Grieving the Loss of Someone You Love: Daily Meditations to Help You Through the Grieving Process by Raymond R Mitch and Lynn Brookside.
After suffering shattering loss, I received this little, but powerful book from a dear friend.
I’ve recommended this gem so many times that I buy extra copies to give out when a friend or loved one experiences a loss. It may be small, but it packs a powerful punch, broken up into short daily readings. It deals with practical issues from a biblical perspective.
My copy is highlighted and dog geared and shows lots of wear and tear. The authors have experienced a loss that cuts deep, but have also experienced the comfort that God provided during their journey through the grieving process to the other side.
There are 70 short meditations that I used as a companion devotional in my morning devotion time. To be honest with you, it took me longer than 70 days to go through it because I some days I just wasn’t up to facing the heartache that might surface though I’d experienced the healing that can come when a wound is addressed as it should be, some days I just couldn’t ‘rip the band-aid off’. So, instead, I just took my time, pacing myself, and letting the messages dig deep inside to help the hurting, wounded areas.
If your world has been rocked by the death of a close friend or loved one, I highly recommend this little book.
With you on the journey to hope, my friend,
