images[9]I copied some of these scriptures from my online friend Ferree Hardy. She came up with quite a few more from her article: Wise & Beautiful Scriptures About Our Day of Death .

My times are in your hands…Psalm 31:15

…all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:16

A person’s days are determined;

    you have decreed the number of his months
    and have set limits he cannot exceed. Job 14:5


Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Luke 11:25

CruiseBereavement Cruise III
The Bereavement Cruise is set to sail March 3-10, 2019

Give yourself or someone you love A Gift of Understanding…

You are invited to join us on a Journey of Hope Healing & Health, LLC Bereavement Cruise III
Experiencing profound loss on any level presents a painful challenge, and many people are unprepared for the grieving process that follows. But a new “healing” concept, Seminars at Sea Program, led by Linda Findlay & Glen Lord hopes to give those who are suffering from grief the tools they need to better understand their pain and cope with their loss. The cruise offers a healing opportunity for anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one, no matter how much time has passed.
The bereavement cruise will provide an opportunity for our guests to better understand their grief journey, receive compassionate support and enhance their coping skills. Our workshops and activities will take place on the days that we are out to sea. There will be plenty of time to relax, spend time with others and share meals with new friends and much more. Participants will also have time to explore off ship excursions. You choose how you spend your time with us.
The Bereavement Cruise is a powerful transformational journey at sea honoring and celebrating the lives of our lost loved ones. It is an opportunity to experience an inspiring continuation of healing that will be shared in a nurturing community of people who are or have been where you are in your grief journey-no matter how much time has passed.

For more information, please contact: Linda Findlay 315-725-6132

You can register for the cruise on the event website.

widows journey 2018 retreatDo you have that need to get away? To find someone that understands the loss of a spouse like you do? It may be time to take that next step!

My widow friend, Ferree, will be a small group leader for this retreat in March. Visit her website, Widow’s Christian Place and pray if this fits into your New Year….

A weekend for women of any age who are WIDOWS
and at any point in their journey.

People say, “Isn’t it wonderful he’s with the Lord,” and you want to yell, “No! He should be here with me.”

Spend a weekend with other women who have lost their husbands to death. You will be with people who understand your journey. Come share your heart and your hurt and be encouraged as we remind ourselves that, hard as it is, our God is able. Learn from women who are where you are, women who have weathered grief and difficult times.
