And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
The above passage from my daily Bible reading assures me that where Connor is now; he is in a place that is free from all the sufferings of this world. He has fought the good fight, he has finished the race … he has kept the faith.
Connor’s life was lived well. Even though there were a lot of times when people hurt him … he never once sought revenge but always chose to forgive. His life was a demonstration of forgiveness and care for others. He was a good disciple of Christ … I nodded in agreement at Alvin’s words last night during the wake; Connor was not made for this earth and he is now finally home where he belongs; in Heaven.
I will spend the next few days reflecting on Connor. There so much to tell about him … about his life and how he lived it; about the testimony that he was to everyone around him.
