Puzzle Pieces

There is something so healing about finding community that you can share the deepest parts of your heart with and it has begun happening in our grief group.  We formed an infant/baby loss group and while our group is small we have started opening up and finding the small pieces of our tragedies that match up like puzzle pieces in this big gigantic {messy} puzzle.  All the broken edges that feel like they will never fit into anything again start finding their place in a world that was not meant to be broken into these pieces.

God never intended for us to experience grief.  He never wanted his perfect world to be broken with sin but once it was he knew he had to work for the good of those that loved him.  That is when the puzzle pieces started fitting back together.  In grief group we are slowly, very slowly putting the pieces back together.  We get to experience something other than shock, anger, frustration, sadness, guilt, despair, or loneliness.  There is finally someone that feels what we feel and understands us.

I am thankful for the women that I have met through this group.  I am thankful that we get to share in this healing together.
