Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentines Day. The day that has been set aside to show love to the ones we love. For widows it can be a sad, rough, lonely day. Some even are angry and are upset when they see others loving each other. As for me, I love LOVE! Don't get me wrong seeing the posts may make me a little sad because my lover is no longer here on earth but I’m a girl who loves to see love expressed.

I always like to acknowledge God and how amazing He has been and is to my sons and I on this grief journey. I’m so grateful to God for who He is in our lives, for all that He’s doing and for all that He continues to do. I couldn't even imagine trying to make it through life without God. On September 7, 2015 our lives changed forever. We had no choice ...

Raise your hand if you've experienced this since the loss of your loved one. I too have went through the same thing. It seems that it is part of the experience of losing a loved one. Unfortunately I've had so many people leave my life and my sons lives.

I'm not sure if they can't deal with seeing you grieve, if they were really only my husband's "friend", or what. At ...

Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV [5] Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. [6] In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

For the first time ever I asked God to heal my sons and I. Before last night I had never asked that. I've prayed to God to help us through. I've asked God to give us strength to keep going. I've asked God to be a Father to my sons. But never had I prayed to God to heal us. I'm sure you're wondering WHY. Let me explain.

When you lose a loved one, one of your greatest fears is forgetting that person. You never want to forget him/her. S...

Happy Fathers Day to you Pastor Ronald Shaw! You truly were an amazing Dad to our sons. I used to tell them all the time how I wish I had a father like you. You would be so proud of your sons I know. They are doing amazing things. A lot of that has to do with you Fathering them! My heart breaks for them I can't lie about that. But with Gods help they'll make it! Miss you and Love you forever!

The day my life changed

September 7, 2015…..

It was Labor Day, a holiday. The boys and I were at home because we were out of school. It was overcast outside, I remember. The sun wasn’t out. We woke up as usual but the day was strange it seems. It was just very different. We relaxed and were waiting for my sister and her family to come by so we could start barbequing. They came over and my brother in law begin to cook out on the deck.
