Saying Good-Bye

SAYING GOOD-BYE

2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Someone has said that only two things are certain in our lives; death and taxes. When you minister to senior adults you learn early and often there are going to be sad Good-Byes. Death is not normally a welcome guest. It inflicts sorrow and difficult memories for those that it touches. Recently one of the faithful ladies of our ministry went home to be with her Lord. She had suffered through a couple of years of ALS also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Until she lost her ability to communicate she displayed a vibrant faith in God. She was always very upbeat. Her posts son Facebook encouraged many. As I stood before several hundred people at her funeral I was able to share some of these truths with those who attended. Saying good-bye at a time like this is often difficult. This time was different. A gracious lady had fought a valiant fight and who had been confined to her bed and wheel chair then as her daughter said, “She stood up and walked into the presence of her Lord”. Good-Bye Moleta !
