Angelversary Dime

I was buying flowers for my son’s resting place,
As tears were running down my face,
I kept thinking how it’s been four years,
Since the last time that he was here.

I walked out to my car to find,
A bright and shiny silver dime,
Beside my car’s front door,
Not something that I was looking for.

The date on the dime was 2007,
The year my son went to Heaven,
I knew this was a sign for me,
From my son for me to see.

A way of validating what was on my mind,
Acknowledging the four year length of time,
A message that was sent my way,
To help comfort on this difficult day.

I was amazed to receive this Heaven sent sign,
In the parking lot for me to find,
A message of love and continuing ties,
Tangible proof that love never dies.

A song about signs

I found this wonderful song about some of the signs our loved ones in spirit use to communicate with us.  They want to comfort us in our grief and to show us they are still near.  I love listening to this.  I hope that you will like it too. It is so reassuring to receive these signs of continuing love and connection.  Look and ask for signs from your loved ones.

Ascension

(Click on image for larger version.)

You slipped from this world sight unseen,
Lifted on silent angel wings,
Soaring in glorious celestial flight,
Through the darkness of the night.

Past a brilliant full moon on high,
The sky was beautiful the night you died,
The stars were sparkling, the air was clear,
But in a moment you were no longer here.

Lovingly held, you were flown away,
It was not meant for you to stay,
I don’t know the why of this,
But know you dwell in Heavenly bliss.

The world is no longer the one I knew,
I always thought I’d be with you,
I pray for help to carry on,
For my heart is broken with you now gone.

Rainbow

     Just over a month ago I saw an amazing "rainbow bridge" in the sky from my backyard.  Last week I saw this rainbow from my parents backyard when I was visiting.  Yesterday I was watching "Dancing With the Stars" on TV.  The Band Perry performed their hit song, "If I Die Young."   This is a verse from that song:

"Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother,
She'll know I'm safe with you when she stands under my colors..."

I am grateful for these rainbow messages!

Angels Across the USA Event in Northern Virginia

The Bereaved Parents of the USA Northern Virginia Chapter hosted The Angels Across the USA workshop and concert yesterday in Lorton. It was held at the beautiful and historic Pohick church. This was an intimate setting with lovely people all connected by hearts that have suffered great loss. It was a wonderful healing event and a video was made that will allow Alan and Denise to bring their grief ministry to groups across the country that they would be unable to reach in person.

Angelic Vision

     I posted this same picture with my Rainbow Bridge poem last month, shortly after it was taken.  After contemplating the significance of this beautiful message in the sky I wrote another poem.  Here is my latest poem with the angel clouds picture again.
A rainbow’s promise and angelic love,
Shown to me in the sky above,
I gazed in wonder at the clouds of white,
Amazed to see this glorious sight.

Two angel shaped clouds with a rainbow in between,
A bridge of colors to be seen,
Rays of aqua, violet, and blue,
So lovely and luminous to view.

Was this a heavenly message for me,
A promise of things yet to be?
I long to cross this rainbow bridge,
To understand the life I live.

Loving angels are guiding my way,
I am listening to hear what they say,
Love is the beacon, the heart connection,
That shines the light on new direction.
