  1. I understand kwik, and I'm glad she's in Heaven, but I want my 'baby girl' back with me. If only I could turn back time, I would have told her that the store run could have waited until the next day. I didn't. You always will be "Mom 2" to her. She loved you so much.
  2. Hello Friends, This is really hard for me to write. I'm having a difficult time holding it together. I just wanted to tell you what Jacie was like. She was a very loving young lady who loved life. She would bend over backwards to help anyone she could. I think that's the way God made her. When she told me that she was going to come here to help me recover from my my knee surgery, I told her that I didn't want her to, because she would be missing so many of her college classes that she would have to take at least one extra semester to get the credits she needed to graduate. She told me that it was her decision, and that was the end of the discussion . After a great deal of researching, She chose to major in Linguistics, with a minor in Arabic. That was her goal. She had researched the major and minor a great deal. The decision was based on the fact that she wanted to work for our government, (The USA) and be a translator in a language that would be very useful for the USA. She knew it would be a challenge, but a challenge she was ready to take on, just like she did with everything else she she ever did. That was what she wanted; nothing more, nothing less. She was in her third year of college. On the night she died, she had just logged off of Worthy and realized that she needed to go to the store to get a few things. Two officers were at my door sometime later, telling me that my daughter had been in a car accident, and that they would take me to the hospital. As more of the facts came out, I found out that her car had been "T-boned" on her side by a driver who ran a red light. The speed of his vehicle was estimated to be about 40 mph. The officers said she never had a chance, and in all reality, never saw what hit her. The next day, I told them that I wanted to see her car and get her things out of it. They told me No, but I was persistent. When I saw her car, I knew she never had a chance, it was crushed. There was only one thing I really wanted out of her car, that was a gold necklace with a cross on it. She always had it hanging from her rear-view mirror. It hasn't been found. The other driver didn't suffer any injuries, his airbag had saved his life. He had been removed from the scene in handcuffs. She would have turned 25 on May 2. Whenever any of us would ever leave the house, we never said "Good bye." We always said "Be safe, see you later and I love you." Her final words to me that night were, "I love you too Mom." She would want everyone to celebrate her life, and to praise God that's she's in Heaven. Jacie, I love you bigger than the sky above. I'll see you later.
  3. I'm sorry about your loss. RIP Jacie.

      My condolences,Kate. We know that she is in a better place now.

      1 Thessalonian 4:13-14   Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

      Romans 14:8  If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord

      See you in heaven Jacie.

  4. You're in my prayers Beloved Sister "Kate"....keep up the good work,God IS!!!!!

  5. I'm sorry I was rude to you when you asked how things are going KPaulG. I feel such anger at what happened, but there was no excuse for my unkind reply to you. I need to let go and let God. God Bless.
  6. How's everything going now? We are still grieving, in shock, and angry at this senseless killing. All of us are moving through the stages of grieving. Seriously, how would it be going for you right now? I'm still full of anger that I can't seem to let go.
  7. I probably could have asked for prayers for a lot lately, so much is happening in my life, but when something like this happens, it hit harder than anything. Years ago, I was a Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technician. A friend of mine was recently killed in the line of duty. She left behind a loving husband and children. Please pray for comfort for her family and friends as they try to deal with this tragedy. Law enforcement officials have charged the person responsible for the incident with murder. She was doing her job, trying to save a life, only to lose hers. Once an E.M.T., always an E.M.T. Any kind of law enforcement and rescue personnel face risks in their line of duty. I was put in a few dangerous positions, but I made it through. If anyone here has face book, please feel free to write a note of comfort for her family on my post. That photo is set to public. It's a darkened photo with a black ribbon around it. It's the Star of Life, a symbol for E.M.Ts. My facebook name is Kate Marie Anderson. Thank you so much and God Bless.
  8. It isn't wrong to ask others to pray for you. There have been times when I have prayed for myself and what I'm trying to deal with, and have also asked others to pray for me. Anxiety can be very overwhelming for many, especially when you're alone. In all reality, God is always with you. There is power in prayer. I have a prayer list, I will add you to it. We all need help sometimes. God Bless, Kate
  9. I understand what you are saying, I really do.
  10. Hello and welcome to Worthy Lindsey.
  11. Praying for you and also praying that your friend turns to the Lord.
  12. I started this topic because there is so much violence in the world today that we don't hear much about real kindness. News is full of violence. I'm tired of the violence, but I don't know that it's going to stop soon, so here goes. First, I want to tell you something that happened to me a while back. I live in an apartment building for the elderly and/or disabled. The elderly man who lives right above me is a very kind person, the type of person who would "give you the shirt off his back." One day, I was just sitting here and heard a loud thud from above me. Initially, I thought he had just dropped something. Then I had a strong feeling that I should go check on him. I went upstairs and knocked on his door, no answer. I pounded on his door, no answer. Then I got scared. I checked his door and it was unlocked. I walked in and he was laying on the floor. I called rescue. A few weeks later I saw him in the hall. He told me that he is a diabetic and had gone into diabetic shock and thanked me for the help. I said "Don't thank me, thank God, because it was a strong feeling that I suddenly had that caused me to go to your apartment." I know where that feeling came from. Granted, this wasn't a random act of kindness, it was God and His love for us. Fast forward to yesterday. My 12 prescriptions are delivered at the end of the month. By the end of the month, I'm broke. Disability doesn't go far. It's great that I can charge them each month. (Very kind of the pharmacy) I usually go about 3-4 days without food at that time. No money=no food. The pharmacy delivery driver commented that I looked more pale than I usually do. I told her something that she didn't know, that I go hungry until my disability check comes in. I was hungry, weak and had a stomach ache from taking my meds on an empty stomach. She gave me my prescriptions and left. About an hour later, she called and asked me to buzz her in. She had gone to the grocery store and gotten enough food for me to last until I can get to the store when my disability check comes. She doesn't want anything in return. I started crying. I never expected that. That was the greatest random act of kindness for me. Anyone else want to share about random acts of kindness? Has anyone you know of ever had a random act of kindness shown to them? Maybe family, friend, neighbor, etc. God Bless all of you.
