~ The Last Teacup ~ MaryElla is with Jesus

My Beloved Friend, MaryElla went home to Heaven today. When I was visiting her last month she insisted that I bring home some Teacups. We have exchanged them for many years and we both enjoyed having tea parties. The one on the right is her favorite one and now it's my favorite one.

MaryElla loved the Lord! She was an encouragement to me. We loved many of the same things, like, "Best Friends Always", do. That is what she called me, her "BFA". Decorating our home with our "finds", shopping, chocolate, making cards and crafts to name a few. Her friendship was a Gift from God. We have been friends since the early 80's! I will miss her! However, knowing that she is in Heaven, I have Peace in my Heart and I'll see her there.

Thank you all so much for your prayers for her and her family.

Love,

deb

Thinking of you and sending your extra prayers and hugs. I posted this on my blog today. It's very timely. This conversation took place before bed Saturday evening.

Josie: "Mom, do you like shadows?"
Kim: "Yes. I like shadows."
Josie: "I think shadows are Aunt Jean and Nana following us around." I definitely like shadows."

You have an extra special shadow/angel watching over you now.

Debby said...

When I saw your title nmy heart sunk. So sorry. It is so good that you can feel that peace. I felt that when my dad died. He had Alzheimers and I knew he was in a better place. I can't say that I have felt this way with others that I lost. She will always be your best friend and you will see her again. Do you know the song by Mercey Me.......I can only imagine......I love that song. Just imagine ME dancing in heaven with Jesus. ((((((HUGS)))))
