I am so thankful for Jesus Christ who came to earth, born of a virgin and lived a sinless life; professed the love of His Father for all; total forgiveness of sins upon repentance; suffered for the message He delivered; was crucified and rose again on the third day.
It is because of this belief I was taught as a child, and accepted as my own, that I have the assurance I will once again be reunited with my loved ones who have gone before me in death. This belief becomes stronger with each home going I experience. I am grateful God is preparing a home for me in glory and that one day all the chains of sin, death, disease, aging, blindness and unbelief will be broken.
But my prayer remains, as my Mama taught me, if there is one who doesn't know Jesus as Lord and Savior, may they come to accept him before breath leaves their body, In Jesus' Name, Amen!
