I’ve discovered on my journey through grief and been reminded just today that one of the most painful parts of grieving for me is morning time.  I’ll share more tomorrow night.

But as the sun peeked through our mini-blinds this morning, I remembered with a heavy sigh that…..

Waking up to the reality of loss of any kind is like being swept back in time……

to the beginning of the pain

to the moment you first heard devastating news

to the moment when you knew that your next step would never match your last step

Today, I am thankful for this promise:

Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23
