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.

Thank you so much for your encouraging words and thank you for thinking of me yesterday! Things are very tense here. I don't know if I'm just tired from being gone most of last week or what but I can't seem to get much accomplished. I've done some laundry but that's about it. All the meals I fixed to have here while I was gone are mostly still here and I had to throw some of them out; but it's his money so he can't really say anything to me about wasting money.
I looked up all the verses about waiting on the Lord and printed them out. I'm going to read them now and maybe go to sleep early. :o)
Thanks again.
Love and (((HUGS))),

Oh wow, big Congratulations Jane! I kinda thought it would lead to this, just a feeling, :) and I'm very happy for the both of you!!
Yes, forgive me all, I've been very busy with the Boards here that I moderate as well as personal things going on, my sister-in-law is still in the hospital, my own sister is having problems.
Yes, I heard from Jen, she's better, as a matter of fact tomorrow is her Birthday and its also Selva's special day for Sollange.
I don't know where everyone else is, I hope we hear from them to see how they're coping, doing! We care.
Much love & Hugs,

8/14/2007 20:31

Father God, in the name of Jesus Your Son, I come to You on behalf of my sister Selva. Tomorrow is her daughter Solange's homegoing date and I know that her heart is heavy and has been heavy for the past several days. Father, please lift the heaviness off of my sister and give her peace that passes all understanding. Give her the comfort that only You can give. Let her know how much she is loved by You and by all of us here at the prayer circle. Father, let her feel all our arms around her in this time so that she will not feel alone in her valley. And when she comes through the valley to the other side after this day is over, give her strength to face the days ahead with joy and peace. Amen.
Selva, we love you!

8/14/2007 20:37

Father God, I also come to You on behalf of my sister Verna as this month on the 16th and the 31st are her special dates for her daughter Diane. Father, in Jesus' name, I ask You to comfort her and give her reassurance that You are with her. Give her comfort and peace that only You can give and let her know that You are walking through the valley with her and that You will bring her through to the other side. She was just starting to feel some joy again and I ask You to bring that joy back to her doublefold, that You would show her of Your great mercy and love for her. And Father, give her rest for her body so that she will recover physically from these trying days too. Amen.
Love and (((HUGS))),

Dear Selva and Verna:

I just say Amen to both of Charlene's prayers. May you both feel the Presence of God during this very difficult time. Also know how much you are loved by God and this family. Love, Jane

8/15/2007 09:11

Hi my dear sister, I know these weeks leading up to today have been very hard on you, God love you. I pray you receive a feather today and that God's love, peace and comfort envelop you on Solange's Anniversary,
My love & prayers to you,

8/15/2007 09:38

Me too Jane - Lord knows it expresses my heartfelt wishes for our dear sister Selva today. I join Charlene and all our other dear sisters in prayer for our dear Selva throughout today and as Charlene said also in the days ahead. Charlene, you couldn't have posted a more heartfelt prayer for our sister, Selva, and also for me. God uses each of us to make known His love and concern for us during our valley times as well as during times of peace and even a measure of joy. Sometimes we make it here to express it and sometimes we just pray if something prevents us from getting to post it here. I already feel the results of all your prayers and I know that Selva does too.

Solange, stay close to your Mom today and send her a sign or two to let her know that you are with her in spirit today and that she is not alone. My love to you dear Solange and all the other angel kids and please give my Diane a hug from me; especially on tomorrow, her birthday!

To all angel moms, thanks for the love and prayers! I pray that God blesses each of you in whatever ways that you need blessing!!!
Much love, [[[hugs]]] and prayers,

8/16/2007 06:55

Ah, our dear Miss V, my love and prayers for you especially moreso today on your precious Diane's Birthday. I pray the good memories of Birthday pasts surface more than painful memories, but if they do, let them come, you know that by now anyway. Just think of the big Birthday party the Angel kids are having for Diane today, :)
Lots of love & {{Hugs}}

8/16/2007 10:33

Selva, thoughts are with you.
Happy Birthday Diane. Chris

8/16/2007 10:38

Dear Selva and Verna,

I wanted to let you both know that I am praying for you on these special days. I am having somewhat of a difficult time myself but I need you to know that you are most definately thought of.

8/16/2007 12:41

Jesus says: "COME UNTO ME, all you that labour and are HEAVY LADEN, and I will give you rest."
Father God I ask You to draw my sisters to You today so they can find rest from their heavy hearts. You have said that You give the oil of joy for mourning and I ask that You give each of my sisters the joy that only You can give and the peace that only You can give.
"If we seek Him, we will find Him if we seek Him with all our hearts."
Love and (((HUGS))) to you all,

8/16/2007 15:27

To All my dear sisters. Thank you all so much for your much needed prayers. I am a firm believer that prayers work, I have been in the Valley for many days now, yesterday I went to church and stayed a while after Mass, I felt a lot better when I left Thank God and your prayers. I know Solange is in Heaven with all of our dear Angel kids, but I miss her so much. My dear Sandy, Solange gave me one of her feathers as soon as I got up yesterday morning, also the evening before, she made sure that I know that she is close to me and very happy in Heaven. My love and prayers are always with all of you. Selva

8/16/2007 15:34

My dear Ms. V. I am sure that Solange gave a big hug to Diane from her Momma, I asked her to. I am also sure that they are celebrating her birthday today. I know that doesn't relieve the pain that you are feeling today, but I pray that you also receive a sign from Diane today, may you hear her sing one of her beautiful songs , may God fill your heart with Peace. MY love and prayers are always with you. Selva

8/17/2007 00:29

Dear Selva,

I'm so glad that you found some relief yesterday. Prayers are always answered.

