Replying to

Good "Monday!" afternoon Robert - thank you for all the great quotes today. Enjoy the rest of your day Robert!


I've always been a believer that everything happens for a reason. You may not know what that reason is/was for a long time though.

Replying to

Same here Jack... you may not know right away, but sometimes it becomes very clear later down the road. Enjoy your afternoon! Thank you!


Gold morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. When things are going bad for you, trust God and believe in His Son, Jesus Christ, and see what amazing things that happen to you. Have a blessed day today and always.

By Billy Graham   •   September 29, 2009   •   Topics: Death, Heaven


What happens to us in the first minute after we die? Do we enter heaven immediately, or do our souls go into some kind of a sleep until the end of time, when our souls and our bodies will be reunited? I've always had lots of questions about heaven.


The Bible doesn’t answer all our questions about heaven…

Replying to

I always have that trust Gene. Nicely said and thank you for the post today. Still missing you at coffee in the morning. Hope you and Linda have a great day!
