WOW WHAT WE DO FOR GRIEF....              

Just got an email from a Chinese Friend who is a surgeon and lost his beloved

about 18mths  ago.  I would like to honour him for his work.  He has volunteered in  Cancer clinics

and  helped another clinic develop new ways of healing cancer patients.

Recently  he began volunteering in the outback of Australia without any pay.  He said it kept his mind

off his loss. That he still missed her so much in those quiet moments.

Asking me what is the best way to overcome the pain and sorrow?  Hoping too

that I was feeling better.

Its harsh country out there  with  virtually no internet access.

He and some other folks in the pictures put together  this video  where

he had been working.  Telling me that perhaps it will bring good and beautiful

memories for me too.  He said “Memories are all we have to cherish.

But it is also our strength and life we must learn to savour.

That is an amazing story and very neat that he has been doing volunteer work. I feel that it is all to honor is beloved wife.  The sweet fond memories are all that we have, along with knowing that if we live our life for christ we will get to spend eternity with them. I have been researching mission work overseas to take leave from my job and go work for a long period of time. Working all day everyday at the current job just makes your mind dwell on all that is going on and seems that it always tries to go back to negative thoughts versus positive.  Thank you for sahring this...

I enjoyed the Youtube clip and the music.  That presentation was so typical of life in the Northern Territory. I guess volunteering in the bush is one way of losing yourself in work and helping to get yourself away from that circular thinking that comes as a result of loss.  Thanks for posting it.
