Jesus and I (A poem by Ruth Jones 1999)

Shared by Karen Gillespie on May 2, 2020
Sometimes I get so weary, as I travel down life's road
My burdens seem so heavy, but I try to bear the load
I try to pick my feet up, and make myself go on
That's when I call on Jesus, I just can't make it on my own
He seems to gently say to me," reach out and take my hand; and I will take you to a place I call the Promised Land"
"There are no heavy burdens; no heavy loads to bear; for I have taken them away from all my children there"
So I reach out, and take his hand, and right away I see
I'll make it through another day, for he'll be there for me

Mom,

This is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do - to say goodbye. I feel like a piece of my heart is missing. But as it says in Philippians 4:13 “I can do all this through Him who gives me strength”. I have so many memories to hold on to. We were blessed to have you for 90 years. I know they weren’t always easy years for you but you made the best of them by God’s grace. You and daddy didn’t have a lot of material things to give us but you gave us many gifts that can not be measured by this world. The gift of love being the most important but I have to mention the gift of music. The legacy of music you and daddy have passed on to us, your children, your grandchildren and great children is something words can not explain but will remain with us through every generation to come. I thank you for that. So I say goodbye for now but one day I will see you again in Heaven. I love you now and will love you forever. My sweet mama. 
Love,
    Judy

I am the oldest grandchild of Ruth Jones. I am so glad my last memory of you is at your 90th birthday party! You really enjoyed it. You got to visit with a lot of your family, sang songs, blew out your candles and opened many gifts. Seeing your smile was heart warming. You were always so so sweet and had a funny spunk about you. You loved your kitty cats and boy did they love you!!!  You loved the lord so I know you are in heaven singing sings with Papaw and Uncle Johnny. I will keep you in my heart always. I will miss you dearly. I love you Mamaw❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
