Some people live thier lives in hope,
Some people live in fear.
Some people are happy to live life on the edge
With danger, toil and snare.
Now, we know someone who lived her life, walking the path of faith.
Standing tall above one and all, His righteousness embraced.
A righteous woman of integrity, its God who made her right.
A righteous woman of integrity, this could be seen with plain sight.
A righteous woman of integrity, never wavered in her faith.
A righteous woman of integrity, she has entered the pearly gates.
“Stand to attention ye Angel, a special assignement for you,
It’s time to pick that beautiful rose, for it’s here that she will bloom”.
“Take her by the hand I say, lead her gently home,
For she will rise with Eagle’s wings defying Earth’s time zone”.
A special flower, a beautiful rose now blooms in heaven’s garden.
Swaying the the gentle breeze provided by the Master.
Living in the heavenly realms, walking with prophets of old.
Jackie will always be remembered, her story always told.
Jackie has found her place with her Lord, she’s happy, contented now.
She never lost her integrity, right to the final hour.
Be comforted to know that there is no pain up there.
Jackie is in His arms now and hopes to meet you there.
I wrote this as a tribute to my late sister-in-law who passed away at the tender age of 44 due to breast cancer in 2007. I read it at her funeral and I made plaques that everyone was given as a memorial to her.
