Words cannot express my heartfelt grief in the sudden passing of our mother, Evelyn (far left) this week. Just a few days after celebrating her 89th birthday with her three children, she slipped into eternity. Although we hadn’t a clue she was about to depart for Heaven, God orchestrated our timely good-bye visits within a mere three day span.
Although a huge sinkhole has been left in the hearts of her family and friends, the memory of this strong woman of God keeps us pressing toward the prize. Elaine has lost not only our mom but a valiant sitter who regularly encouraged her daughter through prayers of faith and Scripture readings. She encouraged me multiple times as well through my own personal struggles.
Perhaps with a lighter heart, I can share more about this woman who led me to the Lord and overcame tremendous challenges. For now, Lord, thank You for blessing me with a mom who walked in God’s grace, love and peace–one encouraging those traveling down a dark night of the soul.
