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.

My dear Anita, it is great to see you posting and knowing that you are just busy, thanks for your prayers and know that our love and prayers are also with you.
Dear Donna that Holiday Bill of rights its just fantastic and so true, I am also printing it, it just the way we all should celebrate the Holidays, in our own way, thanks for sharing it.
Connie of course we will pray for those two Angels and their parents, it is so sad, I hear about your kids loosing their lives almost on a daily basis here in Miami, it gets to the point that I just don't watch the news anymore.
Charlene yes I know exactly how you feel, but you do it your way my dear sister, you can not please everybody, and Holdays are so very rough on all of us, since Solange left I just don't celebrate Xmas or Thansgiving, my family and friends got used to it already so they don't expect me to go anywhere, I don't even go close to the stores, it is too depressing for me, Solange used to love this time of year and she will spend so much time in the stores trying to get special presents for everybody, it is just too sad now.
Kathy thank you so much for your e mails and prayers, I enjoy reading it , I admire your faith and at the sametime it helps with mine. My love and prayers are with you all. Selva

Dear Sandy,
I thought about you before closing my eyes last night and asked God to stay close to you and fill your heart with his amazing love and peace. I know where you are dear sister, we all do and we love you and all of us are praying for you. I agree, please pamper yourself and try to relax. We are going to get through these holidays together with each others prayers and help.

Give your burdens to the Lord. He will carry them. He will not permit the godly to slip or fall.
Psalm 55:22

Dear Connie,
What a tragedy, I am so sorry for these kids and their families, your Granddaughter too. I will add all to my prayers. It is so sad the amount of young people that have been taken, some by accident, some by crime, it just boggles the mind sometimes. I don't like to watch the news anymore either, it is so sad most of the time. Our only consolation is that we know that God has our children and they are perfectly safe and whole in Heaven. Amen. God bless,

11/2/2006 11:27

All of our yesterdays are preparation for today and tomorrow. Let God
prepare you for what only He knows is coming. Let pain bring clarity to
your life and vision.

Dear Selva,
You are so welcome. I love to read and be inspired, it helps me so much. How are you and Nancy? You are always in my prayers. I know that holidays are going to knock us all down at times but I pray that you get out some. I know it is sad but it can also be so healing. I will force myself because I know Wes would want me to continue on with what I am supposed to do here and try to do the best I can until we are together again. That includes enjoying family and friends and going places and most of all trying to smile and laugh. That is the hardest of all for me but I must do it. I can't live in darkness and Wes wouldn't want me to. My love and prayers are with you,

11/2/2006 21:48

Dear Connie,
When that accident happened it was considered "breaking news" on the 4:00 news. They didn't have details then, however I immediately thought of you. Really don't know why except the HS must have whispered in my ear to pray for you. I knew you weren't involved in the accident because the reporter stated young people were involved. This makes 5 in a week that I know of. When none of us could get on beliefnet I was going to post about the teenage boy who was killed in Fox River Grove by a train, exactly 11 years after 7 students were killed when a train hit their school bus. Please tell your granddaughter that my prayers are with her. It's so hard to see young people grieve. Thank you for all your e-mails. Love, Jane

11/2/2006 21:53

Dear Sandy,
I pray that your doctor visit will go well tomorrow. I pray the doctor will really hear what you're saying and offer some relief. I especially pray that you would feel your Loving Heavenly Father embracing you when you feel your lowest. Perhaps your deepening depression is a delayed response to just celebrating Thanksgiving? Take time now to be good to yourself. And remember you don't always have to be the strong one. So don't feel bad about not being able to post. We all love you and understand. Love, Jane

11/2/2006 22:01

PS to Sandy,
I just read Ps 123. It's all about looking to God until He sends His mercy. It gave me great hope BECAUSE MERCY IS COMING! It's only by God's mercy that we aren't depressed 24/7. Love, Jane

11/3/2006 18:41

Dear Angel Moms,
Wanted to wish you all a great weekend. You are all in my prayers. I don't have a computer at home (thank goodness, I'd be on it all the time!) so I don't get to check in.

SANDY-I am praying that the Dr. visit is productive and you will be back soon. Please know that I am praying very hard for you. We all are. I miss your posts! Take very good care and God bless you,

11/3/2006 18:52

Dear Lee Ann,
I didn't want to leave for the weekend without saying a prayer for you. This will mark 1 year since Ryan passed won't it? I am so sorry and I know that nothing anyone says will make it better at least that is how I felt when the 1 year anniversary of Wes's Heaven date came around. The best thing I can do for you is pray and you can count on that. Please try to take care of yourself, I have found that it is so important during our grief. Pray, eat right, take a walk or hot bath....these are my favorite peace instillers! Love to you sister and know that we are all here for you. God bless.

