Celebrating the Journey

Serenity Prayer

Celebrating the Journey is our community resource page. Here we will share community events, information, resources, articles and helpful tools in dealing with the stress anxiety and grief of a life limiting illness or loss of a loved one.

Everyone celebrates, grieves, and heals differently. Comfort can come in many different shapes and sizes. We have dedicated this blog to help share tools and resources to assist you as we walk this journey together.

Almost everyone has heard the Serenity Prayer or a variation of it, but what does serenity truly mean? While the meaning can vary from person to person, the practice of serenity can make a big difference in your coping with grief. Serenity can help you find inner peace. Your life is beautiful, and through “Finding Serenity’s grief support group, you can find ways to achieve healthy quality of life that allows you to get through your daily activities without undue fatigue or emotional stress.

Matthew 5:4 ESV …. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted."


Finding Serenity - Grief Support Group

Grief, a time of change.

At Serenity Point Hospice we provide a number of practical activities which are useful to people in grief. There are tools for putting your thoughts in writing, strengthening and making use of your own supportive network of people, and handling difficult times such as anniversaries and holidays.

Serenity Point Hospice has a community based Grief support group in Fulton County, IL “Finding Serenity” that meets every Wednesday at 4:00pm at the Evangelical Free Church located at 1300 E Chestnut in Canton, IL. Please call our office at 309-435-7050 for more information. It is a free service provided by Serenity Point Hospice and is open to the public.

Grief, a time of change 

Grieving is as natural as Crying when you are hurt, Sleeping when you are tired, Eating when you are hungry, Or sneezing when your nose itches. It‘s nature‘s way of mending a broken heart.

Is Grief, OK?

Grieving is a normal process we must all go through. Grief is our reaction to the overwhelming thoughts and feelings which swamp us when we experience a loss. When we think about grief, we most commonly associate it with the death of a loved one, but we also experience grief in other ways. For example, we can experience real loss during a divorce, the end of an engagement, or other breakdowns in our relationships.

How does one grieve in a healthy way?

Grief is healthy when it leads people to acknowledge, understand and accept their loss. The grieving process is hard work and filled with a lot of pain.

Message of Hope…
~My grief lies all within, And these external manners of lament Are merely shadows to the unseen grief That swells with silence in the tortured soul~
William Shakespeare

Matthew 5:4 ESV
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

John 11:25-26 ESV
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”

Loving Memory

DEAR MOM,Dear Mom, 

 I see you, but it isn’t you.
The same eyes, the same smile, the same face.

But you’re leaving me, one breath at a time,
 going to a peaceful place in your mind
 where there’s no place for me.

The arms that used to hold me are quiet at your sides.
The legs that used to take me for long walks are still.

Gone are the memories of my childhood.

You recognize me, but you no longer KNOW me.

Week by week you turn further inward,
and I can’t reach you there to bring you back.

 I can only keep watch, and laugh with you on a good day,
and retreat to my room and cry when confusion clouds your every thought.

I will love you, and care for you, and keep you safe until you leave,
And the memories I’ll have on this journey will give me peace until we’re together again
