When I originally started this page it was called "Ali Strong" it was so we could keep everyone who was following her journey updated and in the loop.. since she passed we changed the name to Alinas light shining thru kindness. Our family is trying to let her light shine bright since she isn't here anymore. This year we decided since Alina loved Christmas so much that we wanted to help families with Christmas. We selected a couple families and specifically bought off of those childrens lists. & in total we are helping 9 kiddos have a great Christmas ❤️ now this year it was kinda a last minute thing we literally decided to do this in October. But we'd love to continue to do this. So we'd love to do fundraisers throughout the year and stuff to be able to help even more kiddos next year!! We've actually already started a fund and are saving money for next years Christmas! Our family would love to have your support and to follow us throughout this journey! ❤️ also if anyone has any suggestions or any fundraiser ideas or anything we'd greatly appreciate them! I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas ❤️❤️

Happy 5th Birthday Alina Faith 💛

Today I requested ( a friend presented it for me ) went in front of the board to hang a wreath at the Wirt county court house and to place gold pin wheels in the front lawn , in Honor of Alina , lynlee ( another child who lost her battle in Wirt county ) and all those that have gone before or will fight this evil monster in the future . To raise awareness for Childhood cancer during the entire month of September on September 1 , 2020 . I’m not sure the time just yet . I’d love for anyone that is willing to join . To be a light and help spread awareness with me . 💛🎗

I decided one of the things I would do to give back , to let Alina’s light shine , is that each day there is a post in our fb memories of a set back or asking for prayers for our sweet Ali girl during her journey last year , I’m going to pay it forward and bless someone . I’m going to show that devil he didn’t win . I’m going to let light shine on a day that was of darkness during her journey . I started this past week when the first post was made that she was diagnosed with cancer . And I’ll continue for the next 10 months for each post . Please pray with me that God leads me to the right person to bless . Where two or more gather in my name I am there with them . By the blood of the lamb and the words of our testimonies we are overcomers . And we are going to over come the darkness and shine the light 💡☝️❤️🎗

Today is superhero day .. not all super hero’s wear capes . In fact wearing capes doesn’t make you a super hero at all . The true super hero’s are the ones that face each day fighting for life or for the life of a loved one . Fighting battles that you have no control of , Nor can you just “ Fix it “ . It’s having your heart tore out on a daily , while trying to put on a smile and cherish every moment in the midst of your biggest storm . It’s trying to live life with a huge piece of you missing That you can’t get back . It’s learning to live again when you just want to go to heaven to see your loved one . It’s more than anyone could imagine unless you’ve been in the middle of it . So to all the super hero kiddos fighting big battles , parents enduring the pain and keeping the smile to keep their babies happy , to the kiddos that passed on to heaven and never gave up , and to the parents and families that’s lost a loved one and are still trying to Navigate their lives with a broken heart , and to letting those precious angels light continue to shine . In honor , in memory of all those ones that have endured childhood cancer 🎗🎗 You’re all HERO’s in my book . No matter what the details of your story are . Keep Fighting , Don’t give up , stand tall and stand strong . You are loved and wanted and cherished and missed .

We’ve changed the name of the group . Alinas battle was long and hard , but so short . Thru it all she kept a smile on her face and kept her contagious little laugh . She was a light to all the was around her . She loved to sing this little light of mine and wave that little finger around . So we’ve decided that we want to continue shining Alina’s light . We want to carry her memory on throughout our lives and do the best we can to be a shining light to others . We want to be able to help others in their time of need and bless people when they are struggling with the battles of life . I know this isn’t the time to be starting all the things we have planned . So we are just doing small things right now whenever the lord tells us to and we come across those he sends us . We plan to maybe make blankets , buy toys and kid items to donate to the Ronald McDonald and Nationwide children’s . They helped so much and was so generous during Alina’s battle. We want to do fundraisers to help other families in need . We have big plans ❤️ I wanted to do a little update so everyone knew why we did a name change . And since we already had so many people following this page we figured it would just be best to keep this page instead of making a new one . We will be taking fabric donations , toy donations ( new only as per requirements to donate to hospitals ) anything that children would use to brighten their days. Color books , crayons , small toys or games . The list is really limitless . We would like to sponsor a child/ children for Christmas . We want to do things that Will bless others . That will bring someone a light to their darkness . We want to show love just as it was shown to us . And this will take not just us but help from others as we want to go big . The more help and donations the more families we can help . Please pray for us that we do only what God wants us to do and bless all those he places in our path . ❤️

