"Grief is leftover love."
It’s okay to miss them. It’s okay to wish you could hold them. Be near them.
Grief is leftover love. It reminds us that they are real and with us still. You may grieve them your entire life because you love them your entire life.
May you allow Jesus to hold you as you grieve. Grief can be a lonely cave, but he wants to light candles all throughout the inside. He wants to illuminate your hurt with love and tender healing. He wants you to be able to feel again.
May this be a season of honor, and surrender. Give the pain and hurt to our Lord, all while having the courage to honor the love you have welled up within you. May they pay tribute, may they illuminate any darkness you feel.
Grief comes in many forms. The loss of a baby, a child, a teenager, a grown child, a friend, a relative, a lover. Grief comes in loss of position, territory, position, ground, authority, home, and safety. Sometimes grief lingers a very very long time, because there is leftover love. He sees you there. He loves you. He is with you.
As everyone started moving their offices, schools and well entire lives into their homes, I thought so much about candles. I just thought how much of a need there was for a reminder of God and His light. I saw a need for space to be separated for prayer. I pray that these candles help transform your home into a mini sanctuary. May these candles fill your home with the tenderness of Jesus’s love.
These 100% soy wax candles have a lead free cotton wick and are a 9 oz pour. They measure 2.86” in diameter and are 3.5” in height. These candles were hand-poured by Kristina at @ivoryflamecandle. Her candles are all over my house and have always been my favorite. And now they can be all over your house! Her work is the absolute best. I was thinking of her so much as the quarantines began and events started to be canceled. I met Kristina at a vendor event and we have become close friends. She sells candles at different weekend farmer's markets and outside of that as a florist for weddings and large events. I knew most of her gigs would be canceled during this crazy time. I really wanted to support her little business, especially since there was such a need for her craft. I love her work more than anything and truly believe you will too! If you are interested in different scents or sizes, check Kristina out at @ivoryflamecandles on Instagram. I am so excited that she also is now on Etsy!!
