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.

Miss V: AMEN!!!!!!!PRAISE GOD YOU'RE BACK! What a compliment coming from such a LADY of GOD! I missed you and your strength, but I did PRAY for you and yours. You sure have lots of love around you. I'm so honored that I could be part of your prayer life. You and Sandy have became inpriritions for me. There is such a unity of love from Heaven to Earth, and God knows we need it. Now, I ask that you pray for my 19 year old nephew that has just been diagnosed with MS. He will need strength to make it and truly find the real Doctor for him is God before it's too late. MY NEXT EXTRA SPECIAL PRAYER IS HEAVEN BOUND BY MANY ALREADY< BUT THE GREATNESS OF THIS MAN WILL USE ALL OUR HELP> It's my Pastor-Tom Teall who has been diagnosed with a form of cancer. I ask that you help me and our Church Family, to pray that the cancer was caught in time. Pastor Tom has been the pathway to my finding the Grace & Glory of God and the forgiveness of my sins because of His only SON,Jesus. I have had talks with Pastor Tom and his positive and wonderous ways are definately through Christ. I ask that you help me with prayers for all our circle, and extra special PS's for Pastor Tom. Thak you, Love & Prayers.......suangels2

Oh Wow, What a wonderful suprise to see you posting MISS V. It is wonderful to see you hear again and know that GOD is takeing care of you.What a wonderful, mercieful God he is.

Lord, I come to you this morning prasieing your holy name for bringing MISS V back to us and to her family. Lord, we give all the glory to you. Amen

Sorry it's taken awhile for me to post again. The kids are keeping me busy, my 13 year old daughter is starting to try testing her waters with me. My fibromyalgia has really been giving me a fit and working on weekends 12 hours is takeing a toll on me.Yesterday I could'nt even get out of the bed. Praise God I am feeling much better today.

Sandy and Selva, Hope all is well with the two of you. Sandy I did'nt know that beliefnet hada board and that you were a moderater. Heck, I just found out that these kinds of boards existed. You will have to email me and tell me where in this site it is and what to click on to get there.

Love you all,

YES indeed, what a joy to see a post from our dear Miss V!! Can you tell you've been sorely missed and we need you back here? :-) NOT before you fully get your strength back though!
Thank You Lord, for answering all prayers said for our dear Miss V, all the praise and glory goes to You! God is good, all the time, all the time, God is good! You might start working on that big Rambler you owe us Miss V, ha, ha, when you're feeling rested.
Lots of love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Hi dear suangels, oh, that's sad about your nephew, I pray he doesn't have a full blown type of MS and you know without a doubt we'll keep him in our prayers! As well as your dear Pastor, may the Divine Physician heal him completely of his cancer so he can continue to work for God, and of course for his family as well.
You know, suangels, I've noticed a little difference in your posting and the difference is HOPE :-). You sound a little more hopeful now and that's wonderful! Oh, I'm not saying it's going to always be smooth-sailing for you or anyone else here, we'll always have our valley days to deal with, but hope is a special grace from God and it seem's to me at least, that you've embraced it! We are so blessed and fortunate that you found this Circle, your own love come's shining through brightly - I call it SONshine and you're a great lady of faith yourself!
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Just click on Discussion and you'll see all the Boards that Beliefnet has - look around, there'z bound to be some that interest you!
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Sandy:I've really been trying to make changes in my life and by the Grace of God and all my Circle Support, I feel kinda like some of the load has been lifted off me. I know my faith has taken a turn for the better and hopefully my attitude. I know I do feel more inner peace than I have in years. It takes lots of learning from many teachers to learn what we need to exist on this earth. Being able to talk about things in my life , and all of yours, has given me HOPE. I feel a strong unity with Miss V and you that has gone above and beyond anything I've ever felt before. I've gone to groups, shrinks, doctors and taken so many different meds, yet here I finally feel my heart again. I know each and everyone of us understand each other and not only pick us up when we're down, kick butt if we need it, thank us when we need it, but are totally commited to be here for each other. I thank each and every individual who has input to share..... I also want to thank you for prayers for Micah and Pastor Tom. Pastor Tom has also been such a positive influence on me and God knows how much help I need, so I pray He'll answer Prayers for him. I know God isn't finished with him here on EARTH, but it's still scarey for me. I really need his teachings of the Bible in words I can finally understand . The Bible was always a little complicated and over my head, but Pastor Tom has brought it to me so I see it and hear it, but also learn it. MISS V> so happy to see your posts. God knew we all need you to. Like I said, you both have been the BIG ONES, along withlmbooberrossie, I feel again!!!!!!! Thank you and bless you all. Love& Prayers....suangels2 P.S. I ran into my old hall partner on 1st shift and she told me I look great and like all the stress is out of my face. since I've gone to 3rd. I do get signs that I'm on the right track!!!!!!! suangels2

