On Grieving

Another one from my lady sage.

“Reverend M. Greene sent me the below upon my Dad’s passing. He used it when he said the service on 9th June. I find it just one of the best things ever heard.    xo  B.”

Walking With Grief

Do not hurry
as you walk with grief
it does not help the journey.

Walk slowly,
pausing often;
do not hurryas you walk with grief.

Be not disturbed$ y memories that come unbidden.
Swiftly forgive;
and let Christ speak for you unspoken words.
Unfinished conversation will be resolved in Him.
Be not disturbed.

Be gentle with the one
who walks with grief.
If it is you,
be gentle with yourself.
Swiftly forgve;
walk slowly,
pausing often.

Take time, be gentle
as you walk with grief.
