My uncle just passed away Friday night. Although we were not blood related, we were fairly close.
I'm trying to be sad, but I can't be. I am happy.
Let me explain.
My uncle had cancer and he was always in pain. For most of that time he could still function - he could still travel the world and teach - but it was somewhat difficult.
Near the end, things made a quick escalation and his condition became terrible. He even lost use of his legs.
We all wanted him to get better, and now he has. He feels good again.
Now I can't help but frequently think of that and what his reaction must be meeting God.
There is some debate on if we meet God immediately after death or wait until the rapture, but does it matter? My mind automatically thinks about my uncle's intense joy, excitement, and wonder. As MercyMe's very good song says, "I Can Only Imagine" what that must be like.
And that gives me joy.
