NATIONAL GRIEf Awareness Day- VIGIL

And God Said...

I said, “God, I hurt.”

And God said, “I know.”

I said, “God, I cry a lot.”

And God said, “That is why I gave you tears.”

I said, “God I am so depressed.”

And God said, That is why I gave you sunshine.”

I said, “God, life is so hard.”

And God said, “That is why I gave you loved ones.”

I said, “God, my loved one died.”

And God said, “So did mine”

I said, “God, it is such a loss.”

And God said, “I saw mine nailed to a cross.”

I said, “God, but your loved one lives.”

And God said, “So does yours.”

I said, “God, where are they now?”

And God said, “Mine is on my right and yours is In the light”

I said, “God, it hurts.”

And God said, “I know.”

Wednesday August 30


Wednesday, August 30th, every year is National Grief Awareness Day.

We, at Gospel Light Ministries, would like to extend a short Vigil Service, this Wednesday, August 30, 2023 at 6:00 PM to allow all who are grieving, known and unknown reasons to others, to join together in prayer and spiritually support one another. Grief can be very personal. One can be open or as silent about their grief, but all will be uplifted and encouraged by one another!

Come join us! Your loss is as private as you wish to keep it. Bring your friends and or family that may wish to support you.

There is nothing more soothing and healing than the collective strength and power of prayer!

 

HISTORY OF GRIEF AWARENESS DAY:

Angie Cartwright is the founder of National Grief Awareness Day, occurring on her mother's birthday of August 30 of each year.

Angie has experienced the pain of profound loss many times in her life starting with the loss of her baby sister when Angie was just a small child, the loss of her newlywed husband from a tragic car accident at age 21, and the loss of her mother from an accidental overdose in 2010.

Learning the hard way that grievers are often misunderstood, Angie is committed to help change how our culture understands and views grief. She expertly coaches and comforts people all around the world through social media, her website, and her Grief Release Course, to help thousands of grievers find solid footing once again.

"I finally realized that there was only one thing I could ever do to be free, shares Angie. "It was to embrace my humanness."

This is the little girl many of you may remember from TV programs such as "Lost in Space" and "The Danny Thomas Show" or Brigitta von Trap in "The Sound of Music."
