Since hearing of the death of Amy I have been thinking a lot about heaven and the reality of it’s exsistance.  Although we can’t see heaven, we know it exsists.  We know that those who trust in Lord are living in heaven.  They are communing with Jesus Christ!  They are living in a full, amazing and dynamic way; a way that we cannot even fathom!  And so I want to share Revelation 21:1-5,  it is such a refreshing verse, a  hopeful verse that gives us a glimpse of what heaven will be like.  And to think that Amy is there now!  She is no longer in pain, no longer suffering…she is whole and completely envoloped by the love of Jesus and his tangible presence!

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no long any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

Thanks for reading.
