Perpetual state of Grace

She lives in a Perpetual state of Grace
before you hold her sins up to her face
just remember she once wore them
like a Scarlet Letter,
people in glass houses should not cast stones
after all they may need to join her in this
Perpetual state of Grace she calls home!

      1. Just going back thru some of your posts. Thank you for the prayers, and know i’m praying for you and Alex also. I read the story about Joey today, shared it on FB, and I’m still sobbing over it all. So moving and loving, and what a beautiful voice! I think I’m going to put you in charge of choosing my music selections Angel friend. I have to sit here and go thru hours of drivel to find one that speaks to me, then I check your post and you have the exact thing I was looking for.
        Online too long now, so I’m going to rest my fingers. Call me. Have a great, wonderful spectacular rest of the day Pink/Purple Angel. A.

      3. That makes everything fall back into perspective. Suddenly my problems are so small in comparison. Indy will grow up without her mom, but hopefully will still know and feel the love Joey has for her. And now I’m sitting here, nose running, and sobbing again. I think I had better go cook something, and put a splint on my finger at the same time. Rain again. So ready for sunshine and perpetual 80 degrees. Have a good day Pink/Purple Angel friend.

      4. I know I fell asleep praying for them last night. I checked his blog and no new posts. I was thinking when that song When I’m gone came out she had not been diagnosed yet so how amazing he will have that song and also it was and is too sad to listen to now but I made it 1/2 way through. I was thinking how beautiful that they have all those videos for Indy. Also she recorded books for her reading to her. I was thinking all the tears we cry for them will maybe ease their sadness. I turned the comments off on that post but what is so amazing is that I’m so busy at work and wanted you to see it and you did. I love that we are connected that way.
        It’s the last day of my big deadlines and I’m worn out. I want to call you maybe tomorrow. That would be Friday. Lol I get my days mixed up. ๐Ÿ˜„ I love you. I love our little notes back and forth. Have a good day Angel friend! ๐Ÿ˜‡๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿจ

      5. I love this also, and did wonder about the comments being turned off. I knew I could find you some way to comment on that one though. That entire story still gives me chills, and it still makes me sob my heart out. But wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone had the opportunity to leave such a rich heritage behind for their children? I sure hope Indy grows up loving and appreciating all the things Joey has done for her. It’s just so hard to guess what kids will remember and love about their parents.
        My days have been mixed up since time began so don’t feel bad there. I’ll be waiting for your call, but if you are too tired get the rest you need. I sure don’t want you being sick because you are doing too much for others and not taking care of yourself.
        Another gloomy day here, so nasty looking outside. I’m getting a definite cabin fever, closed in, get me outta here feeling, and will break out on Saturday for my fave places. Another armload of silk flowers to cover the walls and give the feeling of being in a garden.
        Okay, back to my nest for a few more zzz’s. Hooray for deadlines met and over with. Love you Pink Angel friend.

      6. I felt to honor them also. I think sometimes it’s hard to deal with all the words when something like this is so precious and tender. I was hoping that people would read and be encouraged. I was thinking that I wasn’t ready for reading all of that but I’m facing such odd medical problems with Alex that I want to look at it. I think when my Pa passed it took so long to process and that was in 2011. The year Alex graduated High school what’s so off is that he died that week so I don’t remember much of her prom. I just sent my big camera with one of the mom’s and then went to bury my Pa. Death is part of life and something no one wants to face but I think when we are forced to look at it, well not only does it scare us but also there is a tenderness with that and also a sacred time. I’m the only one that read my Pa’s poems to him before he passed and I would ask do you want me to read it again and he’d move his head so I read till he closed his eyes to sleep. I prayed that God would show me how to be there for my Pa while he was trapped in his body. One day I read about hunting, bears, lions and such long stories. He wasn’t speaking then, I left for dinner and then when I came back the nurse said Oh Michelle I went to your Pa’s room to run the shades down and I always say Hi Captain Dan, how are you and he said I’m tired I’ve been bear hunting all day. So that let me know that I was there for him like he needed me to be. I always ask God for that gift so that whomever needs me that I’m sensitive to their needs, the unspoken ones.
        Kind of like here. Oh wow! I love that! I’m waiting for my pages to get here so I had a few minutes to write! I love you! I’ll be back later. I’m taking lunch over to Alex, baked potato. I love those when I feel puny. Love you too! โค

      1. I can only imagine how hard it is for you. Having never gone through it, I can’t pretend to understand the pain and the hell you must be going through. But know that I am always here for you M. Either a direct message on twitter, email, whatever, I am here for you.

      2. Okay A. I will. One more week! We are counting down. My mom’s church paid for us to fly so that burden of driving will be lessened! I’m so thankful for these little graces. โค

      3. That is wonderful. I love the churches in America. I wondered how so many people over there can be so religious. I look at the churches here, and at the end of the service, everyone goes and doesn’t see each other until the following week.

        Whereas when one friend’s husband died, her church helped with doing her garden for her, paid for underground sprinklers, even came out and helped do the garden for her. Then yours helps in this way. Another friend, I haven’t spoken to her in a couple of years, we didn’t exactly part on good terms, but her church helped her out in a great way as well.

        The churches over here seem to be money driven whilst the churches over there seem to be community driven and they do things FOR the community. If I were to live over there, it may actually convince me that there was someone upstairs.

        It’s a beautiful spirit.

      4. AWE thank you A for what you shared. I agree with you! Yesterday my mom drove up and brought more gifts. One day wanted to give Alex spending money. She said Mom why are people so nice to us. I said well this is what happens when you let your guard down and share others are able to give and help you make it! When she was little it was just me. I don’t know why I always thought I had to be so strong. It’s much easier this way allowing other to shoulder part of the load! You are such a wonderful blessing A. I told Rosy every time I see her I think of you and how we all were blogging together from the start. There are still a few of us out there. ๐Ÿ™‚ We are strong A to withstand all the crazies that come and go! ๐Ÿ˜› Yay for us!

        Letting people in can be a good thing. Sometimes we have to fight to let them in because we build walls so high, some people just walk away.
