At 1.40 in the Children’s Hospice surrounded by those she loved & listening to her favorite Christian music, beautiful Leah went home to Jesus very peacefully.
For Leah this means no more chemotherapy, no more physical pain, no more nausea & vomiting, no more oral meds & injections, no more side effects, no more tubes, no more blood tests, scans, X-rays, being poked, prodded, examined, spending endless hours in hospitals, time in isolation, having to worry about every lump, bump & new symptom, etc etc
Leah was ready to meet Jesus, of this I have no doubt, it’s us who aren’t ready to say goodbye.
For those who knew & loved her there is the overwhelming sadness of parting.
“For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;
He will lead them to springs of living water.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
Here is another song that has been special for Leah & I on this journey
“It is well with my soul” by Hillsongs
“When peace like a river
Attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot
You have taught me to say
It is well
It is well with my soul”
