Darlene, I know you will miss your mother but live your life in such-a-way to be assured you will again be united with your family. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent. She was a precious lady, I remember well her rocking my baby, Beth in the church nursery when she was three-years-old. Jackie My loving grandmother, the day you left, my heart filled-with-pain, it felt-like-a theft. I feel-so-much sorrow, deep-is-my grief; now you're-not-suffering, that's-a-relief. I hope sincerely you rest-in-peace, my-love-for you shall-never-cease. I miss you so-much deeply-and-dearly, I'll remember-your-voice forever-and-clearly. For-so-many of us, you-were-our foundation, a beautiful-life deserves a standing-ovation. Thank you, Grandmother for selflessly sharing; such a-loving-grandmother, thoughtful-and-caring MOMMA WAS A ROCK Rev. Jim Reeves I remember my momma singing as she went about her day; cooking, cleaning and washing, for that was just my-momma's-way. Her family was everything to her and somehow she was always there to give a hug, dress-a-wound or to hear our-bedtime-prayer. No matter how our lives changed with the ticking of-the-clock; we could always count on Momma, 'cause Momma was-our-rock. ORPHANED Read John 14:15 - 21 Jesus said, "I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before-long, the world will not see me anymore but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that-day you will realize I am in my-Father, I am in you and you are in me. John 14:18 - 20 New-International version Even-though I was an adult when my parents died, I felt a keen-sense of what it was like to be an orphan. Gone were the two-people who had nurtured me and shaped my life. Sharp-grief gave way to bewilderment, "Who am I now; who knows me deeply yet loves me anyway? The gospel of John recounts Jesus telling His-disciples although the time is coming they would see Him no-more but He would always be a part of them just-as they would forever be a part of Him. So it has been with my parents. I see now even-after their-deaths, their example of loving-kindness continues to teach me and guide my-life. That goes deeper than just warm-memories. My parents are in me at a deep-level, deeper than the mind can comprehend and as-deep as the heart. Surely God was their-heart's teacher. In the same-way I come to know God through the life and love of Jesus. Nurturing that-relationship through prayer, study, giving and serving keeps me forever-connected to the living-God. Gracious-God, let who we are reflect who You are in all we do. Amen Because of God's great-love for us, we are never-orphaned.
