I will miss Stephen forever... 

This video is really beautiful, and I think that everyone should check it out. It's one of the Boyzone songs, called Better. Seeing it made me realize just how much I really loved Stephen, and just how amazingly brave and beautiful he is; and just how much his bandmates Ronan, Keith, Shane and Mikey loved him and respected him in every aspect. Kudos to you boys, you are amazing.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.

~ Happy birthday my Angel... ~






It's hard to find words today. It's hard to find the words since January, since you left me with a broken heart.
I still can't believe you're gone. But you are.
Gone too soon my Angel, too soon.

Today would've been your 29th birthday.
You'd be smiling, like always, brightening up everyone's day. Brightening up my day.

It hurts to wake up every morning and realize that January 22 wasn't a lie.
I just want you to know that I love you, I always will.
I miss you, and always will.
Rest in peace my Angel, and watch over me.

~ 3 Doors down - "Here without you" ~

A hundred days have made me older
Since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder
And I don't think I can look at this the same
But all the miles that separate
Disappear now when I'm dreaming of your face

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight it's only you and me

The miles just keep rollin'
As the people leave their way to say hello
I've heard this life is overrated
But I hope that it gets better as we go

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl its only you and me

Everything I know, and anywhere I go
It gets hard but it wont take away my love
And when the last one falls
When it's all said and done
It gets hard but it wont take away my love

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl its only you and me

~ Holy Saturday ~
&
~ Heath ~
Holy Saturday (Sabbato Sancto) is the day after Good Friday. It is the day before Easter and the last day of the Holy Week, in which christians prepare for Easter.

On this day one commemorates the time that the dead body of Jesus Christ is in the grave. His soul however, was in paradise: "Today shalt thou be with me in paradise" (Luke 23:43b, KJV).

The apostle Peter describes in 1 Peter 3:19-20a that Jesus Christ revealed Himself to the spirits in the hell to show His triumph: "By [his death] also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison. Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing." (KJV). While interpretations of this text differ, many take it to be a reference to the doctrine that Jesus descended to the dead after his death and before his resurrection.

Holy Saturday is sometimes called Easter Eve or Easter Even, especially by Anglicans, Low Saturday. In the Philippines this day bears the name Black Saturday or Sábado de Gloria. On the other hand, in the Czech Republic and Slovakia it is called White Saturday. In Dutch it is known as Silent Saturday (Stille Zaterdag). Holy Saturday is also often incorrectly called Easter Saturday, a term that properly refers to the following Saturday.

 

In Roman Catholic Churches, the sanctuary is stripped completely bare while the administration of the sacraments is severely limited. Holy Communion is given only as Viaticum. All Masses are strictly prohibited. No Mass at all appears in the liturgy for this day. Many of the churches of the Anglican Communion and the United Methodist Church observe most of the same; their altars may be covered in black instead of being stripped.

In some Anglican churches, including the Episcopal Church in the United States, provision is made for a simple liturgy of the word on this day, with readings commemorating the burial of Christ.

Liturgically speaking, Holy Saturday lasts until dusk, after which the Easter Vigil is celebrated, marking the official start of the Easter season. In Roman Catholic observance, during the "Gloria" of the Mass (which is the first Mass since that of Holy Thursday), the church statues and icons, in places where they are covered with purple veils during Passiontide, are dramatically unveiled.


2 months ago on this day my heart broke again.
Handsome, sweet, talented and young man was found dead in his apartment at the age of 28.
He was one of the best young Hollywood actors in my opinion, Heath Ledger.
Heath, I miss you and you will always be in my thoughts, prayers and in my heart.
I hope you found your peace Angel.

~ I miss you Granny... ~
&
~ Good Friday ~
Today is the the day when I lost my grandma... exactly 2 years ago.
Another loss in my life, the loss I'm still dealing with.
It's not easy, and it still hurts badly.
I miss her every single day.
I think about her every single day.
I love her more and more every single day.

A grandmother is a remarkable woman.
She's a wonderful combination of
warmth and kindness, laughter and love.
She overlooks our faults, encourages our dreams
and praises our every success.
~*~
A grandmother has the wisdom of a teacher,
the sincerity of a true friend
and
the tenderness of a mother.
She's someone we admire, respect and love very much.
~*~
A grandmother will always have a cherished
place in our memories
and in our hearts.
She's someone for whom we want every happiness
in return for the joy she always brings.
~*~
A grandmother is all the dear
and precious things in life
when she's a grandmother like you.
~ Good Friday ~
Good Friday, also called Holy Friday or Great Friday, is the Friday preceding Easter Sunday. It commemorates the crucifixion and death of Jesus at Calvary.

Jesus, having been arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane by the Temple Guards through the guidance of Judas Iscariot, is brought to the house of Annas, who is father-in-law of the current high priest, Caiaphas. Judas received money for betraying Jesus, and so that the guards knew who to arrest, Judas kissed Jesus, and the guards knew that whoever Judas kissed, that would be Jesus. There he is interrogated with little result, and sent bound to Caiaphas the high priest, where the Sanhedron had assembled (John 18:1-24).

Conflicting testimony against Jesus is brought forth by many witnesses, to which Jesus answers nothing. Finally the high priest adjures Jesus to respond under solemn oath, saying "I adjure you, by the Living God, to tell us, are you the Anointed One, the Son of God?" Jesus testifies in the affirmative, "You have said it, and in time you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Almighty, coming on the clouds of Heaven." The high priest condemns Jesus for blasphemy, and the Sanhedron concurs with a sentence of death (Matthew 26:57-66). Peter also denies Jesus three times during the interrogations. Jesus already knew that Peter would deny him three times.

