Only Heaven Can Heal {{Suicide- Those Left Behind}}

Today I'm praying for people in a place that I remember far too well...

For a loss that most can't comprehend, and a pain that only Heaven can heal. 

The hugs today may feel like oxygen in some moments, and may smother in another. 

Hug anyway.

The tears today may cleanse in one moment, and sting in another.

Let them flow anyway.

People may say all the wrong things and stumble in their efforts to love today.

Love them anyway.

Today is hard. Crazy hard. Life will always be marked by what it looked like before this day and after this day.

I promise you, though, that it will be even more marked by the Grace that holds you today, the Promise that holds your gaze for every tomorrow, and the Hope that anchors you for eternity.

Praying for you all today. Family, friends, acquaintances. All of you. May you feel held by the only one who can heal this gaping heart hurt.

No matter how you get there today, just love on repeat. It will sustain you. #TheGreatestOfThese

  1. I’m reading this for the first time after stumbling onto you blog today. I guessing this post was about us and our loss. Thank you. ❤️❤️❤️

    1. Months later, I'm just seeing this note. Yes. Didn't know you then, but totally loved you all back then. Your baby will leave a legacy of healed hearts. Nothing wasted. Love you, friend.
