On Sunday, December 25, 2005, Ashley thanked the church for all their help and prayers. Ashley, twelve years old, stood in front of the congregation on Christmas morning and said, “I want to be taken off the church prayer list.” Her parents looked at her with confusion and tears in their eyes. She continued on, “I have heard you all talk about God, Jesus and Heaven. You have made it sound so good, that I want to go and enter Heaven’s pearly gates and see God’s face. I am ready to go home, when God is ready to take me. I want to ask you to pray for all those who do not know God and who are not ready, because those are the people we should be praying for. We never know when God is going to come for us. He took my friend Rebecca, when she was only seven. I am only a child, so what do I know? I am sure that is what some of you are thinking, but I am here to tell you, that I know God!” She then looked at her parents and cried out, “I love you but we belong in Heaven with God. We are only here for a short time.”
Ashley passed away on February 5, 2006.
Ashley lived her life making the best out of every moment. She was only a child but she was a child of God. She set an example for us all. Ashley was ready when God called her home. Will you be ready?
