Mother is Home

Post  Irv Everett on Fri 25 Jul 2008, 1:36 pm

Mother is Home



Her breathing was shallow; the time was near

We awaited Godís angels; to take her from here

And thoughts entered into my mind

Of the past yearís moments in time



The family resembled her struggling life

With hugs and kisses; with turmoil and strife

Gathering together as she drew close to death

Then pushing away with her recovering breath



The message was clear; could we not get it right

She was holding on for us; that was the fight

She wasnít sure; we could hold the family together

We were so fickle; not like birds of a feather



But it was okay, God was calling her home

No more pain to bear; no more suffering along

And I got the message; I read the signs

As she went home with God; at that moment in time



I cried for the loss; but wouldnít bring her back

God pricked at my heart; to get me on track

And I listened to the Lord and invited Him in

He forgave my trespasses; He forgave my sins



Now when I reflect, on the yearís moments in time

Iím able to see Godís hand; so loving and kind

Mother is home; no more suffering, no more pain

And God used my loss; and He made it my gain

Remarkable Hope

Post  Fenny West on Sat 26 Jul 2008, 12:22 am

Indeed, what a remarkable hope, we have even in death.
Absent in the body, present with the Lord.
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
Ps116:15
One day we shall meet again.

How wonderful that He could turn your pain into a gain!

Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for your comments Blessed4ever and Fenny. To be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord; what a day that will be. Blessings Irv
