Prayer request: My Sister-in-law, Barbara Robinson has passed away
March 24, 2008 | Jim Robinson

My sister-in-law, Barbara Robinson, passed away on Saturday. She had been suffering from cancer for several months. She had underwent radiation therapy and they thought it was gone, but it came back a couple months later and caused much pain and suffering before it took her life. She was a devoted wife, mother and dear friend. My brother, Don Robinson, is heartbroken and feeling lost. They had been sweethearts since they first met as teenagers. They had been married for over forty years. He and his family are in need of prayer.

Barbara also leaves her surviving children, Jeanette Draper and Jackie Harris and grandson Eric Robinson. Her son Don Jr. preceded her in death. She also leaves her loving father Lawrence Baker and brothers Mike, David and Timothy and sister Kathy. The Robinson and Baker families have been very close these last forty plus years. We’ve traveled and camped together from one end of California to the other. Barbara was like a mother to us all. She cared for us and looked out for us. She was always there when anyone needed her. She especially looked out for me and Sheila after she had her stroke. She came over three times a week to help Sheila bathe and dress, cleaned our house and fixed our lunch. And, as I was working at my desk, she made sure my cup or glass was never empty. She was a great and loving friend to us all. We will remember her always.

God bless.

PRAYERS LIFTED FOR COMFORT!

I may say to those of you also who have been bereaved—if you believe in providence you may grieve; but your grief must not be excessive. I remember at a funeral of a friend hearing a pretty parable which I have told before, and will tell again. There was much weeping on account of the loss of a loved one, and the minister put it thus. He said, “Suppose you are a gardener employed by another; it is not your garden, but you are called upon to tend it, and you have your wages paid you. You have taken great care with a certain number of roses; you have trained them up, and there they are, blooming in their beauty. You pride yourself upon them. You come one morning into the garden, and you find that the best rose has been taken away. You are angry: you go to your fellow-servants, and charge them with having taken the rose. They will declare that they had nothing at all to do with it; and one says, “I saw the master walking here this morning; I think he took it.” Is the gardener angry then? No, at once he says, “I am happy that my rose should have been so fair as to attract the attention of the master. It is his own: he hath taken it; let him do what seemeth him good.”

Prayers for Don, and their children, and family.
May the Good Lord comfort them through their loss.
Although hearts may be broken, may they focus through the haze on HE who it is said:
"He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it."

Of which, as Paul said, 'we have hope toward God (who cannot lie) that there shall be a resurrection of the dead'.

Although this is a sorrowful parting, may the LORD strengthen Don and his family to see the Light of eternity that glimmers brightly through the storm clouds of today.
God Bless.

Lord Jesus, we pray for the family of Barbara Robinson in their time of loss. May Your Spirit comfort and strengthen them. As her spirit is committed into Your eternal care, so may all of us commit ourselves to You as if eternity were already upon us. We pray in Jesus’ Name; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Father God,

I pray that you reveal Yourself to Don in this sorrowful time. We know that ‘our ways are not Your ways; our thoughts not Your thoughts’ and so, as things happen in life that we don’t understand or can’t reconcile with an awesome, loving God, we need to know you’re there to carry us through and fill the emptiness that’s left with your love, guidance, wisdom, peace, serenity and hope.

In Jesus’ name we pray.

Amen.

When Sheila said that Barbara wasn’t doing very well, I didn’t realize that she was this bad.

Father, please be with Don Robinson and his family at this time of great sorrow. Hold them close as you give them comfort. Please welcome Barbara into Heaven to sit by your side. Please give Jim and Sheila comfort. Please Bless the Robinson family. In Jesus Name. Amen.

And may the God of All Healing take hold of each broken heart, that warm memories of times past will give strength for tomorrow. And may the Lamb of God provide assurance that joyous reunion awaits.
