When grief became such a common visitor in my life, I needed to find the purpose in it. As a born-again Christian my faith has been my foundation and God has been my sufficiency. I searched Scripture and prayed endlessly to find what I could do with that which I had experienced. That is when I found 2 Cor. 1-4, “Comforting others with the comfort I’ve been comforted with…” I knew at that moment that I had found my heart beat.
Over the past 2 years Connie stood by me as I maneuvered down a dark corridor of marital separation, the death of my father and finally divorce. She remained supportive without being conditional, was reflective without being judgmental and facilitated emotional & spiritual healing while encouraging positive progress to move forward with self confidence and conviction.
The purpose of life is not to be happy - but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all
