Still struggling with loss...

I am still struggling with the loss of my beloved Bill.  Sometimes, it seems to be getting better and then I hit a slump where I miss his presence so much, I can hardly stand it.  I know he is with the Lord and not suffering any longer but when you have been a caretaker for 7 years, it is quite disconcerting when you feel you no longer have a purpose in life.
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...

I love the words to "Have a Little Talk with Jesus" and I love the Oakridge Boy's rendition of it!  Beverly, at How Sweet The Sound, posted it yesterday and I can hardly keep my hands and feet still when listening to this one-ha!  I listened this morning and feel so joyful in my heart and mind.

I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.  God uses anyone and everyone as his instrument to spread the word of Jesus.  Songs have been a part of spreading and listening to the word of God since time began.  The Psalms (Psalm 51:7) were songs written by David and all these many centuries later, here we are learning God's word through them.

Life is awesome, isn't it?  God can heal us from great loss, great illness, great sins.  Isaiah 1:18 "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow"   through confession and inviting Jesus into your sincere heart.

God's mercy is endless.  What would make your heart sing this morning??

This was taken at Huntington Beach, SC last evening by my Daughter Barbara.  It is a Green Heron.  I see God in every creature and it makes my heart sing!

Have a most blessed Sunday, Much love,

My Christian heart to yours....
