+Ruth Kelley

Asleep in our Lord Jesus this morning.  Rest eternal grant her, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon her.  Pr. Gleason will have her funeral here at St. Paul's on Saturday at 10.  Ruth holds a special place in my heart - injured in a terrible car accident that took her husband's life, she has been home bound ever since I came to St. Paul's.  In the last year or so her cheerful, upbeat spirit has flagged under the weight of suffering - it's a comfort to believe her released from that:  "You have delivered my soul from death, my ears from tears, my feet from stumbling.  I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living."

I miss Ruth. She was always a joy to visit.
