Death and Christmas

My dad died on December 12 of this year. His death was by no means a tragedy. He was 89 years old, had lived a full, meaningful life and died surrounded by people who loved him. It was, as deaths go, a good one. He knew Jesus as his personal Savior and must now be either sitting at his feet surrounded by the best version of easy listening or playing endless innings of heavenly baseball.

Stay with the flock and keep your eyes on the Shepherd. The flock will make mistakes or disappoint us in some way or another. But the Shepherd we can trust.
