  4. Dear Bonnie, I read your writing “You are worth loving in the New Year” and being a widow, missing my husband is a similar loss. Loss is the hardest part of life. So the love of our Father is our comfort and with us always. You sound very strong and grounded, so why don’t you explore reaching out to your birth father. It will give you closure for all the years of longing for him. If your mother is still alive, she could help you with some of the details. This journey might help you with medical issues unknown to you or it might bring joy to this man, your birth father. Consider and pray about an idea which I am sure you have thought about in the years of your prodical father.

    • Dear Connie, I’m so sorry for such a deep loss as your husband. May God’s love continue to comfort you, as the memories surface throughout this season of remembrance and grieving. Yes, sweet friend, I did try to find my father and what I learned on the journey is the story I’m sharing in the new book I’m releasing this year! I hope you will join me this year as I release these stories from my heart of God’s love and faithfulness. Have a blessed day!

  8. Bonnie,

    Thank you for sharing your heart & soul with us. In times like these we need to be reminded of the love & many promises of our most gracious savior. The devil prowls around like a roaring lion seeking to destroy us. Telling us lies & making us feel defeated & broken. God invites us to embrace our true worth. Isaiah says it best in Isaiah 61:1,3 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. After all we were made in the image of God. Let’s embrace our true worth.

    Blessings 🙂
