Sherri Dawn, God’s Angel, returned to Heaven this week…
Today we are saying goodbye to an Angel.  Her name was Sherri Dawn.

In 1959 Sherri arrived to begin her journey of blessing her family. She didn’t stop with just the family – she also blessed each person that she came in contact with over the years and in every part of the community.

Last Monday, January 28 she slipped away from this world and went back to where she came from.  Today she is walking around the most beautiful place one can imagine.

The Bible is filled with accounts of Angels bringing important messages from God himself. He chooses which Angel would be best suited to deliver a particular message from his throne.  Some brought messages of warning, others message of encouragement.

Sometimes the message was listened to and other times it was rejected to the peril of the listeners.

Each Bible account of where an Angel came to announce something really important is given in detail.  Every major turning point spoken about in the Bible often included an Angel speaking or doing something on behalf of God himself.  From the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation there is mention of Heavenly Beings interacting with this world.  When it happened men thought it was important so they wrote it down… thus the Bible.

But somehow as men became so intelligent and so powerful they really didn’t need God or His instructions or guidance any longer. That old way was stupid and not worthy of important people.  They just wouldn’t listen to what He had to say.

It’s doesn’t take long reading the news of today and the issues that the world faces today to see that men and women in their modern, brilliant, sophisticated way – have Royally screwed it all up.

About the time that people were doing their best to mess things up, God started sending new Angels… ones like Sherri Dawn.  Sherri Dawn had a message straight from God… but it wasn’t in so many words rather in actions and reactions to the world she lived in.

The family and friends saw what she did. They heard her words and her humour. They sometimes listened and other times might have taken her for granted… the way most of us do. We rush around our busy lives, get involved in relationships that are not good for us, strain at things that drive us nuts when we simply want it our own way… trying our best with our brilliant and sometimes ridiculous ways of living… just to get it our way.

Sherri Dawn’s way was not to have anything to do with the way that those around her lived.  I think she knew better.

Some in the family enjoyed the interaction with her.  One such interaction that they spoke of was when they tried to get Sherri Dawn to pick between one of them… as being her favorite.  She simply wouldn’t say.  It was light heartedly done with her… but she stuck to her guns and wouldn’t say who was favorite.  They could be rascals, they could be saints, they could be naughty or nice… she wouldn’t make a choice of one over the other. It didn’t matter what you did Sherri Dawn kept everyone the same.

Stopping to think of that over these past days I realized that is pretty much the way that God does it as well. He doesn’t have favorites when he deals with us.

I work inside and outside the Federal Prison system in Canada. I have met some really bad dudes that for the most part, everyone hates their guts for what they did.  But when they finally get their act together – God simply shows them his continued love for them.

That action on part of God is called “Grace” – and he shows His Grace to all.

Then every so often He sends a messenger with Big Message for all that will listen.

Sherri Dawn brought that message to her family and friends. She then stayed until the message was delivered for them all to hear.

After they all had heard, God called her home.

How could Sherri be so different?  Sherri Dawn came delivered to her family as a Down Syndrome child… specially crafted and designed to show love to everyone.

On the side… she didn’t like ‘Thunder Storms’. A number of my Down Syndrome friends are the same. They hate the Lightning and Thunder.  Have you ever wondered why?

My simple suggestion is that when they lived in Heaven… Heaven doesn’t have the storms that we do on Earth.  God keeps the big storms confined to our world.  And when Angels come here… they are simply not used to any of that… but they stick it out until their message has been delivered.

Hebrews 13 tells me a lot about Angels… and how we should live… Quote…
Hebrews 13 1-4 Stay on good terms with each other, held together by love. Be ready with a meal or a bed when it’s needed. Why, some have extended hospitality to angels without ever knowing it! Regard prisoners as if you were in prison with them. Look on victims of abuse as if what happened to them had happened to you. Honor marriage, and guard the sacredness of sexual intimacy between wife and husband. God draws a firm line against casual and illicit sex.
5-6 Don’t be obsessed with getting more material things. Be relaxed with what you have. Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” we can boldly quote,
God is there, ready to help; I’m fearless no matter what. Who or what can get to me? – End quote

Thank you Sherri Dawn for what you did for our world and my friends.  Enjoy what you have earned and the place you are in right now.  We will miss you… but love and live with your memory.

God truly blessed us with Sherri Dawn!
