Freeper prayer request for Ernest_at_the_Beach (Update: His wife has since passed away)
August 28, 2003

Posted on 08/28/2003 4:56:10 PM PDT by Ragtime Cowgirl

Dear Freeper prayer warriors, please keep Ernest_at_the_Beach and his wife in your prayers.

From Ernest_at_the_Beach | 08/28/2003:

Just to let you know that my wife (Kathy ) is now in her final days. Her pain in the last few months from the cancer was constant and unrelenting .

The last several months had been very difficult as she was unable to eat well and not able to eat at all for the last several weeks.

God will be merciful soon and relieve her of the misery of the dreaded disease!

Prayers would be appreciated!

It's beautiful.

You and your Kathy obviously touched a lot of lives.
Wishing you and your family peaceful nights and days filled with joyful memories.

My condolences FReeper friend, but I want to comment on your obviously loving marriage - you cared for your wife and helped ease her pain until the end - now she is in God's embrace. My prayers for you and your family's healing.

The Rose
by Bette Midler

Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed,
Some say love, it is a razor
That leads your soul to bleed,
Some say love, it is a hunger
An endless aching need,
I say love, it is a flower
And you, its only seed.
It's the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance.
It's the dream afraid of waking
That never takes a chance.
It's the one who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give,
And the soul afraid of dying
That never learns to live.

And the rest of the song:

When the night has been too lonely,
And the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter;
Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed that with the Son's love
In the spring becomes the rose.

Thank you for Ernest's message. It must be a difficult time and understandably overwhelming to try and go forward.
Ernest, you and your family are in our thoughts. Hope when the time is right, we will hear from you again.

I have read your posts over the years and I know you are a serious, level headed human being. Personal pain is just that, personal. Nobody can live through it for you. If it was pleasant it would not be painful. I offer my support and my prayers. It is not enough but nothing would be. Keep your chin up and your family moving forward. Accept the love that many FReepers have expressed and tend to your own needs.

May God comfort you through this time of saddness Earnest. Keeping you in my Prayers.

I'm sorry for the loss of your wife. I know dealing with Cancer through all its stages is one of the toughest things a family can go through . Maybe you can feel some peace from knowing that she has been set free from her hurting body and has been restored to perfection with our Holy Father in Heaven.

Again- God Bless and comfort you.

I'm sorry, I'm not sure who wrote this poem. It was sent to me 2 years ago when I lost my fiance in an accident 2 months before our wedding date.

I just thought I would pass it on..
