** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

Heaven Just Got
A Little Brighter

Jewell Mae O'Neal Nation
January 1, 1915 - June 29, 2010

Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
~ Matthew 5:4

Yesterday morning, at 10:55, Granny Jewell went on to Heaven to be with the Lord and with Papa Andrew. Although I am rejoicing in the fact that she is now with them and is no longer suffering, I am profoundly sad that she is gone. I knew it was going to be hard but I did not anticipate exactly how hard.

Thanks so much for the many, many prayers and wonderful words of encouragement I have received over the last week or so. They are appreciated more than you can possibly know. I know it is going to take some time for our entire family to grieve and then begin to heal. Please continue to pray for us as we begin that process.

So sorry to hear this. Even though we know the person is okay and better it is so hard when they are not physically here. Take your time to heal. Remember her sweet spirit always. She looks like she was a wonderful lady.

My dad passed away January 2010.
I am pleased to remember that the last time I saw him we danced together. But I do find myself in tears, at times in the most unexpected moments.
God Bless

I'm so very sorry Teresa. I wish I had the right words to say to comfort you. I'm praying for you and your family. Love, Kelly

I am so sorry about your grandmother, but so happy for her at the same time! I know that with God, death is such a bittersweet experience. But I must say, I think it is so wonderful that your grandmother lived as long as she did & that your daughters got to know her. I unfortunately lost 3 of my 4 grandparents before I even got married, so my daughter has only met my grandfather. I am really cherishing the time my grandfather is getting to spend with her. After so much loss, it seems like such a blessing that she will get to know him.

I am praying for you & your family!

I am very sorry for your loss. I hope you will indeed find the comfort you and your family need to heal. Through the support you have in each other and knowing the thoughts and prayers of others are with you.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know you can take comfort in her being with home, but I also understand the missing. Take care. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.

Following from Friendly Friday :)

Thank you for stoppong by my blog. I am so sorry to hear your granny passed away. I was looking at your photos, and for 95, she looked amazing! She looks like my grandmother, and she is only in her 70's. I know you will miss her, and the world lost another great soul, but now she is in heaven and God is watching her.
I will pray for you and your family. And again, I am sorry for your loss. ::Kristin::
P.S. Your blog looks great-- can't wait to read more.

Came by way of Kelly@Septembermom. I just wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I too just lost my grandmother two weeks ago, and I understand how painful that loss can be. Praying for you that each day gets better than the day before.

Heather said...

I am so sorry! It's always hard to lose someone we love even when it know that it eases their pain. (((hugs))) Stopping by from SITS to send some love your way.
