A Far Better Place~

This week started out as any other week for me. I had things to do ~people to see ~ places to go. Only I did not get those things done~ I didn't keep my appointments I had made with people and I never went to the places I needed to go.  Monday night it appears my father went outside for a walk or maybe to get some fresh air ~ he suffered a heart attack and went to a far better place.

Nothing else mattered to me this week~ only my Dad! My Dad was no religious man nor was he a church man. But my mom remembers a time he asked God to forgive him of his sins and he received him as his Saviour. To me that is just the best information in the whole wide world. He never grew spiritually nor did he ever overcome his addictions but I have assurance I will see him again in a "Far Better Place." My Dad is whole this morning ~all the burdens of this old world have been lifted.

I have to admit my heart has been broken as it never before has~ I have gone to sleep with tears in my eyes to wake up crying~ but one day I will go to this "Far Better Place" and God will wipe away all my tears. What a glorious day that will be.

One day we who claim the name of Jesus will go to that place where there is "no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying." Not only will God wipe away all our tears but there will be no more pain~ no more addiction.

Revelation 21:4

King James Version (KJV)

 4And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

This life is not all there is. There is a Far Better Place that Jesus is preparing for those who love Him and place their trust in Him.

John 14:2-3

King James Version (KJV)

 2In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

In that Far Better Place~ 
when life has ended we will feel God's embrace;
We will forever live with no pain or sorrow
 in that Far Better Place. 

Today I will celebrate that my Dad is in that Far Better Place.
