Each Day Has Troubles Enough of It’s Own

Learning to be a widow is a challenge.  There is still so much paperwork, so many people and companies to notify, so many things to do.  Just learning how to do all the things Dan took care of is overwhelming. I am thankful that one child is helping me with  this.  I am so thankful that Dan and I went through all of our possessions and got rid of them while he was still alive and in good health.

The experiences I am having makes me have even more sympathy for single moms.  The road I am forced to travel is light compared to the life they have most of the time.  The only way I am going to make it through this difficult time is to practice daily Philippians 4:6 – 9, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

“Finally, brothers (and sisters), whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”  Paul goes on to say, “Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put into practice.  And the God of peace will be with you.”  This is the road to true peace.  — Anne
