This week, I lost a friend.

Post  christlovesu2 on Wed 27 Aug 2008, 7:27 pm

This week, I lost a friend. She left her house the morning of August 20th, headed to work, and never returned home. Sitting at her desk at college, she had a brain aneurism. A beautiful life over in seconds...her family and friends left stunned.

What's life all about? At times, so fragile and fleeting. I'm left with so many questions in the wake of this week.

Have you ever wondered what heaven is going to be like...or if there even is a heaven?

Christlovesu2, I am so sorry for your loss and your questions or thoughts prompted some thoughts of my own. I was praying for you when these thoughts entered in and this poem is the results:

Godís Dwelling Place

Sometimes when death happens; it catches us off guard

We are stirred with emotions; at times it hits faith hard



We ask questions like, is there a Heaven; does it really exist

And who will be there; how about the loved ones, Iíve missed



Heaven is Godís dwelling place; a place of continual praise

A place of great joy and satisfaction; where God is worshipped, always



A place of no crying or mourning; no pain, sickness or death

No hunger, thirst, violence or wars; only peace and rest



The righteous will be there and those redeemed through Christ

And all races and nationalities will commune in paradise



Heaven is our Fatherís House; where a multitude of angels trod

And where our Redeemer sits; at the right hand of our God



Yes my friend, there is a Heaven; for all of us to share

And if Jesus is our Savior; weíll see our loved ones there

I hope that you don't mind, but I posted it in the poetry section; again I am sorry for your loss, your friend in Christ, Irv.

It is sad that you lost your friend but God raised Jesus from the dead showing us that Heavens do exist and our obedience and love for God will surely make us resurrect just like Jesus one day and we will be with Him and serving Him only

Thanks everyone for your prayers. It really means a lot to me.

I've been thinking about this whole "heaven" thing a lot, and my friend sent me a link to this website called lifeafterlife.tv.

It's a movie where people who have had experiences where they went to "heaven" and then came back to life, share their stories. Their stories really have made it easier for me to deal with the loss of my friend.

I guess I have a new hope that this "heaven" really does exist.
