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.

Hi our dear Susan, oh gosh yes, this isn't whining! I'd be worried too if my son was in the same situation! I haven't heard yet today just where Ivan is at the moment, I have a friend in Puerto Rico who is in the midst of Hurricane Jeanne right now, hope to hear from he and his wife soon!
They have their priorities a little mixed-up, don't they, move the planes but not the people??
You know we'll be praying for this and for you too, a little peace for a worried Momma's heart. Please let us know tomorrow when you hear from Chris,
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

My Dearest Angelmoms, sisters and friends,

My prayers are with you all, especially those of you whose lives have been fraught with the added danger and stress from Hurricane Ivan. I pray that you and your families are all safe in Godís loving grace and that he will bring you comfort and strength.

Please keep us all informed on how you all are doing, when possible. Many of us are geographically far away from each other, but we all know that the hearts of loving friends keep us close together.

Selva, Mr.Bird, Susan, Verna, and all others whose lives have been affected by all these hurricanes and storms, please know that my heartfelt prayers are with you. I pray that God will give you strength, protection and comfort.

For all of us grieving and struggling Angelmoms (and friends) I pray that God will bless us with His comfort and hope.

Dear Heavenly Father,
You have promised us a life in eternity with you. I pray Lord that we see not only the work you do here but that we feel comfort in knowing that Your salvation still lies ahead of us as a promise yet unfilled. When we are struggling, Lord, please increase our hope. Help us to wait patiently for that final salvation. Our hope lies in You alone.
In Your Sons, name we pray,

For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, [then] do we with patience wait for [it].
Romans 8:24-25 KJV

And this is the promise that he hath promised us, [even] eternal life.
1 John 2:25

Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
Galatians 4:28

With much love and many prayers,

Hi our dear sister Marci, oh I know, these Hurricanes are terrible, they seem to be coming one right after the other, but yes, our hearts and prayers are with all here and everyone in the path. I finally heard from my friends in Puerto Rico who just went through Hurricane Jeanne, it was downgraded to a Level 1 when it hit them, but judging from the pic's they sent, still lot's of damage and flooding and some loss of life, sadly.
Beautiful Scriptural quotes dear Marci, comforting and full of hope! I pray that elephant's hide isn't as tough and the 'bites' are still staying small for you, You don't say how you're doing dear one, you know we care and will listen, always.
Lots of love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

9/18/2004 14:23

Hi dear Ang, thank's for letting us know about Miss V, you tell her that our hearts and prayers are with her too, and you also!
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Hi AngelMoms,
Thank you so much for all your prayers for my son Chris. With God's protection, he made it through Ivan safely. My husband and I are driving to Mississippi next weekend to visit him before he heads back to Germany.
My heart breaks for the people that lost so much. Except for my Mom who lives in Arizona and my brother who lives near San Diego, all of my relatives live in Puerto Rico and Florida. They all suffered a lot of damage. I also found out that the beautiful beachfront cottages were destroyed at Pensacola Naval Station. It is where we stayed last Christmas because it was the first Christmas without Alex and we couldn't bear to be at home. That place was so special to me because I believed my family healed a little bit during our visit there.
My prayers go out to everyone belonging to this special circle of love and hope.

Hi our dear Susan, now that is good news! I know you're breathing easier now, :-). I know, so much devastation, let's pray this is the end for Hurricanes! You have a terrific trip next weekend, dear Susan,
Much love, prayers & Hugs,

9/22/2004 20:44

Hello our dear Marci, how did your Birthday go today, haven't heard from you. If it was a very sad day our dear sister, then I pray you have wonderful Birthday dreams tonight, that would be a very special gift to you on your special day and I pray it does happen,
Much love, prayer & Birthday Hugs,

9/23/2004 18:47

Hi our dear sister Susan, I am so glad that Chris is OK, I hope you don't venture into Florida this weekend, once again we are under hurricane watch, the same old Jeanne is coming back our way, yes even in the National Hurricane Center which is based here in Miami, in FIU where Solange used to go , are wondering what happened, Jeanne made a U turn and back to our coast and it is supposed to hit us on sunday, but it will not hit where Chris is, this will only hit the east coast, so don't worry he will be OK. Love Selva

9/23/2004 18:53

Hi my dear sister Marci, remember we are all here for you, should I say Happy Birthday, yes why not, we have a lot to be thankful for, yes I know it is not the same, but remember that elephant we share , taking a byte at a time, please don't be a stranger, we are all in this and we all understand, I get my tantrums and I will post it here, because I know that everybody understands me, heck we are going through the worse pain in the World, so we have to let it out. Love you my sister. Selva

Dearest AngelMoms,
I'm getting ready to leave for Mississippi to visit my son. I am so excited to see him!!! He will be going back to Germany Saturday afternoon. I wish we had more time to spend with him, but I will take and treasure what I get. I went shopping and bought toys and clothes for my grandcuties. I got to speak with them the other day. Damion (3 years old) was so proud of himself. He learned his first Bible verse and recited it to me!! You could imagine how this GrandMomma felt!! That little boy made my day!! Dianna (5 years old) started Kindergarten last week. She had so much to tell me!!! I can't wait to see them again.
I am staying up past my bedtime tonight. I want to sleep all the way to Biloxi. My husband has a habit of playing his "KC and the Sunshine Band" cd on long car trips...oooo boy, I hope I fall asleep fast!!
Love and prayers to all,

Hi my dear sisters. Once again I am requesting prayers, we have "another" hurricane coming our way, the same one who missed us made a U turn and is coming back to Fla, we are all stressed out 4 hurricanes in 5 weeks, I have my shutters up, have water, can goods, dog and cat food, and we are supposed to start feeling the effects by tomorrow around 4:30pm, I know that God listens to all of us Angel moms, and here in Fla we need all the help we can get. I know that you will be praying and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Lisa, no matter what, my prayers will be with you 24/7. Love you all Selva

Love you our dear sister and our prayers are with you, may this be the LAST one,

To Chris & Mike, ~ My prayers are with you on this, very special day. A candle is lit for your beloved Stephanie on her 1st anniversary. I also dedicate this edited version of a poem [which I wrote a few weeks ago] in your Guardian Angel's memory:
God's peace & blessings,
[Miss V.]

