Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge. Psalm 16:1 ( ESV) Becoming a widow left me feeling as vulnerable and fragile as an egg alone on the counter. During the last year of my husband’s life, I had been so strong – working, caring for him, assuming all of the responsibilities […]

…….and a time to rebuild. Ecclesiastes 3:3 (TLB) Thoughts were whirring around in my mind like the contents of a blender on high speed: how to get the monster hedge trimmed; when was that particular bill due; what was that strange noise the car made, etc., etc. And in the midst of it all […]
God saw all that He had made – and it was very good. Genesis 1:31 (NIV) I wonder, when God looked upon all He had created, if He had the thought, “I’m glad I decided to make most of the weeds green. That way they will blend into Linda’s lawn and not stand out”. Ah, […]
…..and a time to heal. Ecclesiastes 3:3 (ESV) Linda!!! Come out here!!! The tone of urgency in his voice caused me to move quickly outside to where he stood looking at the ground. Then I saw the smile and the twinkle in his eye as he pointed to the tiny green shoots. The daffodils […]
A time to weep….a time to mourn. Ecclesiastes 3:4 (ESV) After almost four years, I still cry at times. These times do not come as frequently as they once did. In the early months I was like David in Psalm 6:6, “I am weary with my mourning; every night I flood my bed with […]
Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4 (Amplified Version) When we married, I brought with me the delight of assembling jigsaw puzzles. It quickly became a hobby we enjoyed together. We could spend hours, and sometimes […]
There were shepherds staying in the fields nearby guarding their flocks of sheep. Luke 2:8 ESV It was the end of an ordinary day here at the corner house. While I was at work, hubby did the laundry and after dinner we folded clothes and watched some TV. Nothing spectacular. We talked about the […]
His life is the light that shines through the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. John 1:5 (The Living Bible) For many years our house on the corner shone forth light at Christmas. We placed a simple Nativity set out front and a brightly lit tree in the front window. It was […]
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. Psalm 23:5 (NIV) That Thursday morning dawned grey and bleak, matching my mood. Only seven months into widowhood, I was facing my first Thanksgiving without my beloved. I had insisted my daughter spend the day out of town with friends because I […]
Satisfy us in the morning with Your steadfast love. Psalm 90:14 (NRSV) He – a certified, card-carrying, morning person. Me – not so much. While my husband happily engaged in his morning routine, I clung to the covers just as long I could. As I slowly came awake, I could hear the sound of water […]
