Remembering Pauline

At the age of 46, Pauline went home silently, or perhaps slipped like a pearl into the land of pearly gates:

“After all,” Anne had said to Marilla once, “I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.” – Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Pauline left behind the people she loved most  — Ninong, and two beloved daughters Yla and Yna, who were 18 and 21 then, respectively.

I wrote about her last days here. Her love letters for her daughters are here.

***

Oh what a life, that was lived for Christ

For Pauline

Oh what a life, that was lived for Christ

Oh what a death, that gains more of Christ

Christ in the dawning, and Christ in the end

Death is the beginning, and death is a friend.

Suffer no more in your earthly body

Flow no more, you wells of pain and tears

Rejoice in His presence, sing for joy in glory

Gaze at your Savior’s smiling face.
