In the flesh we are sad, and do not understand, but through faith in our Lord and Saviour, we can celebrate the joy and glory that Shirley has reached Heaven and is there waiting. For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 Corinthians 5:1
We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8
