  2. after I lost my mom I took my dad on a tour of old missions so we could light a candle for her...they loved the old missions. I still light a candle for them both wherever I go.
    This is a lovely sanctuary..where is it located?
    Take care and Blessings to you. jj

  4. That's a beautiful sanctuary & it's a comforting ritual, I light candles for Matthew almost every day.

  5. Candles and stars must surely be pinpricks of heaven streaming down. One star in the nightsky makes me smile; one candle flame warms up a room.

    You are in my prayers and thoughts so often lately. When a loved one passes over to Heaven there is a place left empty . . . it must be filled. Candles, memories, tears, and the last touch take over the place. It is not a "lonely" place per se, but it is a place we alone must fill.

    I have spent 5 years dealing with the empty place my son's death left -- it is such a beautiful place in my life (he made me so much more than I ever imagined), but still I feel the loss. I accept his death, I rejoice that he is with Jesus at the bridal supper, and I know that I will be reunited at that very table one day in the future . . . but for today I am drawn to thoughts of candles, and starlight, and butterflies that dance in the gardens. Love never dies . . .

    Be well and at peace, my sweet, sweet friend. I am praying alongside you and I am dancing in the glow of years of candles. And it feels good to remember and to love and to be here in this moment.
