Sorrow and Joy

Their faces showed immeasurable sorrow as they stood mourning the death of son* and brother.

Yet the words they chose to honor Nate’s life speak of coming joy: You have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you (John 16:22).

It seems to me that while he lived, he prayed.

The Glory of God in the face of Christ

In my dream my husband woke me up and said, “I see God! Wake up! Wake up! Do you see him?” I looked and saw the face of Christ surrounded by God’s glory. I wanted the dream to last forever.

This Lord Jesus Christ who radiates glory, beauty and love, listens to our prayers.

God has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6).
