Shane Whalen
This Prayer Circle is Dedicated to my son Shane Whalen Who Passed Away On March 15, 1999 at the Age of 24, & All Other Children


Start a prayer circle for bereaved parents who have lost a child.


There are many of us out there who have lost a child, and it is devastating. It changes the outlook on life, plunges you into a depression, and you think that the feelings and thoughts you have nobody else could possibly relate to. I think a prayer circle for bereaved parents would only benefit us and help us on our journey of grief. This Circle is one of Love, where a Grieving Parent can safely come to for Prayers, and to talk about their feelings.

Hello my dear sister,
I know you decided to remain offline, but that doesn't stop us from loving and wondering about you, and how you are coping. I pray you received your heart's desire from Our Heavenly Father, and we're all thinking of you today, praying, and sharing our hearts across the miles. I know Solange's Mass must have been a comfort to you and I hope some of her friends were able to attend too. Love you lots my sister, and I ask Our Blessed Mother to wrap you in her Mantle of love, for who knows better than she your pain. And may all the Angels minister to you today, on Solange's Anniversary. We are all one with you,
Much love & Tender Hugs,
Sandy

AY me dear sisters, I'm back in my sister's house, I tried to have an encounter with Solange, but no luck, but I will keep on trying, what a deep valleys days, I am sure you know about it, last night we had a mass for Solange, it was so wonderful to see all her friends there, there were more that 35 young girls and boys beside my family and friends, when the mass was over , the young people stayed there in the dark in front of the church, and today Juny called me, they decided to go out "with Solange", they went to their favorite Club and had fun like Solange was there with them, then Juny and Natasha (2 of her best friends) decided to go to Tasha's boyfriend appt and they decided to drink and cry out and let the feelings go out, so they scremead and cryed all night long, of course Juny called to say they were not driving, but they let the pain out, I have to do the samething, I have been numb, my pshycho told me that it was my brain (phischy) protecting me , but I had to get it all out, well I could not. I was strong to all of Solange's friends and her ex boyfriend, but tonight I am going to be honest, I am going to get drunk and let all my feelings out otherwise I think I will get a heart attack, I can not believe Solange is gone from my sight, and I need to cry to badly, I know that you all my Angel sisters will understand, I refused to accept my daughter will not be with me, I have not be abled to see her, I am going crazy with pain, and please don't judge me I am getting drunk tonight (that will not take so much) and I will try to be out of it. If you have another suggestion I am open to it, but please tell me how can I get me daughter back?. No matter what I still love you all my sisters, but tonight I will not pray, tomorrow I will, promise. I love you and I thank God for all of you Selva

Ay my sister, you go right ahead and get drunk - but promise that you will stay at Nancy's, OK? The Mass and all who attended are such a tribute to the mark Solange left here on earth, with so many people attending, it must have warmed your heart! I'm sure they miss their dear friend too very much. NOBODY is going to judge you, as I said, have a drink for all of us too, and we'll toast to our children together! Then I pray you have a good cry, let it out until you can't cry anymore, and then go to bed and get a good night's sleep. You're probably very numb right now and in a little shock, so that's why you can't cry, but if you have a few drinks, you should be able to cry until you can't cry anymore.
We're all here for you, love you bunches my dear sister, and our prayers go out to you now and always!
Lots of love & Tender Hugs,
Sandy

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts...For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

Heavenly Father, ~ I come to you very early this morning ... Thanking You for this day. Thank You for providing this wonderful refuge; a place where I can come to express my most inner feelings and not be judged. Thank You for making it possible to mention my child's name and not be judged in any way, or made to feel that I should just forget over it and move on, as though she never existed. Thank You, Father, for giving me the courage, and the wisdom to forgive both friends and family who do not understand how much it hurts sometimes when no one calls or come by to say, "I remembered today is Diane's birthday, and I was just thinking about you and wanted to let you know." Thank You, Father, for my family of Angel Moms, who made sure that I would not have to face the day alone. :)


LOVE2U
8/18/2003 02:51

Father, I thank you for carrying me through my dark and oh so painful valley days, when I felt I had nothing more to live for. My child was gone, my faith was gone, and my world had turned to complete darkness. Many times, I asked You ... No, I begged you to just let me die. Lord, the pain was just that great! But, You, in Your wisdom, knew the end for me was not to be until my work here was finished. Once the powerful storm that shattered my heart and soul had passed over, I saw a ray of sunshine coming through the dark, cumulus clouds that had not been strong enough to hold back a mother's tears.


