BE ENCOURAGED

A word from a dear old man of God…

In Numbers 20:24 we have one of the lovely pictures that the Bible uses when it speaks of the death of believers. Unlike the New Testament, in which we read that believers ‘fall asleep’, or are ‘taken to Abraham’s side’, here, as elsewhere in the Old Testament, Aaron is ‘gathered to his people’. [The same is said of Abraham, aged 175 years, in Genesis 25:8.]  What a beautiful picture! The Christian’s ultimate family is the people of God.  These people are our brothers and sisters, some of whom are found on earth, others already in glory. The longer we live, the more we will find that we know more of the family in heaven than here! Death will not separate us from our family, but gather us to them. We will be with Christ and with them!  Be encouraged.

TIME OUT…

Please forgive me friends.  Grief has hit me harder than I thought, and my muse has left for parts unknown.  When I pick up my pen or my brush all I find is mud… So I am taking a break for a while until I am through this.  Love

Just want to say that I have been overwhelmed by your support.  You are a wonderful community and I thank you for your love and prayers ❤
