Just in Case

I haven't logged onto this site for a while but Heatha was kind enough to send me a nice note in hopes I'm doing alright. 

I really appreciate that. 

And the answer is I'm doing okay : )  

I will check in here from time to time to at least view from the sidelines (modus…

Blog: Coping through Song

My wounds are deep and slow to heal

My load is hard to bear

Despondent thoughts and disappointed hopes

have left me weak

O God of comfort for me

Do raise me up and help me endure ,

When I'm in doubt  make my hope sure

From deep dispair I turn to you 

Jehovah my God my strength renew

Psalms 4:1 NWT

Blog- VA Shootings

My heart goes out to the families and friends of the reporters that lost their lives. Its very sad that people have to harm people to get their point across. This does not solve anything and it makes matter worse. Then to find out the man comitted suicide after the shootings. We only can pray and push (pray untill something happens) that things will get better soon. I weep for the victims today NWT Romans 12:15

Blog- Long Lasting Grief - Miscarriage

Long lasting grief will it ever end?

Will my mother ever smile again?

Mom I look at you and cant help but think

I am so sorry for your long lasting grief

I too lost some one

I too lost my sibling

24 years old that one would be

Long lasting grief

I can t let you over take us

NVT Psalms 55:22

It is.... what it is...

Loss is loss. Death or any other version there of... It takes grieving, the support of those that understand the very concept of "Loss", and family and friends with ever ready loving patience and care.

Any loss brings about change. And human nature doesn't always ply well to this. The emotions, feelings and thoughts are the byproducts of the knee jerk reaction that comes with change. The want to run and hide, The want to be alone, the want to crawl into a hole to curl up and let the world… Continue

Personal Blog: Pain

As I do some reading today, I came across something interesting. We all experience pain due to the death of our close friends and family members... Some experience pain daily. On a positive note, we never know what encouragement we may get from day to day. All we can do is take one day at a time and not let that pain overtake us or cripple us. We can have hope that God will swallow up our pain forever NWT Isaiah 25: 8. This has strenghten me today......

Today's Thoughts - Dont wait till its too late to say Good things

As I read a post that talks about how we should make mends before its too late, I think about how I need to remember that our speech can pierce like a sword... Then I think is it really worth saying things that are hurtful... No its not! Make mends now before they are gone NWT Proverbs 16:24... I appreciated that reminder.

Will You Get To Say Goodbye?

This morning I read in an obituary that a woman in my community “Left this life peacefully in the arms of her husband, children and grandchildren.” Another obituary stated, “She died peacefully surrounded by her loving family.” 

The deaths described sound almost surreal. Is it realistic for us…

Personal Blog: My therapy through song

Just see yourself, just see me too;

Just see us all in a world that is new.

Think how you’ll feel, how it will be,

To live in peace, to be truly free.

No evil one will then prevail;

Rule by our God cannot ever fail.

The time will have come for a new earthly start,

The song of our praises will pour out from our…

My Grandma

As I sit here today, I think about my paternal grandma and how she died of a broken heart. My grandfather died of kidney issues. My grandma did not last long after that. She would not eat . She would not leave house. I was young when she died but some things you never forget. Now, I think about things I could have done different. Then, I think what will help me if my husband died. I think I would want a listener. I think I would want a shoulder to cry on. I think I would want people…

Lost my best friend Brian

I lost my husband, best friend and soul mate June 22nd, 2013 at 2:32 p.m. It was 27.8 Celsius.  The worst day of my life.  Watching him take his last breaths of life, knowing he was leaving forever.  Knowing there was no return.  This was it.  We would never kiss again, hug, hold hands, laugh together, or travel again.   Never would we eat together, BBQ, take those walks in the park with Rocky, his little buddy. 

Never would my life be the same.  I wish I could of saved him.  I'm mad…

'The Green Dress' Impact

In the two months since I got married and my new book, The Green Dress, was released (on the day of our wedding as gift to our guests), I have had time to reflect on how much the book has changed me.

It has been one of many steps that I now see…

Another Song singing Day.. It makes me feel good

Life everlasting is promised.

Man’s earthly home will endure.

‘Meek ones will thrive,’ said the psalmist.

This grand future is sure.


We can live forever.

It’s worth all endeavor.

God’s promise is faithful.

His Word will come…

Extending Sympathy When You’re out of Touch

When I opened the morning newspaper, the death of a former school superintendent was front page news. I worked for the schools during the superintendent’s tenure and his widow had been in my book club. I had not seen either of them in over a decade.

Later that day I remembered that my former…

Life With Out Tears & Pain - One of My Old Time Favorites

Can you see, with your mind’s eye,

Peoples dwelling together?

Sorrow has passed. Peace at last!

Life without tears and pain.

Cause no harm to each other.

Food will be there. All will share…

my hopes of sharing

my hopes of sharing on here is to connect with others who have lost. for me I lost the love of my life to a 5 month battle from pancreatic cancer, he was only 52. although we had 15 wonderful years together I wish everyday he was still here he passed away on July 6th the very day we met. he was kind and loving and we had only 1 argument in all that time. every second with him was pure joy. I was able to spend every minute these last 5 months by his side. He had many stays in the hospital and…
