With this being the first Wedding Anniversary you will spend since the passing of your wife/husband, I want to assure you that we are thinking of you, and praying that God will undergird you with His strength.
I realize that nothing can ever really replace the love in your heart that you feel for your husband/wife that you were married to until his/her passing. Dreams shared, mountains climbed, valleys crossed, and much more was part of that special relationship that you enjoyed.
I encourage you during this time to pause and remember the many blessings that God allowed you to enjoy together, and also take courage to face the days ahead with the comfort of knowing that you will see him/her again in heaven one day.
James 4:14 says: Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
Verses of scripture like this one serve to remind us all of the brevity of this life, as well as the importance of preparing for eternity.
Take hope in God, and rest assured that His love is more than enough to carry you.
In Christ's Love,
Rev. John Doe
