Sad today at the news of the death of a dear friend, though rejoicing at the end of her long years of patient suffering, certain of her place in paradise, and looking forward to her resurrection into a glorious, immortal body which will know no pain. For me, Bev embodied the truth of these verses from Romans:
‘Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this glorious grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.’ Romans 5:2-5
When I grow up, I want to be like Bev.
