The prayer bowl is filled, blessings to all who gather, and those far away today.
Prayers goin up!
Today and always
we remember those who are no longer here,
and those who are!
we hold those who are here with us, and remember the fragility of life,
its rain, the thunder and the remarkable gifts we are blessed with through it all.
I ask you to join me in thought and prayer
for Thomas O’Brien, his beautiful Mom and family
as he now has one foot here, the other on his tiptoes nearing the next place, heavens gate.
We must all be mindful of the pain of loss this young man is feeling, his Mom’s tremedous heartache in hearing and watching his journey;
the losses daily that they both are suffering.
Theirs is a journey that have allowed so many to walk beside them on.
I am honored.
He has been so strong, so kind, so illuminating to so many who now stand for him
in prayer, thoughts, love
that is seldom seen
from ones who know each other much less those who have never met.
Hearts and minds are weeping around the world as they say their good-byes and so longs.
Debbie said that he was getting close, he didn’t want to be alone, the he “stares off into space”.
I think he is seeing someone, and the angels now.
I have not heard today if he is here or is transitioning or has soared on the wings of the Eagle.
I do know he is loved by so many both here and there.
His bravery has inspired and illuminated so very many in their own lives and thoughts of heart and brain and nervous system over time.
He has done so much in a short 21 years from dreams to actions with amazing grace under fire.
SUre HOPE he has those shades on, cos’ I wear mine with the thought of him.. he outshines the sun! Those eyes just touch your soul don’t they? You did an outstanding job Debbie, what a fine young man you have in your arms now soon to be in the arms of the angels…
the fire is burning brightly,
the sage is in the air
for all who gather here
and all in the prayer bowl.
