Although Easter is over, my joy over Christ’s resurrection certainly remains. I find the appeal of heaven grows as I grow and oh how grateful I am for the sacrifice Jesus made on my behalf!! A brutal sacrifice that gives me heaven!!! I had a quick email exchange with Daisy’s mom this week and she painted a sweet picture of heaven that I found particularly meaningful as I reflected on Christ’s sacrifice and the hope of heaven…in her message she wrote,
“Please know how much Daisy loved seeing Rudy say hi to her (in reference to a video Rudy sent Daisy), and that she cares very much for him. One day we will all picnic and laugh while Daisy and Rudy play tag and joust on huge horses and dive off cliffs into clear waters.”
What a sweet thing to say…what a beautiful image…what a comfort…what joy there is to be experienced in heaven!!! And what a gift it is that we can experience “heaven on earth”…even though our spring break was plagued by illnesses (Rudy was down with his stomach virus for 6 days and Maxi ended up getting it on Sunday) that kept us quarantined at home, it had some special “heaven on earth” moments too.
Thank you for praying for Rudy! He’s definitely on the mend (as is Max) and we’re slowing introducing feeds again.
Wishing you joy, dear friends!
