Death…. It seems so scary and final right? Well only if you don’t have the hope that’s found in Jesus. I’ll be honest before Logan’s accident I thought you know heaven sounds so good and I’d like to go there someday when I’m old and lived a good life but I enjoy life right now and so I’m just not ready to even think about it… and even more so … death scared me. I always joked if I died young I’d just haunt my kids partly because it would be slightly funny (if you know me you understand my humor) but also so I could just watch over them and protect them. Then…. Logan went to heaven. God changed my heart and perspective on death so much in these moments. I’m not afraid to die. I think Logan showed me the beauty that’s on the other side of death. The complete joy that’s in heaven. Walking with our father, no sin, no broken world to live in, no judgements and I’m pretty sure you can eat all the donuts you’d want and calories don’t matter in heaven! Maybe I’m wrong on that too but still it sounds so good! (I also LOVE donuts) or maybe when I get to heaven I have killer abs and can bench 700 pounds that would be amazing. All jokes aside, I don’t fear death. Don’t get me wrong I don’t go searching for it, I don’t live recklessly but just as it says in 1 Corinthians 15:55 oh death where is your sting? My heart now is where it should have been all along but because of Logan I’m not afraid. Fear surrounds our lives in so many ways and this is just one more way and saying “not today satan” to the fears he wants me to believe. I have nothing to fear because I know I’ll see my sweet baby again and walk with Jesus in eternity and my family that I would leave be hind would be well taken care of. Not living in fear is so freeing. Living with the hope of Jesus and heaven and eternity is so beautiful. It is my hope that you can see not just the beauty of life in Jesus but the beauty in death especially when we’re still here in earth and the sting of a loved one who went before us hits our hearts. 🦋💜🐓
