Psalm 23

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me; Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever. Psalm 30 11-12 (KJV)

CRY FOR ME NO MORE Cry for me no more. For I have entered God’s heavenly door. It is the place of true rest, Don’t forget to do your best. I have found peace with the Creator. It is now up to you to one day take this journey, too. Fear not, it is a place where all things are made new. “Forgive us of our sins” was my chant. Don’t even think, “I can’t make it in.” You can win. Cry for me know more. For I have entered God’s heavenly door. –Casilda Woodward

The old saying is true "You dont truly know how much you appreciate a loved one until they are gone".
You spent your whole life teaching people about Jesus including me from a young age. You, my Grandmother and my Grandfather were huge influences on my life. I can't even imagine the kingdom you have in front of you right now. You have earned it! I love you with all my heart Barbara.
This is not goodbye this is I'll see you later...
REVELATION 14:13
BLESSED ARE THE DEAD WHO DIE IN THE LORD FROM NOW ON. "YES" SAYS THE SPIRIT, "THEY WILL REST FROM THEIR LABOR, FOR THEIR DEADS WILL FOLLOW THEM."

My love and prayers to Barbara's family.

God blessed me with Barbara Jean 31 years ago. Never have I met a more faithful friend, prayer partner, soldier for the Lord - who exhibited an abundance of righteous spunk. We laughed, cried, prayed, sought God and never left out our "girl gab". I will miss her for the rest of my life. With the way she laid down her own comfort and her own personal wishes for the sake of reaching others - literally everyone in her path - for the Lord, she ran a good race. Barbara did not move in the riches of high society, or accumulate the wealth of this world; but she served God in a much higher realm, and that is all that counts. Many, many treasures are stored in Heaven for her. Rest now my dearest friend. I love you.

So sorry for your loss. It is comforting to know that heaven is rejoicing that Barbara has come home. I remember spending a lot of time visiting with Barbara and her family as a child. She took us to VBS at a nearby church one summer. I remember the song Onward Christian Soldiers and thinking that I wanted to be one for Jesus. I know she was one and now is enjoying "Well done." Hugs to the family.
