Hope deferred maketh the heart sick
Hope Deferred:After Momma passed away 24, August 2002, i was overwhelmed with grief that i had never known in my life time. The one thing that keeps me going in her passing is that i knew that i knew that i knew she was born again. Momma wasn't just a pew warmer, and didn't want to be seen nor did she want attention drawn to her either. She was truly a prayer warrior. She ministered to so many people 24/7 that i joked to her one day and said, Momma? It's pretty bad when i have to make an appointment to see and talk with my own mother huh? We both just laughed. You couldn't even say: JESUS and momma would start crying to which i would say: Momma? Whats wrong? She would reply with: I just love my Lord so much, he's just so precious to me. I never truly understood how many lives momma touched till the end of her life. She even lead someone who themselves were dieing of cancer to the Lord over the phone because momma was bed ridden at this time. But like i said i didn't realize the impact of Christ momma had on people until her funeral. There were almost 2,000 people there. The reason i write this is i've been grieving ever since and maybe perhaps the rest of my life, i don't know. But after momma passed away, some time after this i created an email of which this thread is about. Sorry i took so long to get to the point. The email i created in 2002 and still have is:[email protected]
I just PMed brother Chris with my thanks for this verse, as it was sort of personal, and I want to thank him again but now also thank Dorcas and Brother Julian for their responses.Brother Julian, words aren't going to work right now with what you've just posted. I haven't been that touched by a person's testimony in quite some time.I can't wait to meet your Momma.LORD what a day that will be.Thank you Brother Julian and may He strengthen your heart, until That Day... with His Love.
Though everyone so far has reacted the same with this verse, what was your original intent for placing this here Chris? 8-)
Brother Julian, words aren't going to work right now with what you've just posted.

I can't wait to meet your Momma.
LORD what a day that will be.
Thank you Brother Julian and may He strengthen your heart, until That Day... with His Love.
Hi everyone.Compliments, sorry I didn't write sooner in response to your question. I thought it was appropriate for us at the time. There was something else on my own heart, but maybe it was enough as it was?Take care for now,Chris
