I have been tossing around the idea of starting another blog specifically for my grief process.....but I know I can't handle keeping two blogs up to date - I can barely handle one. So, I will be mixing my grief journaling & family updates on this blog. Any post that is specifically about my grief journal will be labeled accordingly.
My Grief Journal will be a mix of two journals I just received. One journal is full of questions to prompt me as I journal through the grief process. The other journal is a companion to a grief Bible study I will be working through. By journaling on my blog instead of privately, it will allow me to do a couple of things.....
1) I will be able to continue to openly & honestly share my journey with you.
2) I will be able to work through my thoughts & feelings as I work through each journal & Bible study.
3) It will help provide a deeper insight to you, the reader, into my grief journey. It will also help you know how to better pray for me.
If you are a widow & interested in starting a grief journal, you can purchase the Writing & Widowing: Journaling the Journey journal that I will be using by clicking Here.
If you are interested in the grief Bible study & journal, God's Healing in Grief, there are a few different places to find them. You can purchase the book on Amazon by clicking Here. You can also find the journal on Amazon by clicking Here. You can go to the publishers website & purchase both together to get a discount by clicking Here. (I found Amazon to only be $2.00-$3.00 more, but they arrived faster.)
Please pray that I will be open to God's working in my life as I continue to work through this process & travel down this journey. I know that God has called me to this for a specific purpose. I may never know or understand what that purpose is, but I will continue to trust God to shine through me. I am an unfinished masterpiece that God is still working on!
