The Passing of a Saint

    On May 14, 2012, Ruth Alice Carter departed from her life on earth. To those who knew her, She was a ray of light, a beacon, one who could always be counted on. She was gentle and kind but always honest with Her assessment. She never said no to a friend or a neighbor who was in need. She gave selflessly her entire life. She ran her race and finished in a spectacular fashion. She will stand at the dais of Christ to receive her reward and will undoubtedly go on to lead thousands upon thousands in Christ's Army. She had learned what so many Saints fail to grasp, forgive all trespasses and love others the way God loves us. She understood the meaning of Grace.

   As she reposes at Mount Olive, God continues to perfect His plan while Lord Jesus assembles the Saints who will reign with Him for a thousand years. Her very next conscious moment will be one of such joy and happiness. She will be raised incorruptible. She will be perfect. She will reign with Her Lord and Savior until all enemies have been defeated.

1 Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (KJV)
