Stumbled Accross

Shared by Mary Blackwood on November 1, 2017

  While I was deleting some of my old...old.. emails, i stumbled across an email from my niece Robin dated 2011".  As i read the email about my sister Donna for the 1st time til now Novmeber 1, 2017.  I dont know if i was scared to open it or it was just to much for me. Because that was when i found out my husband and i were having our 1st baby.  She was going to be the 1st besides my mom to know our awesome secret, she looked at kids differently than others.
  She took kids in her home like they were her own, know matter their situation.  I really respected her for that. I knew that once I had kids she would be the 1st to drop them off at.  LOL  .. And them clinging to her as a second mom, but thier was a different plan in store, something I would never understand ... But!! I have to respect it.  Questions are silently asked to God, when I look into my oldest eyes.  Why my sister Lord, why in our family?  But I forget, we're know different than anyone else in this world.  My son Trevor reminds me of her so, and how much he would've enjoyed himself going to the Kingdom Hall with his Aunt Donna, or in the yard chasing the Black Rabbits, or throwing pebbles at the Orange Coil Fish that were strangely disappearing and the loose Horeses in the backyard.  I Truly Miss you Big Sis, you are Always in my heart

To a Wonderful Aunt , on her 55th Birthday !!

Oh how I wish you here with me,
To share this wonderful birthday 
A joyous occasion you see.
To share in a very special way.

God was so merciful he gave you life 
and let us borrow you for  a short time ,
but when your season was finished. 
God reached down and picked you from the garden vine

Many Blessing you left behind 
A laugh a grin or two,
So much joy you would bring us 
Thank God for letting us borrow you.

The tears still fall down my our face ,
as tiny reminders we see,
Of the the great times we had when I was growing up

You were that  special Aunt to mean to me.

So rest me dear Aunt rest on ,
No sadness regrets or frowns ,
Just knowing one day we will see you again,
The day we come and get our own heavenly crown.

An Original Poem By Your Niece ,

A letter to Heaven , To: Aunt Donna

Shared by Mr. And Mrs. Floyd And D... on May 22, 2011



“Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in

me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I

have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And when I go and

prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself,

that where I am you may be also. And you know the way where I am

going. Thomas said to Him, ‘Lord, we do not know where you are

going; how can we know the way?’ Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way,

and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me’”

(John 14:1-6).



 I know this  message will reach you in heaven , Rest on my Dear child,  Rest on.....,


LOVING You Always Your NIECE. Dykeba L.Rogers  AND FAMILY

Footprints in the Sand         

 One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.  In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.                       Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,                           other times there were one set of footprints.                                   This bothered me because I noticed                                that during the low periods of my life,                             when I was suffering from                         anguish, sorrow or defeat,                     I could see only one set of footprints.           So I said to the Lord,      "You promised me Lord,         that if I followed you,             you would walk with me always.                   But I have noticed that during                          the most trying periods of my life                                 there have only been one                                       set of footprints in the sand.                                           Why, when I needed you most,                                          you have not been there for me?"                                  The Lord replied,                          "The times when you have                  seen only one set of footprints,          is when I carried you."                                                   Mary Stevenson    Copyright © 1984 Mary Stevenson, from original 1936 text, All rights reserved

Ecclesiastes 3:1-15

 1 To everything there is a season,

      A time for every purpose under heaven:
       2 A time to be born,
And a time to die;
      A time to plant,
And a time to pluck what is planted;
       3 A time to kill,
And a time to heal;
      A time to break down,
And a time to build up;
       4 A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;
      A time to mourn,
And a time to dance;
       5 A time to cast away stones,
And a time to gather stones;
      A time to embrace,
And a time to refrain from embracing;
       6 A time to gain,
And a time to lose;
      A time to keep,
And a time to throw away;
       7 A time to tear,
And a time to sew;
      A time to keep silence,
And a time to speak;
       8 A time to love,
And a time to hate;
      A time of war,
And a time of peace.

 The God-Given Task

 9 What profit has the worker from that in which he labors? 10 I have seen the God-given task with which the sons of men are to be occupied. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.

12 I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives,

13 and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor—it is the gift of God

14 I know that whatever God does,
      It shall be forever.
      Nothing can be added to it,
      And nothing taken from it.
      God does it, that men should fear before Him. 
15 That which is has already been,
      And what is to be has already been;
      And God requires an account of what is past. 


                    All ,  From Your Caring Nephew, Floyd Thomas Rogers Sr.

                       May You Rest In Peace ,In Your New  Eternal  Home

                                     "I    DID   IT  MY   WAY "


And now the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend I'll say it clear
I'll state my case of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Regrets I've had a few
But then again too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes there were times I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out, I faced it all
And I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now as tears subside
I find it all so amusing

To think I did all that
And may I say not in a shy way
Oh no, oh no, not me
I did it my way

For what is a man what has he got
If not himself then he has not
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

Yes it was my way
