I love you
I will always love you
Endless love
That never fails

Every morning
I remember
And give thanks
For life you gave me
No need to wonder
More sure than can be

Why hesitation
Burdens lay down
Time to walk
Towards great divide
Yet love fills my heart
A hope ne’er denied

Heav’n my destiny
There waits true love
Longing to be there
Though race to finish
Great hope I must share

I love you
I will always love you
Endless love
That never fails

2 Corinthians 5:1-10
‘For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. For we live by believing and not by seeing. Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord. So whether we are here in this body or away from this body, our goal is to please him. For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.’ (NLT)

What a beautiful post :-) Me and the SOH were talking about our heavenly bodies only the other day - there's stuff going on around us that has been making us think on how mortal, and fragile we are. In relation to your comment the other day - I know what his attitude is towards everything that's going on with me - left up to him, I would leave, quit, tomorrow, no notice, nothing. But he said something to me last night so wonderful that I remembered what you said and I realised how precious our literal "other half" can be in helping us understand ourselves - and God.

God bless
