Item description for A Healing Year: Daily Meditations for Living with Loss by Alaric Lewis...

When a loved dies, those left behind experience the stages of grief. But everyone's experience is different and lasts a different amount of time. Author Alaric Lewis lost his mother when he was only seven; he is also, among many other things, a cancer survivor. In A Healing Year, Lewis offers a brief essay and either a Scripture passage or inspirational quote for every day of the year. He touches upon: *Grieving as a life-long process *The importance of having friends to support us *How we keep our loved one's memories alive by choosing to live for God *Why difficult times should be welcomed *How wrong turns often lead us into God's grace *How God waits to fill the emptiness of loss Writing in a style that is conversational and yet easy to understand, Lewis believes that God is active in our lives in many ways. It is only with God's abundant love that we can begin to truly heal.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Healing Year: Daily Meditations for Living with Loss?

God's Abundant Help  Oct 20, 2007
A Healing Year opens with the information that Alaric Lewis's mother died when he was seven years old, a fact that is revisited throughout the book, each time from a slightly different angle, but always in relation to the many facets of loss. The book is divided by month, with a short reflection for each day, all beginning with a quotation from scripture or an author such as Oscar Wilde ("Where there is sorrow there is holy ground") or Ralph Waldo Emerson (We boil at different degrees").

Lewis focuses on awareness of God's presence in our daily lives as a way of understanding grief and the toll death takes on the living. If we begin to listen to that presence, see God in others, and feel Him in our hearts, he writes, "the sheer suffering and pain of loss can be transformed in our hearts. With God's abundant help, we can begin to truly heal: one day at a time."

The entries cover a range of topics related to loss, grief, and healing. For example, Lewis recommends laughter, cautions against denial, supports the concept of "offering it up," and suggests ways to help those who are suffering. Above all, he urges us to trust in God's mercy. At times Lewis carries a theme over several days, as the feeling of emptiness experienced by Abraham, Ruth, and David in Matthew 1: 2-6. Whereas these three were at times unsure of God's presence, love, and compassion, Lewis writes, we have the reality of Jesus.
