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 dear Charlene,
Ooohhh, yes, get Selva's Recipe for Cuban Style Pork Roast, yum, it smell's so good when it's cooking and is even better when you're eating it!
Seriously, it's the only way I cook a Pork Roast now, in the winter the smell waft's out in the Hallway and my neighbour's know what I'm cooking by now, :-).
Our kids don't get out of school until next week for the Summer Break, so I've got the whole Pool to myself during the day right now - once they're out of school, I'll be swimming in the Lake, plenty of room there! Did you get your shopping done at Walmart? Nice it's open 24 hrs., handy for shift workers and those who want an air conditioned place to browse around in. Hope you had a very nice day,
Love to you, dear one,

Oh, Margie, I really feel for you! I wish I could reach through here and give you a hug and hold you and cry with you. I understand your pain; it hurts to have your child hurting doesn't it? Father God, I lift Margie and her daughter up to You right now; Father, fill them up with Your love and compassion; give them peace, Father, that only You can give. Help them, Father, reach out to You now in their need. Father, fill them with Your peace and comfort; hold them in Your arms of love until their pain eases. Father, I thank You that You are almighty and powerful and can do anything that we ask in Jesus' name. I ask all of these things to be done for Margie and her family in Jesus' name. Amen.
Love you sis!
p.s. Just know that I'll keep praying for you and mentally holding you and crying with you.

6/20/2006 21:14

Hi dear Margie, happy you did drop in!
Although it sound's like you had a crummy day. You know, grief can come to us right out of left field, all it take's is something such as you experienced, a song on the radio, to bring it back and think of what may have been. Your heart hurt's for your daughter and for Casey, with the closeness they had with each other. These memories are bittersweet but oh so precious to hold onto.
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

A little 'Gift' for All


Love you all, Sandy

p.s. Turn your speakers up!

Hello all! I just wrote a major rambler and it was so long that I lost it when I tried to submit it. LOL! I'm not going to try to re-do it tonight; I couldn't remember it all anyway. :o) Just want you all to know that I'm thinking about you and praying for you.
Love you!

6/21/2006 08:56

Sandy, thank you dear sister for the song! I checked out the website and found some others that I saved. You are such a dear and caring sister; you searched all over for something to help us and you succeeded. Thank you! I kept listening to it last night until my hubby went to bed, then I turned the sound down some and listened some more. :o)
I hope and pray that you have a wonderful day!

I can't remember who's keeping in touch with Jennifer, but would you please tell her that in one of her back posts she gave a website for memorial candles. I've ordered 2 of them. Thank her very much for me for posting the address of that site! And tell her my prayers are still going up for her health and her husband's healing.

6/21/2006 22:46

Hello all my Angel Sisters. I know it's been a while since i've posted, but I have had a lot of things going on.I had an abnormal mammogram so I had to have a biopsy on that, but thank God there was no cancer. My dear Sandy thank you for the gift.And dear Sisters Charlene ,Selva and Verna I don't know what we would do without all of you. Welcome to the circle dear Margie you came to the right place. Love to all.---Anita

Hello my dear sisters, ~ my computer and I are at odds again.:( But, I thank God it has not crashed yet. Now that my Rues have me hooked up with AOL again via cable, they - [AOL] that is are making it difficult for me to access my MSN hotmail. It is NOT that I dont know what the heck I am doing Right Selva? Ha-ha! I am sure once they found out it was me again, they said, Oh No! Ha-ha! But, heck, I found out they were still charging my checking account, and the lady at the bank told me she could not stop taking the money out, and that I would have to cancel the account with AOL; which I did months ago! Anyway, Cheryl took care of it and they did apologize and credited my account. I called my daughter, Cheryl, earlier this evening, and she told me exactly how to access my hotmail. Whatever she told me worked then. However, that was then This is now! Ha-ha! Anyway, I think I will give up on finding my hotmail tonight and maybe work on getting rid of the 20 plus pages of 500 plus emails at AOL. I found out they own Road Runner; or at least that is what they told Cheryl when she was signing me up for a two month free trial. Anyway, Im grateful that I can still get online every now and then to let everyone know that I am doing ok thus far, and of course keeping you all in my prayers. I gotta catch up on reading back posts. Im just not strong enough yet to get here as often as I would like to, but I know you all understand. I look forward to seeing my cardiologist when he returns on the 26th of this month. Hopefully, and God willing, my exam will turn out ok. Again, my prayers are with you all and I thank you all for your prayers.

Y'all here is my old email address. You can use it until I find out how to access my hotmail again.

Gods peace and blessings,
Diane's Mom

6/22/2006 08:23

Good morning Anita, and welcome back to the circle of healing. SOOOO glad your tests showed no cancer! That must have been kind of scary for a while. Glad to hear from you, and am keeping you in my prayers for the coming month. Love you!

