Trying to find the way
The last few years have been extremely hard. I was in a failing relationship trying to raise three sons pretty much on my own. Sometimes working three jobs to put a roof and food on the table for my family.
During this time, my parents were also very ill. My Mom May she rest in peace. Had been sick for a number of years. She endured much in her life, kids that loved her but also had some heavy duty issues of their own. Through all of her hard ships she always kept her faith.
Sept 4 2009 was the day that my Mom went to meet God. I know that she is with him, because she sacrificed so much for her family. God was not always kind to her, he gave her many burdens. Sons on drugs and alcohol, a husband that meant well, but did not know how to help during those years. But through it all she believed in something bigger and better than what she had on this earth. She also had many trials as a young girl with parents that were less than ideal. An alcoholic father and a critical mother.
After my Mom passed I needed to find something that would help me get through the hardest times of my life.
Separated from my abusive husband, my son in Iraq and the death of my Mom. I was a mess.
I remember my Mom telling me that God would never give me more than I could handle and that she often found peace within the pages of the Bible.
I took all her Bibles and Study guides and began to read. I find these books to be fascinating. I also find that they are filled with knowledge that we can only imagine.
Although I have some things that I question I believe that the bible is helping me to turn my life around and be the strong beautiful woman that my Mom wanted me to be. For the first time in many years I feel good most of the time.
I enjoy this site because it has a lot of interesting things to help me understand some of what I am reading in the Bible.
I also appreciate the author of this web site. He is knowledgeable and I truly enjoy reading his posting about various things. Although I may not agree with his views 100 percent of the time, it is refreshing that he is not afraid to post how he feels.
