Hello everyone! Sorry, I have been MIA, but I had an unfortunate loss in my family. My auntie Rebecca passed and she was a very special person. She was the glue that held our family together and she will be greatly missed! Loved one’s death can be heartbreaking and difficult to deal with. Although my aunt has transitioned to the other side and will no longer be here physically with us, there is a part of me that feels she is still here. These last 7 months for me have been overwhelming with grief, almost to the point where I can’t focus. Subconsciously, I know that death is a part of life and we have to move on, but my heart hurts and I long for understanding. There is a song that I listen to by Yolanda Adams called, “That Name” and in that song, there’s a verse that gives me peace when I am feeling sad about the loss of my loved ones. It says, “Someday I’ll leave this earthly dwelling, to find a place, my soul will soar. And finally, see the face of Jesus and praise His name, forevermore!” There’s something about the words in this song that gives me peace. I guess for me, that’s how I imagine it will be transitioning from this earth and I can vision my loved ones souls soaring happily to see Jesus! Today, I want to leave encouraging words to everyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one. It’s okay not to be okay and we all cope with loss in different ways. I’m praying for everyone to have a good week and sending love, peace, and light to you all.
