#30Days30Stories Day 19

Don’t tell them if they need you to call them, just BE THERE and call them.

You can’t give them a timeline on how long they can grieve.

Don’t stop praying for them.

The house is full and the phones are ringing during the process but they need you the most when the funeral is over because that’s when it all stops.

Don’t stop caring, don’t stop praying, don’t stop calling.

You can’t say about everyone “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord” because not everyone is saved and know the Lord.

There’s certain questions you just don’t ask. There’s certain things you just don’t say.

They will probably never be the same and you have to understand that.

You’ll never know that kind of pain until you’re in those shoes so don’t speak on something you can’t relate to.

Pray for the grieving.
