“R.I.P!”… The same yesterday, today, and forever.

“So when I get to WHERE I’M GOING, that for you, there will be no shadow of a doubt or an occasion of worry.  When now you see me and then you don’t… KNOW… that when I am not here with you, I am with Him [in Great Love]~ there.  I have little to tell you about my life, but HIS life will take an eternity to share.”  So…

Rest In Peace!

I was flooded on this morning with so many emotions that I thought I would [or even should] die.  No, not in a negative sense [you can’t threaten me with Heaven 😉 ]… but rather, a divine conclusion.  And it was at this point that I felt compelled to give you my obituary.

But first, what it isn’t!

I can tell you from where and who I have come from, my relations, my associations, what colleges I attended, where I worked, who I married, who I gave birth to, my churches & charities, and where I am now.  But to me… it’s not enough.

I could allude to many of my successes and failures through the illustration of my life endeavors, and tell you of how I persevered and where my priorities lied.  But to me… it’s not enough.

I can tell you of the people I loved, the sights I’ve seen, the places I served, the things I cherished.  But to me… it’s not enough.

I can even leave a trail of how God caused all things to work together for good in my life, His grace and unmerited favor for me.  But to me, just telling you… is just not enough.

Throughout many seasons, places, and areas of my life the Lord has impressed upon me this statement… “I can’t stop there!”   And with that being said… neither can I.

Now, I give you… me

I was born, raised, educated, employed, married, gave birth twice, and currently live in NNY.  I am ecstatic with the blessings and gifts that God has given me, to include the good, the bad, and the sometimes seemingly ugly.  All have matured, stretched, refined, restored and transformed me to the person I am [or was] for this day… now & forever called, justified, glorified, HIS.  If you look at me, having summed up my life, I pray you see that I lived extravagantly where it mattered most.  And if you remember about me that I was too passionate about Jesus or spoke too much of Him to you, my apologies… for you.  I know I am right where I am supposed to be… now.

Beyond this, I look to you and ask…

“Has my faith gone before me and announced the Who & What I’d worked for?”
“Do you know Who I had chosen to spend the rest of my ‘long life’ with?”
“Had you witnessed the fruit of my labor and thanked God for His divine intervention?”
“Had my love been loud enough that you heard & know that you’re the LOVED ONE?”
“Had I told you with volume the blessing you had brought to my life and how I treasured this good part in my heart?”
“And had I told you all these things in certainty, giving the credit to the true source [Jesus] of my inspiration… His due?”

“What exactly have I impressed upon you with regard to the HIM who sent me?”
“What difference have I made… in the matter of what matters most?”
“And where ‘you and I’ fit in with Him, have I stressed this with the utmost importance?”


So when I get to WHERE I’M GOING, that for you, there will be no shadow of a doubt or an occasion of worry.  When now you see me and then you don’t… KNOW… that when I am not here with you, I am ‘in Love’ ~ there.  I have little to tell you about my life, but HIS life will take an eternity to share…

To my children & loved ones…


If you miss me, and when it is your time (& God’s)… you know where to find me.  I’m with Jesus!

 “I do” will & bequeath all I am and have to YOU!

27 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.  Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” … Jesus 
[John 14:27]

  R.I.P. ♥

This post began on May 11, 2012, and although it will not be completed until the day of Christ Jesus, it begins again for me each day and continues… until that day!

“I rest in peace!”

If you do not know the God I serve, or even serve another, I ask you…  “Where will you go when you find yourself at the end of you?  What does your self-fulfilling dream or prophecy have in store for you?  And even now, what has your God done for you lately?  When you are no longer present, what will your absence say?  And for all those you leave behind, how will they know you loved them enough to leave a legacy of hope & assurance to an eternal future together in Heaven… & will they know you rest in peace?”

If there is still breath in you, it’s not too late…
