It Ain't Over....

Lately there have been lots of sudden funerals....Lots of shocked people...lots of tears...
lots of "what happened?"...lots of remember whens.

This afternoon I am going to a funeral of a boy I grew up and graduated with. I came across some words from Max Lucado...that were pretty timely.

"Finally, the moment! Can you envision it?

Heaven! We’re about to enter His presence!

We don’t deserve it. We haven’t earned it.

We may even surprise the angels.

Angels are making the music. The music is like none we’ve ever heard. Suddenly, silence. Now, light—blinding light—as the Maestro steps into view.

Soon, we will walk with Him, talk with Him, and worship as He leads.

Soon God, the Author of Life and Composer of Hope, will speak our name—a name so mysterious and full o promise that only He knows it. It is our name—a new name—a name totally our own to be ours alone for all the days we spend in Heaven.

. . . our highest hope.

It’s the end of the journey.

It’s the beginning of eternal life.

It’s the moment you don’t want to miss."

~Max Lucado


Now that is some news to smile about!
God, Thank You....for Lizzie and Billy. May they rest in peace...and those that they leave behind know that this is not the end.

In His Dust,
