“Well, Mama … this day is almost over.
It’s been one of mixed and untamed emotions for me. Hard to believe it was 1 year ago today that you moved out … Left your earthly house – in its weakened condition and needing repairs – and got a brand new one in Heaven’s land.
You had told me that it was time to move on … and how you longed to see Dad and your folks again. I think you knew that the little family you were leaving behind would be okay, and not far behind you. We’re doin’ alright – but we sure do miss you!
In conversation with Pastor McSpadden this evening, we recalled your home-going celebration service – where he so graciously joined our family in song. We had sung,
“Soon And Very Soon, We are Going to See the King.”
And in tonight’s service, we sang it again. Wow! What a reminder of the hope we have of being together again, some day not too distant.
So, I will say. ‘Good night for now, Mom.’
Oh, and I’ve been wondering if they have a Hammond B-3 organ up there? If they do, and you’re playing it, Heaven is probably rockin’ tonight!”
