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 again everyone, Good to here from you Miss V. Got your email about Gods eye. Cant put into words right now what I felt when I saw that. It was very beautiful for one and it will make you stop and think.

I wanted to tell you all about these two web sites I found today while just pokeing around.I think you will find them as awsome as I did.
aaI think that once you go to this site you will see why I fell in love with it. Just to let you all know I will have me one of these babys and it will look just like my little Amiee. To understand what I am talking about you will have to see for yourself.
I thought of all Angel moms when I went into this site. When you see the candels this woman makes you will just have to have one. She makes candles in memory of beloved lost ones and anything else you can think of. I really liked the candles in memory of someone. Check it out for yourself and you will see what I mean.

Let me know what you think.
Love to you all,

Hi dear Jennifer, ~ I will certainly check out these sites out and let you know what I think. :) I'm just signing on to submit a prayer for the people of Pakistan. What a sad situation. My heart goes out to all. :(
Dear God in heaven, ~ I come to pray for the people of Pakistan in the wake of this killer earthquake. Father, I ask that you send your earth angels from all corners of the world to give aid and comfort to the survivors. Please have mercy on the souls of those who did not survive. Lord, please have mercy of those who are still trapped in the rubble. Hold our sisters and brothers in your mighty arms of mercy. Comfort those who have lost loved ones. Please provide some form of food, shelter and medical help for your beloved children. Help those who are going in to provide help in any way that they can. Lord, please place it on the hearts of people all over the world to desire and work for a peaceful coexistence among all nations. Father, please help all mankind to appreciate and take better care of our earthly home you have given to all so freely. Father, give us the wisdom to love one another as you have instructed us to do in your holy word. Thank you, Father God, for hearing my heartfelt prayer. To God be the glory. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen

Beautiful post/prayer Miss V, another tragedy of insurmountable proportions - over 30,000 people dead! I just watched them pull a child from beneath the rubble, Praise God! So much heartache and sadness, but I know as Relief and Aid workers, Organizations rush to their sides that God's love will be made manifest.
And then it was reported that a mudslide in Guatemala buried a complete vilage. Father, in your great love and mercy may our brothers and sisters all be in your most loving arms, I ask this through Your Son, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever, Amen.

Hello everyone, Yes it is most heart breaking as to what these poor people are living through. May God bless them and be with and cradle them in his loving arms.

I came here to post a poem I found on line last night.As we all are aware when our child dies it changes us forever. We will never be the person we once were. I KNOW every single one of us can relate to this poem. We have all been there and that is why I must post this for all to read.

Grief is a tidal wave that over takes us,
smashes down upon you with unimaginable force,
sweeps you up into it's darkness,
where you tumble and crash against unidentifiable surfaces,
only to be thrown out on a unknown beach,bruised, reshaped...
Grief will make a new person out of you,
if it doesn't kill you in the making.

Hello my dear sweat sisters in chirst, hope everyone is doing fine and has had a wounderful day. I just wanted to touch bases with all of you and let you know you are always in my prayers and in my heart.

Tommorow is the day I take Elizabeth to the hospital for all her test. Pray with me that all will come out well. The EEG is routine but this is the first MRI she has ever had. She also has to have some blood work done to check the levels of the new meds that she is on.The hospital that I have to take her to had a shooting there today. A woman that worked there left her husband and he had told her if she did he would kill her so Today he went in the hospital and shot her. Thats a little scary for me. I am so glad that we were not there today.Pray that all is well tommorow. Also pray for the lady that was shot, she is in ICU. I didnt get to watch our local news so I dont know how she is doing now.
Love and Butterfly Hugs,

Hi my dear sister, nice to see you posting too, I know you're very busy at work but you still take the time to post here!
I pray you've heard from your friends by now, what a worry, maybe they just can't use their Computer right now - think positive.
That works both ways, who encourages us when we're down - you do! You're an inspiration and a big blessing too and love you lots,
Prayers & Angel Hugs too,

Hello dear Monica, thank you for your prayers for us all, that's very kind of you!
That's so sad and heartbreaking to read, your precious little John suffering from depression, God love him, I pray that God direct's you to the right Dr. who can alleviate his symptoms and return him back to the happy little boy he has a right to be.
It has to be heartbreaking for you, his Mom, to see him at such a young age suffering from depression, but know you're in our love and prayers and please let us know how he's doing,
Love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Praise the Lord. My Husband found a job he will be driving delivering pizza for Dominos, he will start this afternoon at 3PM.He did work at a gas station and they sold it on him. He had worked there for Eight years.I like this better he won`t be on his feet 24/7. I will be home alone but I will be ok just me and Jesus. Praise His Name we are going to be ok now. I realize my hurt will be with me for a long time foreverbut God will take care of us.
Acts 1:8, Ye shall recieve power. God Bless You All and take care, for He Cares. I just wish I knew why. Oh God take care of us Why oh Why did you take our Daughter from us ?

