It scares me.
Am I afraid to die?
I'm afraid of what I would leave behind.
I'm afraid of those I love passing away.
What a depressing way to start a blog post right? Sorry, but church got me thinking today.
Death is a scary topic, that no one talks about much. You have probably had someone close to you pass away, as have I. Two close friends, Great-Grandparents, and an infant cousin. I have actually been fairly fortunate to not experience a lot of tragedy in my life, and for that I am truly grateful.
What I am even more grateful for is my faith in a loving Heavenly Father. You see, I believe that He loves us so much, that He devised a plan where families can be together forever. I'll see my friends and family after I die in Heaven. Isn't that beautiful?
We talked about this in church today. I thought it ironic that it was the same day I chose to wear a certain piece of jewelry. A watch that was given to me by my deceased Great-Grandmother, before she died. I hardly ever wear it, and on the day that I did I was reminded that she isn't that far away, I'll see her again.

I believe that I will be reunited with those I love in Heaven. This brings me so much joy! I'll believe it for you too ;)
