For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
Words can never express how one feels at the loss of a loved one, especially a parent. Seems this week has been one of those weeks where time and purpose have married. One generation of parents have crossed over and a new generation of parents has now dawned upon us. New trees are developing with each season of change and the baton has been handed off to begin a new race.
We'll miss you mom but we know that you are now resting from your labor. When Christ returns for us, we will be caught up together to meet Him in the AIR! I love you mom and will miss you more than words could ever express. I thank God that your final resting place is with Him!!! This is not a good-bye but a see-you-in-a-little-while...
Dearest Mom, you fought the good fight of faith and finished your earthly journey... (2 Tim 4:7-8)
