Heaven is a Wonderful Place

A very beloved man in our church went to Heaven today. He had been experiencing chest pains the past few weeks and had successfully had stints inserted into his arteries earlier this week. This good man spent the last couple of days at home enjoying time with his wife yet unexpectedly entered Heaven early this morning.

My husband and I were so encouraged by the strength of  a wife who has only hours ago lost her husband and a daughter who has lost her dad.  Although both shed tears of grief for their loss, they know he is in Heaven enjoying his new body and meeting his Saviour.

“And 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.” (Revelation 21:4 KJV)

"When the time comes for you to die, you need not be afraid, because death cannot separate you from God's love."-Charles Spurgeon


We are so blessed with the most wonderful promise of Heaven at the end of this life.  I love being a Christian and knowing that one day I will be joining my loved ones in Heaven for eternity.

Heaven is a wonderful place,
Filled with Glory and Grace,
I want to see my Savior’s face;
Heaven is a wonderful place.
