Hi Elaine. How are you doing today? I understand from your page that you are based in Australia. I hope one day to make it to Australia. Wasn't there a flood happening over there? Anyway, thank you for the invite to your page and welcome to my. I loss my mother ten years ago and it was so hard but thank God I made it through the storm. It was not easy at all for I made a lot of mistakes along the path of healing. In our sorrow and pain and even through the anger and blame, we hear our inner voice saying "be still" and don't fly off the handle, but sometimes our emotions get the best of us and after the storm has calmed, we wish we could have handle situations in a different manner; but God is always there for us to pick up the broken pieces. What made you decide to be a funeral officiant? I help with doing funeral programs for people who made not have the finances. I would love to make it a business, so I am trying to find out information on how to accomplish this passion. Even when lending a helping hand in this area, I find peace. Take care and I do hope to hear back from you.
