I was just relaxing on my couch, reading “When You Can’t Come Back”, by Dave & Jan Dravecky. It’s a story about Dave’s major league baseball career and his experiences with cancer. The last lines of Chapter 4 made a real impact on me and I felt compelled to share it here. It says, “…with every death of someone we love, our longing for heaven grows stronger, because that is where our heart is, taken there a piece at a time by the ones we loved on this earth.” What a powerful statement! I know a piece of my heart has moved on to my eternal home.
