Here's A Question for You

Tuesdays are dedicated to Single Living Skills so send in your handy household tips, recipes, directions for plunging the toilet and all the other fun stuff you get to do now. They can be serious and of actual help, or you can vent a little.

But instead, could I ask you a couple questions today?
1. After you've been through a grief support program, then what? Do you feel like all your questions have been answered and you're equipped to handle everything? Or, would a widows or singles fellowship/support group be a good follow-up?
2. Do you think a Bible study about a biblical perspective on widows would help?

I'm not sure why I'm asking--I don't really have any intentions or ideas, I'm just wondering.
I'd love to hear your opinions, and also feel free to contact me with other questions, concerns, prayer requests, etc.

  1. There are so many new things I get to do now.Not that I signed up for any of these,but if they are to get done,guess who has to do them.My back is telling me that I am carrying tuff which I usually didn't have to.BOO HOO!As for meals,I am trying to package things into meal sized servings and freezing it for later.

  2. Hmm, interesting questions. Post support group, I still got broadsided by unexpected grief. I'd go to a place where my husband and I visited and get barraged with memories. It might be good to have an outlet for sharing these experiences.

    I don't want to wear the label of, "Widow." It defines my marital status but not who I am as a person. It tells someone who once loved me has left this life.

    First and foremost, I'm a child of the Most High God, and He has a purpose and a plan for my life. He gives beauty for ashes and the oil of joy for mourning.

    Healing takes time, but it's worth the journey.

  3. Ruth you have such a good attitude. It's hard, there's a lot to adjust to, and a lot to learn. Be careful of your back--and the ouches it's trying to tell you about, but keep on learning. The meal sized freezer meals are a great idea!
    Susan, Your words will resonate with many! Labels! Widow doesn't fit, it's kind of like when shopping and you find something marked "Irregular." Far better, like you said, to wear label of who we are in Christ and understand His purpose and plan! Thank you so much for sharing!
