I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, Saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. (Revelation 1:8 KJV)
Closure = Ending = Eternal
I laid my mother’s engraved tombstone rock into the cold shallow water on the riverside of the Delaware Water Gap; a spot where we – her children laid her to rest in faith as Jesus carried her home.
Memories will live on, tears will still fall, and picking up the phone to call her will still be in my mind. However, the gracious gift of this engraved rock from my distance family touched my heart in my Mother’s memory, as she is in glorious Heaven forever.
Even though our lives on earth come to an end, Gods wondrous Heaven reins for eternity. An almighty power only he can control and provide our everlasting home. Sudden stops may close a phase of your life, but remember Gods love is eternal. His love endures our daily steps to reach our one true final, everlasting home.
Lord, hold me close in your arms that I may never feel closure from you, but knowing that my closure is everlasting. Amen.
