When There is a Death in the Family

Last week was a busy week. An uncle of my husband passed away. Life has once again interrupted our schedules to teach us lessons we can never learn unless we experienced this season of our life.

Death is a subject matter  you can never fully teach, yes you can discuss it with your kids but the reality only sinks in when one goes through it. Grief and regret are emotions that one goes through in this tough situation and we only learn to deal with is when we face it head on. We learn and  talk about how we should live with the days that God gives us. We sympathize and care for the ones who are grieving.

This is also the perfect time to reflect on each of our lives. We don’t know how much time we all have left. While there is an opportunity, why don’t we refocus our lives to what matters most in the end. What legacy do we want to leave behind? What message does our life send to those around us? Are there any words left unspoken? Are we ready for eternity with God or are we still unsure?

Death is an end to a life on earth but it can also bring new beginnings to those left behind.
