Today my spark friend was put to rest today and so was a lady in our community. Death is never easy and it is so unnatural for us. I must confess that I usually avoid going to funerals because of the sadness it brings.I'll only go if there is a family member at rest. This lady in our community did not have any health challenges as my friend did...as far as I know. Death came as a surprise to all those involved. Death seems so final and mysterious.
But if you have faith in Christ as my friend did there is hope eternally. Christ said let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God also believe in me. In my fathers 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 ye will be also. So Death is not the end in Christ. Although both these families and the friends of there families are saddened. I know there is comfort in knowing death does not have the last say, So I will be faithful with whatever God gives me to do and that includes reaching my weight goal. I want to hear him say well done thou good and faith servant.
