These prose writings are written in memory of the deep love she had for her Lord and Saviour, for her husband, and for others. These prose writings express the deep love we had for each other, a love that was rooted and grounded in the Lord Jesus Christ. In all the thirty years of our ministry together for our Lord Jesus Christ, she always stood by me. In the darkest of valleys, and there were many, she was always there, with her words of encouragement, with her sweet smile to chase away the blues.
Whenever the storm clouds would gather, she was always there. Hand in hand guided by our Saviour we walked the pilgrims pathway, never once looking back for our eyes were fixed on our Saviour, for we knew He knew the way. Many of these prose writings are thoughts gleaned from our thoughts together. This verse of Scripture I believe expresses our walk with our precious Lord.
Poem: My Devoted Mary
My sweet Mary was called home on April 1, 1999 to reside in the presence of our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. I know someday I too will join her in Heaven. There to serve our precious Saviour, for all eternity. I know Mary was like Paul and she could say too from her heart these words written by Paul, as he was ready to depart.
As It Is Written In
And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.
As it is written in II-Timothy 4:6-8
For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 2 Timothy 4:6
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, and I have kept the faith: 2 Timothy 4:7
Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. 2 Timothy 4:8
