I wrote this poem to honor our most beloved First Lady, Sister Charlene Jackson (she liked to be called Sister Charlene)...she passed away on January 26, 2011...our hearts ache for her...but revive slowly in the knowledge that she is with our King....


Has she ever smiled at you
With that twinkle in her eye
And warm glow surrounding her.
If she did you would know…

First Lady

Have you ever heard her voice as she
Encouraged you…helping you along the way…
Didn’t you feel as if you were the only one in the world
She was concerned about that day?

First Lady

Have you ever heard her sing?
Gathering letters and words….
As the melody of her voice raised even the more
Something about that voice brought tears to your eyes
As she lay her gift by our Savior’s side

First Lady

Have you ever felt the strength of her resolve
As she preached from the depths of her soul
Telling you things, she’d already learned
Admonishing you to believe the word of God
Challenging you not to compromise your faith
Telling all the women…yes you can wait

First Lady

Have you ever seen her tip quietly into a room?
Waving her hand from far away…
Just stopping by to encourage you that day…
No form, no fashion…no trumpets to sound
Just a beautiful spirit that came and sat down…

First Lady

And even now as we say goodbye
The sincerity of her soul can not die…
Because if you experienced any of these things
Our Heavenly Father has blessed you…eternally
As our spirits move with purpose and grace
Shown to us by this Lady of Faith

First Lady

As we pattern our lives after the Lord Jesus Christ
Look at the example he has framed for us…
How much He loves you and I….
Allowing us such a beautiful moment in time
As the imprint she leaves stays forever in our minds...

First Lady…

Beautiful tribute to your 'First Lady'. She obviously left a stamp on your heart. This tribute will help with the healing process. For each loss we endure we will grieve differently. Allow the process of grieving to run its course so that you can come to a place of acceptance and start the process of healing. Her teaching certainly has influenced you. Now use what you have learned, in line with God's will, develop on it as you go forth and teach... Glad to have you back. Missed you!
