It's Not "Goodbye", but "See Ya' Later!"

March 17th, 2014

Please be in prayer for my family. My Uncle Mark has gone to be with the Lord. Please pray for this precious family, for my Dad & his brothers (Pete, Tim, Andy) and especially for Mark's wife (Darlene). Please also be in prayer for Mark's parents (Ron & Joy) and Mark's children (Ben, Jessica) and their spouses and grandchildren, as well as extended family.

We have all been shocked by this sudden turn of events, and we are saddened by the loss of such a great man, yet overjoyed by knowing he is no longer suffering from pain, sickness and sin in the midst of a fallen world. When we know the King of Eternity, we no longer fear death. We may mourn for a season, but there is hope in our tears; there is no fear in death. It is not "goodbye", but "see ya later" Uncle Mark! Please save me a spot in the choir next to you! 

No More Night - Sung by David Phelps, Written by Walter S. Harrah

The timeless theme

Earth and heaven will pass away
It's not a dream

God will make all things new that day
Gone is the curse
From which I stumbled and fell
Evil is banished to eternal hell

No more night
No more pain
No more tears
Never cryin' again
And praises to the great I Am
We will live in the light of the risen Lamb

See all around
Now the nations bow down to sing
The only sound is the praises to Christ, our King
Slowly the names from the book are read
I know the King, there's no need to dread

No more night
And no more-ore pain
No more tears
Never cryin' again
And praises to the great I Am
We will live in the light of the risen Lamb

See over there
There's a mansion prepared for me
Where we will live with my Saviour eternally...

No more night
And no more pain
No more tears
Never cryin' again
And praises to the great I Am
We will live in the light of the risen Lamb
We will live in the light of the risen Lamb...
