JOY in the JOurneY

I became a widow at the age of 36 with three beautiful young daughters to raise, and through it all God has continued to bless us. I know He has great plans for me and my girls...following Him and enjoying life! -Carrie

Good Wednesday to you, and as you know, Wednesdays here on the WCP are for widows' stories. Today I'd like to introduce you to my friend Carrie and her inspiring blog, Finding JOY in our JOurneY.

You'll find out about the exciting upcoming event in her life and see how sorrow and love can co-exist. And if you read her very first blog post (click here), you'll find the great attitude she chose for dealing with widowhood. And here's another key to her attitude and blessing--prayer!

The girl in the wheelchair is Carrie and Mike's oldest daughter--click here to learn about her condition. I hope these links will give you a good idea of who Carrie is and that above all, she yearns to glorify God through every chapter of her life. I know she'd love for you to browse through her blog. Leave a comment too---comments are blessings to us bloggers!

Here's how Carrie introduces herself:
I am a follower of Jesus Christ and I believe that without Him, I could not be who I am today. I am the proud mommy of three daughters, ages 12, 7, and 3. At the age of 36, nearly 2 years ago, I became a widow. Mike and I had been married for over 14 years. Through seasons and circumstances in my life, I have grown deeper and deeper in my faith. My husband died in a car accident about three miles from our hometown, after he drove through Joy, IL....he went to live in the JOY of heaven promised to us through Jesus Christ. Since his passing, our girls and I have transitioned in every aspect of our lives, because he was our team leader. Without him...we had to realize Jesus is and always will be our LEADER~

I praise the Lord for Carrie and I'm so happy to see the beauty God is raising from the ashes of her loss. I hope you'll visit her blog today and feel the same.
