    Sad to hear. I just saw it this morning when I checked his blog. She was only 45. I'm not sure what she had, but she had been really sick for quite a while. He had asked for prayer for her several times over the last few months.

    An Apology, In Advance

    My apologies if my blog postings the next few weeks are irregular and not up to snuff. It will be some time before my life, and the lives of my children get back to some semblance of normalcy.

    A Sad Announcement: May The Memsahib Rest in Peace

    After more than a year of struggle, my wife Linda (aka The Memsahib) has passed away.

    My heart is utterly broken, but I take solace knowing that she had a firm and saving faith in God, through his Grace to His Elect, and by the merit of Christ's shed blood. We'll meet again, in heaven.

    Linda's Favorite Hymn

    And Can it Be that I Should Gain?

    And can it be that I should gain
    An interest in the Savior’s blood?
    Died He for me, who caused His pain—
    For me, who Him to death pursued?
    Amazing love! How can it be,
    That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
    Amazing love! How can it be,
    That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

    ’ Tis mystery all: th’Immortal dies:
    Who can explore His strange design?
    In vain the firstborn seraph tries
    To sound the depths of love divine.
    ’ Tis mercy all! Let earth adore,
    Let angel minds inquire no more.
    ’ Tis mercy all! Let earth adore;
    Let angel minds inquire no more.

    He left His Father’s throne above
    So free, so infinite His grace—
    Emptied Himself of all but love,
    And bled for Adam’s helpless race:
    ’ Tis mercy all, immense and free,
    For O my God, it found out me!
    ’ Tis mercy all, immense and free,
    For O my God, it found out me!

    Long my imprisoned spirit lay,
    Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;
    Thine eye diffused a quickening ray—
    I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
    My chains fell off, my heart was free,
    I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.
    My chains fell off, my heart was free,
    I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

    Still the small inward voice I hear,
    That whispers all my sins forgiven;
    Still the atoning blood is near,
    That quenched the wrath of hostile Heaven.
    I feel the life His wounds impart;
    I feel the Savior in my heart.
    I feel the life His wounds impart;
    I feel the Savior in my heart.

    No condemnation now I dread;
    Jesus, and all in Him, is mine;
    Alive in Him, my living Head,
    And clothed in righteousness divine,
    Bold I approach th’eternal throne,
    And claim the crown, through Christ my own.
    Bold I approach th’eternal throne,
    And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

    Words by Charles Wesley, 1738. Music by Thomas Campbell, 1825.

    Memorial Services and Condolences

    We are not planning a public memorial service. Please do not send cards or e-mails of condolence. Linda told me that she would much prefer that that you spend that time and effort in sharing the Gospel of Christ with those that are unsaved.

    If you feel convicted to do anything in memory of Linda, then please support our favorite charity, the Anchor orphanage and school in Zambia. They are setting up a Linda Rawles Memorial Fund. I will post details on donations, in the next few days. Thanks for your prayers.

    With sincerity, - James Wesley, Rawles

    I'm very sorry for Jim Rawles. I had the pleasure of meeting him at the Reno gun show in 2005. Had never heard of the man before and had no clue who I'd just met. As far as first impressions go he struck me as an upstanding man, and following his blog since shortly after that has done nothing to change my mind. I enjoyed Linda's occasional posts as well. I was saddened to learn of her illness and yet very surprised when it was made known that her illness was terminal. I never did hear what it was specifically, I don't know if I just missed it or if it was a tightly kept secret of some kind.

    My heart goes out to the surviving Rawles family, I know she will be missed. I am confident she is in a place without pain now and that has to be a relief on everyone's heart and mind.

    "His site was the first one I read when I started down this path"

    Mine as well. Going on 4 years ago. Don't know exactly why, but it struck a chord with me and I have been on the path ever since. I actually felt strongly enough about preparedness, once I learned what it was, to close a 10 year design business and open a preparedness store in Colorado called the Ready Room (now defunct). Unfortunately ahead of the curve (Jan-June 200

    Jim was kind enough to give me a plug on his website. I really feel for him; what a gaping wound in his soul he must endure.
