About the Book

Many who have lost a long-time spouse find their remaining years overwhelmingly difficult and empty. Indeed, this arduous journey is like walking through a “valley of the shadow of death.” Often times, the feelings of loss and loneliness are unbearable. What lies ahead seems like an endless path that brings a plethora of uncertainties and unknowns. The traumatic emotional experience of one’s final parting days lingers on and brings back memories of the pain and sadness of seeing a loved one pass away.

In this book, the author relays her pain and wavering faith after her husband of forty-two years passes into his heavenly home. Living in an empty house, she too finds the loss and loneliness of death unbearable. Likening her experience to the four seasons of winter, autumn, spring, and summer, she describes the different stages of grieving she endures; from bleak dark winter nights to life-energizing summer days. Most importantly, though, she emphasizes that God never left her side, even at times when He seemed far away. She describes how her faith in a trustworthy God is eventually renewed, and how she regains the strength and stamina to press forward with the goal of carrying on her late husband’s unfinished task of bringing the Gospel to developing countries. The Lord has wiped away her tears and replaced her sorrow with laughter. She is able to sing out to the Lord a new song, for it is He who she found walking alongside her in this journey of grieving, healing, and rebuilding.
