and don't we all need a place to think and just 'BE'.
Love like you've never been hurt,
Dance like no one's watching,
Sing like no one can hear you.

Belle, very true words indeed, I'm not a very religious person, nor in fact, am I even that good a one at that, but I have been Blessed with many friends from all walks in life.  One Lady who attended Her own Church on a regular basis on the Shankill Road, asked me some years back, to bring her to Clonard Novena, as she had heard so much about the Power of the Prayers said there and had a personnel intention of her own she wanted the Prayers for.  I thought, "Well, sure if you want me too, I will!" She never got the outcome of her intentions as she wanted but, what happened, She said was even greater than she expected. Sadly this Lady passed away just over a year ago, and I was proud to do the Novena last year simply to say Thanks, for a true Lady and a having had such a true friend in My life.  I know, without a doubt, if there is a Heaven, she must be in it now.

sally anne, what a beautful story, thanks for that. i am a great believer if HE doesn't give your answer one way you'll get it another and i pray your friend is in heaven. i really dont believe your religion has got much to do with it, faith has and the desire to do the best you can for yourself and others. and as for you not being a good person, of course you are! look what you did for your friend. i'm sure that everyday you do something, however small, that brightens the world of someone. look how powerful your story is :air_kiss: :air_kiss:

Lilikins,

Bob, I'll be paying a visit to the Novena myself this year in memory of my aunt...I'll light a candle for you.
Memories they can't be bought,they cant be won at carnivals for free,it took me years to get those souvenirs and I don't know how they slipped away fr
