I was e-mailing with Karen yesterday and we were "talking" about how great our hope is with God. So even though they are sad, at the same time they have joy and hope based on the fact that they know they will be reunited with Joey someday. She reminded me of this verse in Romans 8:18:
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.Now that verse made me think of heaven. Joey beats us to seeing it, and we can just imagine how he's having a blast right now. For all of us who are still here on earth, we can have hope and eagerly await for that day as we carry on our mission and whatever God purposed for us to do while we're here. And since I'm thinking of heaven, I thought I'd share this wonderful video I found. Enjoy!
