.I've been reading Billy Graham's fine little book, "Heading Home." A classic for old folks. A lovely and loving challenge for all folks.
About growing old. About passing the torch. About being an example. About drawing close to the Heavenly Father, and preparing for the final journey. Or, as Billy says, "The last mile."
When will it come? What will it be like? Will we recognize it when we're there?
His book is full of helpful suggestions, and wonderful scripture to assure us, and give us confidence. It is about Heaven, and the home that awaits us on the distant shore. It's a hopeful book, though for Christians, full of reminders of what we already believe.
We all hope for heaven. But, it was promised to those who receive Jesus and have given their lives to Him. It is straight forward, no kidding around.
Heaven is no myth Dr. Graham insists. And the Bible is full of affirmations about its reality, and about our going there - to be forever with Jesus, His Heavenly Father, and the Holy Spirit.
"I will come and take you there, so you can be with Me where I am," He promised.
It's been encouraging to me. Jesus is the key. He'll be there and we'll be with Him. What a promise!
Bless you as we all walk the journey on, or toward the last mile.