Dear Verna,

You have been very much in my prayers this week. I know it doesn't matter how long ago our loss was, the special days still bring pain. I know this year has been especially painful for you. Keep hanging on to Jesus, He's walking right beside you in the valley.

Love to both, Jane

A young adult girl in my church wrote this after her grandmother passed away and I thought it was so appropriate for us.

Tears bring some relief
Your memory brings joy
Heaven gives hope
But my heart knows it’s loss
We are separated for the time being
And it is you who goes on living
So I will not say ‘I wish you were here’
I say instead
‘I wish I were there.’

Love and (((HUGS))) to you all,

8/18/2007 13:39

Dear Charlene,

Thank you so much for that poem. It is especially meaningful for me because it was written for a grandmother. I pray that things are calming a little in your household.

I am now wearing a ring on my left finger! Right now it seems as if 10 months is a very long time, however; I know when we look back we'll wonder where all the time went. Such is life. Love and gratitude to all, Jane

8/20/2007 11:07

Sorry I didn't say this when you first announced it, but I think I was waiting to make sure it was real. How silly is that???? I'm sure to you it was and is very real. I'm happy for you and pray that your lives together will be focused on Christ and will be a reflection of His Church to others around you. Tell Mike congratulations too--he's getting a wonderful companion. :o)
I'm living in a semi-peaceful household right now; I haven't had a negative or angry word spoken to me in 5 DAYS! HaHa. I don't know if it's God closing the lion's mouth (as with Daniel) or it's the calm before the storm. I'm still attending church as much as I can and it's given me a totally different outlook on life.

Much LOVE and PRAYERS and (((HUGS))) to ALL,

8/21/2007 00:41

Selva and Miss V, I'm sorry I did not post or email last week... you have both been on my mind and in my heart . . I know your angels are with you and I just pray you are having peaceful days. love you both!

Hi Everyone,

Thank you everyone who congratulated me. Yes, Charlene it is real, we see our pastor Sat night. I'm so happy things are calming down right now in your home. Going back to that church where you are loved was a great move.

As for me, I'm going back to work tomorrow after 6 days off. I'm not sure if it was a Lupus flareup or virus. In either case I was not feeling well, pretty achy and low temp. I now know that if I suspect a Lupus flareup, the first thing I have to do is increase my rest. Otherwise it will go into a major asthma attack which means a hospital stay. Except for Sunday, which was a very hectic day, that included leaving my car about a hour from my house, cuz it was overheating, I have been able to take a nap every day. Haven't done that in a long time.

It's been pretty quiet here lately. I pray that means everyone is busy and not down. Love and gratitude to all, Jane

8/23/2007 00:02

Hello my dear sisters, ~ Now that my PC is running better, it may take a while but I will try to get caught up with reading and responding to post. Please know that I am mighty grateful for all the prayers and happy birthday wishes for my Diane. I didn’t do anything special; just spent some quiet time and enjoyed the peaceful moments God sent my way. So again, thank you all for the heartfelt prayers. Y’all remember now … it may be Thanksgiving or Christmas before I get caught up responding to posts because of the rewrites I am supposed to be working on [ha-ha!] so when I respond to a post written some time ago, do not go: “What is Verna/Miss V. talking about?” Ha-ha! God bless you angel moms, and thank you all for the joy you add to my life; and knowing I will never walk alone!
Much love and prayers,
Verna/aka/miss V.
Oh gosh, Cin, ~ What a pleasant surprise to sign-in and see a post from you. Thanks for the kind words of support, compassion and prayers. You, Krissy, and the rest of your precious family will always be in my/our thoughts and prayers. Post or not, we know there’s a special bond that connects all of us angel moms/grand moms.
God’s peace and blessings, love & hugs,
Dear Charlene, ~ Thank you for that beautiful prayer and the wonderful job you do keeping us informed and faithfully reminding us of our special dates at the beginning of each month. Even if there are times we miss posting on someone’s SD, we know to say a special heartfelt prayer and ask both God, and their angel child/children to stay close to them. So on behalf of all angel moms/grand moms and our guardian angels, I sincerely thank you! You do all of our angel kids and us proud!
Love & Hugs from Heaven,
Y'all stay tuned! :)

Dear Charlene,

As always thank you for keeping our list current and posting it each month. I pray things are still going well for you at home. Love, Jane

8/27/2007 14:57

Oh, our dear Miss V, you don't have to go all the way back and get caught up - it would take you until Thanksgiving! No one here expects you to do that. Everyone know's what a faithful prayer warrior you are and how the Circle is never far from your thoughts (the people I mean) and love.
I just love seeing you post! And I'm very happy that your Computer woes have been straightened out for you!
Yes, that was super nice of Cin to post here for you and our dear Selva.
Much love & Angel Hugs,

8/27/2007 15:06

Yes, our dear Charlene, thanks for posting the special dates here as well, you're a real trouper!
