Betty's Light

Betty’s Light



I called her the Ole Battle Axe and she called me a Nerd;

She would stick out her tongue and then show me the bird.

She was to me, one, of God’s greatest gifts;

And my heart grew heavy as her health began to slip.



The children grew close when it looked her life would end;

Then they drifted apart when she was on the mend.

And the children prayed to God for death’s swift acquittal;

For the doctor had said, “she wouldn’t be leaving this hospital”.



And when salvation was brought up in our conversation;

She had settled it years ago; with angelic jubilation.

Now her health had failed, she had been in the bed for months;

She could not speak now, her responses were only grunts.



Psalms 100, her favorite, was read on that very day;

And God’s beautiful angels came to wisp her away.

Her body looked so twisted in agony and pain;

And the worldly grip released as she entered Heaven’s plain.



I’ve never felt as helpless, viewing the casket in the grave;

Yet, through all her suffering, my soul was to be saved.

Satan had a hold of me; I was smitten in his wrath;

But her love for the Lord had placed me upon God’s path.



We had talked once before about salvations date;

She told me without my understanding “I’ll see you at the gate”.

She knew before I did, a day, I will always remember;For Jesus came into my heart and saved me that December.
