Ever read this chapter? Overwhelming, isn't it? Well I'm here to tell you it CAN be done...IN CHRIST...of course. I personally know one in the flesh. My sweet loving spiritual mentor. My Mother-in-Law...Suzanne Hymer. Today, September 5, 2014 she lies in bed at her daughters house taking her last breaths. They say a matter of hours or days...She's still being a Godly example as she dies...teaching us the 'right' way to die. She is smiling and content. She never has a mean word for anybody. Anybody who's met her immediately falls in love with her. Anybody in her presence is in God's presence. The Holy Spirit Lives within her, no question about it, it's felt by all. No, she's not perfect. But...I want to be like her when I grow up...
Mom, we love you! We're going to miss you! But we all know you are going to be in a much happier and sweeter place.
Galatians 6 fits today...Spiritual ones restore one in spirit of gentleness, keep from temptation. Bear one another's burdens, fulfill the law of Christ. Let the one who is taught the word share all good things who those who teaches..Do not grow weary while doing good, in due season we will reap if we do not lose heart. As we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.
This is just a snap shot of Mom's life. God YOU are a HOLY GOD! Thank you for taking care of our precious Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Wife...your precious child!
