"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes and there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the former way of things has gone away." -Revelation 21:4
Death is never easy, it's never something we can fully prepare for, especially at a time when we think our youth exempts us from it. BUT Jesus... He has made this earthly pain bearable. He has made a way for Emily to spend eternity in paradise. He has assured me that one day I will see her again.
I think that if Emily had just one more day on earth she wouldn't spend it at the Pi Mansion with her best friends, on a date in Savannah with @nealhollis, or even at home with her precious family. I think she would spend it making sure that all of us, me and you, know that our salvation comes from Christ alone and that all He wants is for each of us to have a personal relationship with Him.
I would give anything to make more memories with my spunky friend, but I find my peace in knowing that this is not where the story ends. Thank you, Jesus.
