A collection of events gave birth to our Social Hospice/end-of-life home here in the Grove area. Who would have thought that a forty-year-old angel collection would be present and an ever-mindful part of such a beautiful endeavor? Cindie continues to love and be so aware of angels and how they do God’s bidding. Angelic presence and how they do God’s bidding. Angelic presence and protection marked every critical moment in Jesuses’ life. Thus; the name, “Heavenly Angels House” took life. This Social Hospice/end-of-life home will be a loving and humanitarian service for the terminally ill and their families.
Cindie and her family were witnesses to such an awesome display of the oxymoron, “bittersweet” emotions during their mother’s last physical days on earth. The bitterness of knowing their mother would be leaving them and the sweetness of the most loving, respectful, compassionate care during her last two days of life. The home and her room were so tranquil in spirit, color, cleanliness, and help, it gave peace to our hearts and lifted each family member of any emotional/physical burden. Our roles had reversed, we became the daughters and the son instead of the caretakers. Mary Margaret Maxson took her last breath January 19, 2014 in the Social Hospice home, the “Clarehouse” in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Unbeknownst to Cindie, our God had a plan and purpose for her last years on this earth. It was his Will that she would pave the way to get a Social Hospice Home up and operating in Grove, Oklahoma. Stunned by the calling of God’s Will upon her heart and in her mind on February 11, 2016 she began to pray, contemplate; “How could this be?” God continued to tug at Cindie’s heart and reveal to her over and over the urgency and need for this home. Confirmations came to her with three specific and profound God-like moments in the following year; a Bible study class studying “Faith”, where she was prompted and compelled to begin sharing what God had placed on her heart; missionary friends who had a dying grandmother in her own home, and the meeting with Kelly Scott, director of the Clarehouse where her mother took her last breath.
Being obedient to God’s Will, Cindie did not stutter or stammer and found herself with the early beginnings of the Heavenly Angels House in the first part of 2017. The mission statement, core values, objectives were created and a very specific prayer (*) and scripture (Colossians 9:14) were read daily and prayed over and over and over. With her husband Gary at her side, they both became convicted to God’s Will to be fulfilled. Through many conversations and prayers, their confidence and faith began to grow and they both slowly began sharing with dear friends this vision. Next was the application of all the paper work needed to establish the incorporation of the Heavenly Angels House and as a nonprofit organization, thus the beginning.
Cindie not surprised but always amazed as God continues to supply what is needed for this journey. Cindie realizes there is no work that God gives that is too small and at no time in one’s life that a person is unusable. Her commitment to see the Heavenly Angels House up and operating is unfailing; never to waiver, never to give in, and never to move anywhere but forward with God’s Love.
