The Faces We Wear, The Ones we Miss

We were driving to do our taxes yesterday, the sky was blue with white clouds big white clouds, the ones we can make them look like bears, dogs, or what ever we can make those big fluffy cloulds looks like.  I remember las May when we lost our beloved 7 1/2 year old cocker spaniel, I would look at the clouds to look for Zoey,  Someimtes the clouds would do just that, Zoey laying on her back, feet in the air,  Zoey laying on the bed happy and content.  Do the clouds really look that way or is that just what we want them to look like so that we can see our beloved one in the clouds.
As we continue to drive to town, between the big white beautiful clouds were the colors of the blue sky.  What a beautiful view it is on days like that.
As I continued to stare into the way blue yonder of the sky, I wondered, if only we could see way past the clouds, ways past the blue skies to see a peak to where our loved one are and what they are doing.  Would that glimpse  give us a feeling of peace, seeing the joy on their faces.  Seeing they are happy would that help take some of the sadness away.  We all know our children are in Heaven, happy, healthy,and strong, but what if we could just have a small view of our children in Heaven.
If we could just see that view of our children in Heaven,  then maybe those looks on our faces would be happy faces just one more time in our lifetime to see our children laughing, happy, and no more pain.  What a gift that would.
So as I am looking into the sky, seeing the Big White Clouds and the Beautiful Blue sky, I am going to keep looking to see maybe just maybe way up there high above the moon, I'll get to see my Kenny, and I will see him happy, healthy and smiling and singing the glories of our God above.  I wish this for all of you too!!!!

How beautiful honey. I do the same thing - look for Shaun in the clouds. I try to envision him everywhere - especially the places I always saw him at - it helps - it makes me feel better when I take time to do that. It\'s almost like being with him again.
Praying for you and wishing you a peaceful weekend.

I can picture the sky as you described it as you were driving to your destination. A beautiful day for cloud gazing. I have not seen my daughter\'s face in the clouds, but my husband did shortly after her passing. What a beautiful sight that must have been. Here\'s wishing we all see our children\'s happy faces in the clouds at one time or another. That was a lovely journal. Thank you.

Shortly after we lost Mike, I had a dream that he was sitting on a fluffy white cloud, typing on a computer. He had sent me an email from Heaven that said something about how I shouldn\'t feel so depressed about his death because, really, he was just fine. I asked him how he could send me an email from Heaven?

\"Easy,\" he said. \" I think the thought , and God pushes the send button.\"

I felt that was not only a dream, but a pretty distinct message--maybe not just from Mike, but from God, too!

Thank you for a journal full of hope today! Love, Cherie

What a beautiful vision. If only we knew.... If we knew with certainty we wouldn\'t need faith. So we hold on to that faith and we do know in our hearts that they are safe, happy, smiling and most of all waiting for us. Love to you. Robin

A few years ago I was flying home from Fl and being up in the sky I knew I was close to my son. I felt him all around me. Hugs, Inga
