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.

My dear sister Verna you are such a gifted Angel, what a beautiful poem for Lisa, I am sure she appreciates it. Billie, what can I say, you are so new at this, going through your own pain and yet you are here with us, well my dear sister, we are all here for you too, keep on coming back and you will find a lot of understanding, love and prayers, and that is just what we need. Sandy my dear sister, I am still in valley days, trying to work long hours to keep my mind busy, but no luck. Donna my dear sister, I have not been able to write much lately, but I want all of you to know that you are all in my prayers, every night when I go to sleep I ask God to help us all, this is so difficult, that only He can helps us to go on. I love you all my sisters. Selva

Hi Angel Moms,
Thank you all SO SO much for the special words and prayers on Aaron's 1st anniversary. I have this meditation book that I read each morning called "Angel Wisdom". I bought it right after Aaron died and read it for a while than put it up. I have recently been reading the meditations each morning as soon as I wake up for about a month now and I have to say they really help. The meditation for the day on Aaron's anniversary was about gratitude and boy it really hit home and helped tremendously, along with all of your prayers. It was a very sad day but I was able to see how grateful I am to be given Aaron for 19 years. God truly gave me a blessing when he gave me my children and I will always be grateful for the time I had here on earth with Aaron but am looking SO forward to being reunited with him in Heaven. I don't know what has come over me, but for today I am ok. I feel a peace that I have never felt before. I am sure it will pass and tomorrow will be different but for today I will enjoy.
Verna, the poem was absolutely beautiful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Bille, thank you too, I know you are at the very beginning of this journey and it took great courage to post to me when your own heart is so heavy. My prayers are with you also.
Thank you for all the cards and emails. Words cannot express the love I feel for all of you women.
Love,
Lisa

Hi my dear sister, I know you're going through a tough time right now, with so many tragedies happening in your office family, starting to experience the next step in the grieving process, but I'm very happy that your Dr. will still see you, with all that's happening, plus your house and mortgage, you need that extra professional help that she gives to you so well. And you KNOW we're always here for you too, always in our prayers, and without a doubt in our love! The peace of Our Lord to you my sister,
Lots of love & Hugs,
Sandy

Hi dear Lisa, the Angel Book sounds wonderful, and isn't it amazing that God put it into your heart to start reading it again, with the Meditation for Aaron's Anniversary being so meaningful for you! He truly looks after us, especially when we're hurting and place our trust in Him! I know it must have been a sad day, but I'm very happy to hear that today, you have His peace inside of you, helping you during this difficult time. Yes, what a precious gift our children are to us, for whatever amount of time we had with them, and one day we will be reunited with them, and what a day that will be!!
God bless you Lisa, and I'm so happy that our prayers and those of others helped you during a difficult day,
Much love & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Hi my dear sister Lisa. I am so glad the you found some peace, yes I believed we are all blessed, God gave us the oportunity to share x amount of years with His special Angels and we must be grateful for that. Of course we miss our Angels, but they are very happy now and we will see them again in God's time, Oh the encounter, that is what keeps me going, just the though of been reunited with my Solange again!. Keep on pressing on my dear sister. Love Selva

Hi my dear sister Sandy. Thanks for all your e mails, I really need it. I spent the weekend working, just finished, but I am glad, it keeps my mind busy.

Well I am tired and in valley days, so I will take one day at a time. I love you all my sisters, you have been the greatest help I could find, and I thank God for all of you. May God Bless you all. Love Selva

Good Morning Angel Moms, ~ What a blessing it is to be back online! I did something dumb. While trying to follow some instructions that Cheryl had given to me about signing off, I made the mistake of signing off in something called DOS mode (I think). Anyway, I had no idea what that meant, but I found out soon enough that I shouldn't have done that. Ha-ha! Then yesterday, when my son-in-law came by to check out my computer, I was in the shower and did not hear the doorbell, so he and Cheryl left me a note that they'd been by and that they would take care of things for me today. Well, this morning, when I came in to get coffee, there was my son-in-law, sitting at the computer, checking it out. As soon as I told him what I thought I had done to it, he fixed it in a few minutes. He then explained a lot of stuff about what I had done that I shouldn't have, and why! I just smiled and told him how grateful I was to him and Rue (my nickname for Cheryl), and that I would remember to never shut down in DOS mode again! ha-ha! Anyway, I had called late last night to tell Cheryl to come here to let you all know what happened and that I was OK, but then she couldn't get on at beliefnet, and was trying to get to the circle when I sent her an instant message this morning. I told her that thanks to her hubby, she no longer needed to. So thanks to our Lord, for sending James by early this morning, I am back online! Now, I have to catch up on reading back posts, then read two of five journals and give my opinions on each, then finish the editing assignments given to me by Leia; which are due Oct. 10th I believe! So, I have a lot on the burner today! All that, plus I am trying to get the house ready for my sister's arrival. They may be bringing her as early as next week. :) Thanks again, Angel Moms, for all your prayers and support. I appreciate all! Will try to get back to the circle later on tonight; but will keep all in my prayers and love!
Love & Angel Hugs,
Verna

