Here I am this morning sitting with my Bible in my thinking about some wonderful godly friends and family that have slipped away into heaven… Some from accidents, others from disease, others for a variety of reasons. Sweet memories!! Wonderful, wonderful people!! So dear to me!!
I’m sure some of you have memories of dear ones to you – sons, daughters, parents, other family members and dear friends who have died and are now with the Lord! We miss them so much! But, nevertheless, sweet memories!!
Here are some verses I read this morning during my time of “coffee with the Lord” that prompted these thoughts… I send them your way this morning…
“Then I heard a voice from heaven say… ‘Blessed are the dead in the Lord!’ ‘Yes,’ says the Spirit, ‘they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.’” (Revelation 14:13)
May these word from the Bible bring you comfort today! May your memories be sweet and precious!! More than that, may the hope of a wonderful reunion one day fill your heart and mind!!
So… here I am – along with you – this Christmas season savoring sweet memories of wonderful Christians who have gone on ahead of us – wonderful followers of Jesus – who have left us a godly legacy and reliable path to follow into the eternal life and incredible destiny the God has prepared for those who love Him. ‘Blessed! … Yes blessed! Their deeds follow them!”
