A wonderful wife for my son!💗

A beautiful wedding!!! All my sons standing side by side. So blessed! 

Dancing with my dear Rendon!  A touching, blessed moment for me!   He's such a sweetheart!

So many of our dear family and friends to celebrate with us!!   Such a great night!

Gil went to the car to get my high tops for me, so I could be more comfortable for dancing all night💃🏻.  He's such a gentleman!🤗

 

Have you ever been on a trip or had an event that was so fabulous you didn't want it to end?   The feelings and enjoyment you got from being with people you love or doing something so exciting made you wish you could stay in those moments?  Or that lightness you feel when you forget all about your cares and really live in a fantastic moment?

Me too!    This weekend was one of those for me!

As we were driving back down the mountain, I was reminiscing about how much I enjoyed the weekend: leaving behind my normal life responsibilities and worries and being with my family and friends, as we celebrated my son and new daughter's wedding,   What a great feeling that was!  

I was thinking that as great as that experiences was, it does not even compare with Heaven!!   Experiences like this are tiny glimpses of what Heaven with Jesus is going to be like!! AND,...it won't ever end!!

Isaiah 63:5 "...as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you." 

Wow!   God rejoices over us!!    As beautiful as the wedding and their passion for each other was, again, it doesn't compare to God's great love for us!!    

We certainly have something to look forward to!

 Revelation 21:3-7. "And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children."

 

Have you accepted God's gift to you?  It cost Him His life, but it's His free gift to you who receive it!