3/1/2006 19:10

Hi my dear SueAngel. I am so sorry about your nephew, of course he will have our prayers, I pray that the MS will be finally cured, I also have a friend's daughter that has MS, but there are a lot of improvement on that my dear sister, and our prayers works most of the time, so you can count on it and also for Pastor Tom, God will have mercy on him, specially such a good man, but remember, we have to complete our mission here, whatever we chose before arriving here, and I will pray that Pastor Tom will complete his mission here and that he will not suffer.Please count on my (our) prayers. Love Selva

3/1/2006 19:14

Hi my dear Jenn. You are due for a lot of patience, understanding and love for your thirteen (remember teens?) year old, we just forget that we went through the same growing pains, just remember it and you will not have problems, we all have to go through it, ha ha, it is just age and "experience" that makes us forget. Love you my sister. Selva

3/1/2006 19:17

My dear sisters, I just want to share with you that Ms. V. went to her doctor today and her EKG was just fine, she is feeling better and doing well, of course she still needs our prayers, she went through a major surgery and that gives you side effects like feeling a little bit of depression due to the anesthesia and all, so lets keep storming Heaven for our dear Ms. V. so she can get stronger and have her health back again so we can enjoy her rambles and love again. Love Selva

Dear Lord, I come to you in the name of Jesus, Thanking you for all the Angel Moms here at this site. I know you are a God of Mercy and Grace and I ask you to now extend your Anointing, Your burden removing, Yoke destroying, Power to each and everyone. Lord, I know you to be a God of Blessings, Empowerment and Unmerited Favor. Extend Your Loving Kindness and Your Tender Mercy to each situation and each life represented here. My desire is that you touch each one with you "Peace", Dear Lord. And I ask these things, in the name of your son, Jesus. Amen

Thank You all for your prayers and continued support of my mother Miss "V" ! I have felt the Love that all of you have extended. I am sure you all understand that my posts may be a little distant right now, because I realy have my hands full. But I just had to take a moment tonight, when I got home from work to say a prayer for all who supported me when I needed you "All" the most!
May God Richly Bless Each of You,

3/3/2006 21:44

Selva: Thank you for the encourangement on the MS. I know they have came a lot farther with cures, so hopefully God will help with Micah. Also thank you for the prayers for Pastor Tom. I know he has many going up, but in this case, the more the louder. I to feel his job isn't done and the coming together the power of prayer will be heard and we're all going to be closer and better for it. This weekend his son(who is our youth minister) will be preaching in his place, so send a litlle encouragement prayer for him also. Thank you also for all you have done for me on this prayer circle journey. I add you to my list of teaching ladies here. Love & Prayers suangels2

3/4/2006 20:52

We love you our dear Ms. V. and Cheryl, we understand what you are going through, so just relax, we are praying for you too, thank you for posting when we know that you are keeping a very busy schedule. Love Selva

3/4/2006 20:58

Hi my dear Suangels, every day that goes by I am more convinced that prayers works, please count on me (us) to pray for Micah and also for Pastor Tom and today I will pray specially for his son, God bless him, he will be just great, God will guide him, and together we will all pray and it will make a diference, and if its God's will to take Pastor Tom then we will understand that his mission here its over, but if it is not, then he will come back to guide all of you my dear friend, in the meantime, you can count on my prayers. Love Selva

