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.

lask, I can so relate to you on attending a funeral. That happened to me. 3 weeks after Casey Marie's accident and funeral there was another accident that took the life of the 8 year old daughter of a friend of mine. The little girl went to the same school as Casey and when I went to the funeral, it was held in the high school gym as was Casey's funeral. Talk about hard! I barely made it through the service. Sitting there in the same gym with some of the same people was just too much and only 3 weeks after we lost Casey and Carey.
I haven't posted in quite some time. I have been soooo busy. Been having some problems at home. I am engaged-have been for 5 years. I just can't seem to get him to commit. He has two children-a daughter that is 11 and a son who is 8 and they hate me. They are so awful to me. They go home and tell their mother that I beat on them and I'm mean to them. I've never laid a hand on them! Things have gotten really bad and I don't really know what to do. I'm at the point where I'm not sure that I want to spend the rest of my life with this man-he lets these kids walk all over me and then gets mad at me when I get on to them. He also gets mad at me when my daughters and I talk about Casey. We like to get pictures out and talk about them, we also talk about all the good times, etc. He tells me to get on with my life and is not understanding at all. So, I hold it all in and I know it's not good for me. I finally went up to the altar for prayer a few Sundays ago and that helped. But, the last week I haven't hardly slept or eaten. I know I need to slow down and take time for myself, but that's just so hard to do. Stress is the name of the game lately.
I'm rambling and I'm sorry. It's just so nice to be able to get on here and let it all out! I've really got to go now. I'm on my break at work.
Love all you ladies and I will continue to keep you all in my prayers.

Dearest Jane, Thank you for your insights that you posted. It helps me to read what others' thoughts are. I've wondered the same thing; if a baby not even born yet dies, what age will he be in heaven and what will he look like? We never got to see him/her to know what they look like; will they be the same in heaven? Just another thing we won't know until we get there and I think it won't matter then. Just knowing they are there will be enough and I think we will know them even though we haven't seen them here on earth. Blessings back to you Jane.

8/15/2006 15:29

I'm sorry Debby that I didn't have your info. to post on the circle for everyone. I've slacked off on reading the back posts and trying to organize everyone who has posted here. IF ANY OF YOU KNOW OF SOMEONE WHO WANTS THEIR DATES POSTED OR YOU WANT YOUR DATES POSTED, LET ME KNOW. Thank you.

8/15/2006 15:36

Hi Margie!
A voice in my mind keeps saying WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! when I read your post about the man you're engaged to. It has to be your decision, but I would think that you would want to be supported and not criticized when you are sad about Casey or overwhelmed by his children. I pray that God would lead you in wisdom to make the best choice for yourself and for your children. Enough said. :o)
Love you,

8/15/2006 15:53

I would not want to be with a man that lets his children be mean to you. I s he afraid that they won't want to come to see him if he disciplines them or is afraid of his ex wife? You need to sit down with him and tell him how you feel and if he don't want to then you should think about telling him to leave.You need some support not orders on what to do.

Hi my dear Deb! I'm so happy you posted, it's been TOO long and we miss you around here! Sadly there are a lot of new Angelmoms, but I'm so happy they found the Circle! And yep, Selva, Verna and I are still here, we're permanent fixtures by now, :-).
Imagine, the twins 2 yrs. old already, time sure does fly sometimes. And your Chris all grown up and in the Army now, that'll be so nice to see him at Thanksgiving, :-).
Aw, I'm so sorry to hear that about your Mom Deb, I know how close you and she were, you must miss her so much too, now you've got 2 special Angels in Heaven, your precious Michael and your Mom.
I'm glad you went over to your sister's on Michael's Anniversary, we all know it's still a difficult day to get through.
Aw, thank you sweetie, for thinking about us and keeping us in your prayers, we surely need all the help we can get and never forget that you're daily in mine.
Love ya my friend and give the twins a big hug and kiss from me,
Lots of love & {{Hugs}}

Happy Birthday Diane! I can just imagine the big Party in Heaven today, with all the Angel kids - singing, dancing, what a time!
Our dear Miss V, I know that time doesn't really mean very much to us when we come upon these special days, they can bring us right back to the moment, still so very clear in our mind's and hearts.
You've had one heck of a year, and I know your precious Diane was with you during those rocky periods.
I also know how proud she is of her dear Mom, with all the good you do with MADD.
My prayer for you today is that more joyful memories come forth than sad one's, and you feel that precious peace that God give's to us.
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs today, on your Diane's Birthday,

8/16/2006 08:47

Good morning my dear sisters. I just want to Thank You all from the bottom of my heart for your so much needed prayers, special days are so hard on us, we usually relive those awful memories, and thanks to prayers God pulls us through it one more time. God Bless you all. Selva

8/16/2006 08:49

My dear Ms. V. Another special date for you today, and of course my prayers and love are with you and family. My candle is also lit, I know that Solange and all our Angel kids are throwing a big birthday party for Diane, she will be singing among the Angels and I pray that you hear that song today. My love and prayers Selva

