One thing I believe the Lord longs for us to do is commune with him in prayer. In today’s society, the altar is becoming less used and less popular, and some churches have removed it completely. I remember giving my life to Christ at an altar such as this one, and I have seen many tears shed as people poured out their hearts to Him in close communion. At a recent service, my brother and I discussed that this is a sight seldom seen anymore. May we as Christians get back to a time of closeness with our Savior. I long for the days of when we leave our worries, fears, failures and problems on the altar such as this precious soul did!
Alistair Begg once said, “Death for the Christian is to fall asleep in the arms of Jesus and waking up and finding out that you’re home.” There is nothing more that can be said about our precious sister, Miriam, who lived her life in service to our Savior. Miriam and Fred served our Lord for 30 plus years traveling and singing with the family, and now she has gone on to receive her rewards. Our family will never again be the same until we once again join in that Heavenly reunion! My, what a day that will be! I am reminded, however, that goodbyes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end, they simply mean I miss you, until we meet again… Until then, our dear Sister, enjoy the beauties of Heaven!
