Shannon Park

Sunday (May 17 2011) my son and I went to Shannon Park and installed this sign. The park was named after my wife Shannon who died from a battle against breast cancer. But did she really loose that battle? She died on a Holy day that we keep called the Feast of Trumpets. She actually told a few of us shortly after being diagnosed that she did not want to die  (naturally as who does) but if she did die that she wanted it to be on the Feast of Trumpets as it pictures the resurrection spoken of in  1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (King James Version) It is so amazing and miraculous that she died on that very day! Another amazing theme that my family had been talking about around this time was the miracle of butterfly's. How they start off as a lowly caterpillar but through the stages of metamorphosis they turn into a beautiful butterfly. Just as we are puny humans with such an amazing potential! My wife is in her cocoon stage waiting to be raised  up as a beautiful Spirit Being to meet Christ at that final Trumpet Blast! Did she loose the battle against breast cancer? The Feast of Trumpets is a Holly day that also pictures WAR. As the armies of the world will actually join forces to fight Christ at His return, it will be the WAR that ends ALL WARS! Christ is returning to usher in His Kingdom and He will be victorious! How is this for a breast cancer awareness message? Breast cancer will be deleted from existence in that Kingdom to come.

That is a beautiful sign. I had never heard of the Chieftains, but they sound like one of the more interesting choices from the next concert series as I like Celtic Woman and Celtic Thunder.
