I read the most amazing book!

...first I want to thank my mother-in-law for sharing this book with me...it was a great book...with a different insight into what happens when we leave this life...

I recently finished reading {The Message} by Lance Richardson...I read it in one evening...and I have to say I enjoyed it...and I wrote down many things that intrigued me and gave me HOPE...since losing my dad and my father-in-law, Tom in Aug. 2011, and my Dad in Dec. 2011, I have many questions and I am struggling with this process of grieving. I wished that I had someone to talk with...someone that would be able to give me the answers to my questions...I know that is impossible...which makes this so much more painful...but one thing I do know for certain is that my dad I will be together again...and that brings me comfort...it's just all these days between then and now will be hard...thank goodness for all our memories...thank goodness I have so many photos...because if it wasn't for them and the memories I know that I would be even worse off then I am now...anyway back to the book...one of the things that the book said, that kind of caught me by surprise was,"I've enjoyed helping you and your family so much over the past years" ...I sat back and thought about the last 5 months...since my FIL has been gone...and you may not believe but I do...there was a time where my daughter was in an accident at school and she should have been hurt VERY badly, but surprisingly, she wasn't...her injury was minimal...I do believe that her Peepaw was there watching over her and helped her to escape those injuries...so is there where we discover our guardian angels? I think so...my children and myself now two very special ones looking over us...now...I would like to think we did before...my Grandpa...my good friend Dana...this book continued on...it stated that when we pray to God for help it is our dead relatives and loved ones who are sent by him to help us in answers to our prayers...thus we weld links and bonds of love within the family forever.
...it stated that music is a great tool of god...I have always LOVED music...I have always felt that it has spoke it me in a manner like no other...the book mentions that listening to music and being moved to tears...well it is because the spirit is intensely present...well good lord...the spirit is ALWAYS PRESENT with me then!
...also that God delivers assistance to us and what more a perfect plan could he use than through righteous family members.

My friends that know me know that I do not preach...I am merely just sharing my thoughts and feeling about this book...if you would like to read this book for yourself just click on the link above and it will take you to Amazon.com and you can get the book for yourself. If you've lost a loved one than you know the pain I am feeling...if you haven't then don't judge me...and my feelings and how I am dealing with my grief...

...having an open mind...is a good thing...being able to try and understand what happens after we die...is what I am trying to read and learn from friends and family. I would personally like to know where my dad and Tom are because I want to be with them again someday....besides the fact...that I just like to know and plan every aspect of my life...I'm such a planner ...everyone knows that about me...lol...there is no doubt in my mind that we will be together again...

That book sounds amazing. It seems to confirm what I have often thought. Grieving is never easy...it's so personal. I have lost just a few very important people in my life...I think I am lucky in that way. However, with each one brings new aches, changes, and guardians. My heart goes out to you Renee'!! There are no words to help...just know that I am here...in any way you need!

Thanks Kristi :)
...I know that through this experience my true friends have reached out to my family...they have been here supporting us the entire time...they helped during the entire illness and managed to keep us moving forward...when we were exhausted and barely able to continue on...I saw true selfless acts during this time...I will never forget...
