Small change of plans...

I'm quite fickle, it seems. I move to a new blog home, I decide to password-protect some posts but not others…and now I decided to make it a private blog.

I sent out invitations to those who've emailed me for the password…but if I missed you, leave a comment here with your email address or else email me at crashcoursewidow at gmail dot com, put PASSWORD LIST or SUBSCRIBE TO BLOG in the subject line, and include your email address. I'll send you an invitation as soon as I have a chance…which might be within a day or two, depending on how my week's going.

If you already have a Wordpress.com account, you can just go to the new blog (http://mylifesnotaparagraph.wordpress.com/) when you're logged in to Wordpress and click on the link to request access.

A note in Sept. 2015: If you're requesting access to my private Wordpress site, please drop me an email at crashcoursewidow at gmail, briefly listing who you are, how you found me, and why you'd be interested in my private blog. I haven't had any posts visible here on CCW in 3 years...so I generally don't grant people access to the private blog unless I know more about you. Thanks!

  2. A few years ago, I lost my husband and my mother within nine months of each other. I was completely lost and did not know where to turn. I had no idea where to begin following such life-changing events.
    Ever since my husband’s passing, I have wanted to create a website that would help others approach and manage their own personal journey through the recovery of losing a loved one. I also wanted them to know that they were not alone in their confusion and grief -- and that life does indeed go on.
    I humbly request your assistance in sharing my new and unique website http://thegoodnewsis.com with as many people as possible.
    Please let me know if this is something that you might consider sharing with your viewers.
    Thank you for your time and consideration,
    Sheryl Silverstone

  4. God has been the difference in my own life during times of loneliness, heartbreak, and pain. I know too well what it means of not getting encouraged by others and the hurt that comes from that. I've found that only God always offer encouragement and hope, much better than any human can offer. I can only imagine how it feels to be widowed. I have the taste of having a soul tie broken- I've gotten dumped in the past and it's hurt me so much in the past. The Bible teaches that a sexual relationship (whether marital or premarital) results in the man and woman becoming one (a soul tie). Rejection and abandonment are all painful things. King Solomon said that everything in this world is vanity, everything is meaningless- a chasing after the wind. Eventually whatever we gain in this world (relationships, success, wealth), we lose them all at some point. There is something you can never lose though- God. God surpasses everything in our lives. Our thirsting for things in this world (especially human relationships) is evidence that we need something greater than those things to satisfy us because everything except God will end up failing you in some way. God has promised us that He will never leave us nor forsake us. God can't die on us and leave us in a state of loneliness. God won't cheat on us, dump us and go off with someone else. Whenever you feel lonely or feel that you're missing something in your life- realize that God wants to fill that void in your life. So many times I've been ignorant about the Bible. We're trained from our birth to live by our 5 senses- thus we look to perceive God with those senses.  Most of the time, we can't perceive God with our 5 senses as He is a spiritual being. God has wanted me to develop my spiritual senses and rely on His word (the Bible) to experience Him. I've learned to always see God's word as alive, powerful, and relevant for each day. When I've failed to see that in the past, it's robbed me so much joy and peace. I've learned to look at the Bible as a powerful and active gateway/portal to God. We can try to occupy our minds with so many different things in this world to try and fill the void in our lives or suppress the pain, but all of those things will keep us still hungry and thirsty. God has promised us that if we reach out to Him, He will give us rest, quench our thirst, and satisfy our hunger. If you haven't done that, I hope you will give God a chance. I further hope that God will use you to go and reach others with His word, just like He has used me to reach out to you. Many people in this world are hurting just like you. Many are just looking for a simple act of kindness or a word of encouragement (words are powerful- they can heal and motivate or when used in an evil manner destroy others) which they don't receive from others. Ultimately, many even end their own lives because they feel hopeless and want to end their pain of torment- all because they've failed to see God was nearby all along and they failed to perceive Him with their spiritual senses. God loves you more than any human in this world! He wants to be your companion today and take care of you and your family's needs. I hope you see and explore His love for you today through the Bible- the Bible is the secret source for unraveling peace and joy for you when you can't find them in this world. I can't give you physical copy of the Bible right now, but you can freely access it online at (www.biblegateway.com). May God bless you, heal you and strengthen you and your family. Continue to write and help others for His glory. Claim God's promises to you from His word today. Humans will likely fail to encourage you when you really need it, however, God won't fail. All you need to do is turn to His word. It is available 24/7 whenever you need it- to experience God. Please read these verses when you get the chance- Isaiah 55:11-13; Jeremiah 49:11; Psalm 146:9; Psalm 68:5; Isaiah 54:4-6; Revelation 21:1-7.
