A tip for dealing with grief

 

Good morning dear Ladies,

I hope your day is a good one today.

I have some grief tips to share sent to me by Dotti.  These are good and will help us all as we live and grow through our grief. I will share them one or two at a time. Today’s tip is about being thankful.

******

Ways to have a good mourning and, in the process, help you heal the wound of grief.

 

1. Cultivate the attitude of gratitude.

No matter what has happened to you, there are still many things for which you can be thankful.  Give thanks every day. 

Identify areas of your life that are still good and enriching, such as friends, family, meaningful employment, health, warm memories, etc.

Cultivating the attitude of gratitude is a way of viewing your cup as half full, rather than half empty.

***

Take the sweet gratitude journal that we were given and write at least one thing each day that you are thankful for. It can be that you got out of bed this morning, the sweet songs of the birds, seeing a butterfly, enjoying a good meal, the love of friends and family, FNF. There has to be something in your life that you are thankful for, write it down, seeing it will bless your heart.

~ Remember ~

 

And everything, whatever you do in word or deed,

do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,

giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.

Col_3:17 

 

Let the peoples give thanks to You, O God;

let all the peoples praise You.

Psa_67:5

 

Praise ye the LORD.

O give thanks unto the LORD;

for he is good:

for his mercy endureth for ever.

Psa_106:1 

 

Finally, brethren/sisters,

whatsoever things are true,

whatsoever things are honest,

whatsoever things are just,

whatsoever things are pure,

whatsoever things are lovely,

whatsoever things are of good report;

if there be any virtue,

and if there be any praise,

think on these things.

Php_4:8 

 

Love and hugs to all of you,

Rainey
