Rest Well Oma . . . Well Done Indeed!

Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.  But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:50-57)
Death, physical death MUST occur in order to experience the abundant life (John 10:10) described in the bible. Death is a natural process for all life, but even more special for the one who knows and lives for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

While death cause separation and grief here upon the earth, it brings joy and singing in heaven and for eternity for the soul being escorted to the King of kings. While we here on this side of glory don't quite understand the process, the one in the presence of their Creator God now know!

So we rejoice as well, no matter how difficult. We live on the legacy of our loved one now awaiting our homecoming. To live is Christ but to die is gain. (Philippians 1:21)

Enjoy your rest Oma! Well done Mom! Thank you for your labor of love and sacrifice. Talk to our Lord and Savior for us when you are able. We will need the help.

I am grateful that you allowed me to have your beautiful daughter and you and Dad accepted me as your own son! We are so grateful for God lending you to us and showing us how to give without taking, bend without breaking, and to live without faking!

We will see you soon. . . .eternity awaits us all who trust Him! We will continue the work . . . .

Storms and Faith

Jesus got into a boat. His disciples followed him.  Suddenly a terrible storm came up on the lake. The waves crashed over the boat. But Jesu...
