"Falling in love is the easy part.
It is quite different from being in love.
If you are blessed,
you fall in love with your spouse again a little bit every day.
Love is a choice,
a decision to love no matter what the day brings.
You are in love because you choose to be in love.
You made a promise, a commitment, to love each other."

I am not alone

My heart aches from the loss of my dear husband of 43 years.  He passed into the next life at 10:12 this morning.
The scripture from the Bible that comes to me at this time is,
Casting all your care upon Him, for He careth for you.
Jesus has promised to never leave or forsake us, so even though I feel alone, I am not.

  1. So very sorry for the loss of your beloved husband. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. And no, FlowerLady Lorraine, you are not alone.

  2. 'Emailed you a little while ago. Love and prayers to you, Lorraine. ♥♥♥

  3. I traveled this journey the past four years, Lorraine. It is hard and long but I found that over time, my work and my friends and family's support kept me from giving up or giving in. Your experience is raw and new now, but I hope you will talk about your husband and not feel that no one cares. I found that writing about our 45 year marriage helped me.
    This blog will be a good way to discuss your feelings and tell stories about your experience - and find ways to help others. Helping others keeps our lives worthwhile even when we wonder how we will go on.
    Blessings on you. You will make it. You are not alone.
