Love That Transcends Death

30 08 2010

When we belong to God, loving Him first, and the people we love also belong to God, then we do not lose them when they die.
The relationship is simply interrupted until we, too, finish our earthly business.
It is as if the web of love woven among all of us is lifted into another dimension, anchor by anchor, person by person.
The connections are still intact, just temporarily invisible.
When it is my turn to die, I will find the network ready and waiting for me, in the larger network of the love of God.
