Publisher's Description

Vincent van Gogh's last words resonate with many grievers this holiday season: 'La tristesse durea--the sadness will never go away.'No, it will not go away. But it will change.Grief can be overwhelming, and it is especially intense during the holidays--those weeks that have always been spent in preparation and anticipation with a loved one who has been lost. While the world seems to be moving forward and celebrating life, grievers face a season of darkness and loss.For you--or as gift for someone you know who is grieving--Harold Ivan Smith guides the reader beyond the darkness with illustrations and insights that emphasize God's ability to transform the holidays into a time of grace and healing.