11/5/2006 05:55

Dear Lee Ann, ~ my heart goes out to you today on this your beloved Ryan's heavenly date. I've been praying all along but especially last night and today. I pray that God will wrap His loving arms around you and that you will feel your beloved Ryan's arms around you, too. I ask that God will give you peace and comfort you throughout this special day as only He can. May it help to know that all of us angel moms are praying for you and right there with you in spirit. We would never allow you to go through this alone. Even those who may have a difficult time getting posts submitted are praying for you today. I can assure you of this because we pray daily for each other. I pray that God will fill your heart and mind with many, many fond memories of the times you and your Ryan and family spent together. My faith in our Lord and Savior assures me that in God's time, you all will spend eternity with Ryan and other loved ones. Until then, I pray that God will continue blessing you and giving you and your beloved family the strength and will power to press on together ... in Jesus' name, Amen

11/5/2006 06:17

Dear Sandy, ~ I just wanted to let you know that you are in my heartfelt prayer also. We angel moms know how much you love and support us daily, but we also know that there are times when you need to take some much deserved time to take good care of yourself. I know you are modest, and love every minute of doing what God has given you to do here; but our heavenly Father knows you deserve a little break and expects you to listen when He whispers in your ear and tells you to take care of yourself. Remember, we know that you love us and that your prayers for us are ongoing; even when you can't post. We know this because we all have been in a situation when we desired to post daily and for whatever reason we couldn't. So, listen to your angel sisters and pamper yourself and allow us to for as long as needed. I pray that you feel the results of our heartfelt prayers and that our Lord and Savior will heal you and keep you in His loving care. :)
Our love and heartfelt prayers,
Verna [aka Miss V.] :)

Hello all my dear angel sisters, ~ Thanks to all who shared an easier way to get to our circle of love! :) The one that has worked for me the best is clicking on the Favorites icon and saving the last page. Then, when I sign on, I just click on Favorites, then the Beliefnet link I saved and I'm here! :)
Charlene thanks again for posting and sending the special dateís list for the month of November. I wish I had some of your organizational skills! :) You do God, your granddaughters, and all of us angel moms proud! Thank you for your efforts and a job well done!
Connie, when I read your post and Jane's about the loss of life of the teenagers, my heart went out to them and loved ones and friends left behind. We had a similar thing happen here, just a couple of weeks ago. Teenagers on their way to a football game had an accident and three teenage girls were killed. We will never understand why the young innocent ones are being taken from this world seemingly before they have had a chance to live. I suspect that old devil and his demons are very much on the prowl. We must continue to pray without ceasing that God will put an end to so much pain, suffering, and endless grief. Connie, I will especially pray for your granddaughter, asking God to help her heart heal. Connie, I believe it was you that posted about losing your post when you clicked on another page? An easier way for me is to copy/paste the post into Microsoft Works Word Processor and save it under the angel momís user name. Then, I do my post on that page; copy/paste it on the last page of the prayer circle. That way, I also get to use my spell checker thatís listed under Tools in MS Works. There may be an easier way, but I hope this helps. I find that by saving in MS Works first, I donít lose the post, even if something goes wrong when I try to copy paste. I can always go back to MS Works and try to copy/paste it later. I know from experience how frustrating it can be to do all that typing and then lose it all!
My dear sister, Selva, I pray that you and Nancy are doing OK. You know me oh so well. :) Like the character, Holt said in the movie, Driving Miss Daisy Ö "I'm doing the best I can." :) It's a rough journey; especially around the holidays, but with God's help, our prayers, and continuing to lean on Him for strength, we manage to get through them and keep pressing on, because we know our children and other loved ones gone on wants us to.
To all of my dear angel sisters, I need your email address if I donít have it, and also your snail mail address [in an email]. Iíd like to get started on my Christmas card list very early on. I would like to respond to more posts, but these old hands have started aching, so Iíll just say,"God bless, and Ö My prayers are with you all.
God's peace and powerful blessings always,

11/5/2006 07:24

PS: Donna, thanks so much for sharing the Holiday Bill of Rights! :) I, too, have made a copy!
Love Ya,
Jennifer, [and other angel moms], please check in when you can to let us know that you are OK!

