My grandmother died this week. I'll write more about all of this when I've had the chance to process it all. A dear friend Eleece Parker wrote this and brought it to the home today and I'd like to share it.
It was my honor to meet Mrs Morrow,
She was a blessing to get to know;
I learned so much from her patience,
Through her, God’s glory did show.
She talked of her family and friends,
OH! The joy that was brought to her face;
To be sick should bring bitter and sadness,
But for her this wasn’t the case.
She was always filled with great hope,
And talked of the days gone by;
We prayed God would heal her body,
But never once did she ask God why.
Her faith was strong and secure,
She made sure that I too believed;
She asked God to save the lost,
That they also God’s Son would receive.
Although this fine lady is gone now,
She will always be close in our heart;
Her memories live on through our actions,
In our lives she has played a big part.
As a Titus 2 woman she lived,
To be self-controlled and pure;
She taught what is good, and to love,
Set the example to others for sure.
She spoke with wisdom; she was full of grace;
She feared the Lord, gave Him praise;
A wife of noble character, she served with much love;
Gave her all to the family she raised.
Her children call her blessed, her beauty runs deep,
Compassion simply flowed from within;
She gave of her best to the Master;
Concerned for lost souls to win.
With joy we know she’s in Heaven,
She has fought the good fight all the way.
Well done good and faithful servant;
Is something she heard God say.
