Grief

I was walking to worship on Sunday morning with Eddie, one of our church members. On our way across the street, Eddie replied to my inquiry about his weekend. He said, "I am just so sad. I miss Tracy. I still feel so sad."

"Yes, Eddie," I replied. "I also really miss her."

She has been gone almost a month, and the tears still come without notice. I'm still sad.

Dear Lord, please continue to touch the dark places left by our loss. Please continue to provide peace in our places of pain. Provide hope in our places of doubt. And remind us that from death comes resurrection. Blessed are those who mourn. They shall be comforted. Amen.

I think there are many of us just walking around, going through the motions and looking like everything is okay. But deep inside, it still hurts. Losing Tracy, my childhood friend that I remained close with always, has been the hardest thing. There isn't a minute that goes by that I don't miss her. I can imagine how everyone else must feel. She had a way of making everyone feel so special.
