We Shall See Our Loved Ones Again (A tribute to my mom)

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

What a blessed hope we have as believers to know that we will see our loved ones again at the return of Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians chapter 4 gave us a vivid description of what that day will be like. It tells us that the dead in Christ shall rise first then those who are alive and are Christians, will be caught up with them to meet Jesus in the air.

When my mother passed away in 2012, I was devasted. It took me a long time to mourn her passing and it took me a long time to come to terms with the fact that she has left this world. There were still so many things left to be done with her, but God saw it fit to take her home. This is not my first time blogging about my mother and it surely will not be the last. Ever since she passed away, she has remained in my heart and it feels as if not a day goes by that she is not remembered in some way. But as hard as it may be to lose her, I know for certain that she went home to Jesus based on her testimony minutes before she passed. She was a dedicated woman of God and she served him with all her heart. Let us therefore live our lives rooted in Christ so that when it is time for us to depart this world, we too can leave a testimony of faith for others to follow.

Today, January 13, 2021 she would have celebrated her 89th birthday. Happy birthday mama, you are missed. I wrote this poem in her honor shortly after she died: –

Just Like Yesterday written by Sheila Currie Blake:

Yesterday my mother died

The news came six months ago

Oh, I wish it weren’t so

And even though we have laid her to rest

The pain I felt is still so fresh

Just like it was yesterday

I know that she is resting, in the bosom of Jesus Christ

Where joy is full, and pain is gone

I still ache for her every day and the pain I felt still won’t go away

Just like it was yesterday

It she was here she would have said

Don’t cry for me because I am free, from all the cares and misery

But even that won’t cease my tears, nor make the pain disappear

It hurts so bad it’s hard to bear

Just like it was yesterday

I never got to say goodbye

To hold her hands throughout the night or run my fingers through her hair and tell her it will be alright

I never got to see the last look on her face as she takes her final flight to her resting place

And so the pain still lingers on

Just like it was yesterday

I reflect on her everyday

And wish I could rewind the hands of time

And as I go to live and breathe, I still hear her voice and see her face

I sometimes think she is here with me

But quickly wake up to reality

To relive the pain that will forever remain

Just like it was yesterday

Let us pray:  Lord, please forgive me of my sins today. Thank you for your word. Thank you Lord that though we mourn the loss of loved ones, we can remain hopeful that one day we shall see them again. Thank you Lord for this blessed assurance in Jesus name. Amen. Until next time. God bless you.

    1. I miss her too and wished death would not be so proud, but I am certain that one day when death shall be no more- we will have the last laugh. I mourn but with hope that I will see her again in that great triumphant morning.

  4. Thank you, Sheila, for sharing this beautiful poem. Praise God that the “separation” between you and your mother is but temporary, and that shortly you will be reunited. And when you are, it will last for eternity!
