A Widow’s One Constant

George W. McDaniel said, “The Bible is a bridge spanning the deep river of life, built of steel and concrete by inspired workman. The foaming floods have never shaken it’s Adamantine Foundation.  It has never needed repair and no one need doubt its security. On its stone floor, worn smooth by the feet of devout pilgrims, millions have crossed on to Glory, and by it we must cross over if we would walk with safety.”

I have found in my widow journey and even before as I was going through death’s dark valley with my husband, the Holy Spirit would bring specific scriptures to my mind just as I needed them. God and His Word the Bible was my one constant then and now. It’s only because of His grace that I have come this far.
