Kathie Lee Gifford is undoubtedly feeling emotional during the holidays this year, her first one since her late husband, Frank Gifford, died in August at 84 years old.
The 62-year-old "Today" show co-host has been taking to Twitter to share inspirational Bible verses all week, relying on her deep faith to give her strength.
You, LORD, are close to the brokenhearted and save those who are crushed in spirit. Ps 34:18. I'm praying for all of you who need His love

This past Sunday, she tweeted about being "strong and courageous."
Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

In August, Kathie Lee stressed that Frank's faith was a huge part of his life during her emotional return to the "Today" show after his death.
"As a young child, Frank asked Jesus into his heart and that remained with him for the rest of his life," she said. "He strayed from his faith on occasion, but his faith never left him, and especially after we found each other and started sharing our faith together, it became more and more and more important to Frank."
"His world got smaller as his God got bigger, and he'd want you to know that he died in complete peace," she added. "He knew every sin that he ever committed was forgiven. He had that hope that he would be with the Lord, and that we would be someday with him as well."
Last month, Frank's family revealed in a statement that although the Hall of Fame running back died of natural causes, he was also found to have had chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) -- a degenerative brain disease.
"After losing our beloved husband and father, Frank Gifford, we as a family made the difficult decision to have his brain studied in hopes of contributing to the advancement of medical research concerning the link between football and traumatic brain injury," the statement read. " … We miss him every day, now more than ever, but find comfort in knowing that by disclosing his condition we might contribute positively to the ongoing conversation that needs to be had."
