The Saw

hand sawGrief is a peculiar animal that seemingly has a mind of its own.  A few moments ago I was thinking about how my emotions go back and forth, back and forth, back and forth.  It reminds me of the motions that one would use with a hand saw.  Let me share what I mean:

Handsaw:Use a 3 finger grip for better control

Grief:Use a 3 finger grip for better control: Hold on to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit

Handsaw:Keep it light; pushing too hard is counterproductive

Grief: Keep it light; pushing too hard is counterproductive: some days you feel like crying; some days you want to reminisce and laugh about certain memories; other days you may not know how you feel or what you want to do. Guess what?  I’ve learned that it’s okay! Just keep moving forward at your own customized pace.

Handsaw:Vary your strokes for a clean finish

Grief:Vary your strokes for a clean finish. The Holy Spirit may impress you to speak to a friend or even a stranger; you may be impressed to talk to a counselor or a pastor; you may be impressed to write about your emotions which can be freeing. The important thing is that you keep moving forward and at your own pace for a clean finish.

“The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’  Numbers 6:26
