Home: Ed's Loving Welcome

Danny's Dad has made the journey, and now he is fully at home, fully alive in Heaven. Oh the mixture of sorrow, joy that makes no sense in the natural. Peace and grace for those now who are without sleep tonight, and wondering how God will deliver them, but knowing He will. My wise husband sensing God's timing was near exceeded the thoughts of the experienced, but really and truly, only God knew.

After I rose from my earlier post of worship (for me and the Lord), I knew this was the time. It was if He said, "It is finished." And it is...oh, to hear the sound in Heaven, to see as he now sees; fully, fully alive.

Jesus, we love you. Our Daddy, Ed, is and always has been more yours than ours. Thank you for his grace-filled life. Thank you for Heaven. Thank you for Salvation. Thank you for over ruling what made no sense to the wise of the day....you came anyway, and gave everything. Thank you all over again.

Weeping with you as I read this, but as you say the weeping mixed with joy of his arrival. The weeping is for those who are left here in these earth suits!!!

I think the Lord gave me phrase, "fully alive," because he is now. Fully home, fully alive. He never wanted to leave the county even, so this trip was a whopper!

"Fully alive" - I LOVE that. How you, and how GOD! Praying for peace that surpasses all understanding.

Isn't it wonderful knowing that he is with the Lord, no pain, no sufferning, all questions answered!
We'll be praying for you and your family as you go thru your grieving process.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Even though we know our loved ones are so much happier (if they have a saving faith, which you're rejoicing about) our loss here on Earth is real and cannot be denied.

My prayers are with you and your family.

My agreement and thanks to all the comments left. The joy of knowing Ed's home with the Lord, fully alive as the Lord spoke to me, yet our sorrow here, just as real. All of this draws me to the Lord. He is such a comforting God.

What a comforting post you have written. There is an empty place left here that is filled with love and memories and the reality that one day soon, we will all be complete with our love ones that are home. We look forward with anticipation to that reunion.

As the family left here makes adjustments of the life that has gone on, the family members that have gone on are helping to make the adjustments for the lives that are coming to heaven. What a day that will be!!
