I lost a friend, but only for a little while . .

I lost a friend in May.  I’ve never actually met Donna; at least not in “person”. We became friends on Face Book only four years ago.

From the pictures I saw posted on that social outlet, she was a beautiful woman with eyes that sparkled and golden hair that was pure glory.

I’ve learned that Donna was a missionary evangelist with her husband and ministered in nearly 60 countries and nations. Further she was a Doctor of Naturopathy.

She prayed in person for people and she prayed on Face Book.  She ministered the Word in such a beautiful way.  I grew to love this woman, all that she was and all that she believed. How is this possible?  I believe it’s because we are born of the same Spirit.  We are both part of the Body of Christ.

People have said of Donna that she had “Godly insights” and that “she shared her love so very freely”.

I glanced at her Face Book page again a little while ago. There are hundreds of notes from people she impacted all over the world; many of whom she knew personally, but like I, so many notes from people who knew her only on Face Book  All of us miss her and we join in praying for her husband, sons and their families.

For those of us left behind, in the book of Revelation, John said exactly what we need to hear: “I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Rev 21: 2-4)

I don’t know what was printed on her tomb stone, but I am betting that in the Spirit, it is imprinted, “Well done dear and faithful Servant”. (Matt 25:21.23)

  1. Catherine, that was a beautiful story and tribute to your friend Donna! I am sorry for your loss! Life is so short!

  2. Really sweet memorial, Cat–well said.  I know she and the Lord the two of you serve are pleased.  Now one more person has been blessed who never even met her on Facebook.  Funny how ministries keep living even after we’re gone isn’t it?
