LIPS THAT COULD NOT SPEAK

“Fine Arrangement” were the last words a dying lady said. She lay in a hospital bed for quite some time. She could not say a word for three months. Her niece (also my daughter-in-law) asked me to go to the hospital with her as she didn’t know what to say to her aunt. I didn’t even know her or what I would say or do when I got there.

I asked her to tell me some of the things her aunt liked to do when she was up and around. I looked into the woman's eyes. She looked back at me with delight. Words just spilled out of my mouth. I told her when she got out of bed; we would go dancing and kick up our heels. She smiled. I mentioned bingo and playing cards, even though I didn’t like either one. That seemed to
please her.

Her eyes got big and followed my every move. I knew she was in there and very much aware of what was going on. I prayed for her although I wasn’t too skilled in praying for people yet. I prayed more for her son who was clinging to her for dear life.

After another week, my daughter-in-law asked me to go with her again. This time, I didn’t talk to her. Instead I read Revelation 21:1-7 about no more tears and a new life. In a voice you knew hadn’t been used for a long time, she said: “Fine Arrangement”. She relaxed with a smile on her face.

Her son hugged me. He thought she was going to get well. The Holy Spirit let me know that she wasn’t. She wanted to be released from this pain filled life but was hanging on for dear life for her son’s sake. A short time later, she passed on to be with the Lord.

We must hold on to the fact that we all have to have a time for grieving. One consolation is when we know the Lord, we will be reunited in heaven. What a glorious reunion. Jesus will be with us all.

That was an awesome experience I shall never forget.









If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Your story reminds me so much of the experience I went through when my mom was in the hospital. I watched my mom suffer more than any person I know but what I remember most is her smile. You are a BLESSED writer.
