I was away a couple weeks ago. So there was a gap in posting to this blog. I’m sorry. But I want you to know you are always with me. I spent some of my vacation time reading a grief book, the topic I read more than anything else. I think of you and pray for you. But I was away and not writing. You may have a chance to go away somewhere. Take a retreat weekend; take a vacation to a beach somewhere. But probably you will take your grief with you. It’s in you more than it is around you. It will go with you everywhere.
I have one quick thought to share: so is Jesus. He promised when He left earth after the resurrection and after staying for 40 days, seeing many and teaching much: I am with you to the end of the age (Matthew 28:20). He is with you, all the time and everywhere. He is the comforter for those who mourn – wherever and whenever you are grieving. Always.
