Hi all
today is the day that we put mom's Body in a earthly grave .. I think that is when a lot finalize that a parent or loved one is gone .. for me it was when she took her last
breath .. I will think of my mom as long as I live on the earth .. then one day I will be with all my loved ones in Heaven . for many they think of this as a home and when
you are gone you are just gone .. for me it is way past that .. We have a war going on .. God verses the devil NEWS FLASH GOD WON .. THE devil just wants you to think hes winning
.. God has a plan .. and it will all go as planned .. nothing surprises him .. this is just another day here for me .. Its Valentines day .. So many celebrate with a loved one
I wish that we would all learn .. one thing Cherish each other daily .. not just because you have a special so called day .. come on .. We take each other and God so for granite .
I pray this year to never ever take God for Granite .. I hope I remember this day .. and if you have loved ones This could be the last time you see them .. Don't take them for
Granite .. Say I love you .. Say I apologize how bad can that hurt .. I can tell you nothing like wishing you had when its to late .. Death does that to us makes us think ..
Why do we wait until tragedy strikes to tell God how much you love him .. Do it daily .. then tell all you loved ones daily .. If you have a spouse determine to let God
change you this year .. we have to decrease so he increases . Do you love yourself ? Why not .. make a list if you could change yourself what would you change .. then ask
God to help you .. lets be the best all the way around this year .. Don't dwell on bad things dwell on Good things .. Well I pray this time next year we can look back and say
wow I have so changed and for the better .. don't try to change others that is not our Job .. Just let God change you .. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY .. TELL SOMEONE YOU LOVE THEM TODAY
MAKE THEIR DAY .. God loves you and so do I .. lets be a Blessing to someone today .. love Betty

    Betty, my heart goes out to you in this loss...and I pray when my time comes to say goodbye to my Mom, that I do so with grace, dignity and love, knowing she is going home...as you have with yours.
    May the God of all comfort hold you close, be your peace, protection and provision in the time ahead.

    I am sorry to hear of your loss. I know that you will miss her but you so remember that you will join her someday. I too believe that is what got me through the deaths of both my parents and my brother. They all were way to young but we can't question why God needed them home.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. emoticon

    Excellent message! Even though your emotions are raw and your heart is grieved, somehow today you still managed to share profound knowledge.

    Where will we be next year? Same place but one year older? Or each of us could be in fresh territory after having stretched and strained to improve.

    I pray you feel comforted in His everlasting arms today....

    Betty, even though your mother is gone for the time being, she still lives on in your heart and through some of her characteristics deposited in you as her daughter. You are a living legacy of her life and I'm sure that many around you can see her through you. Be the best YOU that you can be and look forward to seeing her when you cross over into heaven where she now resides. That's graduation day for us believers! We get to see Jesus and those who have gone on before us! But for now, there's still work to be done and you are a vital part of what God wants to do in the earth today. Thanks for being a light shining out for Him! May He continue to comfort you in your loss!

    Amen! I agree with everything you said. We need to tell others how much we love them; we enjoy hearing that too.
    For Christians, we never die, we just move to a better, forever destination.

    Betty, thank you for sharing. I so agree that we need to tell our loved ones every day how much we love them. May you always be able to remember your Mom, and remember her love for you, and may others who you love know that you do. God bless you, Ravyna
