Deciding what to do about selling "the" house is one of the hardest decisions.  When I sold the house after Jerry died, I thought it was the right thing.  It was  almost 2 years, about where you are in the time frame of all your losses.  It just seemed to me that the kids (they were 9, 12, 15) were not moving forward.  He died in the house and I felt we just couldn't get on with life because we were always thinking about his absence.   I didn't know then that we would never "not" think about his absence!  

At times I have missed the house and wished I hadn't sold it, and at other times I have been encouraged that I made the best decision that I could have made at that time.  Sometimes I think we emotionalize the place because we are missing the person(s).  Our memories are treasures and it is wonderful that we have them and can "take" them with us.  However, we want to own the memories rather than the memories having control over us.  It's a hard process.  There are no absolutes, no right or wrong choices.  Sometimes there are better choices and occasionally there are only the choices that have to be made.  

Whatever you decide to do, I pray that you will find peace and strength through your faith.  God will never leave you uncovered or unprotected.  Where ever you go, you will take the love of your friends and family with you along with all those boxes of memories and treasures!

Over the past 7 years I've had the privilege of leading GriefShare in several churches.  I have been blessed to work with people in Florida, Tennessee and North Carolina who were brave enough to seek help during their time of grieving.  It's a long and exhausting journey and no one should have to walk it alone.  Thank you for sharing your heart through your blog posts. Your transparency gives hope to others that they are not alone!  Love and prayers for you, Missy.

Missy, as always, a beautifully written testimony of God's sustaining love in times of grief.  It is so true that the strength that carries you is from God, and that is what others are seeing that is so amazing.  My pastor reminded me of a verse last week, Psalm 116:15 - "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servants."  The earthly death of believers is precious to God because it is the beginning of their eternal life with Him.  It is not only a time to rejoin those we love who have preceded us, but the beginning of our time to live with our Lord, whom we love because He first loved us. 

I am continuing to pray for you and your family.  I know your words are true, but I also know your heart misses Mike so much.  Deep grief is a sign of great love, and I know that you loved each other very much.  My love and prayers always!
