Today, I sat down at the piano to sing and find some peace. The first page that popped up had Tears to Heaven on it. I didn't think of the significance until I started playing it...another sign that God and the saints are watching out for me. So I thought I would share the blessing I received with my friends here on CM who are experiencing the same loss as I am.


This year my New Year's resolution is going to be "find joy everywhere" and I have already started with finding so many wonderful friends here on CM. God's blessings to you all. As my oldest daughter said to me, "Never let your memories be greater than your dreams."


In Christ,


Elizabeth

biggrinHow beautiful Elizabeth! It is always so wonderful to get those "bonk on the head" messages!

My husband's special number was 13...I told my kids that this is our lucky year! I am so happy that I "accidentally" found CM when I was looking for a new parish after moving. The Parish had an Ad for CM!

A blessed, grace filled New Year to you and yours!!!

Thanks for posting!

Dear Sweet Elizabeth,

Thank you for sharing such a lovely song with us. You had no way of knowing this, but this particular song was one of Bob's favorites. In fact, the night he passed, at home, I had this song playing softly in the background. So I'm taking your post as a sign that 2013 is going to be a year of happy memories and moving forward.

Thank you and God bless you in this New Year!! hug Praying rose

You are welcome, Teresa. Hope the kids New Year's Eve party went well. If it went like those at my house used to go, there will be plenty to clean up after everyone goes home and a lot of good memories to talk about for years to come. My kids are still talking about those New Year's Eve parties.


Here's to a great year for us all! theheart

hug hug Elizabeth, I had planned on saying a "short" prayer for him last night, as several of us said we would....God must have been watching out for me, knowing that it was New Year's Eve (and that often either the celebratory activities or unyielding urge to fall asleep early allows prayers to be overlooked). I got a phone call from an out-of-town acquaintance asking me if I could take some Fixodent down to the county jail to her daughter because her bridge had broken....I was headed out of town to celebrate the New Year's Eve with friends in SF, so it was "on my way"....

Well. when I got to the jail, I was told the nurse would come get the little box soon. A few minutes later, after hearing a LOT of commotion in the adjoining cell area, the intercom in the jail lobby came on, and the voice told me the nurse would be delayed at least a half hour....It's yucky, stinky, and gross in that lobby. "Oh, great"... rolling eyes irked

And then that's when I remembered your needs for prayer, and had the opportunity to say the Rosary for the Joyful Mysteries--joy for your husband's birth, for the joy he brought to his parents from the time of his conception, joy for his baptism, joy for his growth and wisdom he shared with others, and joy for the gift of life he shared with you through the births of his own children! Right there in that foul ante-room, I was transported to a more heavenly place, and co-joined misery with happiness. What moved me? Had to have been the same Holy Spirit that brought you to play Tears In Heaven.... Dove rose
