words are hard to express today. I keep searching for them, but only by
writing down what is bothering me will I get through the day.
feel at times as if You have gone somewhere. Is there someone else occupying
Your time? Can I have Your attention for a moment? It wonít take long to write down
what is bothering me.
friends donít like to see me grieve. It bothers me as well. I sometimes feel
like a child looking for a guiding hand in order to get through so much
heartache and pain. You are the only true guide and help during a time like
many days seem the same. This house is so quiet. I miss seeing Linda each
morning. She was the flower You gave to me. I know I have told You this so
many times. I also know You want me to share this with You.
I look outside, Your tears are falling today. They are watering the garden I
am building in memory of Linda. Thank You for reminding me You are there. I
know You remember Linda. She was faithful to You. Please help me to not give
up. Sometimes I feel I easily can.

lost a loved one. Please donít let all of this be for nothing. Please use me
in some small way to encourage others. Help me to go beyond myself by
understanding what it means to lose someone and to reach out and to let others
know there is hope.

seems so bleak. We were created to need one another. No one can survive alone.
You promise to mend the broken hearted and to hear the prayers of those who
are humble before You. This is my prayer to You today. I am doing the best I
can to survive each moment. Would You please grant a bit of encouragement
today? It is easy to be down because of so many tears.
have come to see how weak I am. No matter how much I wanted Linda to live, You
had other plans. Sometimes it is a mystery when it comes to how You do things.
All I know is that You are aware of everyone who is mourning. Everyone is
important to You. Please donít forget me today as I blend in with so many
other people who donít know what I am going through. Please help others who
are also hurting. What I am experiencing is not just about me. Perhaps in some
small way I can let others know I care. Well, as You can see the tears are
falling and I have to stop and wipe them.
You for what I have learned. Thank You for the friends I have made. Thank You
for just being there.
