In a Better Place

Today, God called my paternal grandmother, Lourdes Yance De Guzman, to her final Home. She’s now in Heaven with my grandfather — whom we lost last October 6 — along with the other saints who have fallen asleep in Christ.

I hold on to the promise in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17:

“According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.”

Please pray for those they have left behind, especially my dad, who has lost both his parents this month. Thank you, and have a blessed All Saints’ Eve and Day.

    It’s really devastating to lose two grandparents successively. I’m keeping my promise: I’m praying for you and your family. Take Care.

    Come to think of it, your grandparents are now together in a better place; away from all the hassles and troubles of life here on earth.
