Marty, the Angel Repairman

Written by Suzanne Solle

Continued from page 1

She was in her early twenties atrepparttar time of her death. She and Marty were very close and always had been. He loved to grow roses in his backyard. He called them his babies. After he got home from work duringrepparttar 122294 warmer months, he would go out to tend his roses. His daughter would often join him inrepparttar 122295 garden. Marty would always cut one perfect rose and wordlessly hand it to her. It was his way of telling her how much he valued her and how beautiful she was to him.

Just a few days after her death, Marty had a dream or vision of his daughter telling him that she was at peace and he should move forward with his life. This dream gave him a sense of calm and peace he said. Unfortunately, his wife felt no such peace. She was despondent and could see no point to anything in life. Marty tried to help his wife by telling her about his dream, but she seemed to be out of his reach.

A few months later, Marty and his wife were driving around in downtown Independence. He was trying to get her to decide where to go for lunch, but she was unresponsive. Marty's anger from allrepparttar 122296 pressure building overrepparttar 122297 last few months of his wife shutting everyone and everything out threatened to explode. He took a deep breath and said he was going to drive aroundrepparttar 122298 square until she made a decision about where they were going.

He drove around and around, receiving no response from his wife. When he had tired of driving, he stoppedrepparttar 122299 car, and turned to her to try to reason with her one more time. When he turned to look at her, he saw they were in front of a store calledrepparttar 122300 Angel Lady. He previously didn't even know this store existed. He told his wife they needed to go intorepparttar 122301 store. He couldn't explain why, he just knew they needed to go inside.

As they enteredrepparttar 122302 store, Marty said he immediately felt a sense of peace wash over him. The store is in an old house and consists of several small rooms filled with angel paintings, figurines, books, music -- anything you can imagine with an angel theme. As they enteredrepparttar 122303 second room, Marty looked up and saw a painting of an angel holding a rose. The angel's face looked just like his daughter's. He showed it to his wife and said he must buy it. Forrepparttar 122304 first time since their daughter's death, Marty's wife seemed to be alive. She agreed that they must haverepparttar 122305 painting for their home.

This experience wasrepparttar 122306 turning point for Marty's wife accepting and moving beyond their daughter's death. He said that wasrepparttar 122307 reason he carried cards fromrepparttar 122308 Angel Lady with him wherever he went. He felt there were always people that needed to experiencerepparttar 122309 healing that he and his wife had and he wanted to help them find it.

It was time for Marty to go to his next service call. He had more appliances to repair, more souls to heal.

How does one succeed? How does one live a fulfilling life? You cannot look to others forrepparttar answer as it is within yourself. We all have necessarily unique answers to our own questions because we all have a necessarily unique view ofrepparttar 122293 world, being, our own "experienced Universe".

Such a view requires "responsibility of decisions". We must be able to take responsibility for our own decisions in life. But, to do so, one must know what is at stake and what lies ahead. As such, we must be able to lay out a plan for success without doubt---a simple solution it is not. But, a reasonable and fulfilling solution it always provides.

Today, now, determine what is important in your life and what has been "out-lived". Look outside of your current belief systems and plan for a new life with modified beliefs toward that which "you" see as success. Indeed, your ultimate vision will change with growth and knowledge, but it is essential to get moving on your plan to "leaverepparttar 122294 rut behind". Move forward toward an ever successful vision and leaverepparttar 122295 old voices, based on past circumstances, behind. It is your life, isn't it? --- Aboutrepparttar 122296 Author ---
