When I #speak at #events on #grief and #widows at #ministry and #church events and more all over the world, I mention and use this ALL the time…..
I *very much dislike* the people that use that #phrase #getoverit…..
If grief, especially a spouse, (but also other relationships) you didn’t get #divorced (or lose them), you didn’t #choose to leave and put that behind you.
Example of Bryan Delk – he went to #heaven, so it’s not like a divorce, where I put my life w him behind me….that will #NEVER happen.
I may decide to #MoveForward in my life, but I am never *moving on*…..Yes, there is a BIG #difference and if you have not lost someone SUPER close to you – you might not understand it – and you won’t till you do…..I never even came close to knowing how it felt till it happened…and I pray you never do…..
Same w my Mom, Jacalyn Baxter Lantrip, and the 8 other major losses I have had the last few years…..I didn’t choose to lose her – she was one of my best friends my whole life……I will always love and miss her and never *move on* from that…..
Now I will CHOOSE to live my life to the fullest and try to the way #God wants me to, as that is what those that have gone on before me would want for me…..
Yes cry, yes get angry, yes beat your pillow if that makes you feel better….but then get up and move forward…..cuz you are still breathing for a reason…… #MakeADifference in your #Dash while you are here <3
