sunset over the Turtle River
Although I haven't said much about it in recent weeks, many of you may remember that my Mom is very ill, and has been under Hospice care since last fall.
She has been on quite a roller coaster ride these past several months, but now her days are drawing to a close. I have spent most of July and all of August so far at my parent's house in SC, where I have attempted to help, encourage and comfort my Mom and Dad during these difficult days.
Now, it appears that my precious mother's life on this earth is almost over. She is more than ready to meet her Savior face to face!! For her the words of Paul ring true - "To live is Christ and to die is gain." (Philippians 1:21)
While we can't imagine life without her, we are so eager for her suffering to be over and her spirit to be freed from this body of death! Her passage has been and continues to be way more agonizing physically, emotionally and spiritually than I ever imagined!
The following song has been special to all of us during this heart-wrenching time. It has been the cry of my Mother's heart and been our song during the dark hours. Please pray for my dear Mom as she completes her passage.
