Sister, Friend, Widow,

I am so sorry for your great loss. Even though some time has passed since the passing of your husband, I know it may still be tender to lie down at night with pillows piled on the other side of the bed so it won’t feel so big and empty without him by your side. I also know that waking up in the morning without him still may feel like a bad dream at times.

Even though we feel the pressure from the world around us, you and I both know that we can’t pack grief up in a box with a pretty bow in a short period of time. Perhaps you were surprised that some years were even a little more tender than the first. Perhaps you have felt the sting of losing not only your husband but your world as you knew it.

Loneliness fills the empty places while memories fill your heart.

We pray that EverPresent Help will be just that—a way to connect with resources that will encourage you. It is also our desire that you fine a network of support to come alongside you in this journey. May God hold you close as you continue to live life as a widow.

Now, let’s take those baby steps together:

  1. Request. Invite family and friends join your Inner Circle! Your Inner Circle are those people who have already made it known that they want to help carry you through this difficult season.
  2. Receive. Post your important needs so your community and EverPresent Help can offer the support that is most meaningful to you! Need meals, a home repair, or just a shoulder to cry on, they are all one post away.
  3. Rest. Know that God has not left you alone and that all the questions don’t have to be answered right now. God promises to be with you, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” – Psalm 46:1

As you make your way, lean on your community and continually place your trust in God. Here are some of our favorite resources to help establish that community and continually keep God’s perspective.

You are not alone. One step at a time, one breath at a time, you will make it through the valley of the shadow of death.

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.” – Psalm 23:4
