    1. Isn’t that so exciting to look forward to! That’s our home and it’s going to be better than our best day here on Earth. Hard to wrap my head around it. Thank you Wendy for your incredible friendship, love and support all these years. I’m so grateful for you!


  1. Oh Meghan, thank you. I am so grateful for you too!! God has blessed me again and again by your friendship, and now by your blogs. So thankful.
    And, yes, I look forward to our future home in heaven. Praise God. I think He actually thinks about us, & our individual preferences as He prepares our place there. Very exciting.

  2. I read this earlier but am just now getting the opportunity to respond. I’m so sorry for your loss and this anniversary. I wish things could be like you said–that we could all leave this earth together. I’ve been praying for you throughout the day. I’m so glad that this life is temporary and that you’ll see your mom again because she trusted in Jesus. Hope is so sweet!

      1. You are very welcome;, and thank you too. My mother died two days after my birthday, twenty-one years ago; that memory never goes away. I will see her again; I know for sure.
