Aunt Mary Going Home
My mom's husband Jim has a sister named Mary. I haven't really gotten to see much of her since her son died and she moved. It has me reflecting on Mom's death as I know what surely her close family feels at this time. I pray for peace and comfort. I pray for her to have no pain. I hope that this transition to Heaven come swiftly for her. I thank God that we who believe do not die. Our bodies do, but our Spirits go home. Here was only temporary. It is the only home I have come to know, but deep inside, that God-shaped-hole reminds me there is somewhere different. Better. No more loss. All that seemed lost here, my loved ones, will be waiting for me there.... in my Savior's arms I shall weep no more, for I will have all I need.
