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!

It is not death to die -
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.

How lovely to find hearts in such unusual places. It's a sign, you know.

Blessed Serendipity said...

Diana, Every time you see a heart you must feel like your brother is smiling and loving you right at that very moment. How very special. I am so sorry for your loss and I know that you must be missing him. Enjoy these special signs of love sent just for you. XO Danielle

Dewena Callis said...

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.

Betsy@ coastal-colors said...

Oh, Diana, I love the hearts that God has His hand in! Wow! Hugs to you, my friend! I know how difficult this time is! God has you in His loving arms!

It's hard to believe that it's been nearly four months. The heart shaped rock is amazing. I don't think we ever really "get over" our losses, we just learn to deal with them. Bless you, my sweet friend!

You have your signs...

Melanie said...

So deeply sorry for your loss, no words to express my feelings. Hugs to you. Glad you got to see those hearts!!

Hope Filled Living said...

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

Gretchen said...

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.

Cristina Garay said...

I do believe in signs too, Diana. He's with you! Beautiful hearts.
Hugs,
Cristina

Lauren Zuzic said...

Diana, I know your heart is still hurting over the loss of your brother. I love my brother and we are so close, it would take a long time for that hurt to heal. Hugs to you.

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

I believe God speaks through images...for you it's hearts. Such a sweet reminder.

Junkchiccottage said...

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.
Kris

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

Definitely a sign, Diana.
It's hard being so far away...
This was my first Mother's Day without Mom, and now Father's Day next....it's not easy.
