The sobering reality of death
“It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment”.
Wow, the reality of this verse from the 9th chapter of Hebrews really hit me between the eyes this week! It was one of those weeks where you feel like you just got a major dose of reality. And even more than that maybe a better reminder and appreciation of the word “perspective”.
I was already in a very reflective mood as we approached the end of the year and with mixed emotions my thoughts were focused on my oldest daughter Kayla, who has now been in heaven with the Lord for 15 years. She left this life on December 11th. It is so hard to believe she would now be 25 years old. Wow, how the years have flown by. I cherish the many memories of one of the sweetest and most beautiful little girls I have ever known. I am also comforted by the reality of where she is and that I will see here again someday. There is something very special about the love a father has for his children.
