My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction: For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain therof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
Proverbs 3:11-18

So Very Long and Painful

The journey ahead of a person, who has lost a loved one.  Daily, reminders pop into view and the heart breaks again.  Tears flow and even anger pushes out of their very beings.
They say the road to healing is: Get sad ...get mad... and get glad.......but that is only part of  the healing.  Many other things play a huge role in the daily acceptance of this loss.  The void is there and there's no going back.  Too many "what if's" will come to mind and too many "if only's" will cause bitter memories to cloud the good, sweet memories.
I remember feeling numb, for what seemed 6 months or more.  I just couldn't pull out of this dull useless feeling.  It took me a good year, to finally start letting things go and make an effort to move on.  I can only guess, that it wasn't just me who felt this way, but many other family members.  
With God's help, all things  are possible and surely we can grasp hold of his mighty hand, when comfort is needed.  At times we just break down and cry out to him for help.  In his wonderful time, the help he knows we need comes.........how great is that?

It Is Finished

My neighbor, passed last night, after only a few hours at home.  That's where she wanted to be and they brought her home.  It's hard to accept and I'm only a neighbor, but when that final time comes, it's very harsh on all who are near.  I will miss waving to her, when I drive by, and pray that her family will find comfort in the fact that she no longer is in pain.  Now, they must find ways to move forward, in life and accomplish goals that she hoped they would.  
So long, neighbor.....RIP

The Watch Begins

It's been awhile since, I've been on here and written anything.  This subject is something that's hard to write about, but it's been part of this blog, through the years..........
Today, I noticed a large truck pull up across the street.  It had medical equipment to deliver. A medical bed was delivered, meaning one thing.  This is a sad day to view, this action meaning, my neighbor is losing her battle with lung cancer.  She has fought it for over 3 years and now I am witnessing her finally stages as it drags the very life out of her fragile body.  I've sent prayers up to God, through those years, hoping for a miracle, but knowing that this type of cancer, doesn't give up.  Now I can only pray for her comfort during these final stages and for the comfort of her family as they endure the loss of their Mom, wife and grandmother.....along with a very large extended family.

I Say Thanks

All too often, we get caught up in life's hectic daily activities, and forget to pray or thank God, for his goodness.  I'm so guilty of this and try to remind myself of the good things, in my life and what God does daily for me and my husband,  Just post a "public Thank You" to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for his daily protection, provisions, and kindness...........how about you all?

God is Good

After only a few minutes, yesterday, with the weather temps dropping, my hot water lines froze, before I realized it.  I fell into silent prayer, for God's help and reminded him that he's never let me down before, and has always answered my sincere prayers.......... About and hour ago, my cold water in the kitchen, started working and a few minutes later, so did the hot water.  I'm so thankful to our Lord, for his constant help in time of need and daily as my husband and I go about our daily works.
Thank you Lord for your answer to my prayers, for protection and help.  Thank you for your daily help to make it through and on to another day you gift us with.......

As we search our thoughts about, this past year and remind ourselves of things, gone by. Let us also look forward to the coming year with hope and love in our hearts, as we reach a milestone and move on to another. Remember the one's we've lost and the one's yet to come, for our future depends on the new one's that come to us from now on. God bless you all and may you have wonderful peace, this coming year, no matter what we may face.
God's peace and love to you my friends and readers.......

Kingdom of Heaven Library

I came across this website while surfing my facebook page, and thought it might be something I could utilize with this blog.  While I have put the link to the website here in my blog, I found that the strict "Terms of Service", were something, that I might overstep, should I get into posting here on my blog.  
Times, are that I will get into the spirit of things that I am posting about and place "references, quotes, pictures, scriptures, etc. into the posting to make my subject more interesting.  It's here that I may overstep some of their rules.  This is something I wouldn't want to do, so therefore, I did not make an account with them.  
Here is the link should you decide that you can comply with their terms of service rules, better I I possibly would.    https://kingdomofheavenlibrary.com/   I found some good information and scripture reading there, which I'm sure will be of benefit to many people.  I hope that posting this link will prove a positive effort for the website, as well as this blog.
