Living God, although my tears are flowing. I feel blessed that when my mother took her last breath, she entered heaven's gates. I miss her dearly, but I cling to your promise of salvation for this who place their faith in You. May she rest in Paradise until that final day when you return, and we are caught up into the clouds with you. Help me to honor her memory by living a life of selfless love and service.
