Widow’s Tears: God Catches Them All

May 3

A day will not erase the pain of your beloved spouse but Jimmy Chouteau founded this day with the hopes of easing the pain that women go through as widows whether newly widowed or many years past.

Today is recognized as National Widow’s Day by the great people at Widow Wednesday, which is a non-profit organization created with the sole purpose of pouring back into the community located in the greater Kansas City area. What an interesting and amazing concept to set aside a Wednesday over the past five years to assist Widows and Widowers with handy or household work? This is nothing short of amazing.

As a woman who works with grieving families and individuals who are processing loss, secondary losses can become essential things that are needed but not thought much about after the death of a loved one. Household chores, organizational assistance, or lawn care are things that can sometimes be cast aside because you are simply trying to learn how to do the next natural thing in life. There are so many people in the network of care but many just remain to the side because they may not quite know how to handle the loss or how to help. I am thankful to know that there is an organization out there that can meet the needs of women who are in this space and that organization is Widow Wednesday.

I am sure the needs may be many, but find out what you can do today to support and be a blessing in the life of a widow today. If you are not able to physically assist, pick up the phone and call someone you know. Just find your way to be there.

GriefTalk and Danitaogandaga.com supports the need to be a blessing to people at their lowest point of grief. We thank God and believe God for restoration but also know that it is a process that must work itself out through communication, notification, and coordination of services. Go ahead and get started today!

Celebrating 10 Years of Marriage Today 10/22/2015

us

Happy 10 Years Married Darcy Franck Ogandaga! Today is our WEDDING ANNIVERSARY! This scripture used to make me cringe. Back then, I refused to shut up, had to make my point with tantrums, boisterous to get his attention and then my walk with Father God began. He would just sit there and look at me and smile. I learned, not from formulas, from momma, but from time with Father God how to settle my spirit and identity the fear of submission. I do not profess to be holier than thou just eager to find peace in my home and through the years, I have learned that (1) Being loud only magnifies your voice not your opinion (2) Identity the fear of submission after all, I have worked on me for a long time. Why would I want to now give myself as a project to someone else. STOP IT. You don’t have to (3) Quiet the noise of my unmarried friends who knew so much. Stop looking outward for people to solve your situations cause between Google, Blogs, and Magazines, they can do that real good (4) Dismiss the biased opinions of family & some friends that did not understand that being married to a man of African decent does not mean control. People are real good at bulking you up. Why do you think every fight on the street is surrounded by people cheering the conflict on until that ONE PERSON comes to clear the crowd? Hummmm. When you can put tradition in its proper place, YOUR CULTURE BECOME CHRIST 1st. (5) Make love often. Whether it is acts of service, dancing in the house to Earth, Wind, & Fire or time in the bedroom, floor, or whatever (come on married people), make time for love AND FINALLY, (6) Put YOUR HOPE, YOUR PEACE, YOUR JOY in Christ ALONE! Love the gift that God has blessed you with in your mate and enjoy each and every day. Bebejoufloue loves you DJ Darcy B~

I encourage you to visit my book boutique at http://www.danitaogandaga.bigcartel.com for my latest book which is selling limited copies, Miscarriage and Marriages in honor of our 10th year wedding anniversary and this month being National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Rememberance Month.

Love you all and thanks for reading!
