For My Special Blingee Friends...You Know Who You Are!
A SPECIAL Blingee friend asked me if I really believed I would see my loved ones, that have died, again. This was my reply:
I TOTALLY believe God's promises. He tells us we SHALL meet and co-exist for ETERNITY with those we love, and have loved. John 3:16 tells us ALL WE NEED TO KNOW to live with Him AND our loved ones, including our PETS. It simply says: For God so loved the world, that He gave His ONLY SON, so that those who BELIEVE IN HIM shall NOT perish, but have EVERLASTING life. I've seen too many MIRACLES (yes, miracles), NOT to believe. We just have to BELIEVE. simple. See, I feel, that if we DO believe in Him, we'll want to live life the 'right' way. The 10 commandments are (to me) a guideline. Yes, a VERY good set of guidelines. However, NO ONE'S PERFECT. God knows that. We ALL sin.... A LOT. He knows THAT, too. He doesn't expect perfection. If He had wanted robots without free will, He would have MADE them. We, as humans, have a very difficult time even TRYING to understand. So, to keep it simple, I try to be the kindest, and best person I can, BUT, I falter ALL THE TIME. That's what's so good about forgiveness. God forgives, but He also FORGETS. How awesome is THAT?! I have faith because that's what John 3:16 tells me to do. I KNOW He's there. I will NEVER falter on THAT, NEVER! The Human eyeball has 1,200 different parts. THAT, my friend, did NOT happen by accident! We all may have different views, different religions, different skin color, different sexual orientation, and different morals & values, BUT that doesn't make ME love ANYONE any less. I do not judge. I accept people for who they are. PERIOD. Why? Because that's what Jesus did, (and still does), AND, that's what the Bible tells me to do. I love you, my friends. Always. NO MATTER WHAT.
