“Jesus, unlike the founder of any other major faith, holds out hope for ordinary human life. Our future is not an ethereal, impersonal form of consciousness. We will not float through the air, but rather will eat, embrace, sing, laugh, and dance in the kingdom of God, in degrees of power, glory, and joy that we can’t at present imagine.

Jesus will make the world our perfect home again. We will no longer be living ‘east of Eden,’ always wandering and never arriving. We will come, and the father will meet us and embrace us, and we will be brought into the feast.”

– Timothy Keller, The Prodigal God (New York, NY: Dutton, 2008), 104.

    I think of you two often late at night. People I have never met, but remember when I can’t sleep because I am missing my son. Christians who stand in faith and share their journey with honesty and encouragement to others. I am so sorry for your terrible losses, one after the other in a way that is unimaginable. I am so grateful for the strength of your faith and the encouraging words you share as you work out what it means to move on.
    May God bless you and provide comfort as you live out your life here and have hope for heaven.

    Peace,
