Revelation 21

I used to be scared to death of the book of Revelation. I mean, I can remember crying to my mom after hearing a sermon about it at church in junior high. I remember asking her if she thought maybe God could just wait to come back after I was married and had a family. See where my priorities have been my whole life? Ha! Anyway, as years have gone by and I've become more mature in my faith thinking about His return doesn't scare me at all. In fact, there are a lot of times I sit with my mom and wonder how much longer can the world take this kind of pain. Eternity is going to be so much better than this.

1Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3And 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. 4He 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."

Beautiful! I also love the 35th chapter of Isaiah. Your mom is such a beautiful lady. She is so blessed to have such a supporting family.
