Blue Monday - Smiling Sally's Gift

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!


If you're reading this, I've gone to Heaven. I've been under Hospice care since May, but I didn't want to mention it.

Many years ago, I made a decision to accept the gift of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. Now my time on earth has ended, and because of that decision, I'm in a much better place.

God has provided the Gift of Heaven. I'm leaving you a few Bible verses that will show you how to receive this gift.

1. "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" ~ Romans 3:23

2. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life" ~ Romans 6:23

3. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." ~ John 3:16

You may be asking yourself what God requires, or exactly what you’ll need to change. The Bible shows us in simple terms what God is asking of us: believe, confess, and receive.

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” ~ Romans 10:9

I've enjoyed my time with you and I hope to see you in Heaven!

Happy Blue Monday!

To Sally in heaven and her family<
Sally will dearly be missed but never forgotten. She was a beloved blogger friend to many and an example of what blogging was when we all first started out in Blogging and a true example of what blogging should be. It should be about friendship, kindness and compassion. And Sally was all of that.....
Rest in Peace , my friend......

Jim said...

RIP, Sally.

Dear Sally! I know you are in the real blue heaven this morning. we are all going to miss you so much but I will see you again, my sweet friend. Thank you for sharing your love for Jesus.
Prayers for your family,
Shelia :)

R.I.P Sally!
Life is such a sensible flower!
And I sending all my thoughts to them who you left in Earth...

I loved Sally and am thankful for her faith and witness. While I express my deepest sympathy to her family on this loss, I rejoice with them that we will all be together again with her in Heaven through our shared faith in our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.

Sally was one of my early blogging friends, and I tried to do Blue Monday as often as possible, though I have not been blogging much of late. Meeting her both on the blog and in person was a real blessing to me. Sally was so lovely and loved you, her family, as well as her blogging family deeply. She will be sorely missed, but I count myself blessed for having known her.

My love and prayers,

Sheila (The Quintessential Magpie)

Sally, you will be missed and even though you have gone to your blue heaven, it is our loss here on earth. May your family be well to remember your good times together and we, your blogging friends send our condolences to them. Goodbye and rest lightly in your Maker's arms.

Dana of The Stone Rabbit said...


Thank you for this touching farewell post. What a gift . . .telling us goodbye while continuing to share your love and faith.

Vale, Sally. YOu shall be remembered with great fondness!

LV said...

Sally was a very special lady. Even in her last moments she was thinking of her friends. Her new heavenly friends and family will be blessed in her presence. To her family, time helps take care of the pain.

Sami said...

RIP Sally. Condolences to the family.

photodoug said...

You were a special lady. Sally, we too have enjoyed our time with you. Mondays will always be BLUE thanks to you.

Decor To Adore said...

Sally you were such a kind and gentle soul. Thank you for making the word a better and true blue place.

bj said...

Sally, would you kindly say hello to my sweet mama up there...she's the one with an apron on, holding a hand mixer, making a chocolate pie with one hand and painting a lovely picture with the other.
I'll be seeing you, Sally girl.

Sarah said...

Sally, you will be missed here on earth. Your smile still shines in my heart. Blue is your color, and for me blue is the color of heaven. Thinking of you, sweet friend.

GranthamLynn said...

What a beautiful post to write. I will miss our Sweet Sally. I am praying for your family. And for those reading this post.

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Dearest Sally, You and your beautiful smile and attitude will be missed --but I am glad that you are no longer in pain --and are with God in heaven... Nothing could be better than that...

Prayers for your family and loved ones and to Johnny --as everyone adjusts to LIFE without you. HOWEVER, I know that all of them (including us) will keep you alive in their/our memories...

God Bless ALL of YOU,

Joy@aVintageGreen said...

A stunning kindness from Sally to her friends, what a precious woman. Prayers for Johnny and all of Sally's family. She loved so well.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Dear Sally in heaven and to her family --Your inspirational message today gives hope and shows your love for all! You will always be remembered as a joyful person who made everyone smile. Rest in peace, dear Sally. You will always be in my heart and prayers. Your "Blue Saturday" is in good hands with Jeanne!

