March/April 2017 Cast your cares upon the Lord & He will sustain you;... Psalm 55:22 Subscribe to Healing Hearts News!!

...From the Editor

The 84th Psalm has always been a favorite of mine since the first time I ever read it many years ago. The message that, no matter how large or small we feel we are, how important or insignificant we think we are, there is always a place in God’s house for us. This type of welcoming acceptance has been a rare experience for me -- even among members of my family. So, whenever I’m feeling down and rejected by nearly everyone around me, I turn to Psalm 84 to remind myself that what’s going on is just temporary and that God will always be my comfort during difficult times.

I only shared the first four verses of Psalm 84 on the first page of this issue of Healing Heart News. I encourage everyone to look it up in a Bible or search for the text online if you don’t already own a Bible and read it in it’s entirety. Then can decide for yourselves if this is one that would be useful in your “grief toolbox” to help you cope as it has for me.

How lovely is your dwelling place
O Lord Almighty!
My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh
cry out for the living God.
Even the sparrow
has found a home,
and the swallow a nest
for herself where she may have her young --
a place near your alter,
O Lord Almighty,
my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house...

-- Psalm 84:1-4

On another note... I have received a few requests by families to be listed on the Prayer Page and I wanted to let our readers know that the policy is to list families on our mailing list during months of the issues where the birth or death dates occur for each family. If you have ever asked us not to have your family appear, that would be the only reason we would intentionally omit someone & we would need to be notified by email, phone or mail if you have changed your mind & would like your family to appear in future issues of the newsletter. So, no request to appear would be necessary.

Thank you to all who have visited & posted on the Healing Hearts page on Facebook!! We hope that everyone will continue to visit and share their thoughts and memories. For those who have not checked it out -- you can visit the Healing Hearts web site and click on the badge at the bottom of the home page or use the search on Facebook and put in ‘Healing Hearts.’ Feel free to post your thoughts and feelings or pictures of your loved one. We love having the opportunity to put faces to the names and stories of the people on our mailing list.

Emails from Healing Hearts  
Another thought on a different subject, as more families are using e-mail and finding “spam” to be a greater and greater problem, more of us are using filters in order to keep their inboxes uncluttered. I definitely understand the need for this but need to ask a favor. If you are currently receiving your newsletters via e-mail and are using a filtering service, please make sure to include us on your “friends” list so that your newsletter messages won’t be blocked. The e-mail address we have used to send newsletters from is newsletter@healingheart.net. Thanks for your help.
