It has been said that you are only as tall as the shoulders you stand on and only as strong as the shoulders you cry on.  Both used to be my 6 foot 3 inch husband Bob.  He’s in heaven now and has a replacement.  Let me introduce you to my new husband:  In Isaiah 54: 5 God makes this promise to widows.


For your Maker is your husband—

the Lord Almighty is his name—

the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer;

he is called the God of all the earth.

That’s good news!  My challenges are no smaller whether with family, ministry in Africa, or just daily living. But the shoulders I stand on could be no taller, and those I cry on no stronger than His.
