On Motherís Day 2006 my mother passed from this life into eternity with the Lord. I remember the night I got the call.
ďAnn, Mommaís in the hospital, you need to start praying,Ē my youngest sister said. As I began to intercede for my mother a peace filled my bedroom where I was praying. This peace that I felt was both internal and external. It was a presence of peace all around me; hugging and holding me. So comforting and serene was this presence in my room that I laid down and went to sleep.
When the phone rang an hour later, I was told momma had died. ďThatís impossible,Ē I said to myself, ďhow could Momma be dead when Iím experiencing so much peace?Ē
It still doesnít seem like sheís gone until I reach for the phone to share with her an experience, or ask a question about something and I realize I canít.
I thought this day would be painfully unbearable, but itís not. Motherís Day is a day of celebration and rejoicing. I canít think of a better day than Motherís Day for a godly mother to receive the ultimate gift of fulfillment; entrance into the eternal presence of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
