Going on a trip

The kids and I are going on a trip to VA. This trip is meant to bless those who have lost a loved one as of last year. Lose is difficult to think about. However, it stirs and helps us to grow no matter how it makes us feel.
The road that we go down during our heart aches is so unpredictable, yet in the end the Lord really does have a purpose . We may only see lines like a map and not know what direction we are to go in.

But He knows.
I am so greatful for His cleansing power. That he washes me white as snow.

So during my trip I will bless the widow. I will lend a ear. I will shed some tears for the heart that is longing for it's partner. I will hug the parents that have lost a son. I will look into the eyes of a brother who has lost a sibling.

I hope that you all can bless someone who needs a hug, or someone who just needs to talk.

Blessing the widow is the heart of God. As you pour out refreshing waters, may you also find yourself refreshed! Love you!

Finding ways to bless others is so rewarding, and especially widows and widowers! May you find much joy in this weekend, and be refreshed in ways that you least expect!
