Psalm 139:16-18 "All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God. How vast the sum of them. Were I to count them they would outnumber the grains of sand. When awake I am still with you."
Graduated to Heaven: August 20, 2013, Cayucos, CA
God says "The day of your death is better than the day of your birth. – Ecclesiastes 7:1) (wow)
2 Cor. 5:8 – "We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord."
The tumbling of the sea glass tells the Biblical truth.
We (Nancy) is being (was) changed from one glory to another – 2 Cor. 3:18
Nancy has her New Body !
2 Cor. 5:1-9 – For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.
Living Above "See"Level
The Bible speaks about our "looking unto Jesus – the author of our faith." While Cayucos is reported to be at 60 feet above sea level, Nancy has reported that her "see level" is over and above that which we can even think or speak.
The day before she died, she asked me to get the new card of an eagle that was being enclosed with my CD messages It had to do about the wings of an eagle – taking us ABOVE see level. (Isa. 40:31) She wanted it next to her chair in which she sat. It reads: "But they (Nancy) who wait for the Lord (who expect, look for, and hope in Him) shall change and renew their strength and power; they (Nancy) shall lift their (her) wings and mount up (close to God) as eagles (mount up to the sun – "Son") they (Nancy) shall run and not be weary, they (Nancy) shall walk and not faint or become tired." She will overcome her Parkinson – either here or there!
The early morning of the day she died, she asked me to get her sunglasses. Now, this is, like, 3:00 in the morning. I told her I knew they were on the top of the trunk in the entry way. I'll get them. I did ----put them next to her pillow. Why was she asking for the sun glasses?? I can only imagine a glimpse of Heaven with the brightness of Jesus and the glory and majesty of that place. Within a few hours, she went to sleep here and woke up there: There are many scriptures about:
The brightness of Jesus: - The brightness of Heaven - The brightness of the glory of God - Was Nancy getting a glimpse and experiencing such as did Stephen in Acts 7:51?
Do you have your "sun glasses" = I can relate or take off with that to your salvation through Jesus. Remember,
"It is appointed men once to die and after that the Judgment." No better place or time than now to pray that prayer to our Lord. "Lord Jesus, I am a sinner, please save me through your atoning blood shed on the cross, and greet me when I graduate."
The name Nancy in Hebrew is Chana, and means gracious.
The Rev. Roger Evey, The Gathering Place, Morro Bay, Calif. Awaiting the fly over to scatter the ashes of her earthly body. Remember dust to dust, ashes to ashes. Nancy now has a new Parkinson free spiritual body and I, like many others, believe she is now even watching "her" event!
