Day 7: Home Sweet Home


ONCE UPON A TIME

there lived a man

who was married

who was a father

who was a grandfather.

Today he is still known as that man who was~

but has been with the

LORD.

ONCE UPON A TIME

GOD knitted him together in his mother's womb

and on this day he was born.

Today we celebrate this man's Birthday in our hearts

as we see his imprint that he left

in the lives & hearts of

his wife, his children & grandchildren

&

in me & in all who have known him.

Even though he is

"absent from the body" here on earth

he is "at home with the LORD" (2 Corinthians 5:6)

only because

he believed and received

JESUS as HIS LORD & SAVIOR

& has

"fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith" (2 Timothy 4:7).

ONCE UPON A TIME

GOD created you

&

ONCE UPON A TIME

HE will take you home

to your real home

to your eternal home

that is a perfect home~

the way GOD intended our home to be from

the very beginning where

"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" (Revelation 21:4)

But for now

as we miss those who have gone before us

& as we continue to live our life here & now

let's not lose hope

as we embrace & keep our eyes peeled on our only hope~

OUR JESUS.

"Therefore we do not lose heart.

Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

For our light and momentary troubles

are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen,

but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal"

(2 Corinthians 4:16)

Because

whether we are here on earth or in heaven~

JESUS

is with us always~

so we are always home.

Happy Birthday John

&

Happy Birthday to yours who have gone ahead before you .

Cherish the memories

and know that

there is so much more than we could ever imagine

where we will live forever & ever & ever

that is beyond our comprehension

because

ONCE UPON A TIME

GOD created perfection

&

ONCE UPON A TIME

we will experience it all again

forever & ever & ever

as we are only

"ALMOST HOME" (listen to the song below)
