I keep asking Him to close my heart and take away the desireof sharing my earthly life with another. So I continue to pray and be open to meet people God brings into my life.
I don’t want this search to sound like it has overtaken my life.
Dating, especially for adult women, is really a quiet activity.
I continue to work full time; own a home and maintain it; parent a college-age child; attend and volunteer in a local church; write for A Widow’s Might; fellowship with friends and family; and support the care for my parents.
There is a certain vulnerability in sharing this part of my life in an article, especially one that will be circulated among Christian readers.
But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed again him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? Consider and hear me, O Lord my God; lighten mine eyes lest I sleep the sleep of death.
