Life here on earth is not fair and death is certainly the worst part about life. I look forward to what awaits us after our short, sometimes painful, time here.

By the way, I am 33 and my 29 year old wife died last year. We had been married nine years. She had such an awesome heart and a love for God. She loved our kids so very much. We had just moved to a new town, and had been there for one month when she died in an accident. We knew no one there and all my friends and family were two hours away. I was left with a one year old, a six year old, and a night shift job working 12 hours. You talk about scary!!!

I could never have done this on my own. God gave me an unbelievable strength and answered a lot of prayers. Moments after my daughter and I found mommy dead in the front yard, my daughter was really struggling. She was so worried about who was going to take her to school and who was going to fix her hair. Right then I knew that God put his hand on me and gave me a strength that was not my own. I comforted her and told her everything was going to be OK because we had God. After we prayed together, she started doing better.

That was ten short months ago. I am living proof of what God can do!!! To those that say your grief time is directly related to how much you loved the person........I'll just say whatever!! Nothing is impossible with God. He doesn’t work on a time schedule. My heart is as healed as it is ever going to be....there will always be scars there, but my heart is healed. What makes this even more amazing? God sent a wonderful woman into my life that I love very much. When we focus on God and not on ourselves and not on other people, he can do amazing things.

It breaks my heart to read about your struggles and pain. The presumption is time will heal us and time does help. We also must do the work if we want to be free from the grip that grief holds on us. Do not avoid the pain. You have to in a sense, fight it. The pain will not go away on its own. We have to go through grief, right? Why not do it as quickly and effectively as possible. Life is too short to mourn for years and years. Get the pain out….talk about it, get counseling, give it to God. Cry, Cry, Cry. Know that no matter how many friends and family members die, no matter what we go through in this life, we are never alone. God is always with us. God is all we need.

I will pray for you
