With all our technological, medical, and scientific advancements, the common and routine can frustrate us.
That’s because we are limited. And the first step of grieving is acknowledging and admitting death is inevitable. The truth sets us free. That means the part of us which is weighed down with confusion, discouragement, frustration and disappointment breaks free with acceptance.
We are made of the same stuff as our predecessors who lost loved ones to disease, accidents, and war.
We cannot stop it.
Generations before us lived with death. Does this make our personal grieving easier? No. But it helps us to know we are made of the same stuff as our ancestors. We’re human.
We cannot control everything that happens to us the way we choose our ring tones or favorite search engine.
To grieve is to accept.
But to accept is to trust.
Trust in what? Or whom?
There is always someone who writes the book.
In the Beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth.
