There are unmistakeable manifestions that physical life is drawing to a close for me. Weakness is more evident every day. The conclusion is inevitable, and completely acceptable. It is the natural and beautiful ebb and flow of life. I am deeply grateful to God for almost eighty-nine years of life on this earth.
I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge with deep appreciation all the thoughtful and kind responses to my writing you have shared with me through the years. They were always instructive and encouraging.
Remember, dear brothers and sisters in Christ, God will keep you in perfect peace if your heart is stayed on Him. Isaiah 26:3
Dear Sister Aline,
It is with Christian love I will say my good-bye's while you are still here to read them. I've enjoyed your writings and your book. What a blessed time to look forward to seeing our Saviour face to face! You have been a blessing to many and enriched many lives. For this you have ran the good race.
My heart is saddened to hear you are leaving this earth and it is with tears I write this yet also knowing we will finally see each other's face and enjoy the unimaginable blessings of life with God Himself and all who have gone on before.
God bless you as you go through the door to the next life - may God be evident in His closeness.
Farewell my Sister until we meet again,
