Grieving a Loss

I've been grieving the loss of a very special friendship for a couple months now.  I grieve because this friendship was formed in such a special and unique way.

How do you say goodbye to a friendship so true and pure? We talked for hours on end on anything and everything and sometimes nothing.  After all these years of keeping in touch, it comes to an end.

Were you a seasonal friend?
No, I know you were not, because no matter what was going on in your life or mine we connected.

Were you a friend for a reason?
I think so, I grieve because God allows individuals paths to cross and bonds to form that reveals His beauty, purity, love and holiness.

Were you a friend for a lifetime?
Unfortunately it looks like the answer is no; this grieves me.

It's my fault, I could have handled situations differently, but didn't exactly know how so I did the best I thought to protect you and to protect me too. 

May God continue to bless your pathways and guide your steps.  May His grace and mercies continue to cover you all the days of your life, my once so dear friend. You were true and sincere.

Lord give me the grace to let go and let it be in Jesus name I pray.........Amen.

  2. I lost a very special friendship too; not to the eventualities of 'out of sight' nor personal differences, just the painful sting death! I still grieve the loss and I keep praying for strength for all his loved ones...

  3. Amen! It's not easy when a close friendship ends but we never know what the final result will be—you may even reconnect in the future. I know this pain well and know that God will give you the grace you need to let it go. *hugs*

    1. It's not easy at all but you are right, we never know what the final result or future holds. Thank you GNG.

  4. Hmmm.... It seems we've all been there. Roads cross and then part; the consolation is if we all remain in Christ, we'll be forever joined.

    1. Amen, I like that...."If we all remain in Christ, we'll be forever joined." Quite comforting/settling to reflect on that thought. Thank you In The Midst

  5. I grieved several friendships as well ... but I think in the end God only keeps people in our lives who are suppose to remain in it.

    Thinking of you and sending lots of positive thoughts your way!
