|Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. Psalms 116:15 Background Song "Someday" written by Lynn Rush ( Trenesa Kellogg & Christ Apostolic Temple Choir-Des Moines, IA)|
Dec24 2012 marks one year since you were called to your
Heavenly Home. I miss you a lot but I have the comfort in
Knowing you are at peace now. God knew best.
"I have been missing you so today. Really thinking about last Thanksgiving and the great time we had just chilling as a family and all your good sweet potato pies, lemon cakes, and pound cakes. Mostly just us sisters and Mommie chilling and getting to love up on one another before everything went haywire. Love you Lynn Rush"
"Just going to get lightbulbs for the house started the tingling of a tiny bell within my heart. Though this act may not seem significant, a savouring fragrance surrounded me. I am convinced that great love is shown through small acts that spiral outwardly and touch us. I miss those thoughtful deeds done from the heart. Love "Mommie""
"Lynn received salvation and the gift of eternal life through the anointed power of the spoken preached word of God. Luke 24:47"And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations..." I share this gospel because "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation. Family I love you and share this news with all Mommie"
"My prayer is that all of us will make it and be able to tell the story up in glory. Nothing else on this earth matters if I do not get to see God in peace. I am so thankful the Lord saved Lynn before she faced death. The Lord is soon to come and holiness is a must! Be ready, time is winding up. Praise God for the testimony we have through the life she lived. Love "Mommie""
"Just remembering and missing Lynn so much! But it's okay considering how blessed we all are to have had her in our lives. Now she has a home on high and shares a peace and joy we all are longing and searching for. We can never experience such victory on this side of glory but one day...If we live right we'll share her testimony and her joy. Love "Mommie""
"So many people have her memory etched in their hearts. Lynn will always be remembered for her leadership, forth-rightness and most of all for her unselfish, giving spirit. As the days past tears still are flowing because we all miss her so. But knowing she will spend an eternity with the God who loves her so much gives comfort to those who trust in the LORD . I love you still - "Mommie"
"Last night I passed a picture on our bookshelf of Lynn & Bobbie. They both were so small, so beautiful, young & seemed so whole. I smiled as I remembered how safe they were & how well we tried to care for & love both of them. Well years have passed & life has dealt us some deathening blows; but one thing is for certain. God is very much in control and he loves and cares for us all- Mommie"
"Man I don't come on here a lot but every once in a while I need to. To see the words of love and express my love for you. A lot has changed since that day. We will never be the same. EVER!!! Love you Lynn Rush."
"Today I see your reflection in the life of your sister, Bobbie. In summing up what I see it is fair to say both of you provide a model of strength and faith for all of us. You show us that life is not to be lived in fear but rather purely and reverently in honor and glory to our wonderful and mighty all powerful and all knowing God. I have been blessed by your lives! Much love - Mommie"
"Reading these notes that go out help soothe the aches and to dry the tears that flow after losing such a precious child. As we reflect on the joy and laughter she brought to all of our lives don't forget we must also cross this "jordan". And every moment we live here on earth we will carry with us. Time is short and we all have an appointment with eternity - Love ya'll Mommie"
""I DREAMT" I often slept at your side when you were weak and tired, dreaming of a day when you'd awake with strength and tire no more. I also dreamt one day that healing would prevail and lock away your tears and pain behind a huge steel door. Lo' while I slept and dreamt of us winning and joyfully telling your story, you woke me to say "this dream is real, for I live with God in glory."
"We are feeling the void of her being gone. She was a true friend, daughter, sister, cousin and most of all Saint of God. Wonderfully felt is the evidence that she lived a life that touched so many of us. Lynn acted out of pure TLC in all that she did. Eyes are filled with tears not because she is lost but rather because we miss her so much. Your love remains a part of us - Always "Mommie""
"Lynn Rush I dreamt you were still here with us. We were laughing & talking in somebody's bedroom just like we used to. I really miss you girl. I still hear your voice calling me "Stacy Mae", still hear your laugh, I still cry at the thought of not seeing you again on 'this side', my heart is still hurting.... But I'm so glad you're with Jesus! Love you, Stacy Mae"
"From the days of your early childhood you were the boss, You were determined to help out even before your head reached the top of our kitchen table. One day you set out to serve the milk but the floor really got most of the milk you thought you were pouring for your sisters. No matter, you set a standard of helping and giving. You talked a lot but you also gave a lot. We miss you! Mommie"
"Not long ago you left us to find peace, comfort and rest. But sometimes it seems like you have been gone for a long long time. I miss you so much! Yesterday, Bobbie and I were working on some tings that are linked to "y'alls" life. Just a reminder to us of how you will always be a part of our lives and your precious memory we always will keep and cherish until.... Love "Mommie""
"I shed a tear this morning just because I miss you.
