A Poem by Nancy Lee Shrader

For my dear friend Lillian Blankenship.




With dignity and grace

Lillian walked through this life

Always a smile she wore

Even as life brought her strife


Lillian’s ministry grew

With each card filled with love

With a smile on His face

God looked down from above


In her darkest moments

Lillian’s cards still came

Reaching out to others

In the Almighty’s name


Lillian’s special gift

Made so many smile

Thinking of others

She walked her last mile


In the Lamb’s book of life

God wrote her name down

Angels have set so many jewels

 In Lillian’s golden crown


God smiled as Lillian

Crossed the crystal sea

Holding His Son’s hand

God declared His decree


Lillian, come up hither

Sit next to My Throne

My daughter you are

Your heart I’ve known


You’ll suffer no more

Gone is your pain

You’ll now dance with Jesus

In heaven’s warm healing rain


I’ve prepared you a mansion

Your name is on the door

Lillian Blankenship, my child

My daughter, I adore
