Painting The Town Red For Friday

"Friday Shoot-Out's" subject is "PAINT THE TOWN RED" so I'm starting with a little love.The best feeling in the world is L~O~V~E............

Cool Daddy-O Gordon over at fridayshootoutsfromfloriday.blogspot.com got to pick our assignment this week. This one is going to be a blast.

Anything RED. Heck, you might even find a redneck to shoot........the possibilities with the one are infinate almost. Great choice Gordon my friend!!!

Thank you so very much for all of your prayer's for my daughter. I can't tell you how priceless it is to have such kind friends who are so supportive. She did lose her baby and is of course inconsolable. I love her so very much......with everything in me and it is tearing me apart to see her like this.

When baby hurts..............Mom hurts. She is my heart.

"You're gonna miss this..you're gonna want this back. You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast. These are the good times, so take a good look around. You may not know this now...........but you're gonna miss this".

  1. My darling friend Reggie Girl, I'm so so sorry about your daughter losing her baby. Please give her a hug from me ...I'm sending love and light and prayers.
    As you know my own daughter is due any day now ..
    it's hard isn't it? Watching them go through their own life trials.
    I'm not sure how much I will paint the town red ...*smile* but I'll try!

    Love you so much ....

    Sarah Lulu

  2. oh thats a wonderful picture of LOVE

  3. I'm trying to think of things to take pictures of... the weather isn't the greatest here. Cloudy and I think it is suppose to get windy again. I may have to look in cabinets and such to get pictures :-)

    I am so sorry for your daughter's loss and yours. My prayers are there for y'all.

  4. Continued prayers for your daughter and all of you. God bless dear friend. Love, Mildred Nalley

  5. REggieGirl, I am just now back on the computer after our busy family-event weekend and my sister being here from the states, so I did not know about your daughter. I am soooo sorry to hear that she lost the baby, and I know how painful it must be for you to sit by and watch her in such pain. I wish that I could send a hug on over your way to you both to make it all better. I will keep you both in my thoughts!!

    I was just stopping by to say hi and see how you were, since it has been almost a week since I have been on blogger visiting all my favorite friends her! Inspite of your recent loss, wishing you a good Wed. hugs, Debby

  6. Reggie,
    I'm so sorry about your daughter loosing her baby. I have been sending prayers that way and will continue. It is so hard to see our kids go through things that we can't control. I pray peace for you both.

    Have a Blessed day

    Much Love....

  7. I am so sorry to hear about hers and your loss. I have been there. I will say a prayer for her in this time of sorrow.

  8. That just has to be the most painful experience ever! There are no words to make it easier. My prayer for you all is that God keeps you wrapped in strength and love.

  9. It's really hard sometimes to face lifes challenges ourself but when it's our children and grandchildren it just seems so much harder.
    God is in control and he has a plan for your daughter and being a mother right now was just not a part of His plan for her. Praying that she will have the faith to carry on and look for hope and happiness and just know that she is not alone in this loss. She has so many praying for her and all of you and I know that God hears and answers prayers. Sending up even more for each of you to feel His comfort.

    It's stormed here all week and I'm just lost on RED :(

  10. I want to run right over and hug you! I too lost three babies before having my daughter that was born with heart problems, and we lost her in 2000. Babe you and her are in my heart...

  11. Hugs, prayers and warm thoughts. xo

  12. No words just kind thoughts great song you quoted and love U ....it is all in gods hands anywho my dear.....lani

  13. Reggie Girl, Iam sorry to hear about the loss of the baby. I have been at our lakehouse overnight and just returned to find your message. My prayers and best wishes go out to the whole family.
    We must trust in the Lord to watch over us. Bobody can say why things happen the way they do. In your daughter's case, pouring her heart out to the Lord in prayer would be very theraputic, I believe. Not only should we speak to God in our prayers, but, stay on our knees and wait for our answers. I know that God will comfort her if she is receptive to the Spirit.
    My wife and I had the same thing happen in our early marriage. Looking bac on that time, I can remember the devestation we felt.
    We lost a little girl at five months into the pregnancy. Heavenly Father, the following year, sent us identical twin girls. We have always felt that the first twin was one intended for us the previous year. The Lord blessed us beyond our wildest dreams.
    I have always felt that there are times that as Heavenly Father watches over us that he protects us, even when it hurts at the time. Possibly, the baby was in a state of development that it could have been born handicapped or even deformed. I know these things are probably not what a grieving mother might not want to hear. But, God knows what is best for us, and our unborn babies.
    Give our love to your daughter and the rest of your family.
    Reggie Girl, what a great mom you are to be there for your daughter during this hard time. If there is anything we can do, plkease let us know. Maybe a little quiet time at our lakehouse would be good for her. It is available for her free of charge if she would like a little R & R. It's even in Georgia. God bless you as you cope with this difficult situation.
    Walk With Faith

