I'm Back and Thank You

I'm back everyone. I just want to say thank you to all those who have been praying for our family. It really means a lot to know that someone out there is praying for you and you have never even met them face to face.

The funeral went smoothly. Last Friday night, when we got the phone call about my Mother in law, I began praying that the Lord would keep anyone away, that would cause problems for my husband and his siblings. That prayer was answered. There were a few who did not come.

My husband did a wonderful job performing the service, it was beautiful. There are so many in that family who are not saved and have no hope. But they have heard the Gospel again through my husband's speaking. I'm praying that the Lord will bring back the words that were spoken on Monday to those who are not saved, so they will know that they need to be saved and they will ask and believe on Jesus.

He was able to tell his family and friends how his Momma had no fears of dying. She was ready to meet her Saviour. He told how we were able to read the Bible to her when she was agitated and upset these last few months and how a moment of peace came over her.

My Mother in law's last Sunday night here, we went to visit her. She was really having a hard time. She was in pain and crying and trying to talk and her speech was so hard to understand. I had stepped out of the room for about 5 minutes. My husband was sitting beside her and trying to talk to her. She began reaching up (with very clear speech) she began asking,"Momma is that you? Won't you help me? Yes,I do see you?"After this went on the whole time I was out of the room, her speech became unclear again. She became agitated and moaning with pain. I got her Bible out and began reading Psalm 23, she reached over and took my hand and began quoting some of the words. I also read John 14:1-7, she continued to try and quote those verses. When I finished and closed the Bible. She reached up and started talking again with clear speech," Lord, I know that's you. Won't you help me, take me from this?" From that moment on My Mother in law's speech was never clear after that.

When I think back on Sunday November 2nd, I think about how the Lord eased my worry about her Salvation. She had always said that she was a born again Christian. But I had always had a bit of doubt in my mind. After hearing my Mother in law talk to the Lord, that doubt left. I know that she is in Heaven.


  1. What a beautiful testimony! And what a blessed assurance to know that she is now right in her Lord's presence!

  2. Deborah - Thanks for commenting. We are at peace with her passing. We only feel relief because she is no longer suffering.
    It is wonderful to know that Momma is walking on those streets of gold with our Lord and Saviour.

    OK, you made me tear up reading your post. It is so hard to lose a loved one but it sounds like she was comforted. It's good to know she has God in her life and your family surrounded her with your love.

    Blessings to your family.

  4. Sorry about that! Everytime I think about what I got to see and hear, it brings tears of Joy.

    No, don't be sorry! I am glad you shared the story with us!

  6. I got teary eyed reading that... Praise the Lord for the comfort of knowing where she went and also for the unsaved family hearing the Gospel yet one more time!
