Memories of Tomorrow

Dear Kindred Spirits in Christ,

Tonight, my thoughts are traveling from the past to the future. I'm stopping long enough in these present moments to share some of my feelings with you, as they move back and forth and all around, jumping from my head to my heart before landing on this page.

We know that as believers, each of us has the promise of eternal life. Yet our fleshly lives are very temporary, more so for some than others. It is written in Psalm 144:4 that man is like a breath, his days are like a passing shadow. We are born, we grow and learn, creating, loving and experiencing every emotion from happiness to sorrow - and for many of us, we discover at some point that it's faith in something more than what we have here that keeps us going.

We are to enjoy our many blessings as we love Father God and others to fulfill the greatest commandment, yet we are not to love the world and its ways. Colossians 3:2 tells us to set our affection and thoughts on things above, not on the things of the earth.

I know that some are afraid to die while others are excited at the very thought of leaving this troubled flesh life and arriving in Paradise. Personally, I want to know that I've completed my mission in this life first, and then I can return to my heavenly home with open arms.

I feel I have more to do, but it's all in the hands of God. I'm trusting Him for what time is left and grateful for every good memory and experience that comforts me while I'm here. But it's the future that captivates me with awesome promises from our LORD. 1 Corinthians 2:9 states: Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. I'm waiting for those moments - for those 'memories of tomorrow' that will someday be mine, that I will someday look back upon, knowing it's all never ending, an eternity that I will share with loved ones gone on, and with each of you...

Love Always,
