May your soul rest in peace – My grandma


‘I promise God to sacrifice a lamb if I die’

My grandma wished death to come quick on her last days. My father, in an attempt to raise her morals, joked, how would you sacrifice a lamb when you are dead?

After struggling with cancer for two years, and after more than two months being stuck to her bed without being able to move and serve herself, pain and tiresome got to her where she wished death to come quick in order for her to rest.

With all of her pain and struggle, she never lost her faith in God. She kept on praying till her last days and hoping for God to release her pain. Three days before she passed away, she had the communion bread and blood of Jesus, she raised her head and said “God, in you hands I rest my soul” and then she went directly into a coma.

A saint, she has always been. Her faith in God has always been too strong. Her father was a priest, and she was raised on strong christian values. Coming from a very wealthy family, she never looked for material fulfillment. Even when her family lost all of their wealth and land because of the Israeli occupation, she remained untouched. She never moaned or whined for the lost wealth. She lived a poor life, but kept her soul richness. She has always rich with her content and love for people. Her muse was helping others, and her only comfort in her last days was the visits of people who loved her. Whenever a person visited her, she wanted him/her to come near and hold her hand. Her human love was unmatchable, and it came all back to her with her husband, 6 children, 19 grandchildren, and another 19 grand-grandchildren all praying for her and crying from her leave.

A few weeks ago, she dreamt that she was cured and that she is running in the street celebrating her health while asking my grandpa to bring sweets for all the family and friends to celebrate this moment. When she woke up, she realized that it was a dream and started crying.

But I guess that it wasn’t a dream, it is most probably a vision where she is now walking and running in heaven, celebrating her life with the God she always believed in and prayed for.

May you soul rest in peace my grandma. You know how much we all love you.
