"O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in Him." (Psalm 34:8)
It was 25 years ago today that my first husband was killed by a drunk driver. It was difficult to imagine then that I could ever smile again - that I could ever be truly happy again. I had 2 choices: try to handle the grief alone - or - cling to the Lord and trust Him to help me through it - one minute at a time at first; then, hour by hour, day by day, week by week, month by month and year by year.
Here I am - 25 years later - married to a wonderful Christian man that I'm completely head-over-heels in love with - living in our favorite place - and I do smile - and I am truly happy. The Lord has blessed me greatly - in good times and in tough times. Clinging to the Lord was - and still is - the best choice.
All is well in the Keweenaw.