  14. Sending prayers of comfort and hope to your daughter RG. I am sorry for her loss. We know God has his reasons. Sometimes it just does not seem fair though.

    Hmmm anything Red? I'll do my best!

  15. Oh Reggie...I'm so sorry for your daughter's (& your) loss. She is in my thoughts.

  16. I'm sorry to hear about your daughter's loss...I lost a child (many years ago now)...and so I especially grieve for you... she will be high on my prayer list this week...I am so sorry.

    On a brighter note...I'm here today to let you know that I've nominated you for the Noblesse Oblige Award... visit my blog to pick it up! Congrats...you certainly fit the award's description! I'm proud to know you. ~Janine XO

  17. Oh Reggie, I had no idea about your daughter and the baby....been a bad blogger about reading posts. My heart and prayers go out to you and the family. We lost our first baby at childbirth and I can honestly say that one will never, ever get over it but have to believe in your faith and that God has a reason for everything. I learned to appreciate every little move my other children made and still do today. Through our daughter and her illness, many woman have been saved from carrying their babies full term. At the time, it did not give us any consolation but am grateful her small time with us had a purpose if only to help others.
    Prayers...and lots of that red "love" to you!!

  18. I'm so sorry too. Sending love xxxx

  20. Reggie, I'm so very sorry to hear about your daughter and the loss of her baby.. It is very hard--and we Mama's do hurt so much when our kids hurt... My love and prayers are with you and your family.

    Hugs and lots of Prayers,
    P.S. I love Trace Adkins --and that song!

  21. Oh Reggie, I'm so sorry for you and your daughter. I lost a baby last Spring and know that this is probably the most difficult time of your and your daughter's lives. My mom told me the hardest part for her was feeling so helpless to help me. It will get better but it will always be with her. PT and PP for her and your family.

    I look forward to seeing how you paint the town red.

  22. Dear Reggie, sorry for you daughter´s loss. My condolence,

  23. I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter of losing her baby :-( God has his own reasons for that.

    I'll try to come up anything red for tomorrow's shootout, I just found out now hehehe. I need to dig photos then.

  24. Reggie Girl, I knew your daughter was ill but I must have missed something. I had no idea why. How could I have missed this?

    I am so sorry she lost her baby. Your hearts must be broken.

    You are such a strong person. I know you will give her all the support the needs. My goodness, you have been through so much lately.

    I knew about Prince and was going to see how he was doing this evening. So, I hope he is recovering well.

    You take care, Reggie Girl. We all love and support you!

    Give your daughter our sympathies. And a big hug!

  25. I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter. That is such an awful pain to experience. I can't even imagine how painful it would be to watch your child suffer through it. My prayers are will you both!

  26. I am not really understanding what happened, but never mind.
    Reggie ~ I wish I could take your daughter's pain away, I am so sorry that I can't.

    Biggest Aussie group hug to you and yours.xx

  27. It just breaks my heart to hear about this & I know what you mean about hurting for your baby girl. I lost 3 babies before we finally made it to full term with one. Most people don't understand that there is a grieving process for miscarriages & you still carry them in your heart for life. My prayers & good thoughts are with your daughter. Love & hugs to you.

  28. I'm so sorry for your loss.
    My heart goes out to your family.
    I'll be praying for your sweet daughter.

  29. Hi Reggie Girl, I am truly sorry about your daughter's loss. I am praying to God that He is seeing her through this heartbreaking process...

    My thoughts are prayers are with you.

  31. Oh sweetie that is so hard. I will add my prayers to the others (sorry I missed seeing a post about it). :(
