Heartfelt thought, prayers and love... from the Gosda family.
For as Paul's passing was heartbreaking, too soon, as with the loss of both of my parents... to the very same, our family focused on the blessing, of having, knowing, enjoying and loving those we held so dear. And the confidence and hope afforded us with Paul's faith, our faith, in His risen Son.
And with reflections from Revelation 21, The New Jerusalem, we are reminded:
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth... the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.
