My Mom died June 25 at 5:00 am. She had breathed her last and went on her final journey into heaven, which we all knew was coming, but the blow of losing her is still with us, and most intensely, with Dad. The ones left standing cry all the tears, and we are no different than any other family. But we have that hope in Christ Jesus, who swallowed death for us. St. Paul reminds us that the final victory awaits us, when all things--people, animals and the universe--will be made new by Jesus Christ and His power to bring everything into submission to His will. And His will is for our good. What He does He does for us. Google and Read 1 Corinthians 15:50-58. And we are forever people because Jesus died for us and paid all that we owed. When you are made debt free, you are freed to serve others who are under a crushing debt. Google and Read Galatians 6:1-10. You are freed because you have been moved from the strike zone to the safe zone of Jesus Christ. Google and Read Colossians 1:1-14. Mom's ending here leads to her beginning there in heaven. And it only gets better. Talk to me about this. God bless and keep you.
