Things To Look Forward To

"How different the state of believers in heaven will be from what is here. Ah! Christian, the hot day of weariness doesn't last forever. The sun is nearing the horizon; it shall rise again with a brighter day than you have ever seen upon a land where they serve God day and night, and yet rest from their labors. Here, rest is only partial. There, it is perfect. Here, Christians are always unsettled; they feel that they have not attained. There, all are at rest. Happy day! When mortality shall be swallowed up by life and the eternal Sabbath shall begin" C H Spurgeon

Thank you for sharing these words from C.H. Spurgeon - he was a wise man.

Thinking of you, dear Maryann, and wishing you a lovely weekend!

Spurgeon is always so encouraging. He constantly turns our hearts to the eternal. What a blessed and sure hope we have in our precious Saviour! Cling to Him my friend...we soon will be taken Home!! With Love, Camille
