And with that final piece of the puzzle the funeral audience was standing and praising God for this amazing promise.
A promise, a present tense reality for every generation, a place of safety all promised by a person who is able to make it true for each one who trusts him.
"But that's not the best part..." will be words we will hear in heaven over and over again. How sweet to catch a glimpse of it now.
