First Line Friday #109

Currently, I'm reading books on grief or heaven. Grief helps me to better understand myself and heaven helps me to imagine what Curt might be experiencing now. I know he no longer needs me, but I still need him more than words can say.

The book I'm sharing today is Good Grief by Granger E. Westberg. This is a Christian non-fiction.

First Line:

God has so made us that we can somehow bear pain and sorrow and even tragedy.

My Thoughts:

This book is for anyone facing grief in any form. It may be that you are grieving the loss of a loved one or it may be the loss of a job or situation. People face grief for many reasons, yet the basic principles are the same. There are ten stages of grief. Not everyone will experience them all, but everyone experiences most of these, although not necessarily in the same order.

This book is easy to read and only 80 pages long. If you have just lost a loved one who is close to you, time might be in short supply. Especially at the beginning when surrounded by family and friends. This is a great book to read during that time if you are able to concentrate well enough. Otherwise, read it once life begins to slow down again. Regardless, I'm certain this book will help anyone who has experienced a loss.
