Peace at last!

Yesterday was one of the busiest days I have had in my life...and I didn't even leave the house!  I spent a better part of the day on and off the phone with four people.  The most important call came last night as I had the blessing and privilege of telling my mother "I love you" for the last time.

It is now so surreal;
I am so far away.
Distance, though, it disappears
when I bow to pray!
My mother is no longer living
in this dying place;
she's living, though, in countless hearts
due His amazing grace!
And she is living in a Place
where she is not in pain!
No dialysis...
no schedules to maintain!
Her body now is perfect-
she is completely whole;
and I will see her once again
when He receives my soul!

This day--it is so different;
the first in many ways;
the first day of my life without
my mother and her praise;
Her first day of Paradise
for all eternity!
I will join her at His call
and, once more, we will be!

The later yesterday became, the longer it seemed to go on.  I thank God for that.  I'm sure mom was asking God for something else!  However, at about 9:30 last night, she obtained that for which we all strive: to be present with Jesus and completely healed!
I love you, momma,
