Remembering Mother Corbin

Updated on October 16, 2014

I remember her spirit of gentleness, and kindness

Where grace found its place to shine,

A meek and quiet soul always patient

The fruits of the Spirit flowed through her life

Just like living waters refreshing us

With the peace she moved in,

O give praise and thanks to God

For giving us a memory,

We all have our own to remind us

Of all the joy we have experienced,

She holds a special place in our hearts

Mothers do that!

They transcend their own homes, and

Secure their places deep within the lives of others,

I was always reminded of my own dear mother

As she and I would sit and talk,

Her birthday one day before me-ma's,

I loved her from the beginning, and

I love her with no end,

She left her print upon my heart, and

I thank God for our paths having crossed, and

All the good times we shared at Church,

At the love feasts, at dinners,

where we would often break bread, and

Laugh in childlike splendor,

Koinonia fellowship so sweet, and wealthy,

I thank God for sharing her with me, and

Now, I pray comfort and strength for all the myriads of people

Who love her too, and who she has undoubtedly touched, and

Enriched by her regal presence,

Some have entertained angels, we have been blessed by a queen

Until that great day when we meet again,

On the other side of the river

We will all miss her yet, we are consoled,

By the thought of her and the special memories

That are ours to keep and not even death can take them away!

Our memories of Mother Corbin are the only treasures we have left

Give God praise for giving us our memories,

They are like pillows they comfort our hearts, and

We gain strength in remembering all the good.

***Thank You Heavenly Father for Mother Corbin's life***

      Thanks for dropping by "whonunuwho" and "Ericdierker" and commenting. A very special lady passed on and my heart wanted to speak and express what she meant to me.
