Just a short note tonight . . .
If you haven’t noticed, I’ve had a lot fewer posts lately. I’ve been super busy ramping up my business, which has actually been a good distraction.
I’ve been mulling through a few thoughts, but I’d actually love your input. Because as much as I think about each issue, I just come up with more questions than answers. So — give me your thoughts! I’ll mull over them . . . and hopefully one of these days write on them!
What do you think “Christian grief” means?
What is the role of positive attitude in grief? Are the two mutually exclusive? Does feeling sad or depressed mean that you need to change your attitude? Or are those feelings just a normal reaction and does not mean you are having a negative attitude?
How does other people’s positivity make you feel in your grief? (As in, responses such as, “But you have so much to be thankful for . . . your faith, your other children, your family, your friends” etc.) Is there a place where others being positive is helpful?
What does it mean to honor God in your grief?
Tell me your thoughts!
