Hope for Widows

I'm joining Joannah in this!
What are you thankful for today?
I'm thankful for the Hope that God has embedded in my heart. The other day a friend said, "When I hear all these widows stories I feel so sad."
Her comment made me realize that although my heart goes out to widows and I cry with compassion over them, I have an unwavering, inner flow of hope!
Where my friend sees sadness, I see ahead to hope! I see transformed women, who have experienced the sustaining grace of God in profound ways. Women who really live with intention and purpose!
They rejoice in God's hand on them, and they overflow with a deep yearning for heaven that ignites courageous and outrageous acts of love. (Just visit the blogs on the blogroll here and see!)
Of such is the kingdom of God!
If you'd like to join this thanksgiving project, feel free to add what you're thankful for in the comment line today or anytime during the rest of the month. God will bless--gratitude is good for everyone.
