Remembrances for my mother, Linda Peters (1946-2003)

from the Gospel of John Chapter 6...

Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day."

At this the Jews began to grumble about him because he said, "I am the bread that came down from heaven." They said, "Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, `I came down from heaven'?" "Stop grumbling among yourselves," Jesus answered. "No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets: They will all be taught by God.' Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me. No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father. I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life. I am the bread of life.

1 Corinthians 15:54-58

When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory." "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?"

Once there was a kind and generous woman who graced the Earth with her presence. I can't claim to have known her very well, but she did touch me in her time here. I'll never know whether she knew how much I appreciated her kindness, but I'll assume that she's with God now and that she's earned her reward.
Everytime we visited her house she was always the gracious host, trying to meet and/or exceed our needs. She loved to talk, and was a great conversationalist. She loved to serve, and was most famous for her taco dinners. It was always obvious that she loved her family, and I think her family loved her, too.
When she became ill, I tried getting the gang together to go see her. I thought that she deserved that. I never could get the others together. Maybe I should have went by myself, despite the fact that I would have felt awkward. It's too late now.
Thank you Lord for letting me know this woman.
Rest in Peace Linda Peters.

Mom, You are the mother every child needs -- supportive, patient and unconditionally loving. There are no words to express how grateful I am to you for everything you did for me and gave to me. Your passing leaves a gaping wound in my heart.

I was walking home from school on a cold winter day. Took a shortcut through the woods, and I lost my way. It was gettin' late, and I was scared and alone but then a kind old man took my hand and led me home. Now mama couldn't see him, but he was standing there. And I knew in my heart he was the answer to my prayer.

Oh I believe there are angels among us. Sent down to us from somewhere up above. They come to you and me in our darkest hours. To show us how to live, to teach us how to give, to guide us with the light of love.

When life held troubled times and had me down on my knees There's always been someone to come along and comfort me. A kind word from a stranger to lend a helping hand, A phone call from a friend just to say I understand. Now ain't it kind of funny, at the dark end of the road Someone lights the way with just a single ray of hope.

They wear so many faces. Show up in the strangest places. To grace us with their mercy in our time of need.

She can soar but she does not have wings she can fly but she'll never see the sky she can run but her legs will never walk she can sing but her lips will never talk

Beautiful she's beautiful and I don't care what you may say just look inside her soul, you'll see she's beautiful so beautiful she may not be a china doll but if you knew her you would know she's beautiful

Old and gay and lying in a bed there she will wait for Heaven to come no she cannot speak now even though she tries but her granddaughter will tell you with teardrops in her eyes

Beautiful she's beautiful and I don't care what you may say just look inside her soul, you'll see she's beautiful so beautiful she may not be a china doll but if you knew her you would know she's beautiful

If you would just hold her hand you'd see her smile and understand if you would listen you might hear an angel wisper in her ear God sees every sparrow fall with tender love He's made them all so hold her near and let her know that in God's eyes she's beautiful

Daniel whose eyes are so green Oh, how I love to see them laugh in gleam.

Michael whose eyes are so brown Oh, how I love to see his precious smile now.

Jayson last but not least Oh, how I love to see his whole face break into a smiling sunbeam.

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God laid for me, I took His hand when I heard Him call I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work, or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way I found that place at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Ah yes, these things, I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I savored much Good friends, good times, A loved one's touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief; Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me God wanted me now, He set me free.

Jayson and Family:

My heart goes out to you
On this, saddest of days
To you I send my love
Her love will always be
Everyday of your life
Reaching out from above
