We looked at emotions, feelings, behaviour, thought life and health/physical sensations which grief provokes. As you can imagine it was a bit of a tear jerker....but the good news is that I'm amongst people who (those I didn't already know) have very quickly become friends because we are all on the same painful road....
So, it's back for "Experiencing the pain of grief (part #2)" next week....oh joy !
3 things I read yesterday which I find incredibly provocative :-
- "Joy is not the absence of pain but the presence of God" (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin - whoever he is !)
- "To have life in focus we must have death in our field of vision" (Nigel McCulloch-Bishop of Manchester)
- "Come to me, all you who are burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light" (Jesus of Nazareth)
