Instead of grieving, We will celebrate life

Because of Him
Death has no sting
The grave no victory
Because of Him
Guilt becomes peace
Regret becomes relief
Despair becomes hope
Because of Him
We have second chances
Clean slates
New beginnings
There is no such thing
As the end
Because of Him

This week my family and I will go through a grieving process as we say goodbye to my great uncle who suddenly passed away.  Nothing makes it easier.  It hurts. It will hurt for a while, but I keep reminding myself to be a pillar for my family.  To remember that the love we have for him that hurts us now is the same love that we have that will allow us to let him go and move forward with life.  We will never understand why this happens. But it does.  It's part of this wonderful thing we call life.

I pray to God that he is by our side as we mourn and that he uses me to be strong for my little cousins whose grandfather is gone.  I need to be a support system for them as they are more vulnerable.  They need me, and I will be there.

Thank you for all the prayers and kind words.  As I always say, this blogging community is so much more than just bloggers.  You have seen our ups and downs and are my friends who support and rally with me.

Thank YOU.  It does not go unnoticed the support you give me with open arms.

If any of you are going through a tough time and would like me to keep you in my prayers, please do not hesitate to let me know.  I am a firm believer in the power of prayer.