Dancing on a Star

Each time I dance upon a star
For all the world to see
I always grace the biggest star
A sign ... To you from me.

I hope this star will remind you
As you gaze into the sky ...
A part of you went with me
Please know ... I did not die!

I know your heart is shattered
I know you can't understand
I know that even after all this time ...
You are doing the best you can.

On today may God reveal to you
The many signs I send
On summer days I cannot resist ...
I kiss you with the wind!

As I dance into Autumn, I wipe your tears
And help your heart to mend.
I come to you in various ways ...
Through our loved ones; ...
Our family, and friends!

Through them, I try to remind you,
Of fond memories we will always share!
Whether hilltop days or valley days ...
I hope you can feel me there!

May the signs I send remind you
We are never far apart
May they also continue to remind you that ...

You're forever in my heart!

~ Your Guardian Angel ~

"Grief is something we never get beyond. But you can still find joy! You do this by accepting the love and compassion of family and friends, ... Allowing it to permeate your being, ... until you become a joyful soul! It may take a long time, but the day will come when you will be able to say, in the words of an old spiritual, ... "Even after all I've been through, ... Still I find joy!" ~ LaVert

The words above was sent to me in an email by my friend and classmate: The Reverend LaVert H. Taylor of Lexington, VA shortly after he learned my daughter had been killed in a tragic chain reaction crash which involved 2 cars, 2 pickup trucks, and drunk driving. I received this email shortly before Christmas, [1999], at a time when I was feeling I could not deal with the pain any longer! I had felt this way many times before, but this time, ... It was a turning point. I still don't know why. I suspect that it was because it was time for the healing of my shattered heart, spirit, and faith to begin. I was deeply touched by the words of this grief counselor. However, I was even more inspired by words he didn't say. Words that were revealed by God. Words spoken to my inner spirit, which said, ... "I am deeply sorry about your loss. I wish I could take away your pain. I cannot do that, but I wish I could! Oh, how I wish I could! Although I can't take away your pain, I am willing to share your pain if you will allow me to! I know that as the holidays approach, this has to be a most difficult time for you. I am sending you this email, to remind you that you are not alone, and that others really do care, even if they don't have the words to express it! I care deeply! And, so does God!"

Hello Marci & Susan, :)

Marci, A late happy birthday to you! I wish I could keep up with all the special days like our Chief Angel Mom, Sandy. :) Thanks also for posting such beautiful prayers, scriptures & also the link to GriefShare. There are so many wonderful resources out there to help us on our grief journey. Praying that you are experiencing longer periods of peace which only our Lord and Savior can provide. As I said above, ... He knows, and He cares deeply!

Susan, ~ Praying for longer moments of peace for you, too! Your humor about your hubby's music made me laugh! Ha-ha! Boy, do I understand! Hee-hee! Only, with my hubby, it's the blues; BB King, etc. And, he makes sure he has the volume up so I can hear! Ha-ha! I can imagine the joy you feel being able to spend time with your son, Chris and family. Your little grandcuties sound so precious! I agree, even if it's a short visit, it is well worth it. Praying that you have a safe and enjoyable trip there and back.
Love & Angel Hugs,
[Miss V.]

Dear Angel Mom Sandy, :) Yea, I know, Ha-ha! But, I asked His permission, and since I'd been good for a long time, I was given permission to submit a few posts that I have been working on for a while now. So, now, I will be good and rest the hands/wrists again!
Love, & Angel Hugs, [OUCH!]:)

Hello dear AngelMoms, sisters and friends!

Heard from our Selva this morning, the worst is over for them, they are OK, but still have to stay inside, there are many power lines down and it's not safe to venture out yet.
Our dear Angelo, the Hurricane is hitting you very hard too, know that our prayers and love are with you and your family for safety, please post when you can and let us know,
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

9/26/2004 11:25

Hi our dear Miss V, well, if you have HIS permission, then there's nothing I can say, :-), nice to see you posting anyway, miss you around here,

Hi our dear Lisa,
You know our thoughts, love and prayers are with you today, on Aaron's 2nd Anniversary. Hm, a 2nd year Anniversary isn't much different from the 1st, the pain and longing are still so much there. In some way's it can be more painful, the reality of it has begun to set in.
I know you were having a special Remembrance today for Aaron at your Church, I pray that brought you some comfort, especially being around those who did know your precious Aaron. I hope you were able to remember some good memories, the special moments we all hold so dear to our hearts. My candle is lit my dear friend for Aaron and you, Chris, all who hold Aaron so close to their hearts. Love you our dear Lisa, I pray that you felt Aaron around you today, and please, don't be afraid to let go, if the tears come up let them out my dear one.
Lots of love, prayers & Angel Hugs,
