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…Continue

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…Continue

Life everlasting is promised.

This grand future is sure.
We can live forever.
It’s worth all endeavor.
God’s promise is faithful.
His Word will come…Continue

Can you see, with your mind’s eye,
Peoples dwelling together?

Life without tears and pain.

Cause no harm to each other.
Food will be there. All will share…Continue

Some one shared this link on you tube with me and I found it very insightful. I agree all of us struggle with some sort of depression and many of us deal with it in different ways. Some good and some bad ways...As I read my scriptual text this morning, I am reminded that we need to support those that are weak ACTS 20:35... Practice giving ...&.Always remember that the God of tender mercies is there for us in this trialsome time. I needed that this morning.....
So... an elderly friend of mine is wondering who she should select as her power of attorney... I know its not always easy because families cant get along and no one wants hurts feelings.... That's why families need to communicate now and figure out things like this...It's so much drama when our love ones die and the family is fighting NWT Prov 21:5

Care giving causes mix emotions ..feelings of loss, shock and confusion...We need to share our thoughts with a trusted friend..Also pour out our feelings to God...he gives us that inner peace... Some of us have wrote our feelings on this site.
Trouble and sorrow is ahead...So I best prepare in advance
regarding their wishes NWT PS 90:10
As a watch the television, I hear of great sadness in Charleston.
They say that a young white male shot up a black church..
As a watch television, I see methodist killing methodist and
christians killing christians
As a watch television, I see tribal wars in other nations.
Can we all just get along? I hate the racial tension among us
I cant wait to the time when every nation can serve together without killing each other -NVT Revelation 7:9
Researchers say that we should keep it simple and dont try to hide our grief. However, what about autistic children? Do they really grasp the concept of death? NVT 1 Cor 14 :9 I think about my sister daily....

I ran across an interesting article regarding suicide today.."More than a quarter of all suicides in South Korea were committed by people 65 years of age or older. Reasons: attitudes towards the care of elderly and economic factors. Less than half of people in Korea think that children should care for your parents- AWAKE MAY 2015
The same attitude may be evident here in the US...How sad !What about the principle honor your mother and father ?- Eph 6:2

Some of us get down when people say " I know how you feel"... We need a little more compassion (1 Peter 3:8) Instead say, I am happy to see you or its good to see you today....Also its best not to say are you doing okay..." Nope I am not okay!"... Oh well, we are all imperfect and we mean well.

I wish we could go Back in time....to change the bad things that happen to us..
Laughter is good medicine for us when we get down- NWT Prov 17:22

Leave me alone depression
Dont you see I am trying to get rid of you
Leave me alone depression
Dont you see I am trying to excercise
Dont you see I am trying to cope
Dont you see I am trying to eat properly
Dont you see I am with my friends
Leave me alone depression
Come quickly the God of comfort and tender mercies
Can I throw my burdens on you ?
All of us suffer from anxiety. It may be good anxiety or bad anxiety.When we dwell on things that are true....rightous..chaste and lovable.... You get that peace of God....if our anxieties get so bad that it interferes with our personal life.,we may need to seek professional help and its definitely nothing wrong with that. I know with some of us its a trust issue. However, I know we can find that right someone wecan talk to to help deal with our unwanted anxieties.

I too lost a friend in the crash over the French Alps. I hear that the pilot had some suicidal tendencies in the past....Many of our family and friends suffer from mental illness and unfortunately we may too.
I took this class called Mental Health First Aid and it was very beneficial to me because now I know how to respond if somene is undergoing a mental health crisis. Its similiar to First Aid but you deal with a mental health crisis. That can be just as traumatic.
