Tribute to my friend, Lil
Monday, April 6, 2015
Good morning! Today, I would like to pay tribute to Ms. Lillian Freeman. She has finished her race in this life and is now celebrating with Jesus! Later this morning, she will be honored and her life celebrated by her family and many, many friends. She was indeed, a special lady. I don’t remember when I met Lil, it just seems I’ve always known her. The important thing is what I do remember. She was always happy, in a good mood, smiling, and laughing. Where ever she went, whatever she was doing, it was accompanied by joy and genuine love. When I first started writing these posts, Lil was one of the very first people who hit the “like” button. She would often make a comments of encouragement to me. She always cheered me on, especially when I would give a praise report about what was happening in the prison ministry. She had no idea how much she encouraged me. Her words always seemed to come just at the right time. I won’t be there today to participate in her home-going celebration because I’m heading out in a few minutes for that 5 hour drive to minister at the Women’s Pre-Parole Transfer Facility in Bridgeport, Texas tonight. And, later tomorrow when I post the praise the report, I will miss seeing her name among those who liked the post. As I continue to make the daily posts, there will be a void because of the absence of her comments that so often inspired and strengthened me. Oh, but I believe she will continue to encourage me, as well as, the many others she loved so much. It will just come through a different venue; as she is now a member of that elite group described as the “cloud of heavenly witnesses” that cheers us on. My prayers are for God’s love and peace to comfort each heart that grieves for her presence. May each of us be strengthened and continue to follow her example of loving kindness and spread the joy of the Lord wherever we go. I believe she would join me in saying, remember always, “Jesus Loves You.”
