The Widows' Path by Ferree Hardy
This was such a wonderful message to hear this morning. I am fortunate to be in a ladies’ book club where the women (who are widows) range from 81 to 90. Then there’s me, the “baby” at 62. I love their wisdom and perspective. I now know where my questions will take me when we talk about the journey of life. Thank you.
Thank you Ferree for your insight. Four months after my husband was diagnosed with early onset dementia, I was diagnosed with a rare form of aggressive colon cancer. After the first month of chemo, i developed a pulmonary embolism. I thought I would die. In the hospital bed, I prayed, Lord let me live long enough to bury my husband. After the funeral, 4 years later, I started to get my affairs in order. I kept having poor test results but it actually never got worse. Last Saturday, it's been 11 years since his passing and in October it will be 15 years since my diagnosis. My affairs are in order but I am grateful to the Lord Almighty for the extended years after the embolism and my husband's passing. And I have reached Medicare age. Lol. I do know the future. One day, I will see Jesus and my husband. That's all I need to know.