Ann said...

To all of Sally's family--what an inspirational post from her. I will see one day, I made that decision to follow Jesus years ago. She was a blessing to some many of us followers and blue will always connect me to her. I pray you all will find comfort in the days to come and remember she is dancing with the angels.

Deborah Kay at The Paint Splash said...

Sally will be missed. So thankful she loved Jesus and her family has the hope of eternity. It is ever easy to say goodbye so instead I will say, see you in heaven.

Linda Kay said...

Safe journey, my friend. And blessings to your family. I'm sure they have a deep loss at your passing, but are rejoicing at your new life.

Dear Sally,
It is just like you to leave a post for us this way. Even in your suffering you are thinking of others and have explained the way to salvation. Rest well, dear friend, and someday we will rejoice together in His glorious presence. The Lord be with your dear family.

Blessings and hugs,

Annesphamily said...

To sweet Sally in heaven and your beautiful family, thank you. Jesus is wrapping His arms around you Sally and I know you convinced Him to share some blue this week. I will miss you so much and I am sad for your earthly time is no more. But you were an inspiration, your family is very blessed to have had you here and my heart hurts for Johnny and your loved ones. But they know too how you are in a better place. I will miss this time here but will never forget you and will always tell everyone what a remarkable person you were. Enjoy heaven my friend. You made my life better just because I knew you such a long time. Happy Blue Monday to you in heaven today! xo Anne

Little Wandering Wren said...

Farewell Dearest Sally. Whilst our world has your loss, your final post shows you are at rest, as others say for your finest Blue Monday ever. My very best wishes to all your family and friends. We will miss you. I loved your final words: "I've enjoyed my time with you and I hope to see you in Heaven." As I've said on my Blue Monday post this week, I very much hope I can take you up on your best linky offer yet!
Much love
Wren x

Lisa Easterling said...

I read all of these beautiful comments and long to connect with each and every person. Dear sweet Sally, from a purely human perspective it's been hard seeing you go. But then you didn't live your life from a human perspective, and I know you are hoping we can all look at your parting as seeing you off to a much better place. And I do. I will think of you when I see anything blue, which is often because it's my favorite, too. Thank you for encouraging me along this road of preparing to become a teacher. Thank you for your stories and your smiles and your unsinkable spirit. I love you.

Tootsie said...

Rest In Peace Sally. So sad that we have to say goodbye to such a sweet lady. My heart is with your family and those who miss you so dearly

Nora said...

I really enjoyed knowing Sally and am sad. She will be missed and she was a great blogger.

Jeannie Marie said...

A beautiful and caring post for all to today. I know you are with the Lord and happy. It's a very sad loss for all of the blogging community, You will be missed.


Although I will miss you every Monday on our little Blog Community, I know you're happy in the BLUEST of heavens, next to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Rest in peace sweet friend.

Srivi said...

It was really nice to know you! RIP Sally!

The French Hutch said...

Dearest Sally, Thank you for you good-by and thinking of your friends. I will always think of you when I see the color BLUE! It was a pleasure to know you here on earth and I will see you someday in heaven. Love and prayers for your loved ones you left behind.
Happy Blue Monday dear Sally…………..
Your friend, Emily

Dear Sally in Heaven

This a shock for me and everyone who takes part in Blue Monday.
I'm new to this party but I loved coming over here and thank you for your encouraging comments on my Blue Monday posts.
How thoughtful of you to leave us all a message and your favourite Bible passages.
I will look out for you when it's my turn - I know I'll recognise you as you'll be wearing blue for sure!

To Sally's family I offer my sympathy and prayers during this sad time.
Take care


Irene said...

RIP Sally. My deepest condolences to your family and friends.

Trust you, Sally, to leave such a touching farewell post. My most heartfelt condolences to your family. I'll miss your presence here, and doubt that I'll ever again see something beautiful and blue without thinking of you.

Sonia said...

Blessings and condolences to your family...I know you are in Blue Heaven and for believers we take comfort in knowing that!

Magnus said...

R.I.P Smiling Sally, you will be missed, my sympathy to the family.

