SHIRLEY'S DAD HAS PASSED...HE IS HOME WITH THE LORD.

Hello everyone...I have sad news, yet glad news to share...

I just got off the phone with Shirley...she called me to let me know that her Dad passed at 3:15 this morning. I told her I would put the announcement on Hugs to let you know. James went peacefully, with the help of morphine, and it was the way he wanted it to be. His wife was with him at the time, she has been there since he went into the hospital. Now she is alone, and will need our prayers at this time. Her name is Barbara Waltrous.

So, here we are blessing our Lord Jesus again for bringing another one of his children Home for the promised Eternity in His Kingdom. Shirley is comforted in that fact, and that her Dad is now with her Mom and brother, the one that was killed so many years ago. Jimmy.

I found a lovely poem to share with you and Shirley at this time:

God bless, and please keep up your prayers...Love, Linda ))(( )))(((


THE HEAVENLY CITY

God has gently called your loved one away,
It is a Joyous thought to now realize;
To close the eyes here in this world,
Is only to open them again...in Paradise.

The pain and suffering now are gone,
There's no tears nor night anymore;
Your dear one said, "good-night" here and then,
Received a warm Welcome to Heaven's shore.

Your loved has now met Jesus, our Saviour,
While the Heavenly Choir of Angels sing;
Walking the streets of that beautiful City,
Joyful in heart as Heavenly voices ring.

Joining now to sing with the Angels there,
This Heavenly Land is peaceful and grand;
Waiting to Welcome you there, too, someday,
Smiling and rejoicing ~ holding to God's hand.

Your loved one will be greatly missed,
We sorrow not as those who have no Hope;
Your loving hands have done all they could do,
The Comforter will come to help you cope.

God is with you each moment of the day,
He wants you to continue on as best you can;
Trust in Him through each lonely hour,
You will meet again ~ Trust in His Divine Plan.

Dear Shirley, may our sweet Lord, and GOD of all comfort, send His Spirit to embrace you with His enablement, with His strength, and help during this time and beyond as needed. Precious Shirley, you haven't lost something if you know where it is. George and I love you and are praying for you and hurting with you.

Shirley,
My prayers goes out to you and your family at this sad time. I pray for God's peace that passes all understanding to be with all of you. Remember that a goodbye down here will lead to a Hello one day again in Heaven God promises us that. When my Dad went home I was grateful because I knew he had suffered enough and was now with God where he was happy.

God Bless You All Love You Eva

Linner: Thank you so much for being there for Shirely and helping her in the end times. And thank you for posting the comforting words by Leona Miller, who so aptly describes those end time feelings of not only sadness at the loved one's leaving this earth but at the promise of meeting that loved one again in Heaven.

Shirley, those of us who have lost a parent more than understand and share in your feelings of loss yet celebration to know that your dad is no longer suffering but indeed has gone to his Heavenly home where he has been made completely whole and has the joy of reconnecting with those who went before him. Our prayers will continue and we pray that our Father God will continue to give you and your family the physical and emotional strength to get through this time.....Blessings to all......KayD

Dear Sister in the Lord, Pastor Shirley,

I have recently spoken with you on the phone a couple of times.
One time was last night. We spoke for about an hour...
I had a dream during the night. Then, I called you this morning.
I dreamt that your father would be embraced by the Lord.
I rushed early this morning to give you a call to see the updates.
You were crying. You told me the sad news.....
I have given you my deepest condolences over the phone.
Now, I also write this message for you.
I could hear the Lord in my dreams calling your dad to His Kingdom
in Heaven last night. I was scared, frightened in a way.
I prayed, because I wanted your father to be healed.
I have been thinking of you and praying for your dad, your family
and for you too, Shirley. I am at lost in words. I can feel your pain.
I am in pain too, just feeling your deep pain in your heart.
I shall always be with you in the good times, in the sad or bad times as well,
my dear friend and sister in the Lord, Pastor Shirley.
I express my deep condolences to you, and your family as well.
Our Heavenly Father has a newborn baby, a new arrival today in His Everlasting Home.
God may bless you all, dear Pastor Shirley!!
(((Prayers going your way.)))

Monica, I didn't write that poem. I found it online for Shirley and her family...it was written by a lady named Leona I. Miller. Her name is at the end of the poem, she wrote it in 2004. Thanks anyway !!

Love, Linda :wink:

Dearest Eva;
Thank you so much ! Your kind words, are also an Inspiration to me ! Yes, I know that someday, we wl. all be together, once again..At least my Dad isn't suffering any longer ! I Prayed to God, 3 days, before, this all happened, to please spare my Dad,and Be His Will, to please make him well, once again ! I ws sitting in my car, listening to some Music, for my own quiet time, and as soon as I Prayed this to God', the answer came to me, in my mind..The exact words were,"It Is Time For Your Dad To Come Home And Be With Your Mom" ! So, I ws already, kind of preparing myself, and he had been put on a Ventilator too. When they removed it, he hung on, for 2-days, and then passed Sat. morn.@3:15 Am..I got the call, and woke everyone up, to head to the Hospital..My Stepmom ws with Him.....I Know that He, is now, in a much better place..Thank You Again..'God Bless you Eva"..Your Friend/Sis,"Pastor Shirley an shaw~~
