As a believer

Who has had to say good-bye to some that I loved dearly, including my daughter...
I have to sometimes pull my head out of this world we live in and cling to -- When I recall God's word and His description of Heaven I feel silly that I would cling to this corrupt (as in devolving physically) world -- while resisting the transition to a place of beauty that is beyond my ability to comprehend -- where the Bible says, we'll have perfect bodies typically about the stage of a 30 year old -- forever.

No more pain, no more suffering, no more struggle with human nature.

A beautiful existence that I can only imagine right now.

When I see it in those terms the weight of death leaves me.

The Bible says "Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints." Psalm 116:15.
Precious... He longs to share life directly with us, his beloved creations.
How I get there doesn't matter... a misdiagnosis, a head-on collision with a drunk, or texting fool, whatever...
