Your “third birth” day

The unexpected death of him; the “I knew it was coming” death for her. Timing and expectations vary, but no one escapes.


* * * * *        

On our original birth day, we begin life fresh. No memory. No past.

New beginnings. We go forward.

It’s a second new beginning. We celebrate. We go forward. With intentional purpose.

But two-year-olds are temporary. The third birth day inevitably comes. Always. The bridge between two and three may be as long as 80 years, or as short as a day. 

As two ends and three begins, we disconnect from physicality. We go forward as the most complete version of who we are. Now our very best. In His fullest Presence.

Two-year-olds don’t dread turning three.
Neither should we.

For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
Philippians 1:21

From of old no one has heard or perceived by the ear, no eye has seen a God besides you, who acts for those who wait for him.
Isaiah 64:4

Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.
1 John 3:2

Such a great way of looking at death and what awaits us in Heaven.