I sighed in loneliness, longing and yearning for your presence.
Then I remembered you have a new and glorious home on high
So I retreat from the pain to grasp the joy, knowing God's hand now holds you nigh. Love "Mommie""
""Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints." Psalm 116:15 - Lord Jesus, I thank you for giving Lynn the gift of eternal life through your plan of salvation. "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." Romans 1:16 "Mommie""
"While we were traveling this past week I thought about Lynn and all the good times we shared. She loved going on trips. It was so wonderful having Bobbie with me this time and to see the healthy affect the trip we just took had on her. I am thankful for the hope and peace and contenment God has allowed us to share. Sickness can't claim all the glory for Lynn or Bobbie but God can. Mommie"
"Our pastor says every death has a purpose. Lynn focused on proclaiming truth to everyone she spoke with in health, in illness and unto death. - a mirror of our leader now a treasure of our Lord. As I reflect on the purpose of Lynn's life I can build on that purpose for the duration of my life. Lord, please allow my life to mirror our great leader and to glorify you in all that I do!"
"Looking towards heaven for strength. A lot of people say to me you take such good care of your sisters. I immediately correct them and say just returning the favour. You took good care of me and my other sisters and even Mommie and Daddy. When we had kids you just jumped in and took over. ( Boss Lady) I had to remind you who his Momma was if I had to discipline him. But it didn't work LOL"
"Always thinking of you, missing you, and loving you. Remembering so many transitions we've endured together. Life is not the same without you. When we spend time as a family there is a huge gaping hole in our hearts. You were the center of the family. The light of our lives. The best big sister anyone could ask for. I am grateful that my son got to be spoiled by you and has your" BIG EYES""
"Lynn was so full of love.She lived her life loving all of us and she left here giving herself in love as the big sister - the boss. As a child I read about heros and "she-ros". As a mother I saw such proof in my daughter, Lynn; living for her God and her family. She was not the oldest or richest of us yet none of us can say we gave or loved more than she did. I really miss Lynn, Mommie"
"Member Dat Time-Member Dat Time when Lynn said she didn't know where the library was at Lawrence North HS (the school we went to & graduated from). Lynn was brillant w/wout the library. Lynn you were so funny & the things you would say always made me either laugh or think. Always thoughtful & thought provoking. I love, cherish, & miss you. Death cant take the love we have. Rushgirls4ever!"
"The reality that you've left me brings pain and tears but I thank God for the memories I've gained through the years. Your presence lingers in my heart and your love is embedded in my mind. I treasaure the joy & laughter you brought and the spirit you had was so grand and so kind. I long and I cry but I don't say good-bye cause I 'll join you one day in our home in the sky. "Mommie""
"Bobbie just reminded me of the time when we were out late at Perkins. We were talking about school. Lynn said " Monkey's are reptiles." Me and Bobbie were like" What"? She always gave us one we laughed so hard we made the waitress laugh. She argued us down because she was convinced. We used to have a ball. There is a hole in our circle but we still love you dearly Lynn Lynn."
"I just wanted to reflect back on all those wonderful times we had together, traveling over the past few years. From Indy to Cleveland, KY, Atlanta, Cinncinati & even Polk City IA. One night Lynn & I ended up in front of a pond right outside of Cleveland OH. Well with God's protection we survived, stayed in a beautiful suite & just hung out with Niecy & Sydney. Many days of fun! Mommie"
"My sadness is overshadowed with the assurance I have that you rest in God's presence. Your sicknesses, though many, He indeed has healed. So I'm striving to live my life for Jesus and to stand in His presence someday in peace. When I get home I know all my tears will also be wiped away & I will "tell my story up in Glory". In my heart you remain, Lynn. Mommie ( Mother Beleta)"
"I'm so glad Love abides forever! There is a love I will always have and cherish as a most beautiful "keepsake" towards my oldest daughter, Lynn. Today she would have given me a teddybear, with a beautiful card and some candy. She never missed an opportunity to show me the utmost love and respect. I know as much as I love her the Lord loves her best. I miss "Lynn Rush" Love always "Mommie""
"I miss your best feature,your eyes.I was looking at our senior pictures. You unselfishly shared your session w/me.We graduated together "92".I remember how you took me to Thomas Whitfield's concert w/ you & how I asked you to be my maid of honor. You know you were sick but tried to make it through my weddings. You had to go to the hospital but didnt want to miss my day. MyLynnLynn"
"I think about you everyday.When I first wake up I have to remember that I can't run upstairs to talk to you about a guy or a new song I wrote or to ask you how you are doing.Today I had a duh moment, I was thiking I really need to talk to Lynn.I can't seem to find her.Man your red hair and your laugh,The way you told it like it was.Now when I hug Bobbie I am hugging you too.I love you!!."
