I Lost My Friend To Cancer ~ Anchored In Him

 

Dear friend, you cannot fathom
The love I had for you
You always gave compassion
To everyone you knew.

Your heart was full of kindness 
Your soul was filled with peace
Your faith could not be shaken
Your light will never cease.

Your joy flowed like a fountain
Refreshing everyday
So clean, so pure, so simple
Like rain that falls in May.

Your smile was like the sunshine
As fresh as any flower
A heart as big as Texas
As steady as a tower.

You praised God for each hour 
For each and every day
You lived life to its fullness
And took the time to pray.

So many acts of kindness
You spread throughout the year
A hug was always waiting
For those that you held dear.

You had a love for babies
And fuzzy kittens too
Unending love for family
And special friendships, too

A husband, son and sisters
Just to name a few
So many other people
Now miss you like I do.

No longer do your emails
Come to my screen each day
Through all those years of writing
We always found a way.

You traveled through the valleys 
Your eyes fixed on the sky
Like Job found in the Bible
You never questioned why.

God took you to His mansion
What rejoicing there must be
When He took away your cancer
And He set your spirit free.

We all experience the death of our loved one's while we are here on Earth. Therefore we may take comfort in knowing that they are now with God, if they were saved. For it is written that when we die; Then the dust will return to the Earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it. Ecclesiastes 12:7

      So, take comfort in knowing you will see them
  again, for it isn't the end of them but only the beginning!
  The beginning of a much better life where; God will
 wipe away every tear from their eyes; there
 shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor
 Crying. There shall be no more pain, for the
 former things have passed away.
                                          Revelation 21:4

      Now if you have just experienced the loss of a loved one, the following message is for you! It has ministered to many and I pray that it will help you as well. Further, if you haven't experienced that loss, perhaps you know someone who has and would appreciate receiving it. If so, please feel free to share this page with them!


  Those who have passed away, and also remember that those who were saved are now . . .

"SAFELY HOME"

I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.

Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! But Jesus' love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.

And He came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's Will.

There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth,
You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
   Oh, the joy to see you come!
