HELLO MY FRIEND!!!!


PRAY  FOR  A  CURE!!!


The  weather  man  today  was  asking  for  people  to  send  in

their  pictures  of  the  snow.   He  stated  to  take  the  photographs

from  the  inside  of  your  windows  or  doors,  so  as  to  not  risk

falling  out  side.


This  piece  of  stain  glass  has  hung  in  our  picture  window  since

the  day  we  moved  in.

It  brings  me  comfort  and  when  I   have  my  springtime  curtains

up,  the  stained  glass  dances  in  the  hallway.

I  prayed  for  Leila  this  morning  and  all  the  other

people  on  my  prayer  list.

I  BEGGED  FOR  A  MIRACLE.

You  can  see  Spacey,  my  oldest  cat  watching  the

snow  fall  this  morning.


Hanging  in  front  of  my  favorite  piece  of  stained  glass

is  a  copper  butterfly  that  is  a  candle  holder.

We  burn  a  candle  for  Amy  every  night.

It  is  our  star  shining  back  at  her.


When  ever  Lelia  would  see  Amy,  she  would

say,

"HELLO  MY  FRIEND!"

LEILA  WENT  HOME  AT  3:00PM,

TODAY...

TUESDAY

  FEBRUARY  01,  2011

UNTO  THE  LOVING  ARMS  OF

OUR  LORD  AND  SAVIOUR

JESUS  CHRIST.

AND  THEN,

GRINNING  FROM  EAR  TO  EAR,

SHE  SAID,

"HELLO  MY  FRIEND!!"

AND  US...

LEFT  BEHIND,  WE  SAY,

"SEE  YOU  SOON,  MY  FRIEND!"


PLEASE  PRAY  FOR

KORBI...HER  BELOVED  HUSBAND

HER  PRECIOUS  MOTHER...LEILA  WAS  HER

DEAREST  FRIEND

HER  SISTER,  SHERRY

AND  ALL  HER  BROTHERS,

NIECES  AND  NEPHEWS...WHO  LOVED

THEIR  AUNT  LEILA

AND  HER  FRIENDS

IT  IS  A  VERY  SAD  DAY  FOR  US...

BUT  HEAVEN  IS  REJOICING

AND  KEEP  YOU  UNTIL  WE  BLOG  AGAIN.

THANK  YOU  SO  VERY  MUCH  FOR  ALL  YOUR

PRAYERS  FOR  LEILA  AND  ALL  THE  OTHER

PEOPLE  ON  MY  PRAYER  LIST.

YOU  ARE  PRICELESS.

HAVE  A  SUGAR  SWEET  DAY  IN  SPITE  OF  WHAT  IS

GOING  ON.

HUGS

Debbie, it is so difficult for those left behind...I pray for the peace that goes beyond all understanding for the family and friends. While we are here with heavy hearts the angels are rejoicing and dancing with our loved ones. You are so good to give such comfort..(())

Debby said...

I'm so sorry. It is comforting I am sure that she is now with your daughter. ((((HUGS))))

Donnie said...

I'm so sorry to hear about Leila. My prayers go out to all her family and friends.

ShirleyC said...

I'm so very sorry about Leila, and that I know it's breaking your heart. At least you have some peace in knowing she's with Amy now rejoicing together.

Donna said...

Debbie,
My prayers are with Leila and her family.
Hugs,
Donna

Bernie said...

So sorry to read of Leila's passing. May she rest in peace, no more pain and suffering. I will pray for her family.....:-)Hugs

Babbs said...

So sorry for your loss Debbie, and praying for all that are left behind. Angels are rejoicing in heaven as another one is welcomed home. I believe the comfort will come from knowing she and Amy are once again reunited. Love and Hugs.

Darling Debbie, I wish I could comfort you better than this. Words always sound so powerless when somebody you love leavs.I am sorry that you have to go through the pain of loss. I do not know if it would make any sense to you, but when I was 16 I went through the terrible surgery. It was appendix, unfortunately I was infected during surgery and spent next several month in and out of operating room, living with terrible pain. I had experienced clinical death and remeber vividly what my body was going through those few moments. There was no tunnel with the light, but there was such a overwhelming joy and feeling of happiness - it was indescribable. It felt so free of pain and misery, I did not want to come back. And so I know that your loved once are safe...My thought are with you and with the family.

Dear Debbie, We will all continue to pray for a cure. The warmth radiating from the love in your post will keep us warm this winter day. *hugs*

Hi Debbie: Thank you for your sweet comments on my butterfly doll. I did cut out two patterns when I made this one for Donna. It is still sitting in a pile on my table but will one day become a beautiful butterfly as did this one.

I am so sorry for your loss of this beautiful lady and your daughter! My heart aches for you and their families...I had to hold back the tears just a bit ago.

You can find this butterfly doll pattern if you google moonchild's primitives. She has a website. As I said in my post, I did do her face differently though. I may take the face I designed and put it on another self designed body to sell as a pattern in the near future for those who love butterflies too. I'd love to see what you make....and please open that sewing machine box...read all the instructions first though....lol.

I am so sorry for this loss of a beautiful soul. Each day is a blessing and I am learning to recognize that more and more. I do pray for this family and all those who love her.

Nezzy said...

I'm so sorry, my heart and prayers are with Lelia's dear family. My mind goes to a picture of these two beautiful gals dancin' with Jesus just havin' a grand reunion.

Take care sweetie, I know this must of been heart-wrenching for you.

God bless you!

Oh Debbie, I came by to thank you for all your wonderful comments and found that you had to say good bye to your friend today. God and time are the only things that can make your broken heart whole again, with a little piece missing, and I know you know where she is and that she is ok. I think the hardest part is the ones left here missing the one in Christ's arms. She is new, complete and with no pain or worry. Her trials are over and this is going to a big one for the ones who loved her here.
You have been on this road before and you and her family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I will put your names in my God Box.
You know to make it through, you must rest in God's arms every chance you get and KNOW He is in control.
Hugs and ever praying- Tete

Mya said...

Debbie, I know Leila's family is grieving, and I know you are too. Another death might bring back all the pain you have already felt, so I am glad that you do know that both your beloved Amy, and your friend Leila have just gone home before others.
Prayers to all.

Dear Debbie, I stopped by to see how are you doing. I hope you are ok...I think that you are amazingly storng and besutiul, very special person and I am very happy I came across you in the wonderful land of Blogosphere. :-) Sending you many kind wishes from New York.:-)

(Queenmothermamaw) Peggy said...

Dear Debbie thanks so much for stopping by and your kind words on my diabetic post. I feel kind of silly being worried when so many folks already deal with this every day. I am going to do fine. I am doing my reading and checking BS and eating right is not too bad. Thanks for being my blogger friend dear one.

How very sad Debbie.......for God to once again take such a young life......but he must have felt her earthly work was done and needed her more in heaven.....but so sad for the grieving friends and family left behind... I can't imagine the pain it caused you in remembering much happier times with Amy and Leila.....but I"m sure they have shown the heavens a style like never seen before.....(((HUGS))) Lynn
