Quote of the Day
Grief is a tidal wave that over takes you, smashes down upon you with unimaginable force, sweeps you up into its darkness, where you tumble and crash against unidentifiable surfaces, only to be thrown out on an unknown beach, bruised, reshaped... Grief will make a new person out of you, if it doesnt kill you in the making. Stephanie Ericsson

BIBLE VERSES FOR WIDOWS

[4]

"Be kind to strangers, widows, and fatherless children." Genesis 22:21-22
"It shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow."
Be kind to widows, orphans, fatherless children and strangers. Share whatever you have with them. Deuteronomy 24:17-21
"Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked." Though this seems to be directed at other gods, it is good advice for humans as well. Psalms 82:3-4
James 1:27 "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
1Timothy 5:9,11-13 (NIV) No widow may be put on the list of widows unless she is OVER SIXTY… As for younger widows, do not put them on such a list. For when their sensual desires overcome their dedication to Christ, they want to marry. Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also gossips and busybodies, saying things they ought not to.
