Today a beautiful woman passed from this life into the arms of her Savior. Aunt Ruth spent her life doing the work of the Lord. She and her husband raised their four children to know the love of God. As her mother aged and had lost her husband, aunt Ruth took care of her with love. She later spent several years as a sorority house mom at the University of Oklahoma. She was truly a servant leader throughout her life. As she lived her life there was always the coming appointed time that only God knew of the day she would close her eyes in death.
I wasn’t there to see her eyes as she left this life, but I have confidence that they were looking into the face of Jesus. There is a mystery we all feel as to what the end of life will be like. When I heard “the news of Ruth’s passing today I felt a peace. I have been at the side of three mothers at their final hours and have sensed that peace out poured from heaven.
There’s no need to fear death. Put you trust in Jesus and experience that hope for better things to come. With that trust comes a relationship that results in a life lived more and more like Jesus daily.
“The King will reply, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40 NIV)
