Grieving is typically thought of as something done when a person loses a loved one. However, loss embodies so much more: loss of-singlehood, job, dreams, position, community, health, innocence, relationships, etc. The grieving process for these losses are all similar in the steps to grieving and recovery. It is important for us to recognize our own areas needing grief work, and validating and supporting others as they grieve. What is painful and sad to a friend may mean nothing to you. However, being Abba's hands and feet means learning how to reach out and validate each persons journey.
