Reflections for Agent Mayra Del Carmen Ramírez-Barreto

Mayra, Rest well in the Presence of God.

To Your Family,
Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray, “Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with loving, caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name, Amen”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for 23 months. Feel those prayers. God is with you, He knows and will ease your pain.

Que lindo organizaron tu despedida. El ataud blanco con detalles en oro y casket de rosas y ginger color rojo, jamás lo olvidaré. Estaba cerrado, pero, vi fotos con tu rostro lleno de alegría en diferentes facetas de tu vida profesional y familiar. Los delicados arreglos florales denotan el aprecio genuino hacia tu persona y desempeño. El enviado por la Unidad de Extradiciones y el de la Policía de Nueva York, muy curiosos. Simplemente, lo hiciste bien. Estoy orgullosa de ti, pero, hay que dejarte ir al lugar que Dios tiene para ti. Descase en paz Mayra Ramírez.

There are so many things we would choose to change if we could ... The counsel of the Lord stands forever,The plans of his heart to all generations ..Psalm 33:11

If You Could See Me Now..

If you could see me now you wouldn’t shed a tear.
Though you may not understand why I’m no longer there.
Remember my spirit that is the real me because I’m still very
Much alive, I’ve just been set free, Oh, if you could only see!
I have beheld our Father’s face and I’ve touched my Savior’s
Hand. All of Heaven’s angels rejoiced as I entered the promised
Land. Beyond the gates of pearl I’ve walked on the golden streets.
I’ve touched the walls of jasper and dipped my foot in the
Crystal sea. The beauty is beyond words and nothing could
Compare, I’ve even seen your mansion and someday
I’ll meet you there. Let Jesus be your guide because
His Word will show you the way! So please don’t
Cry because we will meet again someday.

God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain; but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.