3/5/2006 12:27

Hi: I feel like I almost know some of you even though I just found this site yesterday. My heart goes out to all of you who have "lost" a child. I use that word (lost) loosely because I've heard it described twice since my granddaughters' funeral in 2004 in this way: 'they're not lost if you know where they are'. That helps, doesn't it, but it still hurts to know that they're not here with us. I've got a long story that I'll tell later, but I just wanted you to know that I skimmed the site yesterday and several comments really helped me to feel "normal" in what I'm experiencing. I've never "lost" a child of my own but I've "lost" 4 grandchildren; the first was given up for adoption in 1989 (a long story), the second was stillborn in 1989, and two were killed in a car wreck in 2004. It hurts!! That's all I can say right now because I think I'm just now allowing myself to grieve for all of them. Praying for you all as you pray for me. Charlene

3/7/2006 11:47

Charlene: Welcome to our circle. You will find love and understanding that you have felt nowhere like here. You will find that your heart and mind will be able to finally open up and be heard, yet also find some answers to continue . Each one of us have "lost" a child, but have discovered they're not lost, just taken to a beautiful place that we may join them later. True, we were'nt prepared for the death of our children, but here we can at least find solance in knowing we're not alone and there are those who understand. You'll have many emotional roller coasters to go through, but if you talk of your feelings, there is at least one of us who has felt the same, and can help you through it. We are all at this Circle through the Grace of God. He knows taht alone we can't endure, but with the prayer unity we have, we can. You will find peace here because love and prayers do work. Love & Prayers Suangels2

3/7/2006 11:57

Hi Everyone-esp. Selva: Pastor Landon had a wonderful message with heartfelt words of his weekly study time with Dad(Pastor Tom). It was a very emotional ministry that showed "like Father Like Son" but with his own little twist. It once again showed me the love God had for us by giving Jesus for our sins. It made me realize I need to give God through Jesus more quality time. I pray everyday for all of us, thank Him for all He has done, yet I think I need more quality time. Pastor Landon made me realize that. I also have learned much from this circle to. I again say "THANK YOU TO EACH AND EVERY ONE WHO HAS GIVEN ME STRENGTH TO FACE EACH NEW DAY!!!!!!!!!" love & prayers suangels2

3/7/2006 12:57

Thank you, Suangels2, for your encouragement! I read the other day on the site that the second year is the hardest; I can believe that! I was in shock the first three months after our girls' wreck (Wed.,Dec.1,2004) and then the grieving began; of course March was the 10 yr.old's birthday and that didn't help! My husband can't get through a Wednesday without breaking down and the first of each month is an "anniversary" for him. I don't even think about Wednesdays or the first of each month; but I do have a hard time on birthdays and holidays because our family is close and we always celebrate the holidays together, and of course Dec.1 is very hard. I do feel like this is a turning point in my life; I feel like I'm ready to make some changes that I wouldn't have made otherwise. I just pray that I don't get ahead of God, but that I let him lead me where He wants me to go. He is still God and in control and He is worthy of our praise!

3/7/2006 13:44

Welcome Charlene, to our circle of LOVE! I think you are right when you say you use the term "lost" loosely. We all know that our children are angels, and have gone home to be with God, we all know where they are.
I turn personally attest that when my sweet Angel (Marcus) got his wings at the tender age of 10 weeks, I was ANGRY with God. It has been 4 years since that day, and I have just recently begun to start listening to Him again. I fell prey to Satan and all of his trickery. I almost let it tear my marriage apart, was unable to hold down a job, just pure unadulterated ANGER! But now, thanks to everyone in the prayer circle, my heart is open to listen when the Lord talks to me now. My life is turning around, it's the first time I have felt any PEACE since Marcus went to be with God. I did not grieve properly when I should have either. My son's memorial is found under Dickens, Marcus, if you are interested. (or if anyone else is) The photo was taken 2 days before he got his wings.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know, this is a very SAFE, LOVING, UNJUDGEMENTAL, place to come and let out all of your feelings, whether it's anger, sadness, grief, whatever. You have found a wonderful place.
A special THANK YOU to our Heavenly Father for taking care of Miss V. She has been one of the sources of my strength since I found the circle.
Love all the emails Sandy, Phyllis, Selva and Miss V.!!!!!

