My mom died today

    My mom died around 5:30 pm. I am so devastated. My mom was my best friend. She did not always agree with my choices, but there was still love there. I will admit, there were only two people that I loved, my mom and my twin brother, David. But my love for my twin brother dwindled when he started treating mom like dirt. My mom was far from perfect, but she loved us all.

    My mom had children that did not like her because she would point out wrongdoing. My mom would do that to me as well. I did not always like it, but I still loved her.

    I don't know how to live without her. Don't take this the wrong way. I am not an adult who is living in my parent's basement. I took care of myself. But I called my mother every time I needed comfort. I am so heartbroken right now.

    My sister is asking me to not shut her out. I have a tendency to do that when I am sad. I don't want to go to her funeral. All her kids, even the ones that treated her poorly, would be there. I want to tell them how I feel the way they treated her; and it would not be nice.

    My mom loved the Lord. She has an amazing testimony on how she got saved. She was saved in 1969 during the Jesus movement, and she never wavered in her faith. She spoke in tongues the moment she got saved, and she didn't even know what tongues were. Nobody coached her or tried to get her to speak in tongues, she just did it. She also believed in the Torah. She believed in observing the sabbath. She also believed in observing the Jewish holidays. She also believed in the diets that written in the old testament. She knew that Christ was her salvation, and not in observing those things. But she wanted to honor God in observing the Torah.

    Even though she was treated like dirt by some people, she was loved by her other kids and friends. People constantly told her that she was deceived. But she continue to live by her convictions. My mom had an anger issue, and sometimes swore, but she was praying and asking God's forgiveness for her anger issues. Thank God that he is merciful.

    I do not want to attend the funeral. Her kids will be there, and I want to yell at them and tell them how angry I am for the way they treated her. I am so emotional that if I saw them, I would have lost control of what comes out of my mouth.

    Please pray for our family.

    I am so bitterly sorry, my dear brother.

    Dry your tears and remember, this is not farewell. You will see her again. Just hold on to Jesus to comfort you through this intense pain. I pray for you...

    My heart goes out to you and I will most certainly be lifting you and your family up in prayer. Thank you for sharing a bit about your mother- such a wonderful story about how she first met Jesus. May the peace of the Lord be with you.

    It is a sad day for us, but the best day for her. She is no longer in pain. She is with her king, and with my dad and sister.

    Beloved one, would your mother agree with you to be angry with your twin brother ? Though she may have been offended —Would not your mother want you and your brother to be reconciled with one another ? Wouldn’t she want you to be with peace with one another? I don’t deny that you were hurt how your brother mistreated your mother. Just as you deny to be at the funeral to be angry at them, beloved one, deny to hold resentment against them.

    My mother also have passed away. I humbled myself that I may have sinned against her, my father, brother and sisters — however,
    they may have wronged me first —I asked for their forgiveness.

    Beloved one, the Lord gave me assurance of peace that my mother is safe with Him, for she is in His hands.

    Beloved one, leave for your mother a legacy of reconciliation and peace.

    May God’s peace be with you in every way. Amen

    Extremely sorry for your loss my friend.

    Please, go to her funeral. Go for 'her'. Dont worry about who else will be there. Focus on your mum.

    May she rest in peace.

    God bless you, comfort you and give you strength at this very sad time my friend.

    Take care...

    I'm sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you and your loved ones during this time. It's understandable you're upset and hurt. Give yourself an opportunity to say goodbye and grieve with your loved ones. The moment of togetherness won't be forgotten. :yellowheart:

    I'm sorry for your loss.

    I would advise you to go to your mom's funeral, to show your mom the last respects and for closure.

    I advice not to argue with the people that did your mom wrong. The church is God's house. Forgive them if possible.

    Maybe it would help to ask if your mom would want you to go, and how she would want you to treat others there if so. Maybe you have a chance to do one last thing for her?
