When A Close Friend Passes On

When A Close Friend Passes OnA few days ago, I heard that a friend had passed on ( meaning, died).  She was old,nearly 90, and had been rendered almost non-ambulent, moving only with the aid of a walking stick. Her life changed  after she had a few falls, and broken her hip joint,  and she moved to live in the same apartment block as her son. She , instead of being alone, had the company of her 6 grand children.  she was happy in her new home, though far away from her usual environment.I learnt that before she was admitted to hospital, she had a set of  clothing taken out, these she had designated for her own burial. And, her son revealed that she had filled in a booklet, published by her church, with regards to preparing for the final lap; entitled: " When Death Occurs" . All details were meticulously given. Such a person was she.I will miss her , a dear, gentle, patient  friend, a confidante, and an advisor. I'm telling myself I must prepare too, as she had done.  In the last two days, oft and on, I am  remembering the conversations we had, her great faith in God, her mannerisms and her gentle smiles. And so, life goes on....But I know I will see her one day, as we both believe in the heaven promised by our Saviour, the Lord Jesus.###John 1:12  Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed  in his name,  he gave the right to become children of God —###John 5:24  “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes Him who sent me  has eternal life  and will not be judged  but has crossed over from death to life.我的一位好朋友过世了,我在思念她的友谊。但是,我知道有一天,我们会见面,因为主耶稣給的应许。###約 翰 福 音 1:12

 凡 接 待 他 的 , 就 是 信 他 名 的 人 , 他 就 賜 他 們 權 柄 , 作 神 的 兒 女 。###約 翰 福 音 5:24 

 我 實 實 在 在 的 告 訴 你 們 , 那 聽 我 話 、 又 信 差 我 來 者 的 , 就 有 永 生 ; 不 至 於 定 罪 , 是 已 經 出 死 入 生 了
