It is great to feel normal again. After years battling anger and depression and confusion brought on by the death of my wife Kathy it is nice to be able to wake up ready to meet the new day. It is refreshing to go through the day without being ambushed by grief. It is nice to be able to talk about Kathy and the things I have been through the past three plus years without being choked up or sad.
I wonder how people without a relationship with Jesus Christ handle traumatic events in life. Do they resort to drink or drugs? Do they die in their grief? Do they just muddle through? I don’t know. Maybe it’s a subject I need to follow up on more with those unbelievers who have had their spouse die.
Anyway, I won’t bore you with all of the personal details. But I will tell you that there is life beyond grief. You don’t need to spend any more time mourning than is necessary. If you get stuck, there are ways to easily get unstuck. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
