About two weeks ago, our family gathered to celebrate my Mom’s 80th birthday.
She was pleasantly surprised and overjoyed that the celebration was
all about “her”. She always gave so generously and it was our turn to
express our love and appreciation for all she has done for us.
Mom was our prayer warrior; her prayers to God
provided a fleet of protective angels all around us.
My family chuckles at this statement, but I know it is true.
In her home, on the kitchen table, lay her Bible still open to the
book of Psalms. Today, like every day, she read and prayed
for us, her family. We were her joy, her purpose and her will for life on Earth.
Today was also the day when she was called away to be
with the Lord above, away from this Earth to enter into Heaven.
Mom was a rock, a prayer warrior, and our protective angel on Earth.
Her gifts and attributes were many: Encourager, helper, generous giver,
loyal, faithful, loving, trustworthy, devoted, and dedicated to her family.
Mom, we feel sorrow of your sudden passing and yet are joyful to know you are in a peaceful place
with the angels and saints in Heaven. Even so, we will miss you dearly. We embrace the
values you taught us because they are the part of you we keep in our own
hearts and share with others. Until we meet again in Heaven, we will always love you mom.
