God Shall Wipe Away Every Tear...

In the land of fadeless day
Lies the city foursquare;
It shall never pass away,
And there is no night there.
God shall wipe away all tears,
There’s no death, no pain, nor fears,
And they count not time by years,
For there is no night there.
All the gates of pearl are made,
In the city foursquare;
All the streets with gold are laid,
And there is no night there.
All the gates shall never close
To the city foursquare;
There life’s crystal river flows,
And there is no night there.
There they need no sunshine bright,
In that city foursquare;
For the Lamb is all the light,
And there is no night there.

-John R. Clements

A friend of ours died in a drowning accident yesterday. My heart goes out so much to his family. It reminds me of how quickly life can be taken away and that we are not promised tomorrow. If you have never asked the Lord to live in your heart then today is the day.  The simplest thing could turn into tragedy and there could be no more tomorrows.
I am thankful to know that someday, whether it be by death or God coming to take us away, we will see our friend in heaven again.
