i will rise

Just returned home from IL late last night. As I sat on the bed weary from my travels, Scott shared with me a song that reminded him of my mom. He mentioned wondering what it must have been like for her on the night she passed...to be in a sedated state...not really knowing what was going on...and then to hear Jesus call her name.

He called for her.

She arose and followed.

Tears, Tish... Praise the Lord that your mama is in such a better place, with her Savior. No more sorrow, no more pain. How I look forward to the day that he calls my name, too! Hug, my friend.

What an awesome song, and an amazing thought. Just like in the Pilgrim's Progress book... I know that she found solid ground under her feet, and crossed that river and found Home.

Love you,
R
