Death is nothing else but going home to God, the bond of love will be unbroken for all eternity.

I wrote this words early last week, seeing and feeling the pain and heartache in my children, of losing their beloved bubu, my mum, late Kila’auka V Kara nee Tauhura. I titled it “A mother’s anguish”

A mother’s anguish 😧

“The internet brings us closer
Technology makes us feel included
But none of that can ever replace
That wonderful feeling of being
Loved and embraced by a mother or grandmother

I see my children
Each fighting their own battles
But never, pain – this terrible and
Overwhelming of losing
Their beloved bubuhahine

I see their pain
I sense their anguish
I dry their tears
I feel their broken hearts
How I wish my mother was here

She would know
Exactly what to say or not say
And make them feel better
Hug them through this
And pray earnestly over them

How does a mother heal
The broken hearts of her children
When her own heart is
Shattering into a
Million pieces

On her knees
Head bowed
Hands clasped
Praying earnestly
Just as her own mother showed her

In our heartbreak I’m reminded of
Mum’s way of dealing with anguish
And everything else that life threw at her
Always on her knees
In prayer & worship to God”

Where our dad was the preacher and wielded a strong hand of discipline, our mother was his instrument. God placed her in his life, to live out every word that he, dad spoke about in his sermons. Two of those stand out, loving all and living prayerfully.

She reminded us everyday that we must take everything to God in prayer. May they both rest in God’s eternal peace.

God bless us all always ❤🙏

Psalms 91: 14-16
14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”
