Nothing Like Being a Widow

There is nothing like being a widow…

It is not for the faint of heart
It crushes and presses your soul

Until the mourning in black coal
Becomes a diamond of treasured art.


There is nothing like being a widow…


It is a journey filled with pain

And all the steps are agony
As we take every step of this journey
In spite of desert, storm, or rain.


There is nothing like being a widow…

With half my heart in heaven’s glory
Learning the steps of a new dance
living each moment leaving nothing to chance
Waiting to read the new chapters of my story.

There is nothing like being a widow…

It transforms the weakest place

Pouring out abundant hope and love
With strength and grace from above
So we can look into Jesus face.
