Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Have you actually sat down and thought about eternity? About the after-life? Your eternal residency?
I actually thought about eternity and my hope to spend forever with the Lover of my soul, God. I actually thought about it and this hope made death here on the earth, seem light and trivial. I began to think about the idea that my eyes will continuously see the beauty that awaits me in Heaven. Every day, moment, year in and out- I will be surrounded by light, beauty and love- because of my relationship with Jesus Christ.
When you think about eternity, and you think about your own relationship with Christ; things here on the earth seem trivial and full of vanity – waiting to pass away. But the opposite is also true, eternity for those who do not have a relationship with Christ is full of torment and fear.
We cannot escape eternity, wherever we end up because of our choices- we are there forever.
I think that if each of us took a moment to think about the weight of the word eternity, we would love people better; we would be honest and keep our word; we would live our lives sold out for Christ. Our reward for our work is a lifetime of being with Him, and I look forward to every second of it.
If you have any questions or concerns, please comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until next time,
“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”” John 11:25-26

Hello. I read your post this morning, and would like to say Amen. Its refreshing to hear someone think about life from the perspective of eternity first. And although I am guilty of forgetting to think about life and love first at times, this post brings me right where I need to be. And that is putting Love first with the perspective of eternity in mind……. ♡
