One year in heaven

One year ago today.

These were my thoughts a year ago.

Here's where D&J are now.

Today, I ache for a year of life and memories missing. But at the same time, I see Glory. I trust in a God that brings beauty from ashes. And I choose hope.

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time
are not worth comparing with
the glory that is to be revealed to us.

For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.
For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together
in the pains of childbirth until now.

And not only the creation, but we ourselves,
who have the firstfruits of the Spirit,
groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons,
the redemption of our bodies.

For in this hope we were saved.

Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees?

But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
Rom 8:18-25
