GRIEF

A huge wave

Like a mighty ocean wave Grief swamped me. Two  Words  ‘Never Again!   ‘Never Again’ pounded in the sea.   I cried for what is gone and never will be again.

   I grieved for the loss of our beloved daughter.  The sorrow was intense yet I knew, somehow I knew, I had to ride the wave to shore. 

I landed on the sand.           

Look up!       

     

        WITH ME…      Two words blew on the wind.

           I was left alone on the sand.     ‘Now, the Voice in my spirit said, ‘Stand’      ‘Walk on I am with you.

      I now walk along this beach of my life and though I grieve….I  know the wave of my grieving will always carry me back to shore and keep me looking up where He sees from on  high where she is with Him, yet lives with me through His Spirit  down here.  

           Thank You Lord!    

This was a dream I had last night and I woke up crying because the wave was heartbreakingly real. The rest of the dream unfolded and today Peace was God’s Gift.

Tomorrow is Alison’s Funeral Service.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
