Pastor's Ponderings: September 16, 2013

Family reunions are always a great time to renew family ties, celebrate our relatives, eat great food, and have an all around good time. They are wonderful occasions to remind ourselves about our connections to our ancestors and to our descendants. Our family has enjoyed our reunions for over sixty years at Thanksgiving.

The only sad part is our all too soon parting. But one day we are going to have a family reunion with our Savior. This time there will be no goodbyes. We will be in the presence of the Lord where there is not just a good time but "the fulness of joy". Many of us are having troubles, sickness, and pain. However, we can look forward happily and expectantly to our mansion that He has prepared for us. We should remind and encourage each other about that great reunion in the sky.

Happy family reunion with our Savior!

John 14:2, 3
King James Version (KJV)

In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Psalms 16:11
King James Version (KJV)

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
