People from all over the world are mourning the death of Barbara Bush. The former first lady passed away Tuesday night at the age of 92.
Of all of her many accomplishments, perhaps the most impressive is the fact that Barbara and her husband, former president George H. W. Bush, were married for 73 years! Their years together contained both great joy and great sadness, but theirs is a love story for the ages. The part about her passing that saddens me the most is to think that their love story has come to an end.
Or has it? Those of us who believe in Jesus understand that we will one day be reunited with our loved ones who have died in Christ. What a wonderful reunion that will be!
So, for those married couples who trust in Jesus, the love story never comes to an end. It simply awaits a glorious climax!
“For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.”—1 Thessalonians 4:14.
