“A Word About Doing Without!”
From a practical perspective I’m sure most know what it is like to “do without”, but when it happens to be your “helpmeet”
a cry for help is often in order as I recently experienced following my wife Colleen’s necessity to be with her grieving Mother after the eternal home going of her husband.
Of course there really wasn’t any other option because her #1 responsibility was to lend support to her Mom
at this particularly difficult time which caused me to accept how to, temporarily…live without, which in comparison to Colleen’s Mom’s loss as well as the number of women in our congregation’s emotional struggle with “widowhood” is minute. Therefore I choose to learn the value of contentment when “abased” or “abounding”. See Philippians 4:11-13
