Ms. Thelma and me at my baby shower in September
Ms. Thelma and I met at church where we used to sit next to each other during the service. If Ms. Thelma was already seated when I arrived, she would smile at me and say, "There's my friend!" as my husband wheeled me in beside her. We didn't get to see each other very often because neither one of us could attend each week, but we were always happy to see each other when we could.
After I moved to Kentucky we were rarely able to see one another. I went back to Georgia last September for my baby shower, and I was so surprised and pleased to see Ms. Thelma there! I knew that it took a huge effort on her part to get out to the shower, and it was a special treat to have her there. That was the last time I saw Ms. Thelma.
Today I received news that Ms. Thelma died. She is now in Heaven, and I am so happy for her. I am smiling through the tears. She can rest from her toil on this earth and rejoice in the presence of her Savior. It may be a long time before I see her again, but I know that I will one day join her in Heaven.
If you want to know how you can go to Heaven too, please send me an email. I would love to share the Good News about Jesus with you. I want you to know the hope and joy that I have. I want you to one day be in Heaven with Ms. Thelma and me, and more importantly, with Jesus.
