Post “HOPE FOR THE DAY” from
August 22, 2005

When struggling through the emotions of loss, nothing seems
to feel right. No matter how hard we try to enjoy the
blessings of each day, there is a gnawing voice that continues
to remind us that something is very wrong. How can we get
that feeling of peace and contentment back when our world
has been turned upside down?

Learning to live again following loss is like learning to
speak a new language. The words are not only spoken
differently, but they have different meaning, too. Not
everyone understands, and sometimes it’s hard to explain
what you are saying. The rainbow in the sky is still
beautiful following a loss, but is has a far different
meaning than before. It now means so much more. The
rainbow is not just a painting in the sky; it now gives hope
and comfort to the hurting heart.

It takes time to learn how to speak the new language following
loss. There will be times when the words come out all wrong.
Some days there will be nobody that will understand. Often,
there will be the need of a friend to provide help as you
struggle to find new meaning out of the ordinary things in life.

Give yourself as much time as you need. You will begin to
hear laughter and the sounds of joy again. Yes, everything
seems so different right now. But, not everything has changed.
God’s promises remain faithful and true. The sunrise
continues to usher in a brand new day. The flowers bloom
bright and beautiful following the rain. Hope will place a
new song on your heart! --Clara Hinton

“I will live one day at a time knowing that I will eventually
walk into the sunshine again.” --Clara Hinton

“The eternal God is thy refuge and underneath are the
everlasting arms.” --Deuteronomy 33:27
