A Memorial for my mom 2-2-2000
The Footprints Are One Now1
by Steve Cope
02-02-2000
In Honor of Mom
Bettejean Adams
08-25-1926 to 02-01-2000

Taking to the
Heavenly realms
Ever seeking

The

Fuller understanding
Of God the Father.
On the beach the
Truth can be seen.
Precious experience
Recognizable
In the granular
Nuggets
That create the pattern
Similar to

The Footprints

As made famous by another writer
Reaching as far as the
Eye can see in either direction.

The Footprints Are

One
Now, for Mom's
Earthly journey has drawn

Nearer to the heart of God.
Oh how there is pain at the loss,
Welling up with each heart beat, for

The Footprints Are One Now and the Savior has called Mom home.


Dedicated to the memory of Mom in appreciation for the influence she had on nine children, nineteen grand children, and twenty-four great grand children.
Betty means "consecrated to God" Joshua 1:9
Jean means "God is gracious" Psalm 37:4

Thank You Father God for consecrating Your creation and for the Grace You so freely give to all who would believe. Your children, Steve and Rhonda Cope, servants in Christ. Amen.
