  10. Ginger,

    So sorry for the loss of your beloved husband and father. It is only through God that we can get through some trials. I believe that God allows us to go through trials so we can be there and encourage others. May God give you the strength, courage and contentment to get through each day. You are an encouragement to others here and especially myself.
    Blessings 🙂

    • Thanks Beth! Absolutely! I take to heart the verse that talks about us comforting those with the comfort we have received from THE Comforter! Our pastor often says – “God doesn’t waste pain…” Thanks for the encouragement friend! XO
