I was reading a Bible proverb this afternoon and it read " all the days of the afflicted are bad, but one with a cheerful heart has a continual feast....(Prov 15:15)....So as I meditate on this wise and perfect saying... It teachs me not focus on the bad but focus on the positive...This may be doing things for people, engaging in volunteer work, being around positive upbuilding people, looking a God's creation such as the beautiful flowers posted on this site... or just reading the postive…Continue

So, now I hear on the news that their is a terror alert because of the big parade down town... Now, things are hitting home. Things like this happen every day in other countries. Sadly, we turn the other cheek. Despite police and governments best efforts we still are going to have death because of wickedness. Our schools are not even immuned any more. I pray for peace and security worldwide....and no man or woman can do this. Things are getting worst and I know it will get better…Continue

Have you ever been through something so dramatic that it changed your life forever? I have experienced this in my life all too many times. None had ever been as drastic as the event that left a lasting scar in my life. The day I’m speaking of was the day my mother left this world, in other words the day she died.
December 28 2013, began with quite a start. The night before my brother, father, mother, grandmother, and I had planned to leave Zephyrhills and head back to Melbourne for a…Continue

So I learn today that the homicide rate has gone up at a alarming rate in Baltimore. My family lives near this city....My sympathy goes out to all the families that have recently loss a child, as son, a mother, a sister, a father, a brother in Baltimore. All part of Bible prophecy....God wipe this wickedness away soon. I know you will. I weep again today. May we comfort one another in this time of sadness.

I have never posted anything so personal as this in any kind of chat
rooms or anything similar, so if it seems that I am going on and on and on
it's because this, I guess, is my way of coping and hopefully part of the road
to my grief recovery. I lost my gay life-partner and my soul-mate a little
over a year ago. Many people have told me that it gets easier with each day
that passes. I have to agree to a certain degree. Some days it seems that…Continue

Mourning the loss of a loved one is hard work and it can feel even tougher when you add holidays into the mix. Our holidays are laced with traditions, memories, and familiar faces. When someone is missing, what do you do? Celebrate as you always did or bury your head under the covers and hope the day and season quickly pass?
The holidays will come and go whether you feel like…Continue

After 13 years together my beloved Alberto died on Aug 16. He was a shy but very charming man who loved his family and who loved me.
I have lots others whom I loved dearly parents, a nephew, and best friends. No loss prepares you lose the one to whom you come home every night. He will no longer kiss me when I walk through the door at the end of the day. He will no longer tell me simply "get some rest" as I head up to bed. He will no longer press his cold feet against me and say…Continue
I (finally) wrote back to an acquaintance who is in very similar shoes as myself. I hate to cop-out & be lazy with a copy-paste, but the content is pretty much the same. The update:
The only option we really get is to just muddle through it as best we can; discovering who we are again without our other halves; realizing all the ways we let our others complement our selves over the years. I can barely…Continue

There seem to be no conversational boundaries when it comes to death. The bereaved are often subjected to inappropriate comments and questions that can shock, hurt, or leave us speechless. We are often left wondering, how can friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, and even acquaintances say or ask…Continue
