Hi Karen, I hope the first of this month finds you in the joys of the Lord for he has been good to us.We all have our child in our hearts and there are times that we feel their presence & those times are more than less,our hearts are designed to feel love & give love and the Bible says all things will fail but Love will never fail(1st Cor.13:8-13) now abide faith,hope,love,these three;but the greatest of these is Love.Love won't let Ben die so there is no day we'll forget the love we have & they have for us,love believes all things so don't think it strange when you feel your child's presence for love will deliver that to you .Be Blessed!
Hi Karen,I'm glad to hear you're progressing as you travel down this road called life.There are things that happen around us that make us feel that our loved ones are near & we can rest peacefully when we're at peace,so keep on trusting and know the Lord is you all in all.
Thank you for sharing that with me. I know Ben's spirit is with you. Ben knows how much you grieve for him and miss him, but he also knows he will see you again one day soon. Ben misses his Mama too!!!!! We just have to get through one day at a time until then. God bless you.
Your friend that understands, Annette
HI Karen,that's a good looking young man and just the glow from his face shows a lot that people may never see and his look tells a story and I'll say this ;he's a blessing that can't be forgotten on no terms so you reserve the right to love him as long as you live,his heart & your heart shall always be connected & that connection travels with you day by day and night by night so keep your head up and put a smile on to match the smile on his face & the love that glows from his heart.Love never dies!!!!
Thank you for signing the guest book on Chase's website it really means a lot to me and brightened my day. I too am so sorry for the loss of your gorgeous son! I pray that God will comfort you and give you strength to get through each and every day. Cherish all of the wonderful memories that you have together. God bless you! Annette Walters
HI Karen,I know that life seems hard at times but we have to continue on regardless of the roadblocks in the way,don't give up or give in to the different obstacles you may encounter,they all are sent by an enemy to stifle your thoughts and ruin your day, learn to see the blocks and go around them or go over them but don't let them roll over you.You are stronger than you think and the love you carry and cherish is greater than the enemy trying to slow you down so live on my fiend and love on and the days will come and go a little better each day.
Hi Karen,I know you can go on and keep your head up because life has dealt us a blow that sometimes seems unbearable our resolve is great because our children are what our lives center around and my heart is getting better because I know my daughter loved life and loves me as your child's love carry you day by day.When you think you're going to crash and burn just put your mind in the heart of your child and think with love and not despair and the love that flows from the fountain of the heart.Karen there are days that I cry just by looking at a pitcure then there are days that the same pitcure will make me smile but there are never days that I don't think about Kisha because she is knitted close to my heart and regardless of the pain I feel I still feel more love than pain so I feel your pain and I feel your love and through it all we can get to the next day,month,& year if we travel this road with care.God bless you and keep you that's my prayer.Love James
Karen I am so sorry for your loss. OUr sons are the same age and hope they are playing guitar and drums and having fun. We are not. But we need to keep their legacy alive and participate with people they loved. I want him. But I cannot have him. I thought we had something in common ... I have another friend who I have met here whose son was also 24. I am glad he was here. I am glad I held him and nursed him and made him fat when he was a baby. I miss him. love to you Carrie L
My son was died November 13th 2009, and I miss him so much, I wait for a sign to know that he is near, but will it ever happen, I can't beleive he is gone, I have grief support, church, and a few friends, when I read what everyone has written, I think when will it be my turn to have that feeling he is near or will I ever have that feeling.
Hi Karen, please stop your worry & go forward for God wants you whole as you mend you'll stop beating yourself up the only thing that you can't do is go back and change anything for I did the same thing and for four years nothing has changed so I just remember the smile of my baby and the voice she carried as she called me all the time & prayed for me for she knew that her dad was in severe pain & as I preached her funeral I said she was a time traveler and she only graced this earth for a little while as your baby did and now they have returned from whence they came the whole matter is did we watch over them while they were in our car and I think I did the best I could and you did too for you got your baby to the point where they had to return and at that point they left us and now its our job to thank God for the time he loaned them to us so look up learn to face the facts, hear the truth, & love every moment that you shared that beautiful child as I do for love was the first thing I heard and the last thing I heard,death is only the separation of the spirit from the body and my child lives on the spirit and God has that spirit as he has yours so cheer up my friend you've made it another day and every day that you understand is love from your child it will make you get up to face the day that your child would have enjoyed so live today with love in your heart that God had bestowed on you.be blessed
Hi karen,you knew your son better than anyone & you know his ways,the life he lived & how he lived it and it sounds as if you have a heart for God so your child must have had that same mindset and the sudden way he left only means that this life can have some sudden pain that leaves us baffled,Ben is with the Lordfrom the way you said in one of your other posts and sudden death does not determine our Eternal Destiny but the way we lived and loved before that that sudden tradegy takes place that's why it behooves all of us to live each day in the life of love & grace so that we may meet God at whatever road that may end suddenly and that my my friend is the call on all of us who have the desire to meet God at the end of the journey of life.So I say to you that Isaiah 26:3 says:the Lord will keep you at peace if your mind is staye on him and trusting in him. As of now may you be at peace with the knowledge that God seeks to share his peace and love with you so that you can be all that your family needs and not spend your days wanting to die for your son would not want you take your life and miss the joys of telling all that know you and him the love that you share & continue to share.I feel my daughter is as alive as ever but not on this side with me but I live that I may someday be with her but I know that this physical life took her away not God and the accident took your child away not God. God receives not takes Jesus said in John 14 that I go to prepare a place for you that I may receive you unto myself and for others God in his mercy receives our love ones when different tradegies ,illnessess etc;takes them and their hearts are right with him God take the wicked in their craftiness but precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.(Psalm 116:15)so Karen live your life in peace one day at a time & things will get better day by day with joy of knowing how much your child loves you & wants you to continue on not in sadness but in peace.God bless you is my prayer for your peaceful days ahead. So hold your head as your child would want you to and display his love and your love that others may see the love you have for one another as I do my daughter and share a love for each other that was visible on this side that all may that still exist whie she's on that side so cheer up Karen and may our love be an exampl for you & others to show your love and not the despair that the world wants to see.Love you and look up all.
Thank you for sharing. I am not familiar with this group, but it doesn't really matter the name of the group ,as long as you are sharing with other parent's that have lost children. We have a great new's letter I can mail you if you want to share your address with me. We try to include some good self help each month.Talking about spelling... The DR I worked for for 20 years told me once that I was a great Nurse, but could not spell worth a darn....... keep in touch... where are you from????
karen, thank you for responding....if you find her please let me know. Sorry about your son.That was so recent...I do remember the intense pain. I lost my only daughter 7 years ago......Life is better now, but I will never forget the the first few days, weeks, months and years.Only God's presence and Love got me to were i am today.....A member of (The Compassionate Friend's group that am co-leader of) son was killed on a bike two blocks from her home about 2 years ago. How interesting. I will keep you close @ heart ! If you need to vent I will always have an listening ear........Ruby Ellard
