Another Saint in Heaven

It was our privilege to sing to my
Grandma Esther as she was welcomed
through Heaven's Gates around 1:45pm
this afternoon.

We were singing We're Marching to Zion.
I said that Grandma
 picked up her marching orders
and went on her way.
Very peacefully.

It is all good now.

We are home and exhausted.

I'll post again tomorrow but it
will probably be on a different
subject. It was sweet to share 
this experience here. 
God was so very
good to us.

Oh my, but it has been a bittersweet experience to be "with" you in this, Becky. My love and prayers are with you and yours. What joy in Heaven today!

Time takes care of a lot things. At least you have the assurance of where she is and so many cannot say that. May you and family find peace in knowing there some us that understand.

I'm so sorry, Becky. It's such a bittersweet time, because even though you're happy for her, I know you're still going to miss her presence. Praying for peace and comfort for you, from His hand to your heart.

It sounds like your grandmother really showed her love for the Lord in all that she did. I'm sorry for your loss although I know you're rejoicing that you'll see her again. Your family is in my prayers.

Becky, my deepest sympathy to you on your grandmother's passing, but what comfort you must feel knowing she went from your loving family circle straight to Heaven and the glory of the Lord! We sang to my mother before she died, too. I did a post on it some time back, but there is a song I will always associate with her passing. It's called, "I Want To Walk As A Child of the Light," and it's all about Jesus being the Light of our lives and of Heaven, etc. Very comforting.

I love "Marching Through Jordan," and I think that must have been a tremendous comfort to your sweet grandmother. Every time a Christian passes, I so want to send my family a message, but then I know that they know how much I love them, and some day I'll be able to tell them again, face to face.

Sending my love and sympathy on your loss, Becky, along with my joy that Heaven has a wonderful new resident.

In Him,

So sorry to hear about your loss. But excited for Grandma Esther's gain! But it's still hard for us to say goodbye. Praying for you!

Oh to leave earth having your family sing "We're Marching to Zion"--Crossing the Jordon couldn't have been any easier! What more is there than to know you will see your loved ones again together with your Savior for eternity!
