Yes, you heard me right. Today Ernie and I attended a beautiful funeral. We celebrated the death and arrival in Heaven of a dear, dear woman who was over 99 years old! She was a faithful member of my hometown church for 74 years. Her beloved husband had gone home to Jesus about 6 years ago, and this sweet lady wanted nothing more than to join her husband of 68 years in Heaven with Jesus. She fell asleep early Wednesday morning, and is now happily reunited with her husband and is praising her Savior and dwelling in the mansion He has prepared for her.
And it truly was a happy day, a wonderful celebration. We visited with her four daughters and their families. There were few tears. Everyone was joyful, rejoicing that her journey on earth was complete and she was finally at home. This woman was a beautiful example of a Christian wife, mother, and member of the church. Yes, Agnes will be missed, but not for one minute would anyone wish her back on this earth.
Blessed are those who die in the Lord...Yes, says the Spirit, they are blessed indeed. Rev. 14:13
