About Sorrow to Victory

I have been through deep sorrows. I lost my son in a car accident in 1996 and my husband in June of 2011. I want to encourage others who also are going through sorrows. You can come out on the other side victorious.

  1. My husband passed away suddenly on May 29th, 2011. I just happened on this site tonight and will revisit. I noticed already some similarities…the not being able to concentrate and focus to read or watch tv in the beginning. I have noticed lately that I am starting to be able to do these things. Still feeling way overwhelmed by all the “to dos” on my plate but feel that I have come a long way…with a lot further to go. I have been drawn closer to and have reached out to God and know that I would not be where I am today with that relationship. The ride is wild…a roller coaster of emotions…the variety of waves…the ups and downs. I am glad to have found this place.


    • I have found that it takes a widow to understand what another widow is going through. Naturally all of us are different and therefore grieve differently and our circumstances are also different, again making our grieving different. But when I first lost my husband I was so encouraged when another Christian widow called me. Since then, I have had other ladies comment on how they appreciate getting to talk to other Christian widows. I am glad to have you “on board” with us. Our trials and grieving do draw us closer to God if we will let them. God bless you. Kathy


    • Melissa,
      I too am on this roller coaster ride! My husband of 52 yes died very suddenly in 2012. I too have been going through the same feelings.
      My faith was greatly challenged the first year but have felt God’s presence slowly drawing me back to him.
      I am so glad to find Christian widows to share my feelings with.


  2. This is a good thing you’re doing, for truly, it does take “a widow to understand what another widow is going through.” It’s with deep gratitude for God’s grace to you that I leave this reply. May each day grow brighter in the Lord for you.


  3. Not being a widow’ this has touched my heart and helped with the trials me and my husband are going through. Waiting through his cancer surgery I had many hours to think the what if’s and then his recover still today we bless God for his will and grace in our life’s. 4 months later, We are now getting started on a cancer prayer group in the town of Lander Wy.


  4. I just found your encouraging blog for widows through Ferree’s blog.

    I lost my husband 30 months ago, Dec. 2012. We were married for 43 years. I miss him every day. Jesus is my continuing strength and knowing my husband is with Him gives me peace and joy.

    Thank you for being a light to other widows ~ FlowerLady
