Tammy Faye’s suffering came to an end on Friday, July 20th when she finally transitioned from the material to the spiritual world after a prolonged battle with cancer. She was 65.
Tammy’s towering spiritual state was evident during her last interview with Larry King the week before she passed. She appeared on live TV looking completely ravaged by her incurable disease, which had reduced her weight to a skeletal 65 pounds. Ever the trooper, Tammy sought to convey her spiritual state of mind and physical sense of being to Larry in heartwrenching detail. Her strong identity with her divine nature held any hint of vanity or fear in check as she explained to Larry and his viewers her daily courtship with death. The ability she demonstrated to endure the physical torment the disease was inflicting upon her as she spoke to Larry was astonishing and reminiscent of the passion of the Chirst. Her love of God’s creation and the life he had gifted her with caused her to hold onto its last precious moments until her final breath. She ultimately surrendered her soul to the Lord she loved so much. Her humble and loving nature, which is so scarce these days, will be missed by those she ministered to and sought to uplift with her compassionate words. Tammy learned her spiritual lessons well, and practiced them with the utmost sincerity until her worldly sojurn reached its mortal conclusion. Tammy held onto the most important attachment of her life, the love and all pervasive presence of Jesus Christ, until she passed through the viels of time and into the infinite dimensions of spirit.
May Tammy’s journey through the afterlife be both serene and rapturous, and may a continuous stream of pure prayer and angelic chorous guide her to the resplendent empyrean, where God’s dwells in the form of fire surrounded by supplicating angels, beyond the realms of time in a graceful paradise.
Tammy, you will be loved, missed and your memory will live on and be cherished by many until this era is long forgotten. May the Lord gather you up in his merciful arms and forever shower you with divine kisses.
Love is patient, Love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
It keeps no records of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes,
Love never fails
… I COR 13:4-8 NIV
