Justin and Ryan...

R.I.P. babies...We love you and miss you!Their grandma Virgie use to sing The Recipe Song to them...
Gonna make a recipe
I just can't wait to start,
It's not the kind you serve at meals,
you make it in your heart.
If you've never tried it
you've got to have a taste,
so come into the kitchen and we'll make a batch of praise.
First you take a cup of faith
and stir it all around;
add some joy and laughter
till it makes a bubbly sound.
Mix in some agape love
till it begins to ring
Pour into a willing heart and serve it to the King!
Jesus Loves Me this I know, for the bible tells me so... This was read by their aunt April to their mommy Jenny...
Wings & Halos
We were so excited when we woke up today
We heard our Mommy was coming to play
We washed our wings and our halo too
Cuz that's what Mommy likes us to do
We went to the place where we knew she'd be
It's where she comes to visit us you see
She comes for comfort in her despair
Oh Mommy, can't you feel us touching your hair?
We are by your side all through the night
We never let you out of our sight
We were your babies for only 7 years
But soon we can be together and play dear
You know we'll never be apart
You'll never let us leave your heart
Mommy we're not really in the ground,
lift up your head and look around
The clouds, the birds, the rain drops too
these gifts of life were given to you
Don't cry for us Mommy, We know you're here
Please let us wipe away that tear.
We were sent to you from up above
And you showed us the ultimate love
Remember your relatives, the ones who have died?
They brought us here, We're by their side
They watch over us and help us to see
just how much you really love us
So don't be unhappy when you come visit us
We're the angels above you, up in the tree
And when you leave, you'll never be through
You'll always be our Mommy
And we will always love you We took the kids to the lake to release some balloons...We had actually planned on going to the lake the day before but didn't get to so the balloons were already deflating, which made us all giggle. We gathered as Debbie said a beautiful prayer...We counted to 3 and the wind blew the balloons away into the water. They looked very pretty...

We didn't say "Goodbye", we simply said, "C-U Later"

It's time to Change...

I read this and it seemed PERFECT for what I'm going through right now :) Actually, I think it's perfect for a lot of people...

It's Time to Change
by Trixie Asirvatham

Change is exciting, but the unknown can be frightening too. Familiar faces and things have a reassuring quality to them. Fear of the unknown can make even a good change (like a job promotion or a trip abroad) a potential source of stress. The thing to do is to recognise that change is a fact of life, and to learn to look at change positively and constructively. Change happens. It's how you respond that matters. As with all things, the choice is up to you.

I step into the future
Don't know what's in store
I'll be walking new pathways
Learning more,
Meeting new faces,Making new friends,
The time has come to move on,It's time to change.
It's hard to leave the things you know and understand
And set out on a journey on unfamiliar land
It's hard to leave old friends behind and walk away,
But the time has come to move on, it's time to change.
But my friends are a part of me,
A part of my personality,Always there to guide me
Wherever I happen to be
The past leaves its mark on me,And makes me the person I am
And the good things go with me
When it's time to change.
The seasons turn
And the years move on
Nothing ever stands still
Changing day by day...
Good wishes go with me
And speed me on towards the sun
The time has come to move on,It's time to change.
The seasons turn, and the years move on,Nothing ever stands still, changing day by day
Good wishes go with me
And speed me on towards the sun
The time has come to move on,It's time to change.
Change for the better?
Change for the worse?
Who can tell it better…It's for me to make it work
The sun is up and shining
And there's a rainbow in the sky
I'm going to find my pot of gold,
It's time to change.It's time to change, It's time to change,The time has come to move on,it's time to change.

A prayer...

Dear Jesus, Divine Physician and Healer of the Sick, we turn to You in this time of illness.

O dearest Comforter of the troubled, alleviate our worry and sorrow with Your gentle love, and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden.
Dear God, we place our sick under Your care and humbly ask that You restore Your servant Yolanda to health again. Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge Your holy will and know that whatsoever You do, You do for the love of us.
