Another Saint Triumphant

M and I are headed off to celebrate my grandma's life here on earth and now her new life in heaven. I find my true comfort in knowing that she is now a saint in the presence of the Lord. What sweeter comfort could be found than the joyful knowledge that I too will one day be such a saint in the presence of our Lord.

"I know that my Redeemer lives,

and that in the end he will stand upon the earth.

And after my skin has been destroyed,

yet in my flesh, I will see God;

I myself will see him

with my own eyes--I and not another.

How my heart yearns within me!"

Job 19:25-27
