From the Desk of Sergeant Roberts - Dancing in the Sky

Posted by Sergeant Roberts on

Sergeant Roberts is called to mourn with those who mourn. I provide "In Loving memory" Decals and other keepsakes to help us to honor & memorialize our loved ones.

09/18/2019 - Remember our loved ones the way they would have you remember them. Be Comforted.

Please read a great message of hope and comfort which was written by a Priest at St. Paul's Cathedral of London - Henry Scott Holland (1847-1918) for his wife just before he died... I feel quite sure that your loved one would have shared the same sentiments expressed in these heartfelt words.

All is well

Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Whatever we were to each other, we still are.
Please, call me by my old familiar name.
Speak of me in the same easy way you always did.
Laugh, as we always laughed, at the little jokes we shared together.
Think of me and smile.
Let my name be the household name it always was,
Spoken without the shadow of a ghost in it.
Life means all it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
Death is inevitable, so why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, - for an interval very near.
Nothing is past or lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before,
Only better and happier.
Together forever.
All is well.

04/29/2019  Living with Purpose to Honor our Loved ones. 

I believe that as every beat of our heart continues, that the memories of our loved ones also continue on through our lives. We give Honor to them and their memory when we understand and live a purpose driven life.

What do I mean by purpose driven life?  Truly living from the level of our souls means to move past the mundane thoughts of how life should or should not be and moving past certain expectations, if we do not, then we set ourselves up for disappointment.

We should allow ourselves room for spontaneity and excitement and truly be free from the chains of expectation.  How often are we disappointed by others? This ought not be and the wallowing in disappointment will disappear once we can free ourselves from certain expectations of others and besides, it isn't fair to them either. 

One develops a deeper sense of purpose and increased knowledge when we finally understand our life is not without purpose and that first we are Spiritual, living beings. Then, we are physical living beings.  Our spiritual life requires paying attention to our true nature and often times denying the physical and what it craves when we all know the carnal wants to sit on the throne of our lives and rule in favor of whatever feels good or whatever feels right and then go about doing it no matter the cost and no matter who it hurts, including ourselves. Stop!

Spiritually speaking, we know better and we know what we ought to do.  These are clues to what our soul values most as we live a purpose driven life. As our hearts continue to beat, let us give honor where honor is due while we still can.  ~Sarge

Reference: Galatians Chapter 5

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

  • Ask yourself these questions: Is it plainly forbidden in the Bible? Will it edify me spiritually? Will it defile my body? Will it cause someone else to stumble? Will it hinder my witness? Does it bring Glory to God? Will it violate my conscience? Will it bring me into bondage? Would i want to be doing it when Jesus returns? Am I truly surrendered to what God wants, not what i want? Who am I going to listen to?
