new life Thoughts on Grief

Doors – G-d’s Eternal Themes

Certain themes have been staples in my life.

A conversation with Renee Heart Tokens sparked this thought process…

When I wrote “The Door” I was in the throes of my greatest depression. My younger sister Dana had passed away four months before from cancer and I mistakenly thought that grief was something I should ‘get over’ . I couldn’t figure out why I was still so sad.

I had placed myself in a box of despair. One month before the thought crossed my mind that driving over a bridge would get rid of the pain. Reason prevailed and I sought counseling. That simple action brought me out of the great depression and gave me tools to deal with grief and many other challenges that I would face in years to come.

I call that counselor my angel in disguise.

Back to my original thought: Boxes and Doors. G-d’s Themes.

G-d’s themes are eternal.

Prayers answered two ways:


or “Wait,

I have something better

in store for you!”

NO is not an option!

There are NO closed doors

only opportunities to turn around

change course

find one’s calling

real purpose

live out loud

choose good

be positive

make a difference

Live in a place of LOVE.

Now my box lid is not closed-

no more claustrophobia.

Whenever I feel boxed in

I remember that

My box has No Walls!

When doors seem closed,

I remember to turn around

so I can discover what

G-d has in store.

When your doors seem closed,

when your box closes in,


No walls and turn around!
