It has been 42 years since my dad passed away. There has hardly been a week that has gone by that I don’t recall a word of advice, a memory, or a picture of my dad flashes in my mind. I was blessed to have had a great relationship with my dad. Yes, there were tears shed at his passing and many times I long for his presence, but one day we will gather new memories. There is comfort in knowing loved ones have eternal life.
Don’t pass up an opportunity to share the greatest news.
" … He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away. And He who sits on the throne said, ‘Behold, I am making all things new.’" Revelation 21:4-5a (NASB)
John 10:28, "I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them ou t of my hand." (NIV)
