A Letter From Heaven – Ruth Ann Mahaffey

A warm tribute to the family and friends of those on board flights MH370, MH17 and QZ8501.

To my dearest family, some things I’d like to say.
But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I’m writing this from heaven.
Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there’s no more tears of sadness;
Here, is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I’m out of sight.
Remember that I’m with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through.
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, I welcome you.
It’s good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they’ll be here later on.

I need you here so badly, you are part of my plan.
There is so much that we can do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night the days chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you….in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years.
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you, you wouldn’t understand.

But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over.
I’m closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I’d like it for you too;
That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who is in sorrow and pain;
Then you can say to God at night….My day was not in vain.
And now I’m contented… that my life was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low;
Just lend a hand to pick them up, as on your way you go.

When you’re walking down the street and you’ve got me on your mind;
I’m walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when its time for you to go…from that body to be free.
Remember you’re not going…you’re coming here to me.

Quote of the day – Carl Sagan

Dedicated to finding the truth about MH370

Dedicated to finding the truth about MH370

“Finding the occasional straw of truth awash in a great ocean of confusion and bamboozle requires intelligence, vigilance, dedication and courage. But if we don’t practice these tough habits of thought, we cannot hope to solve the truly serious problems that face us – and we risk becoming a nation of suckers, up for grabs by the next charlatan who comes along.”

Why things happen as they do

'Thoughts & prayers for MH370"

“Heartfelt thoughts & prayers for MH370”

Why things happen as they do
we do not always know,
And we cannot always fathom
why our spirits sink so low
We flounder in our dark distress;
we are wavering and unstable,
But when we’re most inadequate,
the Lord God’s always able –
For though we are incapable,
God’s powerful and great,
And there’s no darkness of the mind
God cannot penetrate…
And while he may not instantly
unravel all the strands
Of the tangled thoughts that trouble us,
He completely understands –
And in His time, if we have faith,
He will gradually restore
The brightness to our spirits
that we have been longing for…
So remember there’s no cloud too dark
For God’s light to penetrate
If we keep on believing
And have faith enough to wait.
