Words are the topic of today’s Capture Your Grief project. There are no words to express how much I love and miss Faith. As soon as I read the topic for today, I immediately knew how I would do my blog post for today. I haven’t written in my Faith journal since her birthday and this gave me the perfect opportunity to do so. I will be writing more often to her and will also be writing in a matching journal that I have for Joy.
I wrote to Faith in our journal and told her how much I love and miss her. I also told her about her sister and how she is doing. Writing in this Faith journal has been a great healing tool for me and has given me a new creative outlet as well.
While I know I can never really truly express in words what I feel for Faith, writing is a great way to at least begin to get my feelings out for her. My Faith journal is a place I feel like we come to meet when I write.
So today, I urge you to write something down…your thoughts for the day, an idea you have, a note to a friend, a to do list, anything at all…expressing your thoughts using words is very helpful in many ways. If you are going through a grief journey, like myself, or if you are simply planning your day. God gave us words to use in a positive way. Words are very powerful. I challenge you today to write something down that has special meaning to you, as I did to Faith in our journal.
