I know the words "Marvelous" (as in Marv. Monday) and "Grief" are oxymorons but bare with me....
today.... I not only lost a friend, but i lost the best companion and horse a girl could ever have. his death will not go without tears but i am here to say that even though through all this rain and thunder, the Lord is still shining His light through the storm.
Why am I telling you all of this? Well, it so happens that the real mother and real father of that real family...
...just wrote a real book on the topic of loss and hope in the midst of it. Interestingly enough, this book was hot the press within the last couple of weeks. Note: as you can see, it's not just a book of enticing stories and shallow antecdotes. Their real story and their real words have been put to the test.
Perhaps you don't feel like the topic applies to you. Perhaps you just know someone facing it at a distance. Loss may happen to "other people" for a time. But one day, you'll be faced with the same range of real emotions and the real choice of where you will turn. What's Marvelous about this Monday is you too can have real hope.
Here's what real people just like you and me are saying about the book:
"It's beautifully written. I gained a lot of insight into the nuances of grief. The book shows that we all need to keep working on how we relate to those who are grieving and what we, the grieving, can or should expect from those around us--...difficult waters there...From my point of view, the book's biggest strength is the HUMANITY Glenda and Preston expressed in it..."
