A Handful of Meal and a Little Oil

I have always been amazed at the faith of the widow of Zarepath. I look at my life and wonder if I have confronted life's challenges with faith or doubt.
“And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: … and the
barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the
word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah” (1 Kings

Fantastic blog, Christine! Love it.

BTW, this is one of my fav old testament stories too. I love the remarkable faith of many of the women in the scriptures. They make such an important contrast to some of the truly wicked women figures in both the BoM and Old/New Testaments.

Thanks for the post -- I'm inspired to make some changes to my blog to reflect more of my own spirituality.

Keep up the good work!
