GRIEF QUOTES and WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT

"Why are hurting people sometimes asked, expected or required to pretend about the way they really feel when telling the truth is closer to godliness than pretending will ever be?" From Life Is Tough But God Is Faithful, How to See God's Love in Difficult Times by Sheila Walsh

"For all of us, there will be times when God seems far away and prayers bounce off the ceiling. It is at these moments-whether we face terminal illness or are being terminated at work-that we must choose. We can give in to despair, or we can keep going on in simple trust" From Life Is Tough But God Is Faithful, How to See God's Love in Difficult Times by Sheila Walsh

"Grief is accepting the reality of what is. That is grief's job and purpose-to allow us to come to terms with the way things really are, so that we can move on. Grief is a gift of God. Without it, we would all be condemned to a life of continually denying reality, arguing or protesting against reality, and never growing from the realities we experience." From God will Make A Way, What to Do When You Don't Know What To Doby Dr. Henry Cloud, Dr. John Townsend

"A person who hasn't grieved a significant loss has unfinished business inside and can cause others great grief as a result." From God will Make A Way, What to Do When You Don't Know What To Do by Dr. Henry Cloud, Dr. John Townsend
