GBRA member Coral Weston has passed
Coral Weston passed this morning. As Joanie stated, “Coral loved her Lord, and is happy and whole again with Him in heaven, nevermore to suffer.” For those if you who never had the opportunity to meet Coral, she was a great lady, a woman of profound character and endurance; brilliant, accomplished, and possessed of a quick-witted sense of humor. Coral was a long time, loyal member of GBRA, her beautiful smile and twinkling eyes will be missed.
Your memories of her are welcome in the comments.
The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God,
and no torment shall touch them.
They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead;
and their passing away was thought an affliction
and their going forth from us, utter destruction.
But they are in peace.
for if to others, indeed, they seem punished,
yet is their hope full of immortality;
Chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed,
because God tried them
and found them worthy of himself.
As gold in the furnace, he proved them,
and as sacrificial offerings he took them to himself.
In the time of their judgment they shall shine
and dart about as sparks through stubble;
They shall judge nations and rule over peoples,
and the LORD shall be their King forever.
Those who trust in him shall understand truth,
and the faithful shall abide with him in love:
Because grace and mercy are with his holy ones,
and his care is with the elect.
