Psalm 23:1-6

 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.  He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake.  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.  Thou dost prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; Thou hast anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

      I lost a loved one not too long ago, but it still takes a heavy toll on me. Whilst reading thy verses, I found comfort, deep in thy heart, made with God. I really felt like he had given me a comfort shawl to let me know that she is smiling down on me, is proud of me, and still lets me remember her welcome saying to me: "Hi, baby"

      I have been wanting to know what the Bible says about grief and loss for the entire 2 month period that I have been subjected to it. I have a Bible. With everything that I have been feeling and thinking, I allowed its size to intimidate me a bit. I found this thru a link on another hub. I so appreciate you posting this.
