"In our culture we have support for crisis. It is in the year or two after a traumatic experience that we are expected to 'get on with it. It's over.'
But, we can't get on with it until we have allowed ourselves to feel, express, and fully release our emotions about our trauma." - Northrup
The loss of health. Home. Job. Relationship. Pet.
The winding road toward healing will have many rocky moments. Bittersweet memories will relentlessly line your path. Overwhelming sadness will come when you least expect it. Torrents of tears will threaten to undo you.
And yes, you will stumble as you make your way ahead.
But be encouraged today. As you grieve well and keep on putting one foot in front of the other, more glimpses of the hopeful promise of wholeness will enter your life.
Embrace the journey and find peace ... because He never leaves you. He doesn't forsake.
And yes, heaven stands ~
