This is a personal story, but, since so many of you suffered along with our family at the loss of Wes, I wanted to share this with you in hopes it will also give you peace as well. This past weekend our family gatherd at a beautuful lake house in North Carolina to be with Rhonda as she scattered Wesley’s ashes in two of his favorite places to hike and camp. Wes had discussed with Rhonda that, just in case, he didn’t survive his cancer that he wanted his ashes scatterd in a number of places so she, Elijah and Abigail might experience these places he loved so much. It was a time of healing, and family warmth as we continued to deal with our loss, but also the great memories of a beloved loved one. So many of you walked through this journey with us, and I wanted you to know your prayers are being answered.
It was a wonderful moment knowing Wes was coming home to two of his favorite and beautiful spots. What was even more joyful is to know these are simply the ashes of his body, that Wes is with his Heaveny Father in Paradise, and we will embrace again someday and never have to say goodbye again! Until then, Wes, we miss and love you and are glad your earthly pain is over, and that your eternal joy is just beginning!
John 14 New Living Translation (NLT)
Jesus, the Way to the Father
14 “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. 2 There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? 3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.”
The way is to accept Jesus as your Savior and to prepare to be with Him for all of eternity!
