I Can Only Imagine

It's been one of those weeks.  It's only Wednesday, and three people (none of whom could be considered elderly) I know have passed away.  All three of them dealt with serious illnesses, and while they have gone on to be with the King, my heart and spirit still hurt.

I live an hour or so (depending on traffic) from my school.  I stumbled upon a local radio show (102.9 FM if you live in south central Kentucky) and at 6:00 a.m. every morning they play "God Bless America", followed by a scripture reading and daily devotional thought, and a gospel or inspirational song to close.  It's becoming a favorite part of my commute.

This morning they played the Amy Grant version of Mercy Me's "I Can Only Imagine".  As I only knew of only one death, it gave me comfort.  This afternoon, when I became aware of the other two, that song seemed to be on repeat in my heart.  It's continuing to provide some solace.

Once home today, I also re-read one of my favorite Scriptures, Revelations 21:1-4.  This morning the radio was talking about how Jesus has truly gone on to prepare a place for us.  On days like today, that thought gives me comfort.
