Remembering my Mimi

My Mimi went Home to Jesus last night, just 10 days before her 93rd birthday. I can only imagine the celebration that was had when she arrived.




Some day the silver cord will break,

And I no more as now shall sing;

But oh, the joy when I shall wake

Within the palace of the King!

And I shall see Him face to face,

And tell the story—Saved by grace;

And I shall see Him face to face,

And tell the story—Saved by grace.

Some day my earthly house will fall.

I cannot tell how soon ’twill be;

But this I know—my All in All

Has now a place in Heav’n for me.

Some day, when fades the golden sun

Beneath the rosy tinted west,

My bless├Ęd Lord will say, “Well done!”

And I shall enter into rest.

Some day: till then I’ll watch and wait,

My lamp all trimmed and burning bright,

That when my Savior opens the gate,

My soul to Him may take its flight.

What a beautiful Mimi. She's home, and I'm sure the celebration was and is magnificent. Regardless, I'm sorry for your loss here on earth.
