Pink Saturday: BELOVED

October 31, 2009


Beloved . . . Loved . . .

Those were the words that came up for the meaning of the name Amy.

How true! She was surrounded with so much love . . .


Debbie’s blog shows just that.

A chronicle . . . a diary . . . a story about her dear Amy.

A story of struggle, strength and faith.

An inspiration.

Amy Dawn


Though only a glimpse . . .

We’ve come to know her as a dear sweet soul,

We’ve come to know her as a gentle one and yet with so much strength –

Her faith unwavering.

We’ve come to know Amy through her mother’s very loving eyes.


Her life will be of no pain, no struggle, no sorrow anymore.

And just as her name means,

She was, and will always be, loved . . .

Through this event, we were fortunate to have come to know of Amy’s story through  Debbie.

    Hello, HPS (I’m participating vicariously) and happy Halloween. Oh Li, What a Lovely and Poingant Post!

    My favorite holiday is today because it involves costumes and fantasy. And candy of course, but I’m not indulging in that this year. I am at the store, dressed up as a witch and looking very scary I’m sure.

    Have a great day! xJ

    This is a beautiful tribute. Isn’t it amazing how one can miss someone you never even met. I keep expecting to see updates each day. It must be so difficult for her family, I know her presence is missed tremendously.

    Happy Pink to you and I hope all is well in your little corner of the world.

    Ah Li, your tribute to Amy is lovely. We all miss her so, even though we never met her in person. Her loving family shared so much of their struggle with us and we grew to know her and love her. Bless her. And may comfort come to her family and friends.

    Happy Pink Saturday, Li.

    Ah, so sad. And what a beautiful painting to illustrate/commemmorate.

    Yes, I’m getting back in the groove now and things are slowly getting back to normal. It all takes time, and more time… there’s no timetable for these things.

    A very happy Pink Saturday, and Happy Halloween for yesterday.

    Such a lovely tribute! We are all so sad for her, her family and friends. However, I do feel like part of their community, sharing in their sorrow of the passing of such a wonderful person. Thanks for saying it so well.

    Hi, Li… that is absolutely gorgeous! Both the beautiful sentiment expressed here and the lovely pink flower.

    Sending lots and lots of love your way, friend, for always being so special.

    I missed Pink Saturday as we had unexpected out of town company that threw my schedule off. Glad I didn’t miss this. It’s amazing. But so are you!

    Love you…

    Li ~ What a beautiful tribute to Amy. But I wouldn’t expect anything else from such a caring and wonderful person as yourself. I too, felt like I knew Amy through Debbie and Sherri’s blog. I’m sure she is watching from heaven.

    Hello Li, thank you for your sweet comment about the towels. I too love those word as they truly have meaning to us all.

    Your tribute to Amy Dawn is beautiful. She had such a short sweet life and is with our Lord away from pain and illness.

    Hugs and blessings, Jeanne

    A very lovely tribute to Amy. I am sure her family would appreciate it so much. The picture is really lovely. I’m sure they are clinging to the fact that she is no longer suffering in so much pain.

    Have a lovely week!

    This was such a beautiful and thoughtful post. Indeed, what a privilege it was for us to be inspired by the life of Amy Dawn and the devotion/unconditional love shown to her by her family and others. I cannot imagine the deep sense of loss her family is experiencing at this time. My heart and prayers continue to go out to this family.

    That is the most beautiful picture thankyou for sharing:)

    Hi, Li,
    Such a beautiful tribute to sweet Amy! Thank you for sharing these thoughts with us today. I am also so thankful you and your loved ones are okay after the terrible storms. Blessings to you and thank you so much for stopping by for a visit at Bunny Cottage. I always enjoy your company! Vicki

    What a beautiful post. Happy but a bit late pink Saturday.

  17. November 3, 2009 6:07 am

    How interesting to look up the meaning of her name… and she was both. Sad but happy knowing she is in the right place now, free of suffering.

  18. November 3, 2009 12:01 pm

    Happy PiNk to you!

    So glad that Amy is no longer suffering…beautiful words you wrote.

    Thanks for stopping by….and no I haven’t gone to find that old church yet…..I’ll likely wait until tourist season slows down a bit before heading to the Cades Cove.

    What a beautiful pink flower Li..did you paint that? Gorgeous…
    Sweet tribute to a sweet girl…so sad…but she is at peace now with the angels.

    This is so touching Li. I sent Amy a card and when I heard she had passed on, I was so sad. So young to be taken away from the family that loved her. Cancer is such a sad, senseless disease.

  21. November 4, 2009 11:55 am

    Hi Li,
    Your tribute, words and flower are so touching. You always find the words to touch hearts. I love that about you so much. Amy was a darling and now at peace. I pray for the family in the days ahead. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    Also thank you for stopping by and your kind comments. I love the Zig Ziglar quote you shared. So true!

    Blessings to you, Celestina Marie

    I love socks! I don’t usually wear them in the summer, and I noticed about 3 weeks ago I was needing them in the house. I’ve got some with horses, fishies, cats, I usually wear those around the house and wear a solid color when I go out. Happy Pink Day and have a wonderful weekend!
