Two weeks

Oh dear God. It's only been two weeks. 

Blessings ~ God's strength, grace, mercy and love ~


  1. Anonymous8:33 AM EST

    Keep entrusting your heart and mind into the safe keeping of the bosom of the Lord, where you will find comfort... sometimes when grief is so deep, it takes on a feeling of slow motion... or at least it has for me... bless you.

  2. Well, maybe 3 weeks? Just shows you time does not really matter when it comes to this. Only one day at a time is all we can do. Thinking of you every day as I also help my mom understand that all is still good. It is just our time to be a little sad but also celebrate the lives of Dave and my dad...xoxoxo

  3. I hope and pray you are doing as well as possible. My thoughts and prayers are still with you as you travel this road.

  4. Write it all out, Sandra. We are here. Listening. Ans So is God.
    I love you so very much!
    xo, misha

  5. When my husband died, sometimes all I could ask for was 10 minutes of peace. Our old friends just seemed to disappear...the people I had counted on... I "lost" the first year after he was gone. But one day I realized that I hadn't cried that day. Things slowly got better. You do things on your own time, and Holidays are always rough. Hang in there... God's in charge, always has been. Wish I could help you (been there done that kind of thing). Love you!

  6. Minute by minute Sandra. Keep as busy as you can but do take time to grieve and cry - it's OK to cry...and scream at the unfairness of life. Just remember God is holding you up as are our prayers. Big hugs!

  7. These two words and these two trees make me ache for you. Warm hugs, Sandra. Keep dragging one foot in front of the other because what else can be done?

    A long-time family friend finally succombed to ALS and died Thanksgiving day. Mike flew there at 5 am today to be with his childhood friends and their mom.

    Sometimes gratitude is easy, sometimes a sacrifice of praise.

    My prayers are with you.

  8. Dear Sandra~
    I have no words. I do not know this heartache you are going through, but I do pray that the One Who does is bestowing a measure of comfort to you.

  9. It WILL get better! It will. One moment, one word at a time. Some things in life we can skip, but grief is not one of them. Your times are in His Hands. He will walk/carry you through it. Keep on walking, keep on writing, keep on doing what needs doing, keep on talking to Him each moment/each step.

    My heart goes out to you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  10. We're here for you, darlin'.
    Take your time and visit each day as new. May the Lord wrap you in His loving arms of comfort and give you direction.
    I like what Sheryl said about celebrating Dave and her dad's lives.
    Blessings, Kathy

  11. My thoughts are with you. I'm so sorry for this painful time and send you all the strength and support I can.

  12. When each day is a hurdle then it's normal for two weeks to seem like a small lifetime.
    I'm still asking that God's hand be on your shoulder during this time.
    Cyberhugs to you!

  13. Sandra, forgive me, I'm just checking in after some time away and I'm so sad to hear of Dave's death. My prayers and affection are with you, as is the Spirit of the Lord, who raised Jesus from the dead. Joyful for Dave, who has graduated to Glory. Much love, Cindy

  14. No not "only two weeks" - 14 days that you have had the strength to press on, the love and memories to continue. It is like a toddler two steps forward three back and then forward but this time four steps.

    We praise your edging forward in this new phase of your life. And we are here if you fall with the Lord,all of us standing by you!
