Weeping with Those Who Weep (on a Day of Celebration) — 7 Comments

  1. Thank you for this beautiful post. My family is among those weeping right now… I miscarried our much loved and greatly anticipated baby on Monday. Burying our precious baby girl between the planned Christmas celebrations was not in our plans! Thankful we can trust that God’s plans are greater than ours…. But it still hurts.

  2. This sounds like a great New Year’s tradition! You might also try discussing these tribulations as a family before and/or after prayer; prayers and well-wishing are excellent, but I personally find these actions to be a bit trivial if the person praying expresses sympathy, but doesn’t try and empathise.
