You alone are the Lord. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

On My Way to Heaven

Another inspirational video.

The older I get and the more of my friends and relatives have died, I'm thinking more about heaven than I did when I was younger. I'm sure this is the case with many people. My hubby is a retired pastor. He doesn't preach anymore but he still does memorial services. So many former members of our congregation had requested years ago that they want Clif to do their memorial service. This Saturday morning will be one of those times. It will be for the wonderful Christian man who played the piano at our last church  He didn't just "play" the piano, he was a great piano player and was also a great singer and an elder at the church. We had the service for his wife almost exactly a year ago. They were both a few years younger than I am. Life is short. When you're young you think you will never get old, and then before you know it, it happens. You're old. I'm so thankful that we have this blessed hope of heaven because of the finished work of Jesus on the cross. The above video is a great reminder of that fact.

OK, now it's time to begin linking. Thank you for your participation.

  3. Oh how true on the before you know it, you're old. Seems from turning 50 to in the 70's is such a short trip. Enjoyed the video sharing. Hoping to see the movie eventually. I've been blessed in many ways, some I didn't even realize until late in life that He is always there.
