God did as I asked Him to do, for the past few days! He lovingly reached down and picked my precious sister up in His loving arms and carried her to Heaven to be with Him eternally! As her sons and her grandson and I surrounded her bedside, Jerry prayed a beautiful prayer, thanking God for her and what she had been to all of us, especially her sons and their families. He asked God to take her and he told Ede (as we called her) “Everything is alright, you can go, Mama” and she took her last breath! We all had told her goodbye! I told her I loved her and I would see her again soon!
This song came to my mind. Kirk Talley wrote and sung it for a friends wife, who had died in her sleep unexpectedly one night!
She went to sleep one night. Never here to awake again,
But she knew it was alright, between her and Him,
Then she awoke in Heaven’s Courtyard, free from pain within,
The angels took her by the hand and said “Come on in”.
Serenaded by Angels, Up to the throne
Serenade by angels, Finally at home
Surrounded by praises, to the King,
Welcome to Paradise, the angels did sing!
This verse is my testimony:
When I close my eyes at night, I try to imagine
that city of crystal lights, waiting for me,
But my eyes cannot conceive, So, I’ll continue to believe
‘Til I’m transported there,Where I will be
Today Edith has already met her Savior face to face. She has already been reunited with Joe and all our family and friends waiting for her. All my sisters and brothers have their confidante again. She is listening to that Hallelujah Choir singing praises to our King, (I’ll bet you she has even joined them already). No more pain or suffering and Mama and Daddy have a wide grin on their faces as they hear her singing once again in that beautiful alto voice! Oh! How homesick it makes me to join them but I must stay a little longer until the Lord decides it’s my time!
Keep watching and waiting for me! I’ll be there in “JUST A LITTLE WHILE”.
