For Miss Patty And Her Family
Last week Grampa Yade who is a great Sunday School story teller told us a great one in the evening gospel service
Keep in mind that every week Grampa Yade has little bags of candy that he makes up for the little kids and he hands them out to them afterwards.
Last week was different.It was Grampa's turn to preach.
He showed us a big plastic bag that he had brought with him and he took something out of it.
"See children. Here is a beautiful sea shell and I am going to give you each one at the door after the meeting. They are all different sizes and different colors.
Now what you see here is just what it is called..It is just a shell!
There used to be a living creature in this shell and now it is gone.
Just like the soul of a person. When a person dies, their soul is gone and the body they leave is just a shell. That soul will either go to heaven or hell. That is why it is very very important children that you are ready when death comes. Death comes at any age! You must have a clean heart. There is no sin allowed in heaven
"The blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanseth us from all sin."
When your heart is cleansed with the precious blood of Jesus, your soul will be ready for heaven and the shell that you leave behind will some day be reunited with your soul and spirit when the Lord comes to take us Home..FOREVER!"
Now as I listened to this, I could not help but think of Miss Patty and her family as they were bidding their dear Mother, Grandmother and Great Gramma so long.
Gramma T has left a beautiful shell behind but she is in heaven now and soon we shall all be there [ whoever has trusted the Lord].
We will all meet her in the morning!
Dearest T family you are ever in our thoughts and prayers!......Love Bernie and Terry
