Heaven's Choir

Fixing our eyes....

Heaven gained the most incredible angel this week.  
My selfish heart is breaking, knowing that my friend's sweet smile and graceful spirit will no longer walk here on Earth with us. That her dear husband and precious children have to walk the halls of their home without her. 
But because of her great faith and God's great love, she is running into the arms of our Savior today.  
She is singing with Heaven's choir, this palm Sunday. 

The end of my dear friend's earthly life has come, but her life of eternity has just begun! And I am praising God through this darkness, and through this present storm.  

Hug your loved ones a little bit tighter and longer today - I sure am. I have been reminded this week of how short this life is, and how we only have this one life to live.  
What kind of mark do I want to make - what kind of legacy do I want to leave?  

I hope that I can shine just a little brighter each and every day, and that I will do great things while I have the chance to.  
And that in all I do, I give glory to our King!  

"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:18

Oh I am so sorry for your loss Emily. I do believe some people's time on earth is meant to be shorter than others. It sounds like she impacted a lot of people in her short time here and I know you have found comfort in knowing that she is in heaven. Thinking of you and sending lots of love and prayers your way.
