Final Destination

We received a sad phone call last night. Our dear friend Winston went home to be with his God. It is sad for his family, who loved and cherished him, and his friends. But what a victory! He was faithful in his Christian walk and he knew where he was going. We have great comfort in that knowledge. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." Psalm 116:14
I can only imagine his homecoming. When our eldest son returned from Iraq his first time, we were there to meet his bus as they came home. What joy to see his feet touch American soil!

God Walks Among Us

“I will walk among you and be your God, and you shall be My people.Iamthe LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, thatyoushould not be their slaves;
I have broken the bands of your yoke and made you walk upright.”Lev. 26:12-13This passage brought to mind a book I read years ago in which the writer urged us to live in constant communion with God.This writer helped me see my relationship with God in a new light.It is not to be relegated to set times, but practiced in a daily walk; one that needs my absolute attention moment by moment.It is a joyful, thankful journey alongside Him. It was a turning point in my already strong commitment to live a life dedicated to my God and Savior.If we have obeyed His word, God frees us, not from the land of Egypt, but from slavery to sin.Live in joyful gratitude for the wonderful gift and the promise of eternal life.He walks alongside us each step of the way to our eternal home.