Trying to navigate the stormy waters of life is exhausting. The last 28 days have been horrendous . I felt like I was in a storm that I wasnt going to come out of . My life felt like it was ravaged by a massive tornado and I couldnt see the light . This is just being honest and real . This pain has been the most raw emotion I’ve ever felt in my life . I didnt want to reach out because I’m supposed to be the strong one , I’m the one that has praised God thru this storm up until now and I couldn’t find the light . I knew without a shadow of a doubt our sweet Ali girl was safe happy and whole in the arms of Jesus , but I couldn’t find the light of happiness . I was slipping into a deep dark hole that I couldn’t find my way out of . And that’s because I kept quiet out of a little bit of fear , see I’ve been freed from fear so the enemy always tries to use that against me . But I feared people would see me as weak and that I didn’t trust God as much as I said I did , or that someone would see my brokenness and not believe in the goodness of My God . That I have failed somehow . I believed so much That Ali was going to survive this and that we would never be in this situation and I worried so much about my brother that I think I forgot to think of myself and how this would affect me or my family . As everyone knows we were very close to Ali she was apart of us more than just being our niece . The last month I’ve found it hard to even be out of bed and be a mother to my own children , to get thru the day , I’ve felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest and I couldnt breathe . I felt like my head was going to explode and I was angry at the world . I was angry at myself for feeling this way , I was angry for not being able to celebrate the life she did have and not be happy . I believe I had a misconception that because I knew she was going to heaven that I wasnt going to experience all these feelings . That I knew she was with Jesus so I would be ok . I was wrong . It’s grieving and it’s something we all must do . But we can’t stay there to long or we will become depressed , we will feel the weight of the world on our shoulders . We will hide away from all Those that are truly there to help us , but they can’t if we don’t tell them we are struggling . This week I woke up and God told me it’s going to be ok . I will always miss our sweet girl and That’s ok . But that he’s got me and it’s time to put the mourning down and time to celebrate every day we had , 3 precious years , that he didn’t have to give us . While we say we wish we could have one more day , but each day would be the same , we would want one more day . And instead of wishing we had one more day to remember and to celebrate the 529 days that she did have . The lord said that in Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of good courage , fear not , nor be afraid , for the lord thy God he it is that doeth with thee , he will not fail thee or forsake the . So If you are struggling a loss , mourning , stress , anxiety , depression or fear . For Pete’s sake don’t hide it . Go to someone you trust and if you don’t have someone please come to me , all in confidence that it won’t be shared only between God you and me . I Love the Lord with my heart and soul , and while we are supposed to mourn , we aren’t supposed to stay there . But I was letting the enemy steal my joy , I was letting depression sneak in , I was mourning to a place of no return , I was giving the enemy ample room to move into my life and not even seeing it , Bc my heart was so hurt , a pain I’ve never experienced and I felt like I assume just give up bc I didn’t think I could ever not feel that pain . My heart still hurts , I’ll forever miss her , but with God all things are possible . And he nor she wants me to suffer . Her memory book from the funeral says don’t not stand at my grave an weep : for I am not there . And to be absent from the body is to be present with the lord . She wants us happy and to live our lives until we are with her in heaven . Please don’t let the enemy steal your joy . Don’t let the depression or anxiety creep in . Let God be in control . Let me help you if this is you ❤️💕

They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason,
Will change the way I feel,
No-one knows the heartache,
That lies behind my smile,
No-one knows how many times,
I have broken down and cried,
I want to tell you something,
So there won’t be any doubt,
You’re so wonderful to think of,
But so hard to be without. The mention of Alinas name
May bring tears to my eyes,
But it never fails to bring
Music to my ears.

Bingo is this Saturday doors open at 4 and bingo starts at 5. Tickets are 20$ for 20 games. There will also be a raffle , silent auction 50/50 . Alina’s new scans Friday showed two new brain tumors since her brain surgery . Our Ali girl is getting ready to start radiation . As of last week Alina hasn’t been able to leave the hospital and we’re not sure how things are going to go from here . How long they will be at the hospital or when she will be able to come home . Lots of things are in the air right now . Well know more this week hopefully . The bingo money raised will be used for food and necessaries while they are at the hospital and the same when they come home . And to travel back and forth for Alina’s appointments when she does come home again. This is a battle that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy . Alina’s daddy hasn’t been able to work much due to Alina being sick and traveling back and forth so much . We thank each and everyone of you that has helped in the past , the present and will in the future . We thank you for every single prayer and cry out to God for our sweet Ali girl . She is our fighter and she isn’t giving up !! If you wanna ticket you can contact Cheryl Rexroad Chasity Smith Or myself . Or you can buy tickets at the door while they last . Thank you all ❤️❤️
