Like a Butterfly (IMO. Aunt Terry)

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on January 9, 2017 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (0)
Like a Butterfly... She was here, and now she is gone. She was weak, but oh so strong. She was fragile, but so unbreakable. She gave courage when it didn't exist. She gave comfort when it just didn't fit. She gave hope when it seems almost gone. Accepting fate, she changed. Spreading her wings, she flew free. Cherishing the moments, we await to see her again.

Ending Procrastication

Some never follow through. Allowing others to fall through. Call it procrastination. Call it denial. Call it simply lack of courage. Then one day, the words appear to guide you. May that one day be today.

911 Remembrance

For those not there that day, you know you froze in silence watching that plane on the screen. And to know it wasn't a show, it wasn't a movie, it was reality unfolding as our hearts grew heavy. You stood by a TV and watched, not able to do anything but pray. Tears fell, anxiety heightened and disbelief was real. All you could do was silently pray, silently beg, and silently hope. Hope and pray the deaths might be saved. As reality set in, you knew their fate. So you prayed. Prayed for their death to be fast. Painless. And most importantly they would land in the arms of the Angels. Prayers were heard. Prayers for their families. Prayers for the rescuers. Prayers for the pain and the suffering and the damage and the anger that was filling everyone. Everyone that was experiencing this moment. A moment that would not heal overnight, nor in twenty. Angels prayed. Angels caught the souls of those that died and brought them straight to heavens gate. It was there they found out what happened. it was there that we learned in heaven there is pain And as they entered the gates, they found healing. One day, we may have this but for now the anger, the sadness, and the grief remain because we are human. We have our body, and our live, which is what those in heave have had to sacrifice. You must have faith to know their spirit amongst us will always be the only gift we can honor to release our grief. For those that caused the incident, and died, that is when we realize the belief in hell is real. For those in hell, shall not get our attention, or any honor, or any of our forgiveness. Which is why those in heaven shine bright. For the actions they left behind make us better people. Send love to all those that carry grief from this day. May you know you are not alone. May you be blessed with signs of comfort. Healed with the peace of knowing your loved ones are remembered. ~ Cora Wang

A Prayer for Peace (a novena) In union with all people with a kind heart...Pray for Peace. Peace in our homes. Peace in our hearts. Peace in our families. Peace with our friends and our neighbors. Peace in our communities. Peace in our country. Peace in our world. Unite us all in kindness, compassion, and a commitment to make this world better, without excluding anyone. May those blinded by this wish, have a change of heart so they too will see that happiness is love thyself, thy neighbor, and all lives. For all lives matter. Dear God, Mother Mary, Holy Spirits, and Angels above, we pray for this peace. And we ask for healing compassion, joyful love, and universal kindness. Amen.

Purple (In Memory of Angela Beaudry)

The color purple shines, and brings more than an awareness of the disease that took you home. It is a symbol of your own passion. Your love, your spirit. Purple shades our lives, yet many do not notice. Purple may only be a color to some but for many it is a passion. Your passion reflects your passion for prayer; for faith; for hope; for educational help; and a passion to share moments of friendship, compassion, and life. We all have moments we aren't perfect; and we all have had moments of accepting things we didn't plan for. Those are often the moments that make us stronger. They are the moments that allow our colors to shine forth. You are a purple angel on the rainbow of heaven's promises of true love, forgiveness, healing strength; and most of all...peace. I wish you peace, your family peace, and all whose life you touched... peace, joyful memories, and the courage to live life with the faith to know we will meet again. Rest In Peace Pretty Lady.

Prevailing over anxiety

We must be trustful. We must trust. We must have faith. We must have the ability to make a difference. Make the difference with kind words, actions, and gestures. This will prevail over any anxiety.
