The Paradox of Grieving, Journal entry from Song of My Heart

by Song of My Heart

Mourning a loss but celebrating a victory

The world keeps spinning but yet time stands still

Seeing more clearly even though tears blur my vision

Feeling the need to grieve alone and also feeling the need to be surrounded by family

Having dulled but yet heightened senses

Being heavenly minded but being more intentional about living on earth

Reminiscing over the past and clinging to hope for tomorrow

Incredible sadness and unbelievable joy

Considering the promise filled sunrise and also the finality of a peaceful sunset

Feeling closer to my loved one that has passed when we have never been further apart

Weeping, mourning, laughing and rejoicing

A mortal body dies and an immortal spirit lives forever
