Good Grief !!
Tears flowed down my face when I received the telephone call
from my mother and she informed me that my father had passed away from his long
Although I knew he was in heaven, it did not stop me from
grasping the fact that I would not be able to visit and speak to him any
longer, here on this earth.
My husband, Robert told me, “Hazel, those tears are because
you are ‘feeling sorry for yourself,’ and they are not tears of grief.”You
must change your thinking.”Robert
continued with some other words of wisdom that caused me to consider what he
How often do we enjoy a good “pity party, and get pleasure
from feeling sorry for our-self,” and we call it grief for what ever
Honestly I have seen some people weep and wail more over one

There is a time to weep, according to the Bible, and a time
to rejoice.Our grief time is sadness
usually because we will miss the person here on earth.
God does not want us to STAY in the mode of grieving; for
how long, I can’t say, but it should be temporary.A short time to grieve is okay, but then
there comes a time to wipe away the tears.
There are moments to remember the person for who they were
to us and the memories of happy times together.
Even if there were sad times, those can even yet be forgiven
whether the person is with us or not.Speaking out the words “I forgive you,” is healing.
If the person was Hell bound, then we should really
grieve.Then do what we can to give and
live the gospel to those who are still with us.The rich man in hell wanted someone to warn his brothers to repent and
come to God, because he knew Hell was real.His was true grief.
As we live here on earth, may we do our part to show others
who a Christian is, by our example and by reaching out to others with kindness
and encouraging words.
When it is our time to cross that river between earth and
heaven, may our friends and loved ones, grieve for a few moments, and then
rejoice with us that we are with Jesus.
Isaiah 53:3He was despised and rejected of men; a man of
sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and we hid as it were our faces from him;
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
