November 15, 2012
Today is the day the LORD called my mother HOME to be with HIM in HEAVEN, in 1983. It was a beautiful Autmunm day, visiting my mother in St.Joseph's hospital. It was a beautiful Autumn season that yr., with beautiful colorful displays of Maple trees outside the hospital, lining the sidewalk. I will never forget those 'last moments' of her life on earth, as I stood by her hospital bed, holding her hand, as she slipped from earth into a Heavenly eternity !! What a comfort & joy it is, to know we will see our loved one again, if they loved the LORD. GOD'S WORD promises that we will see them again for eternity in Heaven. Psalm 14:2 The LORD looks down from Heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand & any who 'seek GOD'. PSALM 15 -the Character of Those Who May Dwell with the LORD.  Revelation 21: 1 Now I saw a 'new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more. Then I John, saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from GOD, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. verse 4 - And GOD shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be 'no more pain', for the former things have passed away. Verse 5 - Then HE who sat on the Throne said "Behold I make all things new" And HE said to me, "Write for these words are true & faithful". Verses 9 thru 27 of chap. 21 of Revelation speak of the New Jerusalem - the 'new Heaven on earth'.
Prayer in the 'Garden of Gethsemane'

Autumn is the season of trees shedding their leaves after a beautiful color display, bringing forth the beauty of the winter season. Every living thing on earth dies & leaves at some point in time, but only 'one' never leaves us, that is GOD himself, that is HIS promise to us.

Hydrangeas bring memories of my mother & her flowers.
In my garden are many Hydrangeas, it is in the garden where
we are reminded once again of the 'agonizing prayer' of CHRIST'
as HE knew his death at Calvary was very close in time. HE
cried to the Father, "Not my will, but Thine be done oh LORD,
as it is in Heaven".
