The Lord Jesus loves Mama! And Mama loves the Lord Jesus! Glorifying the Lord Jesus in life and in death. The blessed hope that the Lord Jesus left us in His Word, The Bible in The Second Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians chapter 5 verses 1-8 Assurance of the Resurrection “For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” I believe Mama’s overwhelming joy was when she closed her eyes on March 5th and then opening them up again...seeing the face of The Lord Jesus smiling at her welcoming her in heaven. That must be a joyful celebrations, with Daddy and Lelan altogether again and with all the host of angels as well as all the brothers and sisters in Christ who went home before Mama. Indeed as the Bible says in Psalm 116:15 “Precious in the sight of The Lord is the death of His saints.” Now that’s the truthful and real celebration of Mama’s life! The Bible says in The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Romans chapter 8:18-39 “ For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. God’s Everlasting Love What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. God’s Word gives me peace and comfort and always looking ahead for that blessed hope where we all one day together to be with The Lord! Praising and thanking The Lord Jesus everyday! I love you Ma! I’ll see you again either by death or by rapture/ harpazo(Greek)/ rapturo (Latin) for I myself can’t wait to see the Smiling Face of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! Maranatha! Come quickly Lord Jesus! The last prayer in the last Book of The Bible in The Revelation of Jesus Christ chapter 22 verses 20-21 : I Am Coming Quickly He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

The Bible says in Psalm 116:15 ” Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints”. We remember Margie Santos of NOVA who went home to be with the Lord on March 5th. She is survived by her sisters in California, Maring Colorado and Domie Nace, her brother-in-law Enrique Nace, her many nieces and nephews. Margie’s daughters: Divina Gryder (Virginia) and Amor Kelley (Texas), her sons in the Philippines Dick and Melchor Santos and daughters-in-law Jo and Helen as well her as sons-in-law Ken and Walter. Margie’s grandchildren are: Nikko, Fritz, Jannus, Sean, Cathy, Faith, Andrhea and Arianne. Margie’s husband, David and youngest son, Lelan went home to be with the Lord ahead of her. Margie was 83 years old and was known for her sharp wit, her skills in founding her own business during difficult times in the Philippines and her intellectual curiosity even in her last years in her travels to the White House, The Bible Museum, Norfolk Naval station, Udvar Hazy, the Douglas MacArthur Museum, the Smithsonian Natural History Museum, the Washington Zoo, and the Botanical Garden. She also travelled to Texas, California, Florida, New York, Louisiana, Tennessee and Mississippi. Margie believed and trusted the Lord Jesus Christ and she held on the promise of the Lord in Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear or be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Margie had a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus and believed the Lord’s word found in 2 Corinthians 5:8 “We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” She is with the Lord Jesus now, an excellent and awesome place to be! We love you, Ma! We will greatly missed you very much! With the blessed hope from the Lord Jesus, hopefully not very long!
