Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Queen of Angels

VELÁZQUEZ, Diego Rodriguez de Silva y
The Coronation of the Virgin

Song of Farewell

Saints of God, come to his aid! 
Hasten to meet him, angels of the Lord! 
Receive his soul and present him to God the Most High.

May Christ, who called you, take you to himself;
may angels lead you to the bosom of Abraham. 
Receive his soul and present him to God the Most High. 

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, 
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
Receive his soul and present him to God the Most High.


Today, my husband, his brothers, and mother said goodbye to their beloved father, husband. Requiescat in pace, Paul.


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you all. <3

  2. So sorry, dear friend. Continued prayers for him and your family.

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss, Barbara. May he rest in peace! Hugs.

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss. Praying for you and your family. ~ Rosemary

  5. My prayers to you and yours at this difficult time. --Linda

  6. I am so sorry for your loss. It seems like it went so fast. Prayers for all during this sad, difficult time.
    But congratulations to the 'two lovebirds'! How exciting and wonderful! That is so sweet about him wanting his grandpa to know. Good for you for planning a grand party.
    There's quite a poignancy to the juxtaposition of the two events. Such is life.
    God bless you all.


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
