Accepting a loss

My heart has been heavy since Mary called to tell me that our niece ended her life that day. I couldn't catch my breath then the tears flowed between us washing up so many memories of times we spent with her. Most of mine are of her as a child. That precious sweet, and unique smile that warmed you from head to toe the minute she saw you. She was quiet, and sensitive, but could belt out a laugh to top them all. She was almost a carbon copy of her mom in looks!
She'd been very troubled for some time, feeling the kind of pain pills couldn't stop. We've wondered over the past few days if there was something we could have done to stop this from happening, and I guess that will always linger! Just knowing she's resting in our Lord's arms, a child of God, feeling only love no pain gives us a sense of peace. Learning to live without her in our lives will be hard, but she will never be forgotten for she remains in all our hearts till we see her again.
Love you dear Dawnie
Aunt Bev

What an awesome God we serve

Yes, we do serve an awesome God..He has given us the Bible to learn all about HIM and what he wants for HIS children. He wants us to share with those we come into contact with how much He loves them. I know most of you have been blessed with God's love, and all that represents. While doing a journaling page the other day I was writing how and when I pray...before I go to bed, when I awake in the morning, for all things I do throughout the day I'm praising him, giving thanks for things that go right, and even for things that don't for I know there's a lesson in it. I pray for family, friends, those I don't know, for our service men and women, for those who are lost especially...praying you might say is something I do just about all the time!! it's up there with breathing for me..hehehe!!! One thing I've realized tho, all the praying I do is usually for everyone and everything, but for me! Wonder why that is?? hummm... Recently my husband, and I have been challenged to make major changes in our lives. We have prayed for God to lead us where He wants us to be, and we know we are where he wants us to be right now because the stress of trying to keep a business going when all the signs said to close it down. God does close doors when HE knows it's best, but then opens another knowing it's a better way!!! We are praising Him today for showing us we could survive doing things HIS way..eheheh!!! Boy some of us have to be hit over the head to SEE...sigh...So for all those out there who are struggling for reasons known only to you, please continue to pray for God to show you the way! And don't be afraid to ask your family and friends for help either. What are we for if it's not to help those around us!! That's God's way!!

My thoughts and prayers are with those who have shared some of their concerns about this economy and how it's affecting them, and for those who might be feeling stress from it too. (((gentle hugs))) I love you!

About Me

My photo

Am married to a great guy and we've raised 5 of his and my children...they have blessed us with 14 grandchildren.  My passion is creating all forms of art, and handmade jewelry.  On the side I still make some bouquets for weddings and enjoy playing with our 3 pugs.  Living in the mountains gives us such a sense of freedom as we are on 5 acres filled with tall old trees surrounding our little home...we have all kinds of wildlife visiting us daily!!!
