I just lost my best friend who was like a little sister to me. Her name is Rosalind. I had talked with her on August 11, 2011 and we ended our conversation with "I will talk to you tomorrow." The next day she passed away while serving in the kitchen at her church. My little sister loved the Lord and she was so happy doing the work of hospitality for the church. She loved God, her church, pastor and wife and people. We always talked about the goodness of God and she knew that she had Favor…Continue

I wrote this poem during the grieving of my Mother's death. Within this poem was God's answer to my question.
THE MASTER'S PLAN
Mom softly called me on the phone one day
Come go with me, help me prepare for my going away.
We quietly picked her casket, dusty rose and pink
Her makeup she wanted done by Johnny her godson.
She asked me to type her program - the Order of Service plan
The songs to be sung, the scripture to be…

I e joyed reading your heartfelt words about your sister. It sounds like you had a close loving relationship. I feel this way about my sister. I desire to give you my deep condolence. We never know when the sting of death will overtake us yet there is a beautiful hope for our loved ones which helps us make the next step and the next day. I often think of Jesus words of a guarentee of a resurrection at John 5:28,29. This helps me to endure the pain of losing my loved ones. I hope to communicate with you I. This page soon.
Thank you for opening your heart to us and helping us see your sister thru your eyes
May you have peace
Hey Dianne, I don't know if you remember me, but I sure do remember you. You gave me inspiration and I prayed about it. Now, today is Survivors of Suicide Day. I think of my friend who committed suicide some time ago now, but I will never forget trying to get his attention "and I could see right through him. I mean he was on empty and help didn't come soon enough.
Dianne- Hi, I just read amessg. you posted to Linda G. Re: her husband Neal & what she should be doing with her life now & I think you are a blessing! Reading that messg. made me feel good also knowing that God's love is being shared & lifting people up even while those same people are grieving. It's like one of my on-going prayers "to be blessed so that I will be a blessing to others"- that' you! Sending up a prayer for you today in Jesus' name-Hugs, Christy
Dianne, thank you so much for your words. Everyone of them are so true. It is such a coincident that what you said about mine and Neal's love. At his funeral I spoke and part of what I said was that Neal & mine's life together was a love story and even though he was gone, our love would continue through our sons and their families. I have let God into my life more since Neal has been gone and I pray to him to show me what he has in store for me. I know he will, I just have to listen good. Only in the last 2 to 3 months has my mind been coming out of the blur it has been in since Neal died. It is like reality hit me and I know Neal is gone. I have started to try to eat better and last week I started doing some cleaning. So even though it has only been almost 15 months, I am trying to deal with things day to day. Thank you again for your words and not 2012 is NOT going to suck me in, God is by my side. Hugs