LOVE2U
8/18/2003 03:00

Now, Father, as I approach the 7th anniversary of my child's passing, unlike in the past ... I know that I won't have to go it alone, or "feel" that no one cares. Thank you for revealing to me that even during the dark period, when I first learned what had happened, I had You, and our Lord and savior, and the Holy Spirit on my side. Thank You, Father. Now, I realize I have Diane and all the other guardian angels, and all Angel Moms, to pray for me, and make sure that I am never alone during my hours of sadness. It gives me such comfort and peace, just knowing such unconditional love exists.


LOVE2U
8/18/2003 03:05

Finally, Father, I pray that You will hold our sister, Selva, in Your arms, and comfort her. Please let her know how much we love her, and that we would never, never judge her in any way. I ask that You would assure her that You understand, and having been once, where she is now, so do we. Help her to "Let it out!" Help her to release the pain that is building up inside of her heart. God, please, give her beautiful visions of her Solange, walking in the heavenly gardens with all the other guardian angels. Let her know that crying out and expressing her pain is all a part of the healing process. Again, Lord, let our dear Selva know in her heart that there is never a need for her to apologize about anything she feels, says, or decides to do. Convince her, Lord, that all we have for her here in our circle of love, is love, prayers, warm and tender bear hugs, words of comfort, and understanding. Let her know that we say what we mean and we mean what we say. We love our Selva, Lord. She has helped all of us by bringing us so much love and joy along the way ... Even as she grieves for and misses her beautiful Solange. Father, please let her know that not only is it OK ... It is necessary to keep on expressing her pain because that is the only way to heal her shattered heart. Thank You, Father, for hearing my prayer and for our dear sister, Selva. Hold on to her, Lord, because we really, really need her to walk with us and share all the love & bear hugs. Please give her peace of mind, Father. I ask these things of You,in Your Son, Jesus name, Amen

Dear Sandy, ~ Thanks for informing us about Donna, and Deb's computer problems. I join you in praying for Donna, and I pray that Deb's computer problems will soon be over. I also pray that the restored power will continue for you and others affected, and that there will be no more outages! God bless you, dear Sandy, and keep you in His loving care!

Dearest Selva,
I feel your pain. I too have been having a very hard time letting my feelings out. And I too got drunk to try and relieve some of the pain. I was able to cry and cry and cry but the pain was still there in the morning...so I don't recommend drinking. I too need so desperately to contact my angel, but I guess God doesn't think we are ready yet. I keep praying and praying and I guess it will come in due time. Gosh, I wish it would hurry up for both of us. Having a mass for Solange was a beautiful thing to do. Aaron's one year anniversary is coming up shortly and I have been trying to decide what I want to do to honor him. I do not belong to a church (but I do believe in God) and want to do something very special. Maybe some of you angel moms could give me some suggestions? Perhaps what ya'll did, etc. I am thinking about a candlelight vigil and balloon lift off. I miss him SO bad and cannot or will not believe he is gone either.
I had a long talk with God on Saturday during a long drive to my parents house. I have decided to make some changes in my life. Changes that I am not sure of yet, but I am asking him to guide me.
Verna,
When is your Diane's anniversary? I want to make sure I remember to say an extra special prayer for you that day.
Sandy,
I almost called you this weekend, but than I decided to not to bother you and work things out on my own. I think about you often and wonder what all of you sound like and look like. I can't wait till we will finally get to meet in person. Soon....I hope....
Well, I am back online at work and I promise to check in more often and write more often. My brain is scattered most of the time and can't seem to focus on anything for too long.
Peace be with all of you.
Lisa

Verna, thank you so much for your prayers and e mails, I'm sorry I was a day late for Diane but I was off line, but you know that all our Angels are together, that I am sure of, they have become a family just as we have, and they are all happy to meet such wonderful Angels in Heaven.

