Put Those Phones & IPads Away When Visiting Grandma

Today, I came across a picture of a family visiting grandma. Everyone was on their cell phone and I phones. No one was paying attention to Grandma. Then it read put the phones away because you never know when they will be gone......

This is so true.... My grandparents are all dead now and I am glad I did not have any distractions while visiting them.

I think technology has become addicting and at times we need to self analyze ourselves because the most important people will be…

Personal Blog:...Singing He Will Call

Today, I decided to sing and tape myself singing one of my favorite songs about death...

Life, like a mist, appears for just a day,

Then disappears tomorrow.

All that we are can quickly fade away,

Replaced with tears and sorrow.

If a man should die, can he live again?

Hear the promise God has made:…

Who Pays for the Funeral? Defining 'Immediate Family'

Q. A friend of mine has been asked to help pay for the funeral of a cousin she was never close to. Somehow it doesn't seem right, especially when the bereaved are not exactly poor. Whatever happened to families taking responsibility for such costs? And how can my friend handle this situation without feeling…

Mall Shooting In Charlotte- Christmas Eve

So again I turn on the TV and hear of another shooting. Many feared that it was an active shooter but the news made it clear that it was not. It turned out to be a verbal altercation between two different parties. An undercover policeman approached the young man with the gun. The young man ended up dead. So sad...This caused so much chaos...Panic attacks...asthma attacks...Lost children. People running out of the mall like this was the end.... This is very sad. Death does not stop because…

Blog: Does Anybody Value Life Anymore? - Miss Universe Pageant

So today I turn on my computer and read about the Miss Universe Pageant and Steve Harvey announcing the wrong name. I know he did not mean to do this. ( I know he feels bad). This caused much chaos... One driver ran into a crowd of people on purpose and killed someone and injured 37 others. How sad... No one values life anymore. It has become an everyday occurrence...Bombings, school shootings, work place violence, parents killing kids and vice versa....Satan has got a grip on this…

Our Cherished Objects

My daughter inherited my mother’s strand of pearls. They were housed in a silk case that was very worn and I replaced it with one of mine, more worthy of the cherished heirloom. I was then faced with the dilemma; what to do with the silk case that my mother’s hands touched every time she…

We Can Endure

So yesterday, someone brought up a picture of my late aunt and it brought back memories....I tried to remember the good times and it worked. I was reading today about how it's okay to cry and its nothing to be ashamed of. Even Jesus wept when his friend Lazarus died. They also suggested that we make a album of good memories and when we are feeling down, remember the good time you shared with your love one. Above all we need to pray that we endure these difficult times.

.....Never doubt he'll give the strenght you need

He won't forget the faith and love you've shown

He will make you firm and he will make you strong

It is a pick me up....

Funeral Flowers: What's Too Much ... or Not Enough

Q. My siblings and I are bickering over how much to spend for flowers at our mother's funeral. It's, "What do we need flowers for? They're a waste of money" – all the way to, "Let's fill the chapel." What do other people do?

Which people…

When a Sympathy Note Is Belated – and You Never Met the Deceased

Oh dear – the days and weeks have passed, and you never wrote the sympathy note. You meant to do it, but it was too hard. You don’t know the bereaved well, and you never met the deceased; nor do you know anything about the relationship between the bereaved and the deceased. How can you…
