my first encounter
I thought she was an angel
the way she welded the power of God

built like a farmer, with the authority of a school teacher
good cook and adventurous soul
but a woman of God above all else
and at that a woman mightily used by God

someone not to be messed with
a spade was always a spade
but a heart after God
made things safe

an intercessor
a conduit for the Holy Spirit
a risk taker
a catalyst

and now she has gone
gone to a better place
still interceding
just without the constraints of this world

she will be missed
as she waits upon our arrival
a warrior on earth
and now a saint in heaven

see you soon Barbara
