Thank you to any and all of you who offered up prayers for my aunt in the last blog. She passed on Wenesday, about the time I was posting. I received a card several years back in sympathy for the passing of my grandmother and I want to share it's message...
Someone new has entered
our eternal home above-
the heavenly gate has opened wide
to welcome one you love.
We cannot help the tears that fall-
our hearts need time to grieve
when earthly life has ended
and a loved one has to leave.
Yet even in the saddest time,
we know our Savior lives,
and we can trust completely
in the promise that He gives-
that in a glad reunion with the Lord
our loved one's wait
to welcome us in joy
with no more tears beyond the gate.
Thank you Lord for a place with no more tears beyond the gate.
