I wanted to share this with everyone,because so often we are so consumed with our grief we tend to forget we have others who need us too.

love,hugs and prayers,

Your Family Needs Your Support
Day 168

As difficult as it is, your life must go on. No, you'll never feel the same
again, and that hurt place in your heart will never be fully healed on this side
of heaven. But the others--your family--they need you to be involved in their
everyday lives. They need your help as they journey through grief.

"Your family deserves you as a hundred-percent person," says Barbara Johnson,
whose two sons died. "They don't deserve only half of you. But so many times
parents are so wrapped up in that grief. They keep rotating back to that other
time instead of saying, 'Hey, I'm still alive. I have children who need me.'
This is a new life. The other chapter is done, but the book goes on."

Provide your family with the love, attention, and nurturing they so desperately
need from you.

"If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate
family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever" (1 Timothy
5:8).

Lord, thank you that as I provide for others, You, in turn, will provide for me.
Amen.

What Happens When We Die?
Carolyn Nystrom

The thought of dying can be scary for a child. This simple yet profound book
helps children learn what the Bible says about death and helps them glimpse the
wonders and delights that God has in store for them in heaven. From a child's
viewpoint, this endearing story addresses a child's fears, sadness, and
questions about death.
