In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

A New Beginning

I don't believe your existence ends when you die. There's too much power to the force we call life and all that would be left would be pure energy, which exists in a different time reference than ours.

With that written, I wish my mom a safe journey for her new beginning. God rest her soul.

I'll miss her forever.

  3. Jess, I'm sorry for your loss. It seems so sudden.
    My mom died 10 minutes after I had phoned her.
    I had no idea she was so close to the end either.
    You have been, and will remain in my prayers.

    1. She went downhill rapidly over the weekend. It was sudden, but I had a feeling it would be quick.

  4. I do believe you're right: there's got to be something left beyond the dust.

    1. We have very little knowledge of the universe. It would be arrogant of our species to believe the wonder we call life ends when our bodies stop being a vessel of our soul.

  5. I had a heart to heart discussion one day with an exec at one of my clients about his journey to the other side when he was clinically dead during an operation. His story gave me chills.

    The song I Can Only Imagine always reminds me of his experience. He described it al the most peaceful, worryless time. He didn't want to return. But the docs brought him back.

    I'm sorry for your loss, but I have no doubt she is experiencing the greatest peace.

    Prayers for you, my friend.

    1. I have a friend that drowned and was revived. He has no fear of death and feels comfort in knowing he'll pass on to a better place.

  6. Oh my, I'm so sorry. I could tell there was much suffering going on, but I didn't get from your posts that her time was so close to an end. You have my sincerest condolences.

  8. He talked so much about the peace. The complete void of any worries whatsoever. I don't think we realize just how much of our lives we worry, even when things are good. We worry about our loved ones, about stupid things sometimes.

    I watched him for several years deal with stressful situations and then he would take a deep breath and later he would tell me that he would remind himself that nine of this silly stuff really matters.

    1. Thank you.

      She's the last. I lost my father in 1989. The loss introduces a unique type of loneliness.

  10. I'm so sorry about your loss, I lost my mother to cancer when I was 22, she was 43. They say time heals all wounds, it's been 28 years and that wound still hasn't completely healed. I doubt it ever will. If there's anything you need, no matter how insignificant it may seem, don't hesitate to ask, if I can help you've got it. Condolences my friend.

  11. It's hard to understand until you go through it. How some days can be better than others but none are ever the same as they were before. I know you will do well in your remembering but I'll offer a prayer anyway.

    Our Church has had an abnormal number of deaths this year. Some were expected, most were not, and the hardest have been the young ones. This past Sunday Dr. Jon Weatherly gave a talk on death. It was the first time I ever saw people asking for a copy of a sermon right after it was given.

    This link is to the sermon player at White Oak Christian Church, you can download it or not. God Bless.

  12. My sincere condolences. I know the pain of a losing a brother, I can only image that losing the one who gave you life is ever so much worse. My thoughts are with you and your family.

  13. Jess,
    I just now saw this post. I lost my father in 1991 and my mother in 1993. I still miss her and cry because she is gone. There is really no consoling me. When my brother died in 2001, I was glad she did not know it. So, now I am crying.

    I cannot get my blogger to work, so I just wander about blogs I like and read them...lol.
