Hope

I was watching a preview of a spiritual movie that will be coming out next month. It is a about a man with a great job and good family. Then all of the sudden he loses his job and gets terminally ill. There is even death that hits his immediate family.

This can prove true in our lives...disaster can hit like a ton of bricks and it has...That's why we need Hope...Hope that things will get better. - Hebrews 11:1

Being A Friend In Need

Last night I visited a widow who is still very much grieving over her husband's death. Although she talks about her husband every time I visit her, I listen. She cries .. I listen. The point is that we need to recognize the trauma that each of us go through and try to understand the effects of the trauma.....She did not want any advice. She wanted me to listen and that is what a true friend does -" A true friend loves at all times"- Proverbs 17:17

One last beautiful day

It has been one month today since I was "normal". Exactly one month ago we were working side by side, picking up, taking care of our fur babies, making breakfast, then doing lots of yard work. I can't believe it was that long ago. I am in this horrible time warp where time as it used to be doesn't exist any longer. It seems like it was yesterday.  What a great day it was! I suppose I should be more thankful that it was such a great day.  I suppose in time, I will cherish this day. Right now…

Children and Funerals

When I was a child, I remember going to funerals and no one ever explaining to me what was going on. I saw a body in a casket and everyone crying...At times some would get a little more overboard with their crying...I think they felt guilty. I would stare at them with sadness.

I think it is so crucial that folks be open and honest with their children. Telling children God took the person paints the picture that God is cruel ( at least it did in my mind).Some may weigh the…

I Just Don't Want To Talk

Sometimes we get so down that we just do not want to talk to anyone.. I feel like that sometimes.We should not judge. Just continue to show love and never stop the encouragement- John 13:34,35

45 and lost - only 9 years they went by so fast

Richard was so full of life. He passed on 11/4/15 after 4 mos of battling stomach cancer.  WHY didn't I push him more years before to get checked more thoroughly at the DR.  I said to him years before that he didn't look right.  He jokingly replied "oh well maybe I am dying."  Well sadly he was right.  I told him for years that sleeping 12 hours a day was not normal and I thought he was just depressed.  We were so busy working and just trying to make it in life that we missed the fact that…

A Lasting Legacy – All That Remains

When a parent, spouse, sibling, child, or friend dies, we grieve for our loss. As we continue to mourn, we wonder if we will ever find the love, companionship, or support that is now lost. While our loved one is physically gone, we cherish the memories of our time together. As…

A message of comfort to all.

My condolences to the family of those who have died. I will like to share a scripture I found comforting, Acts 24:15. It says that “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous”. We all cant wait to see our loved ones again!

A Widow's 'All Girls' Trip Is Worth the Try

Q. I’ve been asked to join some women acquaintances on a long weekend excursion. The participants are widows (like me) or divorced. What do you think?

I’m all for it. In fact, I’ve been doing something similar for several years. The “all girls” trip has become an annual highlight. In my case, the idea took hold after my husband, an attorney, died. One of his biggest clients was a…

To Death Do Us Part

Many of us have heard these words..." To death do us apart" Death  brings an end of marriage. Many children get mad if their parents want to remarry. The decision is personal and one should want their parent to be happy- 1 Corinthians 7:39

Respecting Your Love One's Wishes

Very important that our sick love ones have someone that can act as an agent and advocate.One of my friends was too sick to talk and her mother acted as an advocate. It was a sad situation because her children wanted to do something opposite of my fiend's wishes. This is so sad. As children we need to respect our parents wishes dead or alive. If our love one wishes to be cremated ..respect their wishes. When you see them again one day, you can say I did every thing just so. It's not a bad…

After a Family Rift, Should You Go to the Funeral or Memorial Service?

Q. My aunt just died, and I want to attend the funeral. However, I haven’t spoken to my cousin (her son) for several years after a series of arguments. What should I do? I’m afraid he’ll be annoyed to see me there or even challenge me.

Funerals and memorial services are meant to be healing rituals for survivors that bring us together to share the loss of a loved one. But that doesn’t happen if the bereaved are…
