Time Off


A note to let you know that I will not be blogging or moderating comments for about one week beginning Saturday, Jan 22nd. I am taking time to be with family to celebrate the life  and recognize the passing of our dear Mother Evelyn. If you comment during that time it won’t be posted until I return.

Bessings and peace to you all in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

In Memory of Mamma K.

In  Memory of Evelyn Kelly, truly a beloved Mother, Grandmother and Friend.

My husband’s mother passed last night. She was ready to leave. I keep thinking of a line from a movie “A lady always knows when it’s time to leave”.

I believe she is in the arms of Jesus today, surrounded by her husband, and her two grandchildren –Steven and Jessica. They are in that place created by God where there is no more suffering or sorrow or tears.

We spoke Jesus to these that we loved and now they see Him face to face. This can be a time of sorrow but for me it is another “splat! right into the wall” moment, to know they see what I can only speak of and wait patiently for . I choose the hope of Christ!

This is her pictured with my husband and our mini-doxie Kara on the Washington coast taken a few years ago. It was a perfect day.
