I find it hard to fit in anywhere now that I am one. God is providing much for me...work, earnings and sustaining me just as he always has. But my feelings of loneliness are quite overwhelming at times and I break down. All this is normal in the healing process of losing a loved one but even though we know and understand the process, it does not make it any easier. I keep as busy as I can and I love gardening and picked my first tomato from the vine on Sunday!
Today, I did not have to work so I decorated the front of the house with flags and red, white and blue flowers. I am slowly getting back into reading again and am enjoying a new book and of course never get tired of reading the Bible.
I find myself thinking a lot on our role as servants of the Lord and want to serve wherever God would use me. I am most gratified when serving others for good. (References 2 Cor 4:5, Philippians 6-7, Mark 9:35, 1 Peter 4:10 and John 15:12-13)
How are you handling your losses? I hope you are getting out and about and serving the Lord in some capacity. Sometimes, it is as simple as sharing a favorite dish that you cook with neighbors. Do whatever you can to help others and in the same way, you also help yourself. I am still taking one day at a time..... as the song says.
Much love to my faithful followers. I am hoping to get back into the habit of posting more. Thank you.
My Christian Heart to yours...
