Grief – Blog Carnival

griefWelcome to the One Word At A Time Blog Carnival. This week’s word is: Grief.
Although this is a ‘One Word’ carnival, we have a theme for the next few weeks and the theme is “Let Go Of…” So every week, we will have a word for the week, but the theme will be letting go of that word.

My entry is below all of this intro stuff.

Below this, you’ll find a little widget called Simply Linked. All the participants in the carnival add their links to the widget and that way we can all find and read everyone’s entries. You’re welcome to join us, the carnival is open to anyone.

Don’t Take it from me….

Kiss Goodbye by Deb Watson

I know nothing about grief.

I am blessed to have never experienced first-hand a truly grief-inducing situation. This week’s topic is ‘let go of grief’ but I’ve never been there so I am not going to try to make something up.

Instead, I’d like to direct you to Deb Watson, a lady who HAS experienced grief and who has seen God’s hand at work in her through that grief.

Kiss Goodnight: The story of God’s presence through the dark night is a wonderfully detailed description of what she and her family went through when her daughter was killed in a car accident.

I may know nothing about letting go of grief, but Deb certainly does – and I absolutely recommend her book to you!

About PeterP

I am a blogger, author, stay at home dad, speaker, web hosting trainer and geek (I was so excited to get an iPad that I actually made up a song and dance about it). I am English by birth, but currently live in California with my wife and our three children. I ran a web hosting business for nine years and found that many, if not most of my clients had never learned how to use any of the functions associated with hosting so I wrote a book to try and teach just those skills. I must admit to having fallen in love with WordPress (possibly a little TOO much) and I honestly find it hard to understand why anyone would use anything different to build a site! WordPress is wonderful! My passion is to help others achieve their goals with their websites/blogs. I believe that, with a little help, anyone can have an awesome site.

    Thank you for sharing about Deb’s book and her terrible experience of losing a daughter. So sad when we lose a young person. We expect the older loved ones to go, but it is unthinkable when the young pass on through accident or illness. I am glad you never feel sorry for yourself, as that is a form of grief.

    That is what I did in my post today! Felt sorry for myself.
