Taken Home

On Saturday morning one of our dear friends, Keith Beasley, was taken home to be with the Lord. While we are mourning the loss of him on this earth, there is peace in knowing that he has been healed and made whole. He is home.
Keith was a Christian, a sweet husband, a loved son, brother and friend. He will truly be missed.
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.Now 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 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 with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and 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. 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." 2 Corinthians 4:16-5:8
Keith will forever live in our hearts and memories.
"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die."
John 11:25-26
Please keep his sweet wife, precious son, family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.

I just love that one who helps us make our earthy homes lovely honors the One Who has prepared our home for eternity.
