MATTHEW 28: 5-6

The angel said to the woman, do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay."

As we celebrate this Easter we are thankful for the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I am so thankful that he gave his life for me personally and for others as well. 

As we gather this Sunday to worship, may the Lord bless you and your's. Enjoy family time and a good dinner with all the trimmings, but remember the true meaning of Easter.

A Mothers Love/Loss of a Child

Where Do I Began

The beginning........ How, why, where and so on.............going through life with never a thought of loosing your child.
In 2009 I received that dreadful call at 10pm. Surely this is not for me. I am just dreaming. The call said to get to the hospital as soon as possible. When I arrived I expected to get to his room to hold his hand and tell him I loved him. Everyone around me were in total shock. Finally it happened. I am sorry but he didn't survive. Now I am really dreaming. This is not happening. BUT IT DID!
I didn't get that last hug and kiss from my first born son. How was I going to make it without him. I had no idea about the grieving of a loved one. What do you do, where, and why? For the next year it was a fog and my life continued day by day. Questions were asked and no answers, rather none that I wanted to hear. It was a slow process and it continues to be a daily struggle. It has been almost nine years now and I still have that hole in my heart and my mind is broken going in so many directions. It's truly one day at a time, one song, one picture, one memory, that laugh, the last phone call. They don't exist anymore. Your life changes FOREVER.
I had him for 43 years of his life and as I look back I have so many memories and cherish them. I have friends and family who have lost a child as well and we just have to move forward. It becomes a "new life" with so many changes. Some are much harder to accept, but we have to continue and move forward.
I am blessed with 3 other children, 12 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren and a wonderful understanding husband. Without my Heavenly Father and my precious family......where would I be?
No, grieving does not go away. It will always be there. People grieve in many different ways and for some they prefer not to talk about the loss. I feel better when I share my thoughts and I hope whoever reads this that they will remember to be patient with loved ones when they are going through their loss.

St Patrick's Day Celebration

According to History, St. Patrick was a missionary to Ireland. He was a much adored figure for Irish Catholics as the one who brought Christianity to the Emerald Isle.

St. Patrick’s Day is associated with many things, all of which have different meanings for different people: wearing green, breaking Lent, making an attempt to try out your cĂșpla focal, going to a parade and, of course, drowning the shamrock. Yet what is the real meaning of Saint Patrick’s Day and what is its true importance for Ireland today?

Sharing Kindness and Love

Touching base with everyone. Hope you are ready for Spring. I am ready to move forward and get out of the muggy wet weather, how about you? 

Sharing a little kindness and love.

Where ever we go we should always make it a point to show kindness. We never know what people are going through on a daily basis whether mentally, emotionally, physically or financially.
Make it a point today and always to have consideration for others and show a little kindness.  Love and kindness is what this world needs more each day.
Blessings to all!

Hope and Sunset

Our hope is to be able to end each day in a beautiful way with a Grateful Heart. At the end of the day all we need is Hope, and strength to...
