Hi Michelle,

You are in a true place of transition. When we have
poured our lives into our children, and they mature
and go on to where we have desired them to go, we
are left behind.
I am not there yet, but I am watching ones around me
go there. By God's grace and kindness I have two
"late boys" born when I was 43 and 45. These guys
will keep me busy for a while yet!( I am 53 now.)
But watching those around me that started with me
over 20 years ago, I see very clearly where you are.
Some have gotten jobs. One went back to school and
is a nurse. Another is working in her husband law
office. One is doing volunteer work. I am not sure
what I would do.
I would encourage you to look at your husband. Where
you are in life many marriages are suffering. This
is the relationship that will last even when the
others are grown and gone.
You mentioned your faith. Have you trusted in Jesus
for your salvation and chosen to follow Him? Psalm
73 has been the cry of my heart of late. "Whom have
I in heaven but you? And besides you I have nothing
on earth." Our Great God desires to have a real
relationship with us as individuals! Sometimes He
allows the things we are leaning on/trusting in to
be taken away from us so that we recognize in a
greater way our need for Him.
You could use the time you have now to seek Him.
Read the Bible. Study it. Pray for others. Find some
true fellowship. Seek out someone you know who
really seems to know God as an intimate friend.
Our God is a God of relationship. He has given His
Son so that you can walk with Him.
Maybe your husband would be willing to find a
fellowship of believers you both could grow in.

May The Lord show you what He has for you now.
