HOLLIS LENA JONES was a beautiful mosaic, and an amazing Woman of God! Her friendship and fellowship were both a Gift and a Reward to me. Uniquely loving and gentle, she was a spiritual giant.. yet, she crossed my life as gracefully as a lovely ballerina, leaping joyfully across the stage of life. She shared my residing JOY IN THE LORD - and that is most-difficult a friend to find.
In life, she was vibrant: a loving, faithful wife, a step-mother, a singer, a world-traveler and ballroom dancer with her beloved husband Cy, a pianist, an interior decorator, a finacial accountant, a poet and an author. I'm sure there is more I never even learned of in the eight short years we were blessed to be Friends.. but in a word, Lena was amazing! Her heart was always to bless someone with the Gospel, and help change a life. We merged our prayer teams at one point, and if I needed rest, she would take over for me.
It shook my faith to its roots when she was diagnosed with cancer..but the LORD strengthened me to her battle with prayer, fastings, and intercessions.. and I believed with her TO THE END, that she would receive her healing and deliverance.
Contrary to what most people think.. Lena DID get her Victory. She now resides in Heaven with our LORD Jesus Christ! And we will meet again one day soon! Until then, she remains steadfastly in my heart and memory. Oh, how I miss you, my Sister! xo Rev. Rhonda
