Treasures in Heaven

Matthew 6:19-21
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

We can have things to remind us of our treasures, but those things in and of themselves are not the treasure. Those we love and show love to are the real treasures.

Megan showed us how to love and to prepare for the future. While it may be a long journey before we see her and our other loved ones again, we know with our whole hearts that we will see them again.

A few weeks ago our pastor gave us a visual of the concepts of life and death here on earth and in heaven that has been helpful. Here on earth we endure the laws of subtraction. Everyone has a limited amount time on earth and our family members are taken from us one by one. In Heaven, our time is infinite and those we love just keep coming and coming and coming. What a Celebration that will be!
