My Beautiful Children ,It's my first anniversary in Heaven. A year ago today, the angels came along. They took me so gently, they handled me with care. As I closed my eyes, to rest at last, a warm feeling flooded my soul. The smile you seen upon my face, when you looked at me~ It was pure joy, that you did see, when I parted from this world~ I heard every word you said to me, and I knew every time you were there~ But when I seen the Angels appear, and they released me from my pain~ A smile upon my face you seen, was absolutely there. They took me home, to God's Throne. I now live where the Angels tread. And God's Kingdom is so beautiful. nothing but happiness, and a light of love is all around. The beauty is so perfect, all made by God's loving hands. Please don't be angry at God's plan, for he set me free, when he picked me. No more pain, fears, nor tears. I'm home, I'm happy, and I'm free. Please don't be so sad my dear. I know you miss me very much, the load you carry is very tough. The tears you shed, so many over me. But you need to know that I'm okay, I'm happy & I'm free. It's time to carry on my dear, and live your life with happiness. God will help you through your pain, if you stay loyal while you remain. I know your journey in grief is tough, but for you to heal, this is a must. I'll always love you, and I'll linger near to help you through this earthly land. Someday we'll be together again, but for now my dear you must go on. And when your time on earth is up, an Angel, I will send for you. To swoop you up and deliver you to me. "YES" Someday together we'll always be. Love Always Mamma
Love Always Mamma..(Published in Home News Tribune on Nov. 28, 2016). ALWAYS & FOREVER MA...UNTIL AGAIN
The Death of Lazarus
1At this time a man named Lazarus was sick. He lived in Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2(Mary, whose brother Lazarus was sick, was later to anoint the Lord with perfume and wipe His feet with her hair.) 3So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one You love is sick.”
4When Jesus heard this, He said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”
5Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6Yet when He heard that Lazarus was sick, He stayed where He was for two days. 7Finally, He said to the disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.”
8“Rabbi,” they replied, “the Jews just tried to stone You, and You are going back there?”
9Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? If anyone walks in the daytime, he will not stumble, because he sees by the light of this world. 10But if anyone walks at night, he will stumble, because he has no light.”
11After He had said this, He told them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I am going there to wake him up.”
12His disciples said, “Lord, if he is sleeping, he will get better.” 13They thought that Jesus was talking about actual sleep, but He was speaking about the death of Lazarus.
14So Jesus told them plainly, “Lazarus is dead, 15and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.”
16Then Thomas called Didymus said to his fellow disciples, “Let us also go, so that we may die with Him.”
Jesus Comforts Martha and Mary
17When Jesus arrived, He found that Lazarus had already spent four days in the tomb. 18Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, a little less than two milesa away, 19and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them in the loss of their brother. 20So when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet Him; but Mary stayed at home.
21Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. 22But even now I know that God will give You whatever You ask Him.”
23“Your brother will rise again,” Jesus told her.
24Martha replied, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
25Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies. 26And everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”
27“Yes, Lord,” she answered, “I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.”
28After Martha had said this, she went back and called her sister Mary aside to tell her, “The Teacher is here and is asking for you.” 29When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to Him.
30Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met Him. 31When the Jews who were in the house consoling Mary saw how quickly she got up and went out, they followed her, supposing she was going to the tomb to mourn there. 32When Mary came to Jesus and saw Him, she fell at His feet and said, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.”
33When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come with her also weeping, He was deeply moved in spiritb and troubled. 34“Where have you laid him?” He asked.
“Come and see, Lord,” they answered.
"November 28 ,2016 will be a year without Mamma but also a year closer to
Mamma... Since that sad day, when one we loved was called away.
God took her home—It was His will: Within our hearts she liveth still."
