Crying out for the Older Titus 2 Mother

Part 1  My Life

This morning i walked slowly out to my garden. . .my cornfield...i feel so tired inside.  i feel like an old woman now. When i was a young woman. . i cried continually for the older woman to teach me . . to help me ..i was a young stay at home mom on welfare. . My husband was gone most of the time. . i cried out to the older woman to comfort me . . i had no one. . And i finally at 50 yrs old stopped crying out to the older woman and i became her ...i became the older Titus 2 mother. . i am 67 yrs old now. . So i have been writing now to the younger stay at home mom for 27 yrs..

Part 2   Partakers of Christ

A few days ago i got an email from a missionary in some country i never heard of..i accidentally deleted it. .{Nice goin connie}...This man really encouraged me. . He said .."Connie please dont ever give up your writings". . He said "Keep writing across your nation and in my country"..It must have been from someone who gets Nancy's magazine "Above Rubies"...i feel as i write this.... a very grave feeling..Like its a time to really get right with God..Our dear America...Oh i feel such a mourning in my heart for our great Nation. . i cry out to God for courage. . For supernatural courage...i for one feel empty and lost after losing David...Johnnys family then came back for the 4th. . John made me laugh. . The grandchildren made me laugh too..But John is very sorrowful about David..we all are..We miss him now but will miss him more as time goes on. . i ask the Lord "How will i go on?".i guess i will find out hu? Jesus is real in every situation. . and he is our answer to every heartache..All is well and all is good and things are moving as they shud..The Lord is still on His throne. . and by faith it is well with my soul..love connie

I have great concern for our nation also. These words that Paul wrote to the Ephesians are an encouragement.

"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith--that you being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3: 14-19

I am much older than you and have never, ever seen our beautiful country in such sorrowful state.
I can't believe some of the things those in Washington expect us to believe. Shocks me so much.

I still have my mate so can't even imagine life without him. I do know that GOD carries us thru..I often wonder about those that don't have a relationship with Jesus Christ...how do THEY endure heartbreak?

Dear Connie,
I am so so so very sorry for your loss. My heart is broken. I am holding you in prayer, even during the night watches, trusting the Lord to hold you too. I have been to that "lost" place, as you have described how you feel....old and tired and lost. Surely God has made a place for us to be safely "lost" in Him. He knows, dear one.
Thank you so much for your faithful ministry. The Lord has greatly used you to encourage me. Wish I could sit and have a cup of tea with you, and spend our time talking about Jesus,and listen to you tell stories about your dear son.
Love Lena

I'm so sorry for your loss, Connie. It is difficult to understand and recover from such an incredibly important love in your life to no longer be beside you. Your writing and sharing of your story will help comfort others. I am with you in mourning for our nation. It can be overwhelming to think about. Blessings to you!
