Said Goodbye to a Precious Friend...

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Greetings my Friend's,

Sorry for not posting until now, I have been in bed ever since I got home from a very dear friend/mentor's Memorial Service. A very dear friend passed into the presence of her Lord and Savior January 1st. She was 85 years young. We were friend's for over 20+ years.

When I first met her it was at church, I was new in the Prayer Ministry, prior to that I had always been in Children's ministry, I felt the Call of God in new areas with being called into teaching/leading Adults instead of Children and Prayer was one of the main ministries. Marg mentored me and all that I have learned I can honestly say was from my mentor...She took me under her wing and taught me what the Holy Spirit gave her to share with me.

Today was bitter-sweet, I am rejoicing that Marg has received her Crown and Reward but am sad that I won't have this friend here on earth. The hope I have as a believer is one day I will be re-united again with my mentor and friend, Marg, till then I will go about doing the ministry God has called me to do which is the Call to Prayer, Missions and Teach my Ladies a weekly Bible Study.

Thank you all for your support and prayers, I covet those prayers, the one kidney stone that remains hasn't passed as yet, I think this is what is draining me, I feel sluggish and tired most of the time. It doesn't take much to tire me these days so thanks for your patience and support.

In closing, may I encourage you to keep on Sparking and Shining for Jesus...He loves you with an everlasting love and He is the One who will carry you through to the Victory of achieving your goals...Yes, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Prayers and hugs Judith, I know it's so hard to lose a good friend even when we know they have gone to meet the Lord.
