All Saint’s Day

Happy All Saint’s Day.

Today we remember the lives of those that have gone before us.  We raise a toast to those who have seen their faith become sight. We remember the lives of those who worked to embody the life of Christ, who have known Him and who have made Him known.

We remember and are thankful that life does not end in death, that in fact death breathes new life and that when this world has melted away we will be found whole, complete and entirely enveloped by Christ.

Today I am thankful for a God that speaks, that is alive and that is present. I am thankful for examples of faith, for mentors, for parents and for friends who have helped light the way. What a blessing it is to be surrounded by such a cloud of witness and to receive such a wonderful inheritance.
