It's always hard to lose someone you love. It's especially hard when it's a child. Amy was only two years old. She went to sleep with a little cold and a little fever, but by the end of the night, Amy was gone from a cause that is still a medical mystery. Her parents were in deep grief, but they also felt a little comfort from something beautiful that happened right before Amy went to sleep that night. Her mother began singing "Jesus Loves Me" to her, and little Amy sang along with her. Her last words were, "Jesus loves me, this I know." Then she was with Him.
Who is really going to heaven? Most people think it will be based on whether our good deeds outweighed our bad deeds, and that we won't know until we get God's verdict when we die.
There was a "Family Circus" cartoon in the newspaper where the Dad and the little boy were in a cemetery looking at Grandpa's gravestone. Pointing to the epitaph on the tombstone, Dad says, "Those two dates are the year Granddad was born and the year he died." Then, pointing to the mark between his grandfather's date of birth and date of death, the little guy said, "That means that little dash between the years is Granddad's lifetime!"
Do you know where you are going after you take your last breath? Have you ever thought about that? It sure does help to know where you are going.
Joe was trying to return his rental car, and he managed to find the ramp that pointed to "rental car returns." The sign he came to didn’t list the company he rented the car from, but at that moment, the van from his rental company went by. Joe took off behind him. It's a good thing he did because the roads and ramps took him on a chase all around the airport and beyond the airport. He would have never figured out how to get there because he didn’t know where he was going!
