Where God Lives...

      All of my followers here on my blog know I am a twice bereaved parent. What very few of you all know is that I carried my oldest daughter across & personally handed her to the angels who completed the journey with her. So you can trust me when I tell you this: if you want to know where God lives put yourself somewhere in a place of peace; get lost in some music, or the soft sound of the wind in the trees, or anything that lifts you up. Close your eyes & feel the joy. THAT is where God lives, and THAT is where Heaven is.

     

     In two weeks Cheyenne, my older daughter turns 16. In three weeks Emily, my second daughter, turns 10. They are celebrating their lives in heaven but we will be celebrating here on earth. For the month of August, here on my blog & on Facebook,  I will share with you my thoughts, feelings, & experiences they taught me. I will tell you about my journey taking Cheyenne across, I will tell you about their visits from heaven, and I will try to explain where and how I get my strength.


    The recent loss of our Navy Seals, as well as the recent loss of two family members and a few others we know only through mutual friends/family have helped me to anchor myself again to that which matters most: LOVE. Open your eyes and you will begin to see it everywhere.


If you are so moved, please share this blog with others, You never know who might need the words of advice or the comfort. In the words of my dear friend & spiritual mentor, Julianna: "I love each and every one of you."

I was just thinking the other day that Cheyenne would be turning 16 this month. Hard to believe it was that long ago (plus a few months) that we were in the costume "closet" and you told me you were expecting. My how time flies by! Cheyenne taught a lot of people a lot of things, and her sister carried on the lessons. Now you are here to continue them as well. Thank you.

This is a beautiful post, full of wisdom borne the fire of experience. I have friends who have lost their children and I'll definitely be sharing it with them. Bless you for helping others with your words.

I know some of your stories, but definitely not all. You have been through so much.
