      Father, we are here on earth to be your people

                    We are here to show others

                 that you came to be their friend.

              Help us to make an eternal difference

                     in someone's life today.

                             - Max Lucado


                   A simple, unassuming woman,

                           Magdalena Tymciw

            lived her life making an eternal difference

              in the lives of all those she prayed for.


                         Never embarrassed

                 to proclaim her Lord and Saviour,

              she shared her faith with all she met

         in loving concern and with her gentle smile.


             Anyone who shared any time with her

            will undoubtedly recall being prayed for

       and encouraged or complimented in some way.


              There is not a neighbour or stranger

         who has spent a moment of conversation with her

         who did not leave knowing of her deep beliefs

                         and faith in Christ.


          In such a humble vessel was a mighty vehicle

                   of the love of God and the Gospel.

                  May we be inspired by her example.


             She was undeniably here on earth to be

                  a Child of God, A Friend to many,

                         an Investor in Eternity.

                 written by her daughter-in-law,

                     Karyl Tymciw, January 2000