JLS Hall said...

Such an awful shock. I will miss Sally so much. My thoughts are with her family. She brought so much happiness and laughter to so many. I'm not sure if we do have a spirit that lives on after we leave this life. But if we do, I know Sally's spirit is smiling wherever she is.

Mrs. Sarah Coller said...

Sweet Sally was one of the first blogs I started linking up to when I started so long ago. She could leave us no better message to remember her by---the message of Christ's gift to us! Thank you, Sally, for leaving a beautiful legacy!

Al said...

My condolences to Sally's family - I didn't know her in person but she will be missed all the same.

Barbara F. said...

Sally in Heaven, you truly were a special soul. Rest in peace, dear lady. Lots of gorgeous blue there.

NCSue said...

Sorry to see you leave this earthly place, Sally, but I will look forward to meeting you in person once I get "to the other side".

Wishing comfort and peace for those you leave behind...

Margaret Birding For Pleasure said...

My heart goes out to your family. I am glad you left a message for bloggers so that if they chose, they would know the Peace, Joy, Love and Eternal Life in the presence of our Lord. I will meet you later on Sally in heaven.

I haven't been here for awhile and am so saddened to see this news. Thank you for years of enjoyment Sally. I hope we all see you in heaven some day.

Suzanne McClendon said...

I've only just found this blog. I am so sorry to hear that Sally is no longer with us. I look forward to meeting her in Heaven some day.

Pictografio said...

I participated in this game led by Sally by few years, and recently I had a few weeks off. Today I came here and I froze ... :(
Thanks to Sally for the warm words and good fun, I hope you're still playing well.

Unknown said...

Today, after a year of no blogging I decided to write and as in the past, the first person that came to mind was Sally's blue blog because she was one of my first faithful bloggers who always found time to comment on my posts and honestly she kept me coming back every time. Never met her but I loved her friendship and will miss her. May she rest in a sea blue, peaceful and always loved. Our dear Smiling Sally, you will be missed by many.

Gin Hansson said...

You will surely missed Sally. Farewell and see you in heaven...

veta said...

I just found out about Sally. I was not active in participating in the meme. The last post was last January. I do not know that she's dead. Though we don't know each other deeply, but, in my heart I begin to love you, Sally. So sad to know this but I know you are happy in heaven right now. keep the blue burning in heaven, Sally.

Jeannie and Linda said...

Will miss you Sally, you have always been a lovely, positive presence. So happy to know that you had peace when you left us. God bless your family.

Missy Wertz said...

And family, I have not blogged in years. When I started, years ago, Sally was one of my first "blogging Friends". She even checked on me often when I fell ill a few years ago. I signed onto my blog a few moments ago and Blue Monday was my last post. I, of course, followed the link here first. Thankful that we both know Jesus Christ as our Lord & Savior, and one day, we will meet in person, in heaven.

Judi said...

I am so saddened by this. Sally was one of my first blogging friends as well. I haven't really blogged for a quite some time and didn't realize she was not well. I left a couple of posts in the last year and only today realized there were some waiting for me to accept. Sadly Sally's post was there and when I clicked over to leave her a message I found hers.

I so enjoyed reading about her love for blue and her life and her family.

God Bless,

Thank you for sharing this. It brought tears to my eyes and is exactly how Sally would have wanted it. The perfect last post! I am so sorry to hear of this and even more sorry that I am almost a year late. My prayers for all of you. I will remember Sally forever.

Tootsie said...

Rest peacefully sweet Sally. You will be sadly missed. My heart goes to your family and friends.

Marcia said...

Rejoice in heaven, Sally. I stopped by today to see what you and blue monday were up to, and although I'm saddened to read that you've left us, I know that you are in glory so I rejoice for you. From life to life we go, dear heart. See you on the other side.
My condolences to Sally's loved ones.

I used to participate in Blue Monday regularly, but eventually fell away from it. An old Blue Monday post I was looking up caused me to click through to see if Sally was still hosting it. I'm sorry, for her family's sake, to hear that she has gone. But I am so thankful for the witness she left. Sally, I'll see you there some day!
