Yesterday I learned that my sweet friend is on hospice. My heart is breaking knowing what her loved ones are going through. My heart is breaking knowing what her passing will mean to me . . . yup, completely selfish on my part.
One thing I do know about this sweet friend is that she loves Jesus with all her heart. Her love of Him fills her heart so much that it has literally spilled out into countless lives. All you have to do is read her Facebook page to see just the tip of the ice burg of who she’s touched and the lives she’s impacted.
I know because she loves Jesus she is looking forward to seeing Him soon. I know she’s probably filled with sadness as we all visit her to say good-bye. I hate this part of life. I hate this part of the cancer support group she and I have led. The parting brings sweet sorrow to my heart. On one hand it brings great sadness. On the other I know it’ll only be time before we one day join her in eternity. I know her suffering here on earth will be over as she enters into eternity free of the burden of cancer. For that I am filled with joy for her.
I chose this song because it is a beautiful representation of how we, as Christians, feel about heaven and what we can imagine it to be. My friend will soon be seeing it as it really is.
Thank you MercyMe for this beautiful song.
