If I ascend to heaven, you are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there. (Psalms 139:8
"When Jack got on the airplane to leave for Saudi Arabia," his mother recalled, "he gave Lisa, his fiancee, a bride's book, so they could be planning the wedding." Perhaps the most moving moment of Shirley's witness came when she said, "I speak to you only from my heart, and out of my pain, because only God can give me the strength to stand here before you and say these words. But they're so important. Each of you has the decision to make that my son made. And this is the time when you have a choice, and we never know how long we'll have to make that decision."
Three weeks before John Morgan was killed in action, half a world from home, he wrote two letters to his family, "just in case." Shirley and her family gathered together and read the letters after they received the word that their son had been killed. John's words reassured his family. John ended his letter with these words, "in case you have to open this, please don't worry. I am all right...Now I know something you don't know--what heaven's like!"
Loving God, give me a touch of heaven today. In Jesus' name, Amen.