"Today I look back on each day we shared and realize everyday God gave us together is full of warm and endearing memories. You were born to be cherished and loved by many and everyone of us profited from your strength and genuineness. I strive to make heaven my home as I am assured that you are safe in the arms of Jesus. So I long to meet you one day and share your eternal victory. Mommie"
"It has truly been my honor to be a part of Lynn's life. Your openness as a family to share her with me is a gift that I am forever grateful for receiving. I am remembering Lynn calling herself "the bossy one" and giving encouragment to Bobbi that she is a strong person. Also her love for Markie. You sisters are indeed special. And Beleta you are a testament to a nurturing spirit."
"I remember when we had family and friends service at old TV and everybody had to invite somebody. Lynn was calling people to come and getting in contact with them and she started cussing them out and telling them God been too good to them. The tactics were wrong but she ended up having the most people come. Just Comedy! The one and only Lynn Rush"
"We really miss you Lynn Rush.I remember when Lynn was thirteen and she snuck off with the car because Mommie and Daddy was taking too long. We all got in and went from Aspen Way to Zayres and got caught by Granny. That was the beginning of our adventures in sneaking away with the car. Of course Granny called Mommie and we got in trouble that day. But we just figured other ways to escape."
"Missing Lynn so much. I am going to the grocery store today. If Lynn were here she would be totally stressed by the prospect that I am going to the store. My girls have the nerve to think that I am cheap. Can you imagine that! Anyway I made a list and marked "no generics" on most items. I even made out a menu. Lynn would be so proud of me. I'm trying to hold it together for ya - Mommie"
"Just thinking about Lynn today. I know she is present with the Lord, although absent in the body. There are so many memories of her in my heart and in our home. Lynn loved this home and worked to make it a place of love and comfort. I miss her so much but I am thankful for the memories from the day she was born until she went home to be with the Lord. I will always love Lynn, - Mommie."
"I'm thankful for the memories I have of you. It's still hard to believe you're really gone. I love & miss you Lynn Rush...that's all 4 now
"The sound of her name, makes me smile. The tears that I shed for her make me smile. The songs that she wrote make me smile. The life that she lived makes me smile. Her soul being saved makes me smile and the love that she gave makes me smile. Her laughter and strength make me smile.Her joy in eternity makes me smile. To think that God gave her to all of us makes me smile. Love, Mommie."
"Just thinking of how much I miss Lynn. She was such a special person and a beautiful daughter. Lynn placed the needs of the family before her own needs. She not only talked about love but she put her love into action, always looking to do something for someone else. Lynn's life was about loving and she showed her love for Christ by continually loving others. I Love Ya 4ever "Mommie""
"Cuz I'm your sister and always for ya andI don't know what I'd ever do without you From the beginning to the end
You've always been here by my sideSo I'll call you my best friend
Through the good times and the bad ones Whether I lose or if I win
I know one thing that never changes andThat's you as my best friend"
"Lynn was a precious jewel given 2 us by God. Though God extended her life by at least 25 years a part of me didn't want 2 let her go. She was so giving and always sacrificed for her family, 4 the last 12 months she suffered many added afflictions, yet we had some very special moments. Thank U Lord 4 the priviledge to know, love and care for her until the end. I "sho" do miss her - Mommie"
"I wish you was still here. I have to remind myself in the morning that you are gone and it hurts a lot. At first it just felt like a bad dream but I know it is reality. I love you forever. Besides I don't got nobody to talk about these people with. Yes we talked about y'all.(lol). I miss your big eyes but at least I can look at my son and see you."
"Remember the Lord has the key to death and hell and He conquered death and the grave while Lynn was living and even more important when she passed from death to eternal life. Ps 24:9 Lift up your heads O ye gates; even lift them up ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of host, he is the King of glory. Lynn is a winner!"
