Tuesday, 11 May 2021 – Walking with Grief

Good afternoon church family,

Today I thought I would share a poem my Spiritual Director shared with me recently,

It’s entitled “Walking with grief”

Do not hurry
as you walk with grief
it does not help the journey.

Walk slowly,
pausing often:
do not hurry as you walk through grief.

Be not disturbed
by memories that come unbidden.

Swiftly forgive;
and let Christ speak for you
unspoken words.

Unfinished conversations
will be resolved in Him.

Be not disturbed.
Be gentle with the one
who walks with grief.

If it is you,
be gentle with yourself.

Swiftly forgive;
walk slowly,
pausing often.

Take time, be gentle
as you walk with grief.