Speaking with your angels is easier than you may think. Your angels want to connect with you even more than you want to connect with them.

Good Morning Angel Moms/Dads! :) I saw the short message above on one of the many pages I receive from Beliefnet daily and thought I'd share it just in case you might have missed it. It warmed my heart and confirmed my own belief. Our beloved guardian angels try to connect with us all the time. We learn gradually to recognize, and be cognitive of the many signs our angels send to us on a daily basis; especially when we are missing them so. Find this hard to believe? Think about it; We can't see the wind on a windy day ... But we can see and feel signs of it's presence. Have you seen or felt signs from your angel that you may not have recognized? Have you talked with your angel today or maybe in the past? :) God bless you dear angel moms/dads! And, borrowing the words from angel mom, Cindy's email tag, ... "May you be in the company of [your] angels today!" :)

Love & Angel Hugs,
Verna [aka Miss V.] :)

Morning Sisters in Christ I am here asking for prayer again it seems our landlord has become very impatient even tho we have been here over 5 years he gave us a pay up or die notice we have to have rent to him in three days or move out. We owe $365 for this months rent. It seems the devil is really out to get us.Our son in law won`t let us stay there cause we both take pain pills as if we would give my randaughter one, come on get real, but yet when he was drinking & drugging we let them stay with us. Oh well God will provide.I don`t know when he gets paid. Good grief it`s 2 AM I better go to bed. God Bless everyone.
Lots a Love Phyllis

Dear Phyllis, ~ I had every intention of getting this post submitted yesterday, but had the grand kids over night and didn't get it finished before going to bed. Anyway, I am glad to hear that your husband has found a job. :) But sad to read this morning about satan's latest attack. I think it is so very sad with all you are going through.
I pray that things will turn out OK.

Oh, that is so sad about the gas station selling out -- but as you said, the good news is that he won't be on his feet 24/7. I'll bet he likes it better, too, praise the Lord. :(

I imagine that being home alone will take some getting use to; but as you so wisely said, you will be OK just you and Jesus. And, also, his landing that job will help give you a measure of peace and well being; especially with all that you are going through.

You are also right when you say that your hurt will be with you for the long haul. Unfortunately, It never goes completely away. :( And, the pain and grief is so raw and intense in the beginning stages. I remember feeling as though it would never get to a stage where it wouldn't hurt constantly. It did get easier in time but it didn't happen over night. It took a long time to make it to the point where I realized I was no longer a victim but a survivor. As time passed slowly by, however, I realized that I would never be the person I use to be. I had hoped I would eventually be able to put it behind me and only think about my loss on special days. It never happened. I still have that quiet ache in my heart off and on daily, but I consider it a blessing compared to how it was in the beginning days, months, years. But, as you said in your post above, God will take care of you all and He does care. I am a witness that He will. :)

Still, ... My heart goes out to you because I can relate all too well with the indescribable grief and pain that you are experiencing right now over the loss of your beloved daughter. There really are no words to describe it. How I wish there was something I could do to take it all away. I know Sandy and the other angel moms wish the same for you as well as all bereaved parents who reads your post. I, too, asked God why, and so have many, many other angel moms and angel dads. It's the worst pain we will ever know and feel. I will continue praying that God will, answer our prayers and ease you pain, and give you the strength to press on, one minute, one hour, one day at a time!

Love and Angel Hugs,

Verna [aka Miss V.]

Hi Everyone! :) ~ Just checking in to let everyone know that I am doing OK, and still praying for those precious moments of peace for everyone. I'm still having a few problems getting use to my new ISP, but hope to have it all worked out soon. Earlier today, for example, I was unable to open any of my email. It may have been caused by me having a lot of junk emails or being over the limit. Anyway, all seems well now.

I am asking that you continue to pray for my niece, Pat, whom we think just needs to take a break from her stress filled job. She is out of the hospital, and seems to be feeling better, thank God.

I am also asking that you send up an extra prayer for me. I have not been feeling well lately. My doctor has me on bed rest for a few days due to a flair up of bronchitis. I am taking De-congestine TR, which is generic for Deconamine SR; and she also prescribed Amoxicillin; 500 mg, [which I just started taking yesterday] to get rid of an ear infection. Hopefully, once that's cleared up, I will begin to feel a lot better. I will try to get back later tonight to check on everyone.

Take care, all, and know that you can always count on my heartfelt prayers.

Love & Angel Hugs,
Verna [aka Miss V.]

10/20/2005 15:27

Hi dear Miss V and All,
You're so thoughtful and mindful of those who are still in that raw state of grief, loved reading your Posts.
Oh no, not Bronchitis again, that's what I was so sick from and I know how it knock's you for a loop! Please take your med.'s, get that bed rest, be good to yourself and take care, you deserve it!
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

10/20/2005 20:48

My beautiful son, I miss him so. I pray that God will allow a never ending presence of our spirit children and other loved ones as to have some comfort and peace until we meet again. Please help us tolerate the pain by becoming closer to their spirit.
