Our Precious Mom Slipped into Eternity

5:24:14 Family Picture 2

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.


About Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering

Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering shares the true story about a sudden family tragedy. As author of the book to be published in the summer of 2014, the true account tells of my sister being rear ended by a drunk driver. She barely survives the high speed crash being left to live as a quadriplegic. Written from a brother's perspective, the manuscript shares the heartfelt story of ongoing physical and emotional pain experienced by both victim and family. Only through God's grace can a family survive such a tragedy!
