Bren, I am so sorry that you have such sorrow. I did that same thing with my daddy. It is a painful feeling when we realize. Our lives are so busy. We rush around and think "I will do it later, tomorrow....". Our Father has him now and all these things are very clear to him. For us left here it feels like unfinished business. We feel regret.... sorrow..... Uncle Mel is releived, rejoicing, praising... I long for the day that I too can see our Heavenly Father.
Bren, just to let you know something..... You are loved more than you know. I love the beauty that lives inside the hard working woman. You radiate love with every word you type. I am very sure that like us, uncle Mel knew.

For the record, I love each of you here. My prayers are with you each night along with praise to our Father for sending me here to be a part of such a wonderful, faithful, inspiring group of ladies. God bless you all.

Love and hugs

Good morning.

Bren, Uncle Mel loved ya, and he again is saying "give the kid a break". He knows how much you loved him and how much he meant to you. Sorry for your loss.

Awwwe, Bren I'm so sorry for your loss. But it's true. He's home and happy. It's those that are left behind that grieve. My Grandma made us promise that we'd have a picnic after her funeral. She wanted us to have fun. It turned out to be a beautiful day for a picnic. Go figure.

What a great idea! A picnic (our snow might hamper that a little...get it "hamper"?)

He has requested no funeral as have all of those that have passed before him in the fam. We don't believe in them. I'm not sure if he'll have a celebration memorial but for me: every year he made popcorn balls for all of us no matter where we lived he would mail them to us so I'm going to make the family popcorn balls and send them in memory of. I was the one that was blessed with the recipe a few years ago. I'm so lucky!

How about a little ba-ding-bing humor on this cold day. Here it is wet and 38 deg (sleeted on my way in). Anyway..... I got an email from a co-worker and thought I would share this light humor.

Bren I'm thinking about you at this sad time, sending you hugs..... I'm sure your uncle is smiling now and knows how dear you were to him and how much he meant to you....
I always have my own little thing on my grandparents passing dates, I light a candle and talk to them, tell them about my life the passed year and how much I miss them - makes me feel pretty good!

Deb sending good luck wishes that you get a second interview....

Bren sending you hugs and prayers of comfort at this time. I am sure your uncle is smiling on you from above.

Dawna I have to say WOW. I placed an order with scraputante and was amazed at the amount of product that was shipped and the cost of shipping INCREDIBLE. Very cheap charges to ship to Canada, I would say almost as cheap as shipping within the States. I am very impressed. Now to get creating and see if I can find that Deadline for the DT call LOL.

Just thought that a little of the light side would help. I too like that one. Of course I am one of the worse about not going on Sunday anymore. I do take my Wednesday night bible study very serious thou. Funny thing is that Pastor was just talking about a church where a man he knows was struggling really hard with his faith and decided to go to church only to be greeted by one of those Christians that takes thier seat very personal and had a usher ask him to move. The man said that he would do better than that, he would leave.
We become creatures of habit and sometimes we do not realize what effect we have on others around us that tend to disrupt that habit.

Father God, we praise You for the day that You have provided for us as Your children. We asked that You will lead us this day down a path of righteousness. Help us to recognize the little moments in our day that could have an affect on someone else that could be going through something difficult. Give us strength oh Lord to smile when we want to scream, so that Your love will radiate from our hearts and be received by one in need. We pray this in Your Son Jesus name.

Thank you for today's prayer Lorna.

You know I have good cries when someone moves on but often times people ask how I can get over the tears so quickly. First I will say it isn't my daughter that passed which would probably be the WORST. Second I've been blessed in that those that have left me have had a full life before going and third is:

John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”
