A New Season
Funny thing- I even dislike the word "widow" so why am I drawn to and soaking in this sweet powerful site [http://anewseason.net/ ] I recently discovered? I don't get it..not yet. Perhaps I will soon so let's not try to put this puzzle together today- Another Day!
“For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”
Matthew 11:30 (ESV)

[excerpts from Bonnie Vickers' blog post]
As I have walked through this grief journey of losing someone who was such a vital part of my life on earth, I have struggled with what I now place in my luggage. Sorrow. Fear. Anger. Doubt. Loneliness. Oh, and did I mention sorrow? You get the picture. These are heavy emotions. They weigh me down and take up space that does not allow me to be an effective tool in serving God. If we allow it, sorrow can be devastating. But, trust me when I say, God means for the sorrow to do great things. We will become more effective in our Christian walk than we would have been without the sorrow, IF, and only if, we allow Him to use us and our story to minister to others. Ministering to others does not necessarily have to be in form of writing or speaking, but, simply how we live through the sorrow. Praising Him even in the storm. - See more at: http://anewseason.net/widows-might/packing-up-your-sorrows/#sthash.avsAmeyC.dpuf
