Grief and depression go hand-in-hand-grief naturally triggers depression; it is a normal part of bereavement.
So what does life look like for the depressed, grieving person?
The answer, for this mourning mother, is currently unraveling in my soul.
And so, I cling. I cling to the hope for restoration of life once again:
Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once again. -Psalm 71:20-21
May it be so!
