The Fives Are Outweighing the Forties

40 years of marriage

   40 years of workaholism 

      40 years of loneliness 

         5 months of separation

            5 months distance from the workaholic lifestyle

               5 months of fewer moments of loneliness

Who would think that being left alone would actually result in feeling less and less lonely?  

                   For your Maker is your Husband,
                      The LORD of Hosts is His Name;
                         And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
                            He is called The God of the Whole Earth.  
                                   ~ Isaiah54:5

Thank You, my God and Husband.  Thank You!

Because of Him and Unto Him,

Martha Herden said...

your "Encouraging Words" are shedding a Massive Spotlight on the horrendous Loss you have suffered.

One could stop there--and stay Mad, but you my dear friend, oh the LORD is lifting you so high, as you are with HIM, shoulder to shoulder, taking these First New steps!

A beautiful posting, filled with HONESTY!

Love to you Diane, martha

I am with Martha, we who love you and pray for you are getting an inside look at how God is encouraging you through this hard time. Even though you may write with tears falling and heart breaking you still give God the glory. He understands your tears my friend.

This is powerful Diane, I can tell you are spending time under the Shadow of the Almighty.
Our times are in His hands.Psalm 31:15a
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart,
All you who hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24

Love and prayers, Ronnie

Thank you, Linda!!!! I appreciate your kind words.

Diane Ronzino said...

As always, your gift of encouragement and exhortation blesses my soul. Thank you to one who knows the deepest darkness pain - physical and emotional. You comfort from the comfort you have received from The Comforter, Himself. So honored to know you, Martha.

Diane Ronzino said...

Oh, thank you, Betty. That is one of my all-time, favorite Scriptures - that He collects our tears in a bottle, next to our names written in His Book of Life. Thank you for reminding me!

Diane Ronzino said...

Thank you so much, Ronnie. So nice to have you come and comment. I truly appreciate it and you, precious, dear old friend.

To all who may read this: I met Ronnie on the beach where Joe and I got water baptized 30 years ago. She invited us to her home for a celebration. I've never forgotten that Ronnie! You had the heart of Christ then as you do now. I love you.
