Suddenly...and without pause...there was a mighty roar and a big thunderous clap of applause in Heaven, as Wayne walked through...or maybe even ran through...those big pearly gates! I can just see all the saints lining those streets of gold...clapping and shouting...as Wayne's celebration begin! Do you think JESUS was standing right there, waiting for Wayne? I do. I believe that JESUS held HIS arms out...opened wide...and Wayne ran right into them! Ohhh...what a mighty hug that must have been! Think about it. Wayne got to meet JESUS face to face! What a time he must be having...walking hand in hand with Jesus around Heaven!
For family and friends, still here on this earth, we can only imagine what it was like...but I know it must have been indescribable! Though we feel great sorrow that Wayne is no longer here with us...and we will miss him terribly...we are so very happy that he is not sick or in pain any longer.
I want to thank everyone of you...from all around the world...that prayed for Wayne during this time. I know that GOD heard all of our prayers and answered in the way that HE knew was best. Please continue to pray for Marge and the rest of the family during this time of loss.
An old hymn keeps coming to mind and it is so true...
What A Day That Will Be written by Jim Hill
What a day that will be,
When my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand,
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be
There'll be no sorrow there,
No more burdens to bear,
No more sickness, no pain,
No more parting over there;
And forever I will be,
With the One who died for me,
What a day, glorious day that will be.
2 Corinthians 5:1
New Living Translation (NLT)
For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.
