168.0 The Front Row at a Funeral: How to Get Through the Service for Your Loved One.



Nobody wants to attend a funeral – regardless of who it is.  But – when it’s your loved one that the funeral is being scheduled for and it’s gonna be you on the front row?  Well – that’s a whole different ball game!

Is this really happening?  Did we just schedule a date for their funeral?  It all seems surreal, but no amount of protest can change the fact that it has been scheduled.

Beyond the shock of this event – how do you get through the day; the activities before and after and how do you navigate other’s emotions when you are just trying to breathe?

Today we’ll talk about how to get through the service of your loved one and if you are listening to this, you have probably already walked through this incredibly hard day.  Listen anyway because there are very practical and helpful actions for you to take in the days, weeks and months after.


WORD of the Week   the Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.  He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.  Psalm 23:1-4 (NIV)