11/5/2006 08:19

Hello dear Lee Ann, I too am praying for you today, on your precious Ryan's Heaven Date. The special days are hard, the Anniversary of their passing is harder still. Know that you're surrounded by the love, thoughts and prayers of this Circle of Love, to walk with you on this day. Let the tears out, as the memories of your Ryan come to mind, they're healing tears and I know how proud your Ryan is of you! Yes, may you feel his spirit around you today and may Our Lord's loving arms be wrapped around you,
Much love & Angel Hugs,

11/5/2006 08:28

My Dearest Angel Sisters

I want to thank all of you SO much for your prayers, inspirational pages, Psalms and your beautiful postigs to me, I've read them all and am so very touched and blessed by all of you. I can feel the fruits of them, so please don't stop. May God bless each and every one of you individualy for your loving outpouring! I hope soon to be back to my 'old self' and not MIA anymore.
From a very grateful heart,
Much love & Hugs to you all,

11/5/2006 16:36

Lee Ann, you are in my prayers today for a peaceful, memory-filled day of Ryan. May you and your grandsons have a restful day as well.
Much love and prayers,

11/5/2006 17:27

Dear Lee Ann. My heart and prayers go out to you today, all special days are very hard. May God wrap His arms around you today and remind you that your dear Ryan is very much alive in Heaven and very happy, just remember that Ryan just moved to another place, but he will be there waiting for you my dear sister, you will be with your son again and this time forever. My love and prayers. Selva

11/5/2006 21:55

Dear Lee Ann,
I just wanted to add my prayers to everyone elses. By now you pretty much made it through the day, I am praying for a peaceful night of sleep for you. I pray you will feel the presence of God's angels watching you as you sleep, and know that God is singing songs of deliverance over you. May you continue to feel His presence in the coming days. Know that you are loved and supported. Love, Jane

I have been MIA because my computer would not let me on beliefnet. I could go on any other site but not anything from beliefnet. I ended up shutting it down and starting over tonight and now I can get on. Don't know what that's about. Please know that I have been praying for all.

I have been to the dr and received a new med for my stomach. It seems to be working, however the side effects aren't pleasant. It has a drying effect. Since my body doesn't make enough moisture without the meds it's a double whammy for me. Sucking on hard candy and chewing candy helps. I actually had to have a dr's note to do this at work! Anyway things are improving healthwise so thank you for all your prayers. Love, Jane

11/6/2006 15:19

Dear Verna,
It is so good to hear from you. You asked us to e-mail our addresses, but I don't have your e-mail. It's not listed under your profile. I guess I could go back pages and pages to see if you listed it in a post, but time is limited. So would you please post it again? Love, Jane

11/8/2006 13:12

Dear Sisters,
How quiet it is these last few days. Just wanted you all to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Hope you all are doing well.
Love to all,

11/8/2006 14:24

Hi my dear sisters. Jane it is great to know that your health is improving Thank God, we will keep those prayers going my dear sister until you are just fine.
Dear kathy, yes it is quiet at the Circle, I hope it is a good sign and everybody is just busy. I didn't post yesterday because I was trying to follow election's results, I hope that you all voted, this is very important for us Cuban-americans, we consider it a privilege since in Cuba this is not possible, there is no freedom there and no election either, Castro has been in power for almost 50 years. My love and prayers are with you all. Selva

11/8/2006 23:55

Hi my dear sisters, :) Kathy, Selva, I, too, hope that all is well with everyone. With the elections, work for some, and thoughts of making it through the holidays, I think all of the above plus other responsibilities are affecting us all. But we know that with prayer and God on our side, and also making a conscious effort, together, we will survive. Jane, my email address that I check most often is: So far, I've only received one snail mail address, so maybe that's the reason why! Ha-ha! I know I sent my snail mail address to those I have email addresses for; so I will do the same when I receive your email and others that I don't have. I am trying to get started early so the cards will reach everyone before the New Year. Thanks for reminding me to post my email address. :) For my sisters who already have my email address, get those snail mail addresses to me ASAP. Good to know you are feeling better. It's always comforting to know that we are being prayed for 24/7. Selva, you are so right about the importance of exercising our right and privilege to vote. Hubby and I went very early and the turn out here was more than expected. How is Nancy doing? I pray that you both are doing OK. To our Chief Angel Mom, Sandy, and All Angel Sisters reading this ... please know you are in my thoughts, which places you in my heartfelt prayers.
Love and Angel Hugs,
PS: Jane, I've had problems getting here also. In my case it usually happens when the weather is bad, but sometimes I believe they are working to improve the site. Suggestion: Try saving this last page in a folder under Favorites. That way, all you will have to do is sign on, click on favorites, then the Beliefnet folder. Hope this helps! :)
