It’s that time of the week where we write straight from the heart for just five minutes …. this weeks thought is on Loss.
I once was lost! Lost in hopelessness and heartache. I felt the loss deeply – a gaping hole seemed to exist within me. I wondered how I could go on existing with this emptiness and brokenness inside of me. Loss is hard and loss hurts .. any kind of loss is devastating and sad. Loss of a loved one, loss of an opportunity or loss of a relationship. When we lose something dear we feel empty, barren and alone. There is a time to grieve, to feel deeply and a time to let go. No-one knows the time that loss or grief takes. For every one it is different and at some point we all seem to take this road of loss. It is impossible to live in this world and not feel loss at some level. I have experienced so many kinds of loss….. loss of my little ones childhood as the kids have grown up, loss of a nephew, of a marriage, the loss of dreams and things hoped for … BUT in all this loss there is an opportunity to be found. To be found and covered by a spectacular and amazing grace and immersed in a never ending love. A love that is deep, expansive and ever – embracing. I once was lost but now am found. … was blind but now I see … that hope out there on the horizon … twas grace that taught my heart to fear and grace my fears relieved …. my chains have gone, I’ve been set free!!
