Murphin Ridge, our favorite place. Kim is cancer free and we rejoice. Cancer is a terrible disease.
She is the one who inspired me to begin knitting. Her husband is sporting Brooklyntweed's Turn a Square hat. We were able to spend some evenings knitting, she on a baby blanket and I am finishing up a scarf.
Last night we received word that our dad is failing and will be making his residence in Heaven soon. My second grandchild is also due any day. Lots on my mind as I pack and make preparations. Life is short and eternity is forever.
Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope.
We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.
For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
Therefore encourage each other with these words.
I Thessalonians 4:13-18
