Yesterday we celebrated our mothers, but I also remembered by grandmother’s home going just a year ago.  It was my mom who jogged my memory, and all the thoughts of sweet times in Grandma’s farmhouse flooded in.

Then, as I was going through my email box, I found an email from a woman named Karen Mulder who has a ministry called Wisdom of the Wounded.  Months ago, Karen asked for permission to use a devotion I wrote after my grandmother’s death in response to the way a friend reached out to me.

Here’s a link to Karen’s radio show containing my devotion, but I urge to you spend time on her website.  Having lived what’s likely to be about 1/2 of my life, if I live to the ripe old ages that my grandmas reached, I’ve experienced some loss.  I know you have too.  Karen’s ministry is to those in grief and to those who care for the grieving.  It’s such a needed ministry with such loving comfort and wise advice.

Instead of leaving a comment here today, would you take a few moments to share one the posts that helps you most on your Facebook page today?  Imagine the wave of compassion we could start!  (Melanie, I hope you’re reading this and know you were the beginning of the wave, friend.)
