Going Home
We received the news earlier this week. She had bone cancer. She is being called home to be with her dear Precious Savior.
Can you imagine what life would be like if we didn’t have a place we can call home after death?
We think of the family members who are already there waiting patiently for us to return to our Father and our eternal home.
WE MAY FEAR DYING, BUT WE DO NOT FEAR DEATH ITSELF. IF WE TRULY BELIEVE!
We are the fortunate few, for so many in the world who do not have this tremendous reassurance of an eternal home,and for them, they are left agonizing of where will they be upon death?
Heaven for those that are “good” and Hell for those that are “bad”?
Genuinely, no one is perfect and if they only knew why Christ had to be crucified that “good and bad” doesn’t provide the key to heaven.
As Christ calls us home to be with him once again, we may walk a long and agonizing path to get there. Nevertheless be guaranteed that with every step you take towards home, Christ will be steadfast, holding your hand to guide you there.
Reaching the gates of heaven, you run straight through and into the heartening embrace from your Heavenly Father and there behind Him are family and friends waiting to put their arms around you too. Welcome Home!
The love and joy you encounter in eternity, now diminishes all the memories of pain you may have faced and encountered on your pathway back home. Like my aunt said once she got the news of her terminal illness: “Praise the Lord I am going home soon.”

Dedicated to my Aunt Dorothy whose remarkable courage and strength is an inspiration to me and my entire family—Praise the Lord for her tremendous testimony in Christ.

Then Heaven is where our family’s home is and will always be for eternity.

"This world is not my home, I'm just a-passin' through. My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue. The angels beckon me from heaven's open door, and I can't feel at home in this world anymore."

Remember that old song?

Your piece instantly reminded me of it.

Space between the paragraphs would have helped in the reading, but it is nonetheless a great reminder of an eternal truth and a lovely tribute.
