The Hurt and The Healer

Posted on May 23, 2012 at 6:46pm 2 Comments

This song fits me right now. It gives me hope. I know that part of me is gone, but I'm still alive. And God is healing my brokenness.


The question that is never far away

The healing doesn't come from the explained

Jesus please don't let this go in vain

You're all I have

All that…

I'm so sorry for your loss, I lost my wife in February after a two year battle with lung cancer, (she never smoked a day in her life) it has been a hard adjustment and many, many lonely moments. It was very hard for me just to go to a store we use to shop in together. Your two boys are beautiful and will be a great comfort to you. I also had been with my wife  for twelve years and after her death I complained that it was too short of time, (we should have grown old and died together) but a friend of mine commented to me that it could have been 5 years in stead and it made me realize how lucky I was to have this beautiful, wonderful woman in my life for as long as I did. Your pictures are great, continue to keep your faith and be good to yourself, you have experienced a dreadful loss, but know that the people on WV care about you dearly and are here for you. God Bless.

Welcome Brittney:  I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you found your way to this site. I know you will find the same comfort and understanding here at Widowed Village that I have. In the beginning I just read the blogs and posts and lurked in chat. Post and join us in chat when you feel comfortable. It is nice to be among people who "Get It".