Selva, when I asked James about the voice thing, he just laughed, and said, "OK, Mom, ... I'll bring it, but remember, .. You asked for it!" Ha-ha! So, I should have it soon! :)

Hello dear Miss V, was wondering where you were, now I know. Oh, I had to laugh when you said DOS - that program is a nightmare for me, ha, ha!! I have tried SO hard to learn it, but it still comes out 'Greek' to me, :) So I leave DOS alone, and I expect it to do the same for me, ha, ha!! That's wonderful that James fixed it for you, Chris is the same way, in 2 minutes he'd have it fixed too!! Oh gosh, you've got a lot of catching up to do, especially with your deadline for Oct. 10th - but I know you'll put the nose to the grindstone and get it done, :) Oh, that's wonderful that your sister may be coming next week, hurray, means she's much better and out of hospital!!
You're going to be da busy lady! Hmm, wonder what James means by that, ha, ha!! Let us know,
Lots of love & Hugs,
Sandy

Hi my dear sister, you're very welcome and thank you for your's! Oh, your poor co-worker, she must be so worried and stressed over her husband's illness!
I pray they found the source of the fever, and are treating it vigorously!!
My prayers are with them. Gosh yes, you must be tired having worked all weekend, it does help to take your mind off your grief, but I know it returns when your mind isn't occupied. I know my sister, take it easy, one day at a time, and make sure you get your rest too. Gosh my sister, that works both ways, we're blessed to have YOU here!!
Love you too, & lots of Hugs,
Sandy

Hi my dear Angel moms. Sandy please my sister again I did not know it was your birthday, I wish you Angel wishes, Hi all our Angel Moms,I am having deep valley days, went to my phsycho today and she said (like once before) yes the second year it's worse than the first, and wow, I am finding it so real. Just to let you know that no matter what I will keep on praying for all of us, Love Selva

Thank you dear Angel Moms, for all your beautiful Cards and good wishes! Yes, I had a terrific Birthday, no, I don't feel any older (or wiser) :) but it was a very good day! Palmer took me out to Dinner at Red Lobster, because seafood is one of my fave's, and then had my German Chocolate Cake for dessert. Thank you all for helping to make it the blessed day that it was!!
Oh my sister, don't worry about it, you sent me a beautiful Card yesterday anyway, and I loved it very much. I know you love me, and you know I love you! Thank you for the kind words and good wishes, and I wish the same for you and all the Angel Moms, we are all sisters of the heart. Yes, my dear sister, the 'reality' phase of grieving is slowly settling in, and it has a pain of it's own. I'm so happy you're still able to see your Dr. and you know you have our love and our prayers.

Lots of love & Teddy Hugs for all,
Sandy

Good Morning Angel Moms,
Today is the day I go to see Kim O'Neill (the medium, physic???). Remember when I won the free 1 hour session at the seminar? I am so excited but scared at the same time. Wish me luck! I will write back and let you guys know how it went, etc.
So, many questions....come to mind to ask but then I have to be careful that I want to hear some of the answers. You know what I mean?
Love to All,
Lisa

Selva,
My prayers are with you....I know how bad those valley days can be. I am glad you can still see your doctor though, maybe it will help. How did your trip to NY go? I don't remember reading about the details? Did I miss something?
Love,
Lisa

