's epigraph, and one of my most favorite Bible Scriptures...
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
~ Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 NIV