In the morning, the whole assembly brings Jesus to the Roman governor Pontius Pilate, under charges of subverting the nation, opposing taxes to Caesar, and making himself a king (Luke 23:1-2). Pilate authorizes the Jewish leaders to judge Jesus according to their own Law and execute sentencing, however the Jewish leaders reply that they are not allowed by the Romans to carry out a sentence of death (John 18:31).

Pilate questions Jesus, and tells the assembly that there is no basis for sentencing. Upon learning that Jesus is from Galilee, Pilate refers the case to the ruler of Galilee, King Herod, who was in Jerusalem for the Passover Feast. Herod questions Jesus but receives no answer; Herod sends Jesus back to Pilate. Pilate tells the assembly that neither he nor Herod have found guilt in Jesus; Pilate resolves to have Jesus whipped and released (Luke 23:3-16).

It was a custom during the feast of Passover for the Romans to release one prisoner as requested by the Jews. Pilate asks the crowd who they would like to be released. Under the guidance of the chief priests, the crowd asks for Barabbas, who had been imprisoned for committing murder during an insurrection. Pilate asks what they would have him do with Jesus, and they demand, "Crucify him" (Mark 15:6-14). Pilate's wife had seen Jesus in a dream earlier that day; she forewarns Pilate to "have nothing to do with this righteous man" (Matthew 27:19).

Pilate has Jesus flogged, then brings him out to the crowd to release him. The chief priests inform Pilate of a new charge, demanding Jesus be sentenced to death "because he claimed to be God's son." This possibility filled Pilate with fear, and he brought Jesus back inside the palace and demanded to know from where he came (John 19:1-9).

Coming before the crowd one last time, Pilate declares Jesus innocent, washing his own hands in water to show he has no part in this condemnation. Nevertheless, Pilate hands Jesus over to be crucified in order to forestall a riot (Matthew 27:24-26). The sentence written is "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews." Jesus carries his cross to the site of execution, called the place of the Skull, or "Golgotha" in Hebrew and "Calvary" in Latin. There he is crucified along with two criminals (John 19:17-22).

Jesus agonizes on the cross for three hours while the sun is darkened. With a loud cry, Jesus gives up his spirit. There is an earthquake, tombs break open, and the curtain in the Temple is torn from top to bottom. The centurion on guard at the site of crucifixion declares, "Truly this was God's Son!" (Matthew 27:45-54)

Joseph of Arimathea, a member of the Sanhedrin and secret follower of Jesus, who had not consented to his condemnation, goes to Pilate to request the body of Jesus (Luke 23:50-52). Pilate asks confirmation from the centurion whether Jesus is dead (Mark 15:44). A soldier pierced the side of Jesus with a lance causing blood and water to flow out (John 19:34), and the centurian informs Pilate that Jesus is dead (Mark 15:45).

Joseph of Arimathea takes the body of Jesus, wraps it in a clean linen shroud, and places it in his own new tomb that had been carved in the rock (Matthew 27:59-60) in a garden near the site of crucifixion. Another secret follower of Jesus and member of the Sanhedrin named Nicodemus (John 3:1) also came bringing 75 pounds of myrrh and aloes, and places them in the linen with the body of Jesus, according to Jewish burial customs (John 19:39-40). They rolled a large rock over the entrance of the tomb (Matthew 27:60). Then they returned home and rested, because at sunset began the Sabbath (Luke 23:54-56).

On the third day, Sunday, which is now known as Easter Sunday, Jesus rose from the dead.

~ A month without you... ~

Death.
A word so simple, an action so painful.
We try not to think about it, put it's happening. Every minute, every hour of every single day, all over the world.
It's hard to deal with it. But we must deal with it.

Exactly one month ago, a celebrity death brought me to tears, and made me feel all the feelings I thought I won't feel for a while again.
The tears, the pain, the reality of life that will eventually come to all of us.
Heath died and my heart broke.
At one moment I was a happy, smiling girl, and in the other, upon seeing the news, I couldn't help myself but cry the pain out.
I never really saw him, needless to say that I didn't know him, but he was a big part of my life. From the moment I saw him in "10 things I hate about you" I knew that he's gonna make it big.
And he did it.
With each new role he was amazing me and everyone else.
And now, he's not here to show us all the emotions he still had, the talent that was shining in and out of his being, that wonderful smile that could make the world go round...
Simply, there was one and only Heath Ledger, a guy who wasn't afraid of taking the role of gay cowboy Ennis del Mar in "Brokeback mountain", a guy who is probably going to be a better Joker than Jack Nicholson in "The Dark Knight", a guy who was not afraid to be himself in every single moment of his life.

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
Theres always one reason
To feel not good enough
And its hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins
Let me be empty
And weightless and maybe
Ill find some peace tonight

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
Youre in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
Theres vultures and thieves at your back
And the storm keeps on twisting
You keep on building the lie
That you make up for all that you lack
It dont make no difference
Escaping one last time
Its easier to believe in this sweet madness oh
This glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
Youre in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there
Youre in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here
I know that you're in a better place, not wanting anyone to be sad or crying upon your leave, but I can't help it.
Rest in peace Angel, and we will see each other one day, I know it.
Untill then, watch over me and all those who loved you.
I will never forget you.
