We sat in cushioned pews, embraced by God’s love,
awestruck by the strength of her faith. Her words were
pillars of conviction. Her eyes never lost their luster
for His surrounding beauty. She moved gracefully
around the stage, as her voice was a hymn to our
saddened souls. Although her body was failing, she
wore elegance beautifully in the stylish cap. Her smile
permeated the sanctuary. Even so, we held back tears,
ready for pouring. God needed one more angel. He knew
her death would cause heartache for her devoted husband
and two lovely teens. Yet, still He called her home.
She soon received her wings.

I am now home care hospice nurse for mother so poem meaningful to me. I am comforted in knowing that through her courage and stern Presbyterian faith she will be one of God’s favorites.
Carl, my prayers are with you during this difficult time with your Mother, but I think it’s wonderful of you to care for her. She is lucky to have a caring and loving son. Wendy was also Presbyterian, just a touch of coincidence or maybe not…thank you for your comment and again, you will be in my thoughts and prayers…if you ever need an ear, send me an email. I still think of my Mom; it’s surreal…

Thanks so much, PJ! xoxo

A very moving tribute, beautiful and sad at the same time, Lauren. May she rest in peace. xoxo
Thanks, Francina, she was only in her late 40’s when brain cancer took her…very sad, but she was an amazing woman and minister. Thanks for your blessing! xoxo
Such a lovely, beautifully written piece, Lauren. When someone dies fairly young, we can’t help but think it is too soon. But your poem reflects on how each life long or short is just a piece of the spiritual journey. XO
Thanks again, Diane, losing someone is tough enough, but when they are young, it’s even more difficult to understand and process…I do appreciate your kind words! xo
