Heaven’s Gain


Early this morning I received the following text –


If you’re reading this text, do not reply. You see, I am now home with my Lord and Savior. I’m healed, happy, and hoping to see you here too.



The Lord is her shepherd, she was never in need.
He made her lie down in safe places.
He led her beside the waters of peace.
He restored her soul.
He led her in paths of righteousness and graciousness for His Name sake.
Even though she walked through the valley of the shadow of death,
She was never afraid of the evil one.

For she knew the LORD was with her, his strength and his grace, they comforted her.
The LORD prepared a table before her, even in the presence of the evil one and
He comforted her until her cup overflowed with blessing.
Surely goodness and mercy followed her all the days of her life,
and she will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Heaven’s gain.
Our loss.
We will miss you, dear friend.
