A song for Darcie, Tilly, Harry, Hettie, Pippa, Digby, Albert, Alfred, Beatrice, and all children.
The life-cycle of the butterfly, from an egg, to a caterpillar, to sleeping as a chrysalis and awaking with wings to fly, is a wonder of creation. It hints at the life to follow!
Now, brothers, we do not wish you to be ignorant concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you be sad as others who have no expectation. For if we believe that Yahushua died and rose again, so also Elohim shall bring with Him those who sleep in Yahushua. For this we say to you by the word of the Master, that we, the living who are left over at the coming of the Master, shall in no way go before those who are asleep. Because the Master Himself shall come down from heaven with a shout, with the voice of a chief messenger, and with the trumpet of Elohim, and those who sleep in Messiah shall rise first. Then we, the living who are left over, shall be caught away together with them in the clouds, to meet the Master in the air – and so we shall always be with the Master. Therefore, encourage one another with these words.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
