One of my favorite books is written by someone I have great respect for—the late Billy Graham. In his book, Nearing Home, which he penned at the age of 93, Billy shared some interesting insights on aging. Included were his thoughts on grief.
Billy begins by saying that grief will eventually come to all of us so it is best to prepare for it. And when you live into your 90’s you have had to say good-bye to many friends and family members.
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die. Ecclesiastes 3:1-2
Billy Graham shared four ways that he dealt with the death of his beloved wife Ruth.
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous hand.
As always would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section. #BillyGraham #John3:16 #SalvationFreeGift