Oh my! Margie, I can RELATE to step children treating you so badly. Unfortunately, I was already married when my step daughter was coming to my house and disrespecting me. My husband and I fought EVERY time she came over about the fact that she was so awful to me and he ALLOWED it. OMG! When her mother (the ex-wife) found out I was pregnant, the crap really hit the fan! His ex would call and just SCREAM at him about the new baby that was on the way. My step daughter's mother would send her to my house with instructions to be mean to me! My husband and his ex had an 'agreement' that the step parents were not ALLOWED to discipline! It was always a weekend of complete misery for me. I finally told the little brat, after she cut her eyes at me with that go to hell look, that one day I was going to slap that look right off of her face because she was the child and I was the adult. She ran home and told her mother that I threatened to slap her and my husband's phone started blowing up! That was the last weekend she would stay with her daddy. Was about a month before she would come back, kept telling her daddy that she was afraid she might get slapped. His reasoning was that if he stayed on her all the time, that she wouldn't want to come and see him anymore. When she did start coming over, it was only for 'the day'. That was all about 5 years ago. As sad as it is, neither Alex (step daughter) or her mother were nice to me, until Marcus passed away. It's a shame that it took the death of a 10 week old for them to start treating me like a real person.
I agree with Charlene, I see a HUGE, WARNING! sign. If the children disrespect you and lie to their mother, and he doesn't support or defend you.....what's that old saying? You shouldn't waste your time with someone who doesn't have your best interests at heart. He sounds very insensitive. So I would have to question what he would do if something really important happened. Sometimes it's better to be alone, than to be with the wrong people. Our best friend should always be God.

I do agree with Jane about mourning for the future we didn't have. With Marcus being only 10 weeks, I still grieve because I never heard him call me 'mommy'. As with Selva, he was my only child, so I feel like there's so much I missed out on. Never hearing him call me 'mommy', well that always makes mother's day another tough day.

Well ladies, I think I've rambled enough for now, and somehow just talking about some of these things has me feeling a little blue.

Always in my prayers!
(((HUGS))) and butterfly kisses to all!

I just love this quote:

Be careful if you make a woman
cry, because God counts her tears.
The woman come of a man's rib.
Not from his feet to be walked on.
Not from his head to be superior, but
from his side to be equal. Under the arm
to be protected, and next to his heart to be LOVED.

A message from Heaven

Perhaps you are not ready
to have to say goodbye
Perhaps you've thought of things
you wish you's said....well so have I
for one thing I'd have told you not to
worry about me
I'm with the Lord in Heaven now
You knew thats were I'd be
Im sorry you are feeling sad
for I am so happy now
I've asked the Lord to heal your hurt
and comfort you somehow
It's hard at the beginning
but I know you'll make it through
I hope it helps to know
that I'll be waiting here for you.

God be with us all.

8/16/2006 11:50

Dear Miss V,
I pray today that our loving Father in Heaven would wrap His arms around you today and bless you abundantly more than you could ever imagine. I pray that He would give you good memories of birthdays past, and the knowledge that Diane fulfilled her 'mission' here on earth and is rejoicing today more than she ever could when she was here on earth. Father God, give my sister peace and joy today as she focuses on the good that You are bringing into her life because Diane was her child. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Love you,

8/16/2006 11:53

Dear Selva,
Praise God, He brought you THROUGH another special date! You are a blessing to us as well, and I'm glad that you are here in this circle of love and healing. I don't even want to imagine what life would be like without the sisters here! Love to you today!

8/16/2006 12:00

Thank you Donna for your advice to Margie. I have a 'mother's' advice but since you have 'been there' and know some of what she's going through, your advice is very well timed. I pray that she makes a wise choice and KICKS HIM OUT! LOL! (So much for just offering advice and not telling her what to do.) :o)
I love that quote about the woman coming from the man's side to be LOVED. You know what that means to me as well as yourself don't you. Thank you for that; we can always dream can't we. :o)
Love you Donna!

8/16/2006 13:16

Dear Kathy,
Thank you for the poem; it just about says it all doesn't it? We are the ones feeling sad and they are the ones who are happy. No more pain, no more sorrow, no more tears, no more problems, just HAPPY! And someday we'll be there with them and be happy too. Just another reason to look forward to Heaven!
Love to you,

8/16/2006 17:08

Yes Charlene, I can hardly wait to be free of the pain I feel. Some days it is just too much. I want to be rocked like a baby sometimes! I have a prayer to share that I read everyday, it is very comforting and helpful to me.
May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.
Mother Theresa

Love to you too Charlene

8/16/2006 17:17

Thank you for that prayer Kathy. I copied it and printed it out to put on my desk where I can see it every day. It helps me to remember that my focus is to be on Him and what He has done for me and not on myself.
Thank you.

8/16/2006 19:01

Hi my dear Deb. It is so good to read a posts from you. I'm sorry to hear about your Mom, and like our dear Angel in Chief said, now you have two beautiful Angels looking after you. OMG the twins are 2 years old, it seems like yesterday when you told us you were expecting twins, I remember the pictures you sent and they are so beautiful, you must have your hands full. Thanksgiving will be here so soon and then you will be able to hug Chris again. You are always in my prayers my dear sister, and remember Michael already have so many Angel friends, they will be always there waiting for us. Love and prayers Selva

8/16/2006 19:06

Hi my dear sister Donna. Great to see you posting, I too wil Storm Heaven for you, I am sure that with His help, you will be feeling better and soon will find a donor. It's a shame people don't learn more about Organ Donors, it is a very rough decition to make at the last minute, but all you have to do is register even at the driver's license bureau, then you don't leave that up to the family. I am registered. So keep the Faith my dear sister, you will find one soon. In the meantime please know that my prayers are always with you. Love Selva

8/16/2006 19:14

My dear sister Charlene. Thanks again for your prayers and your help on keeping the Fort, you have been a blessing for this Circle of Love. My love to you. Selva
