nor the furious winter's rages.
Thou thy worldly task has done
home art gone an ta'en thy wages.
--Shakespeare (from Cymbeline)
Early this morning my mom's friend, Lynn, went home to be with the Lord. She valiantly and gracefully battled cancer for the last several years. She was, and will continue to be, a picture of strength, dignity, and hope to anyone who knew her. I am one of many people who have been blessed by her incredible talent for quilt-making. The picture above is the quilt I received from her as a wedding gift.
Lynn put her hope in the Lord, Jesus Christ and had accepted His free gift of grace. Because of this we know that her eternity is secure. As we grieve with her husband and children, we also rejoice with them to know that Lynn is now free from pain. God has given her a new body.
Please keep her family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