6/22/2006 08:41

Dear dear Miss V, good morning and glad to hear from you. Speaking of computer mess-ups, I just typed out a nice post to you and it just disappeared. Now, I'm trying to remember what I said so I can get it in here again. Sometimes I wonder if God didn't want me to say some of the things I've said so he zaps the words right out of here. LOL!
Glad you're resting and hope the doctor's appointment gives you a good report. I'm also glad that you have your daughter close so she can help you with things. I'm trying to hurry before I lose this post too; and I can't remember what all I said before. :o)
Love you,

6/22/2006 12:13

Hi dear Charlene, it's a nice song, isn't it, I sing along with the page it's on,:-) I don't know who sing's it, but he does a good job! I haven't had a chance to look around too much at her site yet, but I will.
How's your toe and your hubby's rib coming along?
Much love, prayers & Hugs to you,

6/22/2006 12:30

Hello our dear Anita! It's so nice to see a Post from you again, you've been missed too - but now we know why. Gosh yes, you must have been scared and stressed having an abnormal Mammogram come back, God love you! I'm SO happy for you though that the biopsy came back A-OK! You must have been elated to hear the news yourself!
Glad you like the song too, :-). Now please don't be a stranger, we care!
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

6/22/2006 12:35

Hi dear Miss V, I'm laughing here, thinking of you going to to AOL, :-) As our dear Selva would say, 'you're on a first name basis with them all', ha, ha.
Yes, we'll be praying for a good outcome from your Cardiologist and you take god care of yourself!
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Hi Sandy, My toe feels better; I've kept my foot up more lately and the swelling is down quite a bit. Now that I can bend my toes better, I think I broke the toe in two places. It is crooked at the first joint and again at the base of the toe where it joins my foot. I've tried taping the toe to the next one but that makes it ache so bad that I finally just left the tape off. I still can't put regular shoes on yet, but it hasn't been six weeks yet either. Thanks for asking. My husband keeps going, working in the fields by day and taking double pain pills at night. He still can't lay down in bed to sleep but has to sit up in his recliner all night. He must sleep pretty well, though, because I can hear him snoring all the way across the house from our bedroom. :o)
Bless you today dear sister!

6/22/2006 18:47

Don't feel bad I have 3 pairs of shoes I can get on and at the end of the day I can't wait to get them off. The humidity don't help but it is not too bad now

My youngest grandson was at his counciling session the other day and I get a call telling me he had to talk to me not his counsulor. I asked him what was wrong and he told me in a very sad voice that he missed his Dad so I told hin we would get baloons to write on and send them to him so that was ok but when I got off the phone I started to cry because I was thinking about my son. It does not take much for people to start crying because the have lost a child. Hang in there and things will start feeling better Bless you and I will pray for you

6/22/2006 19:03

Dear lask,
I keep thinking of this statement sent to me by a youth minister:

Every time I cry and miss _____________, my tears become a stronger testomony of my love to them; an embrace I can't physically give them.

If only our tears could reach out to them and bring them back to us. But just like putting flowers and momemtos at the cemetery, our tears tell others how much our loved ones mean/meant to us. I hope and pray that your grandson will be able to express his grief in appropriate ways. Bless you for being his grandma and helping him through this pain that's also your own. Love you!

6/22/2006 19:13

Hi ALL MY DEAR ANGEL SISTERS. I'm sorry I have not been able to posts in a few days but I have been very busy at work, but I want you all to know that I still make time for my prayers for all of you. My dear Charlene, please take care of the toes, put ice and hot, just try and see which one makes you feel better, I had so many broken stuff that I know by now, sometimes ice works and sometimes hot works. MARGIE, I am glad that you posted here again, yes my dear sister, that pain will never go away and any little thing will trigger it badly, we all understand, so you can count on our prayers, I think it is the only thing that works. Dear ANITA, so good to see your posting again, what a relief to know that there is no cancer, yes I can imagine what went through your mind when they told you about an abnormal mamogram, OMG my dear sister, Thank God, remember whenever you have a battle to fight, we are all here to fight it with you, and yes, God listens to our prayers, that I am sure off, otherwise I will have gone through suicide a long time ago, and thanks to all my dear sister's prayers, I am still here, hanging on, until God decides its my turn to be with my dear Solange. MS V. what great news, you are back on AOL, so now we can chat whenever I'll get you in line, and ha ha, now I can keep a close eye on you AGAIN, so you better be resting and following doctor's orders, you know I will tell on you, ha ha, and yes my dear sister, you will be just fine, just wait until you see your doctor, keep a close eye on the expression on his face, he will say Ms. V. I just can not believe it, you are just fine, keep the good work. My dear LASK, it must have been such a sad moment when you heard your grandson saying he miss his dad, OMG my dear sister, my heart goes out to you and your grandson, yes, the tears were there, but it is a good thing that he talked to you and told you about how he is feeling, the time will come when he will accept it, it is so very sad I am also crying, but with our prayers and your love, he will be OK, yes he will miss his dad, but God will help him to cope with it, you can count on my prayers for him and you my dear sister. My ANGEL IN CHIEF, no matter how busy I am somedays, I always have time to Thank God for you and this wonderful Circle of Love you have created. God Bless you always, and God Bless all of you. Love Selva

