Changing Homes

Thirteen years ago this morning, our family was busily making funeral arrangements for my father, Chester W. Fisher. Dad passed into the presence of the King just before midnight on the 21st of May, 1992. How we miss him!

Over the course of several months dad changed "homes" several times. He went from the family home he helped to build in the mid 4o's to his home in the hospital and then to his eternal, heavenly home that Jesus had gone to prepare. His body went made a brief stop at the funeral home and then was laid to rest at Rosemount Gardens.

The Old Homestead

Dad was finally "home" with Grandma and Grandpa Fisher (his parents), Uncle Frank (his brother who had died from a wasp sting in 1961) and millions of others who had trusted Christ as Savior and Lord and settled their eternal destiny (and destination).

As Christian pilgrims (ones who have committed our lives to Jesus Christ) we are all heading to that "home" where God reigns and all tears will be wiped from our eyes. We will see Jesus, the One who gave His life to give us eternal life.

Are you on the road to heaven today? Or, are you still wandering in sin, without God and without hope in this world. Confess your sin, accept God's forgiveness, begin the journey "home" today and thank God for His marvelous, amazing grace.

See you at "home"!
