I want to share a very recent happening that is full of sadness, yet alive with joy! Just one day beyond her 88th birthday, my mother passed away. Tears poured and memories soared. My loss is still extremely fresh, almost overwhelming at times, but as I mourn her passing, I wholeheartedly rejoice in God's promise that one day I'll see her again. How do I know this? Simply by trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ and believing in His Written Word. "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself; that, where I am, there ye may be also." (John 14:1-3) These verses clearly address a believer's homecoming. A celebration of eternal life.
