A Celebration!

It was a hard day - so hard for us to loose the fellowship of such a precious young man...isn't that selfish? When I think of Todd now, I see that infectious grin, I see him exploring heaven with great delight,  and I see him in the presence of our Father and the saints who have gone on before.  He is whole, pain free and happy!  Our Father is so much wiser than we...

We had a wonderful celebration of Todd's life!  Todd was very involved with high school bands.  He worked each summer at band camp sharing his knowledge and sharing his Lord. This last Friday night the drum line at a local high school dedicated the half time show to Todd.  They also carried this banner...

This amazing group of kids played a drum cadence, at his funeral and at the gravesite, that Todd had written and taught to them.  He touched so many young lives.

Todd wanted a banquet that reflected the banquet in heaven.  He wanted people fellowshipping and telling tales about him....he wanted laughter and good memories...and that's exactly what happened!

Todd knew he was going to enter the presence of the Lord!  He had no doubts or fears.  He was going to be welcomed into the arms of his Savior whom he had served so faithfully.

I am so thankful for the knowledge given to us in the Word that we can know...for sure....that we are promised an eternal life in the Kingdom if we have walked with Him here on earth.

It is an amazing concept that we are spiritual beings having an earthly experience...for a very short time.  We are encased in this mortal body but one day will be set free from its confines to experience an eternal life.  The choices we make in this life will determine where we spend that eternity.

I pray that I get to see each of you in eternity...that we will worship our Father together one day.
