She's just over in the GLORY Land "a poem for a sister who passed away"

Updated on May 8, 2014

This little poem is for a sister who was diagnosed with cancer from my church and has gone on to meet the Lord May 7th 2014. I woke up to a call around 11:35 pm to hear the sad news but as Christians we know we are pilgrims and this land we sojourn in is not our HOME. We are merely a passing through, my precious sister is now with the KING of glory out of the arms of sickness, pains, sorrows and agony. I rejoice with her to know that she has been a wonderful sister and has dedicated her life to Christ for many years. Even without children or a husband she sacrificed her entire life for JESUS. I know heaven can only have a special place for someone so dear and beautiful.

Even though we believe in God

even though we know where you

have gone, when you slipped away

today from this world.

As mortals we will still miss you sister

Lorraine , we are sad to know that we

won't see you anymore until we to

leave this sinful world.

Your pew will be empty and each time

we pass by it we'll remember there you

once sat or stood. I am sadden but yet

HAPPY you no longer have to suffer

that horrid disease. But is passed from

death unto life.

I am sorry i did not get to visit you

I already made plans to come this

Saturday but sure things did not

work out my way. Because God called

you a few hours before and you just

had to go.

I dreamt you died last Sunday so i

was not surprised at the news, that

you had passed away. To God be the glory

my sister i know God can only have a

special place for a person like you.

Enjoy it until I to come on home

to abide with you on that beautiful

      Oh, what a beautiful hub of His truths and your love for your dear sister in Christ. I am sorry about the loss of your dear friend and as you have so wisely written, we can be comforted in knowing she is with our sweet Jesus now. From your beautiful written words of her, she sounds like an angel and now she is among them.

      I know it is sad for you baby to lose a friend (and especially being a sister in the church) but as hard as it is for us to know her life now is so much better our faith in the word gives us that assurance. It won't be long til you see her again...and maybe you can introduce her to me!
