Hi, Donna (c: God bless you (c: I am sorry that you are suffering. We can trust our Father to do all He pleases with us, now.
Jesus has died, but all the good He has done has continued with us. Like this, however your husband has been truly in God's will with you, this will continue to do you good. His example can still feed you how to live with God and love all people.
I have someone very special to me, now, and I encourage her to be with God and be ready for if I might die. Be ready. God is able to bring her to so much more and better than me!

Donna I'm going to share something that will seem impossible and it is apart from the life of Christ within us.
There's no way to minimize the sense of loss you must feel, how long & alone your nights must be and your wound that the curse of the fall has painfully dealt you.
What you can be in even all of this is grateful for what's missing, but not for the fact that it is missing. If you'd never had known good days than this pain would not be so acute. Don't be reminded, actively remember. Don't dwell on what's missing but on what is still with you and can never be taken from you. Let your pain be a memorial of the goodness God has shown you and your healing will break forth with power. God loves you, abide in his love.

Donna, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know that this is a grief that will take a while to recover from. & it's a fact that there will be an ache that remains for your dear husband. The only true help any of us can offer you is our prayers to our Heavenly Father. He is the all knowing God that can heal your hurt like no other. I pray that He will heal the sorrow you feel. I pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort you in this awful time. Maybe you will get some peace in knowing that the people here care about you & will be praying for you.

Donna, this will be hard for you for a long time, how long depends on each person.
How many people do you have close to you that you can really talk to - it's good if you have people you can get close to

Donna...There are others on this site who have also lost their spouses. They can help you because they understand what you are going through. I will keep you in prayer as you go through this grieving process. Your emotional ups and downs is normal in grief.

what you are experiencing is normal. your emotions will go radically up and down. you must grieve your own way but also get absorbed in your church, hobbies and friends. when my husband passed in 07, my children left and I was alone. I had one or two friends who cared but none of my other friends couldn't be found. grieving is personal and all is different. God bless you. you are surely in my prayers.

Donna, I know what you are going through. I went through the same. There really is no right way to mourn. I use to go to the cemetery everyday for about a year after work. I missed her so much I just wanted to be where she was buried.
I met so many people while going there that had lost someone. In time you will realize that God gave you a longer time, and it is up to you to find a good way of using that extra time God gave you. It's been 15 years already for me, and I still think alot of her. It never goes away no matter if you marry again.

May the good Lord Jesus console you and strengthen you. May HE grant you peace and joy that nothing can take away from you. May God Himself fill the void that the transition of your husband had created for you in HIS own marvelous way, in Jesus's name.

I am so very sorry. May God minister to your heart. Hugs, Mary

Donna, what kind of help do you want?
If it's any comfort, it's perfectly normal for your emotions to be up and down only six months later.
It takes a good two years to recover emotionally from the loss of a spouse.
Give yourself time to grieve, dear soul, and be assured this is NOT showing a lack of faith on your part. Nobody is expecting you to be superwoman but you.
Glory to Jesus Christ!