3/7/2006 14:16

Thank you, Donna; I'm just now feeling the anger that the girls are gone. I've had problems praying for myself, let alone anyone else. I'm having trouble even reading my Bible. We still go to church (a praise is that my husband just started going to church with me after the girls' went to heaven!), but I feel almost disconnected with God. We used to be so close and I know He is still with me but I almost can't respond to Him like I should. I don't know if this makes sense and I can't really explain how I feel. I just know that I hurt more now than I ever have and some days all I can do is cry. If I didn't have other responsibilities, I think I would take off on vacation and spend time alone with God and cry all I wanted to without being interrupted or worrying about what anyone else would think. But that's not possible and I just try to make the best of things as they are. Thank you for listening; some of these things I've never told anyone else because sometimes there's just no one to listen. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

3/7/2006 19:13

Hi Charlene. Welcome to out Circle of Love. I am so sorry we have to meet this way but i also Thank God that you found this Circle. I am so sorry about your grandchildren. I don't have granchildren but I hear that you love them as much as your own kids, that is a terrible loss my sister, I lost my only child Solange at the age of 20, due to a car accident, Aug 15, 2002, so I (we all) know about the horrible pain that we are feeling and dealing with. Just know that in this Circle of Love , you will find so much understanding, love, prayers and never judgement. You can vent your feelings here, you can let it all out, and we will be there for you, and our prayers will be there for you also. I am still alive today, thanks to this Angel sisters that you will also find here, thanks to their prayers, love and understanding I am able to go on. This is true love my dear sister, we don't ever know each other in person, but we care so much for one another that we consider ourselves sisters, and we really are, So once again please feel free to join our Circle of Love and post everytime you need to or want to, we are all here to listen, understand and pray for one another. Love Selva

3/7/2006 19:20

Hi my dear sister Donna. So good to hear from you again in our circle, I have been wondering how you are doing, hope everything is going well (as well as we can do). Thanks for your prayers my dear sister, I know they come from your heart. Remeber that all our dear Angel kids are taking care of little Marcus, he is in good hands, enjoying been spoiled by all the older Angel kids and Jesus of course, he is happy and spoiled, I am sure that Solange along with all of our dear Angel kids are spoiling him like crazy, and they will be there until our time will come to be reunited with them again, and this time my dear sister, we will all wait for one another and then we will have the biggest party that Heaven can hold, that is a promised. My prayers are with you. Love Selva

3/7/2006 19:27

Hi my dear sister Sueangels. That is good news about Pastor Landon, yes I am sure he has his own style but the same wisdom as his dad Pastor Tom, still praying for him, also, let me tell you what I think, you are giving a lot of quality time, just read your posts here my dear sister, here, where it is needed also, where we have so many moms and dads going through the most horrible pain anyone can endure, and you are giving hope, love , prayers and listening, and that my dear sister, as far as I am concerned IT IS QUALITY TIME,thank you my dear sister, for being there for all of us. Love Selva

3/7/2006 20:41

Thank you all so much for understanding; now I have someone to talk to who doesn't expect me to 'get on with my life'. I know losing a grandchild isn't the same as losing a child but it still hurts deeply and I wouldn't wish this on anyone. The two girls were here with their mom (our daughter) and two other siblings at least 2 or 3 times a week so we were very close. All five of them were in the wreck and we're very thankful that 3 survived; but we sure miss the 2! Our daughter is still recuperating from a brain injury, some damage to the right side of her face, but the other two are fine. Can I tell you some about our two girls? What grandmother cannot brag about her grandchildren? Carey was 10 at the time of the wreck, very athletic (basketball and softball), and a HUGE Elvis fan; we took her to Graceland in August 2004 and then she was taken home to heaven in Dec.2004. We're so glad we did that for her and we now have such good memories of that time with her. She also loved horses but was never able to have one of her own; I can see her now finally getting her own horse and riding him in heaven with her long hair streaming behind her. Casey was 12 (& 3/4--she wouldn't let us forget that) when she went home to heaven. She was shy but very sweet and loved babies and putting on plays for the family when we all got together. (I can see her 'mothering' all the babies in heaven; she would love Marcus, Donna.) She had made cheerleader in the 7th grade and was a very happy girl; she also played the flute and had played several solos at church already. Even though we have 10 other grandchildren now, we still miss the girls terribly; their leaving made a very big hole in our family.
God bless all of you,
Baby boy--2-25-89 (adopted 3-89)
Michael--3-26-89 (stillborn)
Casey Marie--1-7-92 to 12-1-04
Carey Grace--3-18-94 to 12-1-04
