August 15, 1938 - May 10, 2021
王世菊，生于1938年8月15日湖北襄樊。熟悉她的人对她有个昵称：王妈妈。王妈妈在中国大陆和美国渡过了将近83个春秋，她一生丰富多彩，甚至充满了许多传奇的故事。 王妈妈与黄伯伯于1961年在武汉结为伉俪。婚后育有三个女儿。大女儿，黄翠红在北京。二女儿，黄洁， 和三女儿黄新，在美国居住。王妈妈有5个孙子孙女，还有2个重孙分别在北京和上海。她的孙子孙女们学业有成，让王妈妈深得安慰。 年轻的时候，王妈妈考入重型机械技术学校，随后在重型军工厂工作二十多年，直到退休。王妈妈天性善良，热情奔放，与同事们建立了终生的友谊，受到大家的尊敬和爱戴。 1996年王妈妈首次来到了美国，帮二女儿做月子。期间，查经班的姐妹邀请她参加了华人基督教退休会。王妈妈在会中感受到神的大爱，并在退休会期间决志信主，成为上帝的女儿。 信主后，王妈妈的生命发生了巨大的改变。每天口唱心和赞美主。她常常读经，祷告，踊跃参加教会的各种活动，心中充满了对主的爱和对弟兄姐妹的爱。她也天天为自己的家人，儿女，孙辈代祷，常常为他们排忧解难，说安慰鼓励的话。她的祷告充满了权柄和能力，成为全家的祝福。 王妈妈还特别有传福音的恩赐，完全不以福音为耻。无论是在飞机上，火车上，在公园，在餐馆，对亲朋好友，或陌生人，逢人便问，“你信耶稣了吗？” 近10年来，她常常说，之所以她还活着，就是要传福音，为主做美好的见证，拯救失丧的灵魂。 现在，王妈妈卸下世间的劳苦，回到上帝的怀抱，进入永远的荣耀里。她不再需要相信，不再需要盼望，因为她已经进入那极其美好的，永远的，上帝的国度！ 今天，我们大家相聚在一起，缅怀王妈妈璀璨的一生。我们都将记住，上帝的儿女是何等的有福！哈利路亚，赞美主！ Zoom Link for service Saturday 12 noon https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81860072131 By Yili Wu: Thank you to everyone who came to show regards to my grandmother. While it devastates me that I cannot be there in person today, I know she is looking down seeing how love outpours to her from every corner on the earth: as the sun rises in Hawaii and many look up now for a glimmer of her from China. My grandmother was the embodiment of unconditional love and pure joy. I can hardly recount a memory of her where she wasn’t smiling or singing songs of praise. Her only wish for us was to be happy, healthy, and full: full bellies of handmade dumplings and full hearts of gratitude. If there’s anything we should learn from my grandmother’s full life, it is to not only be grateful for the simplest things in life, but to be joyous because of them. Growing up in the United States, as a child I found it odd when she would take a sip of milk and exclaim, “哈利路亚赞美主!” Now I realize she has overcome so much in her lifetime that everyday is a blessing to be excited about. To me, she was always resilient, creative, expressive, and active even in her last days. I would brag to my friends about her superior flexibility at her old age, and along with her constant exuberant attitude, it made her seem invincible. She was a light in this world, and happiness would overflow from her spirit typically in the form of song. I’m grateful to have been raised by my grandmother who taught me not to stress over anything, and to enjoy each day appreciating the small things which are in hindsight magnified by the pandemic, big things, like simply being surrounded by family and cooking dinner for each other. The mundane became magnificent in her eyes. I feel lucky to know what unconditional love is due to her enduring love, kindness, and support. She hated seeing me feel upset over anything, and so as much as I grieve her loss, I know she would not wish for any of us to feel sadness today. Many of you will likely remember her as someone smiling, laughing, or singing, whether it is in the church choir or just an ordinary day. Even in her old age, her heart remained youthful, lively, and fun. Let’s honor and celebrate her life by retaining these happy memories of her as a beacon of positivity. I’m comforted that this is not goodbye forever, and one day we will hear her sing again in Heaven. By Michael Wu: Hi everyone, thank you for coming to pay respects to my grandmother. I really appreciate it. Allow me to get straight to the point. While I didn’t speak to her very often, I know that my grandma loved the Lord. She was always sending me WeChats telling me to read the Bible, even and especially when I didn’t respond. She was always praying for me, which is the most amazing thing. Knowing that God is absolutely faithful, good, and sovereign, what a gift it is to have someone just praying for you consistently! My mom tells me often how my grandmother was just in worship when I got into college, and later when I got into a PhD program. It’s interesting, even while everyone else in the family was still unsure about where I would go and where God was sending me, she was completely confident and at peace as soon as I got the acceptance letters. As it turns out, I’ll be going exactly to the school that she knew I would go to. It’s crazy to think about, actually. There’s something different about how the Lord reveals things to old grandmas. When I reflect on the life and death of my grandma, it reminds of a passage from 2 Timothy 4, where Paul writes about the coming end of his life: For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing. - 2 Timothy 4:6-8 My grandma has finished her race. She is with the Lord now, face to face. Where she is, there is no hurt or pain or suffering, and every tear is wiped away. There, the glory of the Lord is revealed in full, without sin to blind us from it. There, the imperfect has passed away, and only the perfect remains. One day, I’ll finish my race too, and I’ll meet her, the Lord, and all others who have believed. Unlike on earth, there will be no language barrier on that day, but only perfect fellowship. But until then, let us all run with endurance the race set out for us, pursuing Christ, who renews our strength.
