Day 12: Happy Birth~Day


Today is a day

I celebrate the

Birth of a man

who is no longer with us.

Tears overwhelm my heart

as I think of his smile

and as I think of his family

who miss him so,

even though

he is

dancing with our LORD.

He left this earth

in January

in a tragic way.

So how do you say

THANK YOU GOD

when instead you want to say

WHY GOD?

As we all have loved ones

who are also with

THE LORD

in their eternal home~

where one day we will all be~

"And this is the way to have eternal life—

to know you, the only true

GOD, & JESUS CHRIST

the one you sent to earth." John 17:3

We know it.

We believe it.

But it is so hard to grasp

in the midst of great sorrow

because the love is so great.

But we say

THANK YOU GOD~

"For this world is not our permanent home;

we are looking forward to a home yet to come." Hebrews 13: 14

But we say

THANK YOU GOD~

"We’re citizens of high heaven!

We’re waiting the arrival of the

SAVIOR the Master, JESUS CHRIST,

who will transform our earthy bodies into glorious bodies like HIS own.

HE'LL make us beautiful and whole with the same powerful skill by which

HE is putting everything as it should be, under and around him." Philippians 3:20-21

But we say

THANK YOU GOD~

"HE will wipe every tear from their eyes.

There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain,

for the old order of things has passed away." Revelations 21:4

So

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

JOHN

We remember you

as you are forever in our hearts

and we miss you

but we look up and say

THANK YOU GOD

because

You are with HIM!

May GOD envelope you with

HIS Peace and HIS Presence

as you think of a loved one

who is no longer living in our

TEMPORARY HOME (Listen below)