6/23/2006 23:33

Hello my dear sisters.I hope everyone is well.My dear Miss V. I agree with Selva about the Drs. face. Were all praying You will be fine. Charlene keep that foot propped up. I know how you feel but some things take a little time. (sometimes we have to make good use of it too.)Lask my heart goes out to you and I will be praying for you and your grandson.

My dear sisters I have a problem and I need some advice.Josh's birthday is coming up next month. Josh was a twin- how can I help his sister celebrate her birthday when her brother isn't here to celebrate his. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Love you all.....Anita

6/24/2006 07:57

Dear Anita, Glad to hear from you again and thanks for your advice about my foot. I can tell now that it's improving daily.
The thought I had about your daughter's birthday is this:
You might tell her that her brother is in another country (Heaven) so he can't make it home for her birthday. I believe he still knows that it is her birthday, though, so he has told everyone around him (wow, what a crowd!) about it. See if you can picture the celebration going on in Heaven for her because it's her birthday.

That brings joy to my heart; as I prayed, that thought came to me. I'd just never thought of it that way before. I hope it helps.
Keep keeping on dear sister!
Love and prayers, Charlene

6/24/2006 08:26

Father God, it is in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ that I come to you today on behalf of my sister Anita. Today, it has been 4 months since her son Josh went home to be with You. She is, of course, grieving the loss of her son and struggling about why it happened the way it did. Father, You know that Casey and Carey were both on the side of the impact just like Josh was. I don't understand either why things like this happen. There's just too much death and agony and pain in this world. Thank you, Father, that You have prepared a place for all who believe in Your Son Jesus and obey You. Father, I ask that You fill Anita with Your love and peace today; she's still in shock from Josh's passing. I ask that You comfort her with the comfort that only You can give. Father help us as her sisters to know how to help her; help us as we pray for and with her, to know the words to say and the right things to do for her. Bless her today, Father, with Your presence and Your love. Thank You, Father, for hearing our prayers and for loving us. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Love you sis!

6/24/2006 13:36

Our dear AngelMom Anita, only the 4th month mark, I know you're still in that valley with so much pain, questioning, experiencing it all over again with your dear Josh, God love you. His 1st Birthday coming up too, without him physically being here - all the 'firsts' are the hardest to get through, aren't they. My love, prayers and support are with you always and especially today, may Our dear Lord hold you in His most loving arms.
I think you should take a 'cue' from your daughter, Josh's twin, on how she feel's about her Birthday next month, she may feel like celebrating it or she may not. Perhap's she'd just like to have a quiet one with you and the family, rather than say, going out to Dinner. Definitely do what you've always done, for example, a Card, a Cake if you were the one in charge of doing that, as I said though, the best advice I can give you is to take your 'cue' from your daughter, how she feel's about celebrating their Birthday now, especially the first one.
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Hi all!
I would appreciate your prayers; my husband and I received word that a landlord (my husband farms his land) has passed away and we're flying about 800 miles for his funeral. He and his family used to live around here and he and his wife are both like second parents to us.
First of all, I don't like to fly (!) but that's the quickest way to get there. Second, the last time we were at their house was in 2004 and Carey and a grandson were with us. Then in 2002 we were there with Casey and a grandson. I've been crying off and on ever since I found out we'd be going for the funeral. Not only did we lose a friend, but we will also have to deal with memories of the girls when we go there.
The man's wife has been very helpful by providing a room and transportation for us; there are at least a dozen family members from our area that are going too, most of them have already driven there.
I ask for peace about the flying [I'm making sure to have plenty of 'relax' pills to take :o)] and also peace about the memories; I've already pictured the girls there and have been going over and over in my mind some of the things they/we did while we were there. Mainly, I don't want to be a burden on everyone by my grief over the girls; they will have enough grief of their own. The lady we'll be seeing knows what it's like to lose a child; both of her sons were adults when they passed away, one to a mining accident and one to cancer.
Okay, I'll quit rambling now. Thank you for your prayers.
