A moment of reflection.

Last night, one of my closest friend's father passed away. While our prayers and thoughts are certainly with him, I found my mind pondering the deeper implications of this sad event.

While you and I slept last night, an important man died. Maybe you were watching TV, or playing a game. Or working on your blog. While I write this, someone somewhere died. As you read this, someone is dying. Last night at 6:35 P.M. CST, a man named James Earl Wilson left his body, and stood before the Lord. This man walked the earth for 75 years, and last night, he got to speak with the Creator of all the universe. And, as we believe and know, he was welcomed into paradise. By now, I'm sure he has met Paul, Moses, Abraham, Daniel, David.....and best of all, Jesus. He has probably had a water-fight in the River of Life with Christ! He has been shown to his mansion, and has gotten to visit with the family members that passed before him. He got to look down at his son and wife, and wished he could show them what he now sees. How incredibly awesome is that? We mourn, and rightfully so. But James is happier than he has ever been! The Bible says that "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord". The body is a shell, housing the everlasting spirit that composes the real you. Joyfully, thankfully, the real James awaits his loved ones in heaven.

Be encouraged, Scotty. Be comforted. And be challenged.......
