The in-between time

Sorry, but I did not note where I found the following...

You live in the in-between time, waiting for the completion, for Easter promise and beginning to come full.  Now you suffer.  Your loved ones die.  Your pets die.  Your plants die.  Cars rust.  Paint chips. Wood rots.  All things are coming undone.  And we carry too many biers out to the cemetery.  But Jesus died, and Jesus lives, and Jesus loves you and will bring you home.  Your day will come...Your children will not be taken from you forever.  Your sorrow will end.  Because our judgment is coming, but Jesus lives.
