"It's Time"


“It’s Time”
It’s time –
for us to grieve and cry and
for you to smile and rejoice.
We miss a woman we love,
but for you the pain is gone.

It’s time –
for us to mourn the life that was lost and
for you to see the ones you’ve missed.
You’re no longer with us,
but you’ll forever be with ones you love.

It’s time –
for us to say, “Good-bye” and
for you to say, “Hello.”
We will tell our grandma farewell,
but you’ll see Jesus face to face.

It’s time –
for us to wait and wonder and
for you to know what is to come.
We look forward to heaven
knowing you will meet us there.
Tomorrow we will bury my grandma - the last couple of days have been sad, but the memories are good. I will always miss her, never forget her and trust someday I will see her again.

  2. Jill-I am so sorry about the loss of your grandmother. I lost my grammy in 1990 and I still miss her. I cherish the memories and eternity gives us comfort!

  3. Hi Jill. I am certain that you'll feel comforted and strengthened by God in this time of mourning. I pray that it will be a time of coming together for your family, and a wonderful sharing of your Faith and of your Hope.

    I've taken the time tonight to go over a few blogs, and am glad I have done so with yours... You write so beautifully, and I've been touched by much of what you have written...

    I trust that the service for your Grandma will be honouring to her, your family and to our God, and that it will give you peace... Blessings. Naomi
