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.

As WE know sometimes the days before and after are harder than the day itself. That seems to be so this year. Less than a week to go its hard.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PRAYER AND THOUGHTS. THE POEMS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL AND SO HEART FELT. THE BUSY WORLD THAT THE HURT HAS NOT TOUCHED OR FELT SEEMED TO HAVE LEFT US BEHIND. THIS IS A WONDERFUL SITE TO COME TO AND READ THE BEAUITFUL EMOTIONS FROM YOUR HEARTS.THANK YOU SO MUCH. YOU ARE TRULLY SPECIAL ANGELS TO REACH OUT TO HURTING HEARTS.

You are so right Angel Moms. The days before and after always seem harder that the day itself, and it seems those of us who have lost a precious child have been left behind. I still get all blurry eyed sometimes when the special days come and go and close friends and family don’t even mention my child’s name. They seem to think bringing up her name or recalling a fond memory or admitting they miss Diane too will somehow upset me or make matters worse. And no matter how much I wish they would say something; anything … they still don’t; even after all this time. Although I no longer expect them to do so, it still saddens me. It is truly a blessing to be able to come here to share, to pray for and with other angel moms and angel dads, and say exactly how I feel; knowing I will never be judged and that I am surrounded and supported and prayed for by others who can relate to what it feels like to lose a beloved child. As some angel mom wrote long ago; When it comes to losing a child, “They really don’t have a clue … We hope they never do!”
LOVE2U,
Verna

Hello trisha99, I'm sorry I didn't finish rambling and submit in time to post on your Garrett's B-day, but please know you were in my thoughts and prayers leading up to, as well as throughout the day. Thank you for your kind words and remember you are one of those special angels that you mentioned. No one can carry such a heavy cross alone. When we reach out to each other as God would have us to do, we find that our individual crosses become a bit easier to bear. So feel free to post and share anytime. This is OUR circle of love! :) Also, add your Garrett's [HD] if you would like, and Chris will add it to our Special Dates list. God's peace and blessings,
LOVE2U,
Verna

LOVE2U,

To all who are fairly new to our circle I share the last of five poems I wrote shortly before my daughter was killed in a chain reaction type crash which involved drunk driving. Through the years, it continues to strengthen my undying faith in a loving God, and provide healing to my shattered heart. God's peace and blessings,
Verna

The Holy Spirit said to me, "Go write this down!"

Chain Reaction

Sometimes I cry myself to sleep
When to life's trials I see no end
Just when it seems that know one cares
God says to me, "I'll be your friend."

Sometimes I feel life is not worth living
I get tired of trying I don't want to go on
Just when I've almost given up ...
God steps right in and makes me strong.

And uses me to help someone
Who just can't bear their cross alone...
When to life's trials they see no end...
I say to them, "I'll be your friend!"

Heavenly Father, ~ I pray for all angel moms & angel dads who find themselves deep in the valley today and see no way out. Please give them the strength to keep on climbing even when they see no way out. Please remind them, Lord, that there are others who can relate to the indescribable grief they are going through; grief that takes one's breath away! Lift them up, Lord, and give them precious moments of peace as only you can. Thank you for hearing my heartfelt prayer! Amen

Special heartfelt prayers go up today and tomorrow for angel mom Chris and angel dad Mike.

Stephanie, I know you are watching over your parents and I pray you will send them a sign or two today or tomorrow to let them know you are alive and well in heaven surrounded by all the other angels watching you dancing on a star! When I visited your memorial site recently & viewed your photo, I couldn't help but note what a beautiful angel you were while here on earth. I imagine you are even more beautiful in heaven where all is perfect, peaceful, and filled with unending joy forevermore!

As angel mom Cindy would say ... "Soar with the angels" sweetheart, as you & the other angels celebrate both your [earthly & heavenly] birthdays in the presence of God! :)

Hello Everyone, please send up a prayer for my aunt who turned 95 on Sept. 20th. She had surgery yesterday to try to prevent amputation of her foot. She's had two stints done in the past and was still experiencing unbearable pain. This time they placed an artificial vein in her leg to increase the blood flow to her foot. Please pray that, God willing, it will ease her pain. This surgery, we were told, is a last resort. All we can do is pray. Thank you soooo much for your prayers!
God's peace and blessings,
LOVE2U

In Loving Memory
Of Our Guardian Angels

An Angel Mom's Prayer

Dear God…
We know you have our children there
Please keep them in your loving care
Please let them know
Not a day goes by…
That in our hearts
Our souls still cry

Oh God in heaven we miss them so!
We wish they did not have to go!
Still home to heaven
All must return…
For that we thank you
Oh Holy One!

Blue Angel

I am your guardian angel
I am never far
I keep watch over you
Wherever you are
I feel your joy
I feel your pain
Your joy in sunshine
Your sadness is rain
Some days are harder
Than others you see
I miss you so much
Just as you miss me
Someday we will be
Together you see
We will make up for time lost
Our spirits will be free
No more will sadness
Make us feel blue
Until that day comes …
Just remember …
How much I love you!

WHETHER TRUE ARE NOT, I KNOW THAT HIS ANGELS' WERE THERE. WE ARE NEVER ALONE. I SPEAK OF MY SON OFTEN, I GET SILENCE A LOT OF THE TIME. I FEEL HIM AROUND ME MORE SINCE THERE HAS BEEN TIME FOR HEALING OVER MY FOREVER SCARRED HEART. I TOO JOIN IN WITH YOU PRAYING FOR WOUNDED SOULS THROUGH GRIEF FROM LOSS. GOD BLESS YOU AND ALL THE OTHER ANGEL MOMS AND DADS THAT HAVE LOVED AND SUFFERED PERSONAL LOSS FROM ALL THE DAYS,MONTHS,YEARS THAT ALL ADD UP TO UNCONDITIONAL LOVE TO BE CONT.

Dear Trisha99, Thank you for your kind words. Yes, I’ve walked that path of hurt, pain and sorrow that only a parent who has lost a beloved child can truly understand. Thank God through the years I have found much relief through reaching out to other parents who are also on their journey of loss grief and healing. As I am sure you know, it takes a long time to reach a point where we realize the healing of our torn and shattered hearts has begun. No, I had not heard the one about numbers coming up in threes. I don’t doubt it though, because I have experienced signs which to me represent the presence of angel in many ways. And yes, I do believe with all my heart and soul that we will see our children again and continue the unconditional love on the other side. May God continue to bless you and give you peace as only He can.
Love and Hugs from heaven,
Verna

Hello Alexandra and Phyllis, ~ Sorry I didn't get to post to you on yesterday, but my thoughts and prayers were with you on your beloved children's special day. I pray that God gave you peace and lots of fond memories even if the tears came. We angel moms know that its okay to shed tears because they too are a part of the healing of our hearts. May God continue to give you those precious moments of peace for which we all pray.