"I was listening 2 my pastor, Bishop Jeremiah Reed during an AON broadcast as the Lord used him 2 bring 2 my rememberance a scripture from Psalms 24: 9 - 8. Each time the Lord raised Lynn up from her bed of affliction during her life this scripture served as a reminder that The Lord was/is in control and that He is a great and mighty conquerer of death. See the tribute above - From Mommie"
"Happy Birthday LynnLynn. Now everybody is calling you LynnLynn. That is a Lynn and Niecy thing they wouldn't understand. I love you sunshine & I miss you so bad I don't know what to do with myself sometime. Sometimes I forget and go upstairs to pop in and ask you what you think about this or that. I have to remind myself that my compass (you) are not here physically. See u n heaven;)"
"Happy 40th Birthday in memory of the life you spent here on earth.
What a beautiful Saint of God! What a special gift from God! What a champion! We miss Lynn so much but we will carry on this fight both spiritually and naturally. From all of us, Bobbie, Niecy, Trina, Markie, Sydney, Elder Brewer, Daddy Butts & especially from me. - Mommie"
"Hey Lynn-Lynn this is your daddy. I wanted to wish you a HAPPY BIRTH/SOUL DAY in your new home with Christ!
I Love You and I Miss You"
""Member Dat Time"
"Member Dat Time" when Lynn cussed everybody out to invite them to church & had the most visitors.
"Member Dat Time" when Lynn Rush rang the Sunday
School bell (weekly) 30 minute before church so we could go to Buddys & Uncle Hershell & Sis Davis would chase us back to True Victory down 3302 N. Arsenal. Niecy Rush"
"Lynn you were always a pleasure to be around and a "Rock" in our family. I am going to miss the family news- you were Mike Ahern the second. Love you dearly Aunt Jerry"
"Hi family: I was reflecting back on the many "works" of "Lynn Rush". She was so full of life and never stopped being busy and bossey. The punch-line is she was always working for the good of the whole - she was so unselfish! Well ok Lynn "stole" my car at the age of 12 to take all of her sisters for a ride but after all she had to entertain them. It was her job. She was "Ma - tha" Mommie"
"I just want to ask a throw back question. Who remembers old TV when Lynn tied the soprano sections choir robes together? We used have a ball. Me and Lynn was always catching stuff on fire with our science experiments. We could talk Niecy into it but Bobbie was always looking at all of us as her underlings. Rush Girls forever! Love you Lynn"
"Big Cousin Lynn
I love you so much. Your strength and happiness are two things that everyone in this family will continue to look up to you for. I remember you singing "You are the Sunshine" and laughing sitting in Papa's chair laughing with me. I miss you so much, but and you continue to encourage me everyday. I love you, Tiffany."
"I was deeply saddened to hear about the loss of a true soldier. I have rarely seen anyone perservere through intense and oftentimes excruciating pain the way she did. Lynn was truly a gem and will forever be missed. To the family, I offer you my most heartfelt sympathy as you grieve your loss."
"I was sadden to hear that Lynn had transitioned! She was always a warm spirit and a bright light. She knew how to make you smile no matter her pain. I was reflecting on my life a few days ago and spent about 15 minutes telling my eldest daughter about Lynn. My heart is heavy but I praise God that she is at rest with the Master. My prayers are with the family! See you on the other side Lynn"
"Lynn I don't have alot of moments to speak about, but I will say this you and Bobbie have the strength of Job. To be able to weather storms that I don't think I could have. I love you and wish I was able to spend more time with you. To my other cousins aunt and uncle Bobbie, Trina, Neicey, Aunt Beleeta, Uncle Lionel. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matt 5:4 God Ble"
"Lynn Rush, my heart is so sad & missing u so much, words can't even express. But I rejoice in knowing you are in God's loving hands, singing & shouting your VICTORY! I love you girl, my cousin, songwriting partner, sister, friend.
"I was reading the Bible the other night and was comforted when I read " to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord." I love you and already missin you. Auntie Barbara"
""Joy cometh in the morning" Lynn's morning arrived amidst the tears shed within the gallows of my soul. Yet God allows the ray of hope to warm my heart because I know she rest with him, now whole. Oh yes I miss her and I own a void no word or song for now has filled. So I stand in God's power assured that through his grace I will find peace and my hurt will be healed. (Mommie) Beleta"
