A Time to Grieve and a Time to Dance
Ecclesiastes 3:1,4 "For everything there is a season... a time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance."
Why is it when we lose someone we love our life seems to stop and we move in slow motion? Meanwhile the world around us seems to be moving faster and faster. We feel like we can't keep up, we get overwhelmed and then all of a sudden our grief takes over us and we break down. Our emotions take over and we cry uncontrollably it's one of those cries that goes from our head to our toes that makes our entire body convulse. Then in the midst of your uncontrollable cry you hear, a noise, or a voice, or perhaps even a fart, that switches your tears from sorrow and sadness to joy and laughter that is almost hysterical. After about 5 minutes or so of uncontrollable laughter you finally stop and take a deep breath in and you slowly breathe out and your mind feels clearer and you can begin to hold on to rational thoughts again. I don't know if this happens to you but this is what my body goes through during a time of grief.
She loved her family and would do anything for her two daughters, her son-in-laws, her granddaughters and grandson, but most of all her husband, Bruce. Granny loved all of us with her whole heart! It broke her heart when the family didn't get along and when we all came together despite tension and family feuds going on her heart was overfilled with joy and love for her family. She just wanted her family to be happy and to love each other!
