“Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines….yet I will rejoice in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation” —(Habakkuk 3:17-18 NLT). When a loved one dies or you suffer a setback or loss, rejoicing in the Lord may be the last thing you feel like doing. This book was written through the tears and pain of loss, in the first two months after the author’s wife Barbara died. Yet as James Thornber shares in this moving account of his own journey, the choices you make determine how fast and how well you heal. In addition to sharing words of wisdom and sympathy, this book provides you with helpful hints that will lead towards your healing and recovery. And if you’ve ever wondered what to say to someone who has recently suffered loss, this book will assist you in offering support in a way that is helpful.
