Heart To God

My brother passed over
four months ago this week.
Since then I have seen hearts everywhere,

In rocks and stonesFile:Heart-shaped stone.JPG
Look closely at the 
sand trap in the golf course.
I think God might have had
a hand in this one.
I wondered why I was seeing hearts
everywhere...but I do believe in signs.

My heart lies somewhere in
the hills of Pennsylvania today...
my sister-in-law posted this and I
saw my brother's gravestone
for the first time.
Another heart to God...
way too soon...
way too soon.

Back tomorrow morning!

    To leave this earth
    It means he is home with God

    Jesus ,Thou Prince of Life
    Thy chosen cannot die
    They conqueer to be with him.

    So do not weep my dear
    You will see him again
    That is the promise
    to you from they Lord God.

  35. I remember when Mary (Hope Filled Living) said she stepped out of the car and there was a heart shaped rock right in front of her. I know God let's us see these reminders to comfort us. I know your brother is never far from your heart.

  49. Hi Diana,
    I'm so sorry for your loss. I have thought about your often and the loss of your brother, and say a prayer each time you come to mind. I can't imagine the pain of losing a sibling. But, like you...I too, believe in signs. What a beautiful sign-to see hearts everywhere.
    My mother just lost her sister--my Auntie and we had the funeral on Friday. My mother is not taking it well.
    May time gradually smooth away your pain, like it has gently worn the beautiful rocks you have discovered.
    Hugs,
    Mary

  50. Missing him probably won't get easier but finding happy things that remind you of him will. I lost my baby brother to melanoma 7 years ago and I'm constantly reminded of him.

  57. Hi Diana,
    I lost a brother too. It was too soon so I can relate to this post. These hearts are a sign. Love this. Hope that gives you comfort to know he is up there and giving you a sign he is in a great place. Sorry for your loss.

  58. Maybe those heart sightings are your brother letting you know he is ok and is thinking about you. Beautiful headstone with the hearts! My brother passed in 1999. He was only 42! I miss him all the time. Many hugs to you, Diana! Take care, Leena