Hi Lisa. It is so great that you are going to the medium today, just relax and listen carefully so you can get the true meaning of the messages, it will be great if you could record it, please let us know, I will pray so that you will be able to get messages. My workshop wen well, Raymond Moody was brilliant also Dr. Brian Weiss he is a very sweet man, full of knowledge, he took us to the point of near regression, there were too many people, so he could not do a full regression, the 2 mediums were very show biz, like a comedy hour, I think I really received a message from Solange, but like I said there were so many people, that it was confusing.Good luck my dear sister, go there with an open mind, and please let us know. Love Selva

Hi my sisters, still in valley days, thanks so much for your e mails, it does help, I am into such valley days, I am trying to figure out how can I die without commiting suicide, so I figure if I can to kill Castro you know the Cuban dictator, but I can not tell you how this will be very confidentail info, but you see If I can be available to do that then it will not be suicide, so God can not take that against me. I should not be posting about this, but I don't think his intelligence agents will go to Beliefnet. I love you my sisters, but I am going nuts, I don't know what to do, and the pain keeps getting bigger, I know that you all understand, I don't want to be a burden, but really I need all the help I can get, so as usual I am been honest, I love you my sisters, what will I do without you? Love Selva

10/2/2003 22:43

Oh, my dear sister, we all wish so much we could take this awful pain away from you, the only way to get beyond this pain is to go through it, and your Journey to healing leads directly through your hurting. You know that many of us have Journeyed through that awful pain, and now we walk alongside you and other newly bereaved moms, being with you and comforting you. And so does God, however alone you might feel, please know that you are NEVER alone! One step at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time. Selva my sister, you know you're NOT a burden, now or ever!! As for your 'plan', we got you through trying to kill the rapist that has been caught, Praise God, and we'll get you through this one too!!! Seriously though dear Selva, we all know it's so very painful right now, we all know that pain, and that's why we tell you it will get better, we who are further along the Journey, know that is the truth, and I'm being honest with you too, it will slowly stop being there 24/7, and then in time, it settles into a quiet sadness that you learn how to live with, never forgetting, but being able to laugh, enjoy the day, and thankful for life again. Please just give yourself time, grief doesn't automatically end because you're starting into your second year, it's still early for you, and you know we're always here for you, with our prayers, but especially with our love. We love you too, and what would we do without you? So remember, no matter how bad it gets, you're never alone, God IS with you and so are we.
Love you my sister & Angel Hugs too,
Sandy

Dear God, ~ This is Solange ...

~ You know how much I love You Lord ~
I know you love me too.
But Lord I have a favor,
That I must ask of You.
You see My Mom is hurting,
Oh God she's hurting bad.
She misses my physical presence,
That makes her oh so sad.
And though I'm forever near her,
She can't feel me by her side.
I've tried so hard to reach her,
And it hurts to see her cry!
So God I come before Your throne,
To plead my mama's case.
I ask that you would ease her pain,
And wipe her tears away!
Oh God please give her courage,
Don't let her spirit die!
Please let her know that someday,
She'll know the reason why.
She'll know that it was just my time,
My work on earth was through.
But there is still so very much,
You have left for her to do!
Please let her know she's needed there,
To share some mother's pain.
For there are many longing,
To see their child again.
Please help her through her valley days,
Please lift her spirits high!
And if You will, please let her know,
That night ... I did not die!
My guardian angels surrounded me,
And shielded me with powerful wings.
They lifted me up, I felt no pain!
As I viewed that tragic scene.
The next thing I knew I was in heaven,
Being fitted for my angel wings!
With a heavenly body in a long white robe ...
I was presented to our Lord, the King!
Let my Mom know I'm her guardian angel now,
And that I'll forever be.
In Jesus' name I beg of you ... God,
Please set my Mom's spirit free!
In Jesus' name, Amen!

~I love you Mom ~
~ Always & Forever,
~ Solange ~

Dear Angel Moms, ~ My eyes are now filled with tears of joy! You see, after reading Selva's post above, I could not sleep. Y'all already know I don't like sleeping at night much anyway! :) So, I have been praying in the spirit for quite some time this morning, asking God to allow Solange to tell me what she wanted her mom to know. And, while in trance like state, the poem above was born. I know this may be hard to believe, but I've never written a poem on my own. NEVER! Ha-ha! Only what is given to me by God's Holy Spirit when I am troubled and pray for guidance. And somehow, God always shines through! To God be the glory! In Jesus' name, Amen!
