Millie opens up her heart...

As we drive in a thunderstorm to our next service opportunity, we share a note we got from Millie.

The Bittersweetness of Life

It’s only day 2, and that deep aching in my heart still persists, that longing for more of last week. Never did I think I would be so sentimental and so attached.  Never did I think this trip – my teammates would be held so dearly to my heart.  So as I’ve pondered and questioned my feelings throughout today, the Lord graciously revealed that last week was the closest taste of what heaven is like for me.  Besides being in direct conmmunio with our beloved Lord, which should be the given primary desire of a true Christian, heaven is the place with His people, His family – just as last week, my teammates were my beloved family.  Furthermore, of my 23 years in life, last week was the most joyful I’ve ever been – a natural overflow of carefree joy of a child.  Now, of course it sucks to have to be pulled back to ”earth,” but thank God I now know heaven is definitely worth perservering and waiting for.
Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away… And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them.  They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe ever tear from thier eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” -Revelation 21:1-4
