The Time Was Right

In May, 2009, I went to visit my great aunt Hassie.  I was so blessed by that visit.  (You can read about it here.)  We were able to talk a long time and part of our conversation revolved around her health.  She told me that she was just waiting on the Lord to call her home. She said that sometimes she hurt so bad that she wished He'd take her on, but she knew she'd go when her time was right. She said "He's always there to hold your hand if you'll just reach up and take it".

Well, this morning at 11:10,
the time was right. 
God called her home and heavens gates admitted a beautiful saint of God.  

Dad, Debbie, me and my aunts, Bobbie and Bonnie, went up early this morning to see her.  We had been there about an hour or so when she left this life behind.  We were able to be there for a while with Uncle Clarence and her son, Everett.  Please remember them in prayer.  Hassie would have been 91 next month, and she and Clarence had been married for 62 years. Clarence took such good care of her.  His love was very evident in the way he talked about her, and all that he did.

Hassie will be missed.
She was a very special lady.
And I loved her!
