my Lord and Savior
I thought of His suffering before His death.
There is much about this world that can bring
happiness and blessings.
There are many things that our physical bodies
wish not to depart from in this world.
Whether it be the beauty created by our God
or the love connections
that are so important to us.

A way to make the release easier from this physical world?
Perhaps in the suffering is the blessing
in knowing we are going to
a far happier place in our eternity.
