... I rest in comfort, in my Abba's arms ...

Image (c) 2007, Karla Dorman

Strange, how grief works --- one
minute, I'm fine, the
next, rivers of tears

puddle at my feet:
it will take time.  But
for now, I'm at peace ---

he didn't suffer.
And as he's laid to
rest, so, too, am I ---

I rest in comfort,
in my Abba's arms ---
knowing I am loved.

(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (5/31)

Reviewed by Lois Christensen 5/31/2008
Keep busy, that is my secret to grieve less, when I am occupied I don't think about it so much. Of course, times tears come and go that is natural. Take all the time you need to grieve too and don't let anyone tell you any different. Prayers are with you and one day you will be laughing again and going on with your life more than now.

It will take time. Just know there are a lot of people here who care about you and your sister. You're a part of our family too. I'm sorry about your dad but you have inner strengths and your father's continued love. God bless. You and your sis are in my prayers. Liz

God is watching out over you, as He should, and He knows the cries/groans of your heart. He will get you through this period of sadness; all you have to do is lean on Him and know that Daddy's no longer sick or suffering. That's what brings me the most comfort now; it will take time, don't rush it. Take one day at a time and know God is with you, always, especially during times of sadness! A most beautiful, heart tugging write; you've blessed me today! BRAVA!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :) >tears! <
