Significant Encounter Friday #9

Significant Encounters of the Closest Kind – The Last of the Sisters

 It’s been a sad/happy week.

The last of the sisters was laid to rest.

 Born in 1927, 1930 and 1937.

The eldest, my Aunt, had her second most significant encounter this week.

The middle, my Aunt, had hers in 2007.

The youngest, my Mom, had hers in 2001.

Second significant encounter you ask?

What was the first?

The moment when they trusted their lives to Christ.

The second , the day they got to enter into His presence forever.

unhindered by sick bodies and the cares of this world.

Entering into the joy of their Lord.

We will miss you.

Daughters, Sisters, Wives, Mothers, Aunts, Grandmothers,

Great Grandmothers.

Isaiah 57:2 (NIV)   Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death.

 Philippians 1:21 (NIV)   For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

Colossians 3:3  (NIV)  For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
