ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE REALITIES
Welcoming your arrival vibrantly were your exuberant parents, like angels reveling for your grand entrance to this haven of goodness prepared by God through your family. Being the first born and the only girl, you were the princess who delighted your relatives, and the adorable sister to your brothers. With them, you beheld the Lord’s wondrous blessings, as by faith, you trusted Him- His might, mercy, and miracles. Amidst outside turbulence and tribulations, you witnessed the Creator’s graciousness’ generosity and greatness’ glory as you grew and glowed in your home’s security. Nevertheless, your early departure to be with the breath-Source seemed to cause obscurity, dimness and gloom to your abode. Yet this was just momentarily. Though there was weeping, your loved ones knew in their hearts that you are in the best place since you are with the Saviour, walking now on streets of gold in your mansion…waiting for them in the grand eternal heavenly reunion.
birth grants earthly breath
offers God’s eternal life ---*
to win over death
*Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
