If I could talk with you right now I would tell you that I love you, I’d ask that you not cry for me or be sad that we're apart; I would embrace you with a good long hug and warm you with a smile, I’d take your tears and all your fears and give you all my joy;
I would tell you that God is great in all his magnificent glory, - that I live in light and dwell in love and am home in heaven’s story.
And before I was through with my moments spent with you, I would take your hands in mine and tell you a little something so wonderful about time;
I'd say that we will join paths again in sunshine and in joy, because though life on earth goes fast, the bonds of love forever last.
Beloved, we are God's children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is.
In this personal reflection by Janet Sullivan Bradford, the author imagines what a loved one, who has passed away, would say to comfort the living. Appropriate for anyone who has endured a loss. Text arranged as a staircase leading up to heaven. In the background is a photo of the sun shining through clouds.
