The Measure of the Heart !!

Posted on December 14, 2010 at 1:59am 2 Comments

This year finds me at the crossroads of life without my belloved "Kisha" and I wanted to see the measure of the heart, Kisha had a heart that could not be matched when it came to love and prayer as she would go the distance for anyone and it meant more than a lot of people could measure,but yet it was visible for so many too see that this little dynamo always could throw a loving smile and captivate the heart of many as she moved thru life with love and devotion to the Father in heaven while…

The Heart of the Matter

In every heart there is love of some kind,when pain enters it puts stress on that heart and the person can only think of the pain that has invaded their space,so it is when we lose our children we see the love we have and the pain that's the invader whom we hate with a passion,that's how we feel now our children are gone and we have to wrestle with this enemy called pain and pain it is and the days come faster then and the nights are longer and lonely so I say to all my friends who share this… Continue

Rev Durden.  I was touched by the message you wrote to me.  It has been some time since I wrote that, i am at a place in my life now where I feel numb, cheated and sore at the fact that my boyfriend isnt here with me.  It has been 1 year since he passed away.  i miss him.  what can I do to start feeling again?  I use to have so much compassion , but now I here things happening to others, I just say oh well, and think look at me, what ive been through, am i being selfish?  ALso I do not feel demons around me anymore.  As much as I miss him,  he had demons following him, or in him.  Can a person see demons in other people?  Ive seen demons in other people also.  Is that normal?  WHy do I see them.  I never was baptised.  I do believe in God and I do not wish anything bad on people ever.

dear rev. durden,

my body and soul are grief ridden.  i was at a point last september, that i was desperately thinking of ending my life.  i had the opportunity to accept God into my life, heart and soul.  i made the decision to do just that. i am alive now because of HIM. times continue to be difficult, however but i know God is there.. right there with me. i continually thank Him for giving me the 25 beautiful years i had with dusty.  dusty lived a  full life,  he LIVED..

thanks for your posting.   valerie

dear rev. durden.  its been awhile since we have spoken.  since we last spoke, i have been born again.  if i had not turned my life over to God,  i dont believe i could have survived without my dusty.  i have no support. i have no friends, and my family has disowned me because i used drugs 5 years ago. i have been clean now for 3 years.  there seems to be no forgiveness.  i joined my church about 3 months ago, i am hungry for the Lord, wanting Him more and more,  the Lord has put it in my heart to help begin a ministry at my church to help families that have either drug abuse or alcohol abuse.  we believe that the Lord with draw families in from all over. this has revealed my purpose to live.  dusty will be gone 2 years as of this august 28/.  i miss him terribly and have some real bad days.  however, on those bad days i get on my knees and pray to our Lord.  what a difference my life had been.  thank you for all your kindness, hope and blessings.  valerie

Thank you for sending me such hope although I do not come here as much as I should. You have faced alot of loss. My father also had a severe stroke and is still alive alothough in a wheelchair and can hardly speak. He had it 11 years ago. I thought he was going to be the one to die, not my mom who took care of him all those years. She forgot about her and now I'm doin the same. Not caring for me. I'm in a mess. Prescription abuse. WHY? I always seem to hurt myself like I am a punishment from God, if there is a God....WHY? You are very kind anyways!! Wendy

Thank you so much for thinking of me!  I do know that I was blessed to have had Jacob in my life for nearly 21 years, and I am thankful that I had someone to share my life with for 27+ years.  I know there are people even now worse off than I am in this world.  I have my health, and my home and my dogs, and I had a family.  I try to be thankful for what I have now, even if I do feel lonely.  I am coming up on 4 years since I lost my precious Jacob, and it will be the first anniversary without my husband.  He planned a memorial cruise for the past 3 years.  Not just a local cruise either....he had so many online friends, and there were many groups riding all over the world in our son's memory.  I guess I will have to carry it on...don't know if I am strong enough for that, but I know I will survive...that is for sure.  You will always miss your daughter, but I know that you are thankful for the time you had her, and you will survive as well.  Sending you a big hug for comfort when you miss her.

dear rev. durden, i have missed writing to you.  the grief of losing my precious dusty has taken over my life. i feel as if i move on, he would get mad at me that i should stay with him.  we needed each other, i was there during his drug battle, when nobody was, i did everything possible to boost him up and let him know he was better than the drugs and he could make a difference in this world..  my words, my love ,my everything couldnt change his drug addiction. drug addiction is an illness. he did not deserve this, he just could not beat the demons. they ate him alive. they took him away from me. i need him.  i do feel he is finally at peace, but now i am left with my life in shambles.  thanks for your always kind words... hugs, valerie

is there such a thing as the grimm reaper.  My boyfriend passed away 6 months ago.  he was 55. he died of overdose of perscrip. pills.  we were always arguing.  i would fight off demons as i saw them.. i saw him 3 weeks before he died.  i looked at him upclose and saw the grimm reaper in his face.  i saw the skeloton.  He died 3 weeks later.  when it happened i felt a sense of relief.  No more anxiety. or feeling like im running from something.  Although  i miss him terribly,  i do not miss his demonic ways.  do i make any sense to you.  please respond.

Thank you for writing on my wall.  You have very comforting words to share, and I appreciate them.  I had been overwhelmed the last few weeks.  Although this was the 4th Christmas without my son, it was the first without my husband of nearly 27 years.  It was quiet and lonely, and I am very thankful it is over.  I neglected everyone on this site that I think I can help, or at least share my experience with, or just read, understand and send hugs and smiles to.  But I am back, and this journey of grief I have been on will not be complete until I have given back by sharing with others the journey I am on.