Hello dear Miss V, once again, wise, beautiful words and prayers for all. And oh how we can relate to how you felt and what you went through, BUT you're right, with Diane's 7th year Anniversary coming up on the 31st, you are NOT alone, not only do you have God, but all of us here at this Circle to lean on and give you love, support and prayers to help you through yet another special day.
Much love & Hugs,

Hi dear Lisa, it's so good to see a post from you! Sweetie, you will receive your heart's desire from God when He knows it's the right time. Actually, you may already have had some signs and perhaps dismissed them as being 'coincidental' - I don't believe in coincidences. Sometimes we are given little signs and we dismiss them, thinking 'nah, it's my imagination'. The first year Shane passed away, I was like you and Selva, desperately wanting contact with him. Every Mom does! It wasn't until around the year and a half mark that Shane came to me in the dream state - but it was NO dream! To this day, I can tell you word for word what we talked about, how beautiful he looked, and the wonderful feeling it left me with. Since then I've had other signs, and quite often I just KNOW he's around! So be patient, as hard as it is, and it will happen for you! I'm so sorry you're having a difficult time right now, but with Aaron's 1st year Anniversary coming up, it's very understandable. The 1st year mark has to be one of the worst in my opinion, because everything is still so very fresh in your mind and heart. Oh, a candlelight vigil and releasing Balloons sounds wonderful! Perhaps you could write Aaron a note or letter, put it into one of the Balloons, and when you release it, the Angels will carry it up to Heaven for him. Just a suggestion, sweetie. Perhaps some of the other Moms will have some other ideas for you, a way to make the day personal and meaningful to both you and Aaron. Whatever changes you want to make in your life, God will guide you and help you, put your trust in Him, and I'll be praying for you. Oh Lisa, you can call me whenever you want, don't ever think it's a bother!! That's wonderful that your back online at work, yes, we expect to hear from you more now, :) God's blessings to you dear Lisa,
Lots of love & Hugs,
Sandy

Hi my dear Deb! You're back online, so that means your brother was able to fix your puter, hurray! I was worried about mine too, it's not good for it to suddenly crash without power, but Praise God it's OK. Oh sweetie, that's nice of you, but we're all here for each other, that's what this Circle of Love is about! We can all come together in heart and prayer to help each other on valley days and those special days that cause us such pain. You're always there for all of us, my dear Deb, especially on all other Mom's special days with your love and support and prayers! Ah, well, grief is sometimes like that Deb, your's was just below the surface, and all it took was your hubby saying something to bring it out and have yourself a good cry. Oh gosh, that's terrific that Veronica has a website, and you can see pictures of Skyla on it, and hear how she's doing!! Yes, dear Deb, one day you will see and hold your precious grandaughter, and yep, we're all still praying for it to happen and I know it will!! I'm so happy that you're a big part of this Circle, every Mom here makes it the special Circle that it is!
Lots of love & prayers to you too, dear Deb,
Love & Hugs,
Sandy

Hi my dear sister, just like Deb, we thank you, and the same applies to you, that is what this Circle of Love is all about! Yes, I guess it was just Deb and I that experienced the Blackout, but thankfully all is well now and I pray that they fix the problem permanently, :) It's funny how you just take things for granted, like electricity and water, and then when something like this happens, it makes you stop and realize how blessed we are to have it, so many in the world don't.
Love you too my sister, and where would I be without all of you who make this Circle the special blessing that it is!
Much love my sister, & Hugs too,
Sandy
