I know this message is new but I'm surprised not to see any responses as yet...
In any case, it is a very powerful and moving speech by somebody that knows her time is coming to an end. In some ways it is similar to a speech I heard from Norman Wright (a family counselor and author out of Bakersfield, CA). When I heard him speak it was just two weeks after his wife had died from a similar malady. He spoke of hope, courage, recovering from loss...
At the time, I needed very much to hear these words because I was nearing my sentencing date. The loss was great and the pain even greater. We spoke, we prayed, and I thanked him for the support his words would offer my family and myself...
Death is not the end, it is a new beginning. A new beginning for family and for ourselves. In fact, it is the acceptance that our earthly bonds will soon be severed that may be the finest hour of any persons' existence. It is when possessions, money, power and the sins of all humanity are taken from your shoulders as you realize that all is left after that is all you need. The love of family, friends and of God. With all else we live with, don't we all just take God for granted? Don't we take love for granted?
When our time comes, and God will choose that time, we will know the awesome peace of God's love. The only requirement is that we have accepted Christ's sacrifice for our sins. Think about it...
A gift is required to receive yet another gift...
Can this be a God that doesn't love?
Is this not the ultimate manifestation of his love?
