“I am making all things new”

The home-school meeting happened without me. My sister called as we were readying to leave the house and told me that Mom had a heart attack.

Early in the morning, Mom sent Lisa a sentimental poem that she found while rummaging through Granny’s things. A few days ago, Mom had laughed about keeping all of Granny’s stuff; she told me that if Granny had not used it in the past two years, she probably never would.

I talked with Mom about midmorning yesterday, she told he that she found my latest post to be encouraging. When I talked with her, she was reading the last few chapters of Revelation. She took her encouragement, not from my feeble words, but rather from the truthful promises of Scripture.

Later, after Lisa had posted the poem that Mom had sent her, I tried to call Mom to let her know. There was no answer. Dad said that Mom went suddenly; though paramedics resuscitated her body, I believe that Mom was already at home in a greater country.

When Mom’s heart gave out, she was not only prepared to meet her Savior, she was earnestly meditating on Jesus’ words with a sentimental homesickness that his faithful share.

And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”

Then He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost.

“He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.”

Revelation 21:5-7 (NIV)
