This is A Season of Loss for Some

We have seasons when we mourn for our lost loved ones. For some, the goodbye was not the best. What was your relationship with a deceased loved one? It makes a difference. Was there a chance to say "goodbye" and find peace with the person? Was there an opportunity to forgive and be forgiven? If not, abuse, neglect, separation, harsh words can continue to sting when the person is gone. Think of them and yourself at their and your best. Believe the best about their and your ability to let go and let God. Honoring the good qualities of the person and yourself as well as the faithfulness of God can be healing.
