When the Lord Calls a Loved One Home

IMG_0403

Grief is so weird, don’t you think? Do you ever feel like you don’t know what to do?  Seriously, I always feel this way.  The Lord called My Uncle Larry home a couple weeks ago.  Even though you know it’s coming, you just can’t prepare yourself for it.  I’m so so sad and will miss him so much.  I know he’s in a better place and lean on that knowledge to help me get through my grief. I admire the way my friends seem to be able to deal with it.  They  know just what to do and say.  Whatever it is, from making meals, offering to help with a certain need or just being there for that person. I wish I could be more like that. I feel like I never know what to do.  I find myself staying home to grieve alone. What I want to do so badly is to go visit them and be there for them.  But I’m so scared of bothering them, or being in the way, or not having the right words to say.  So I started thinking what I’d want If I were faced with the same situation.  I thought I’d want to be surrounded by my loved ones.

So I wanted to craft something that was meaningful to me, that I think my Aunt would like.  I’m going to take it over to the house just to let them know how much I love them.

I found a saying and printed it off.  It says: “Because someone we love is in heaven… there’s a little bit of heaven in our home.”  I then cut and pasted it on chip board.

 On pinterest, I found the cutest tutorial on these coffee filter angel wings. You can find the link here: thoughtsfromalice.com

I tied the sign with ribbon onto the wings.

In loving memory of Uncle Larry, I love you! Your Warm smile and big hugs will be missed!

Those we love don’t go away,

They walk beside us everyday…

Unseen, unheard, but alway near,

Still loved, still missed and very dear.   Author Unknown
